Ribbon Kitty v2

(Ribbon Kitty says "Hi!")

DesignedNov 2020
Crease PatternYes

Whereas I started designing v1 by focusing on the bow, I started designing v2 by focusing on the ears. A lot of paper was wasted around the ears in v1. In v2, I tried to replicated the shape of the ears and head in a way that uses less paper. The rest of the body and bow was formed using the remaining paper.

I always thought that v1 was too inefficient, so v2 was my attempt at a more efficient version. Although the ratio of the final model height to the starting paper side length is indeed higher (~0.45 now vs ~0.37 before) and the paper layers are less thick around the middle, there is still room for improvement. The head shape looks a bit off, the lower body is too small compared to the head, and the bow is not as neat as in the previous version.

I later designed Ribbon Kitty v3 which address these flaws, and is what I consider to be a visual improvement over v2.
