Week 12 (Day 01): Yoshihide Momotani’s Panda

Origami Panda Face

There are a whole lot of origami pandas! Yoshihide Momotani’s panda head is among the simpler ones. I like the way the features are captured and how close to a real panda it is, given the simplicity of the folds.

I had wanted the picture to look like the panda is coming out of a foliage, with just the head sticking out 🙂 Wonder if that impression is conveyed though!!

Week 11 (Day 06): Jack-o’-Lantern

Origami Jack o Lantern

Jack-o’-Lanterns are quite common origami models and these range from the ultra simple to the more complex ones.

This Jack-o’-lantern is from one of the Origami Tanteidans. Book 17 to be precise. I have previously worked on a couple of designs from this book and this was the third one.

After completing the design, I felt that it would have been better if the yellow/orange had formed the majority of the design, with white teeth and eyes. But this is as per the instructions in the book.
