Paper crane stop-motion by synconi Paper crane stop-motion by synconi
Only four days left, are you folding something for September's FOLDING CHALLENGE yet?? :iconpumpkinlaplz:


This is something I've wanted to do for AGES, make a stop-motion of a piece of paper becoming some origami animal. My first animation in a very long time, and a VERY time-consuming one at that...hope you like!

(Also, I started a Tumblr this week, so that I can assemble all my paper inspiration neatly in one place. Do you ever find you have too many plans and projects in your head, and not nearly enough time to do all the things you'd like??)

:heart:


+ A 10.5 x 10.5cm square of white printer paper
+ 73 frames
+ Commissions

This is a pretty well executed stop motion, and I love seeing the paper literally coming to life!

Thank you, darling! I saw the most fantastic stop-motion for an origami elephant recently and it nudged me to actually make my own. Finally. <333

That is really freaking cool! I love that first step where the paper collapses magically into a bird base, and the last bit with the flapping wings :)

I will stop watching this. Eventually. Maybe in 10min or so.

Hahahaha hope you had fun watching this :giggle:

I had a long think about which steps to show and considered actually showing the folding process instead of starting with a pre-creased square...but decided against it as I think this looks less clumsy.

Thank you, my friend, this means a lot! I've really missed making animations, you know, since my emoticon-making days ended. Maybe there'll be more of these someday soon :eager:

You will not believe the time I spent just looking for a good, free GIF software that would output high quality animations! That's the only thing I find annoying about having a Mac, less top notch freeware.

:nod: The GIMP is fine for smaller resolution things, but I've not figured out how to export high quality and high resolution animations...

And that is VERY true. :iconyesyesyesplz:

If you want to learn how to fold a crane, there's plenty of tutorials such as www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSijU5… :)
