Hippogriff by synconi Hippogriff by synconi
UPDATE 23/09/13: A few close-ups


Are you folding something for THE FOLDING CHALLENGE yet?? :eager:



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 :icondancemonkeydanceplz:

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!

:heart:


+ 40 x 40cm square of kraft paper; 3 hours
+ Final size: body of length 13.5cm
+ Designed by Manuel Sirgo, diagrammed in "Origami Tanteidan 14"
+ Commissions

since you used a very big paper on this, how big is this hip-creature? :noes:

In comparison to any everyday objects like a coin, a mug or a car? :confused: :lmao:

It's a very good result, regardless of whether you are used to complex models, or not.

:lmao: 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! =P

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?

I definitely didn't create THIS design, but I have started to come up with my own, yes! It's super exciting for me-> synconi.deviantart.com/gallery…
I always thought it would be impossible for me to ever come up with my own creations, actually...but all things are, apparently, possible :dance:
