The android's dream by synconi The android's dream by synconi
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? ;)

Thank you for looking!

This is excellent!
I really like the idea of print on the wool and the model is super cute too.
