From today, I'm challenging myself not to balk when an origami design looks super complex or has a bazillion steps. Instead, I want to have a bash at everything that intrigues and inspires me, and to cultivate patience and hone my art in this way.
Here's my first conquest, a 112-stepper of a sheep that caught my eye a long while back. There are a couple of really nifty things about this Komatsu fold- 1) The colour change: we end up with one colour for the wool and the other for the face, legs and ears 2) A simple interlocking mechanism in the belly so the sheep keeps its shape 3) Such a super-sheepy face
The wool of the sheep would've been plain white, but I thought that'd be real dull...so I laser-printed some text onto the white side. Can anyone tell me what passage(s) I used?
It does have such a super sheepy looking face! It was worth the 112 steps, and the reason why this really stood out in my thumbnails was because it had printed text on its wool. For some reason it just makes it feel even more refined
