In a recent conversation with ~Zen-PoD, I was saying how I'd not really made any super complex, bazillion-hours-of-folding models. I'm all about trying new things and artistic breakthroughs so, prompted by that and ~neubauten's complicated folds in my devWATCH, I've folded my first "complex" model, a hippogriff, relative of Buckbeak.
This used the largest square of paper I've ever folded and the longest time spent folding (excluding modulars). And...he's not turned out too shabbily
It's surprisingly difficult to come up with a good Hippogriff name. I've considered Bronzeclaw, Umberplume, Swiftwing, Stormpaw...any suggestions??
Thank you all for looking!

I remember when I read Twilight for the first time in '06, when I was young and a voracious reader...I swear, it only got so popular because Edward Cullen is a ginger. And heroes in novels are NEVER ginger. So people went insane at the novelty!
really? i always imagined him as having swimmer's hair. some sort of copper-brown color with shiny gold bits. i do swim, and i swear, the boys have nicer hair than the girls. LOL, the only ginger protagonists are girls. i never noticed that until now. and really, half the teen lit out there is only popular because the of the guys. i've read way too many books in which the main character is a blah female who does NOTHING. who's your fave teen lit female protagonist?
That would be SO COOL if all my origami would come to life...eventually, I'd love to have a mini sort of studio, you know. Giant table for folding and cutting paper, bookshelves for the many books I have, and models everywhere!
