New Scaled Wyvern by Blue-Paper New Scaled Wyvern by Blue-Paper
Yay! It's finally done!

Designed and folded by me, Chad Killeen. Folded from one uncut square of paper.

This one took quite some time to make, not the whole folding process, but MC takes a while to dry :)

This one has a few modifacations from my previous one, nothing serious, just a few modifacations in a few places.

Chad, this is awesome!I know you all guys from flickr.......awesome!!!!
Do you have any "pure" box-pleats?(only and only 90 and 45 degree angles, that is????

Blue-Paper Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2010
yes,I have a few but box pleating isn't my prefered method of designing. Although you may not count them as 'pure' seeing as they use 3-4-5 triangles (or Pythagorean stretches I think they are also called)

Well I think your talents are far beyond that! ;)

I think you should make a life size human out of a piece of paper, that would be epic! :XD:

1. Can you post instructions for these.
2. How the heck do you plan the folds?
Reply
:iconblue-paper:
Blue-Paper Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2009
1. This is probably the best I can do for you [link] . I am not willing to devote hundreds of hours (that pobably isn't an exaggeration) to make a step by step process.

2. I usually start with choosing how I want to arrange all the limbs on the paper, choose the one that I feel looks best, try it out, that usually fails and then I just go back and try to work out the design from there; but if, or when, the design does work, then I work on refining the design: correcting places I feel could be better, working on a viable folding process and whatnot.

So there. Hope that answers your questions :)

It's done using a series of overlapping pleats, here's what it would look like unfolded [link]

That's a lot of scales.
I keep hearing about MC, but I don't know what it is. I assume it is some sort of glue for sticking tissue paper together to make stronger and thicker tissue paper.

Blue-Paper Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2009
Well, for starters, I didn't use tissue paper for this one. MC, or methylcellulose, is actually just wallpaper paste. It is used somewhat like a glue to get the paper to stick together or to make it so that it holds shape better. It is very useful if you want to make a model look really nice.

How big is the paper vs. the model? It looks really awesome, by the way. ^^
Reply
:iconblue-paper:
Blue-Paper Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2009
If I remember correctly, the paper was about 25 inches. The model itself is about 12 inches from the head to the tail.
