|Material||One uncut square of 20 inch kami paper, blue on one side and white on the other|
This model continues my recent trend of utilizing 22.5 degree angles in my origami designs. As with many of my other models, I approached this one by designing one part first and then grafting more paper as needed for the rest of the body. In this case, the sequence was: Start with head only > Add torso > Add lower body > Add legs. When deciding how much paper to add at each step, I tried to balance efficient paper usage with easy to find reference points for folds. My favorite part of this model is the face, especially the big nose. I also like the eyes and eyebrows. The arms are shorter than I would have liked, but I'm satisfied with this model overall.
Detail shot. The big nose is my favorite part of this model.
