A Reflecting Duckling by FoldedWilderness
A Reflecting Duckling

Question about a change in focus

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 6, 2014, 6:49 AM


I have just replied to a question by rainylake about my recent long absence from DeviantArt and this made my wonder about possibly returning soon.

The only problem is that I have not been doing Origami in some time now and while I plan to return to them in the future, right now that leaves me with only a few unpublished images from the previous years.


What I have been doing recently is trying to take wildlife photography.   I enjoy 'the hunt' and being in nature very much, so I have been spending my spare time on this a lot.


So then my question is this:

Would it be fine if I started posting my less terrible wildlife pictures?        (which are mainly birds, since they are everywhere and easier to get close to)


Or should I just start a new account for these?



Lastly, since I have been away for several months, I did not take time to thank people who commented and gave 'favorites' to my works so I would like to do so now:

Thank you very much to everyone who stopped by and showed they enjoy my works, it's always appreciated.

August Unicorn (origami) by FoldedWilderness
August Unicorn (origami)
From Merriam-Webster:

   august:  Marked by majestic dignity or grandeur 
  August:   the eighth month of the Gregorian calendar


When trying to find a title for this Unicorn, I realized that august is a very fitting word to describe such a fantasy animal.
Being the right month for it is an awesome coincidence, even though I barely made it in time.


This unicorn is folded from a single square sheet of mulberry paper, painted white on both sides with acrylic paint beforehand.
Yes, I painted an already white paper because this type of paper is so soft that it would not hold its shape without the paint layers to harden it a little.
The design is from Roman Diaz, it is his oldest (as far as I can tell) of several Unicorn models.

An Unlikely Friendship by FoldedWilderness
An Unlikely Friendship
The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, 
not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship;
it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when
you discover that someone else believes in you
and is willing to trust you with a friendship.

       – Ralph Waldo Emerson

I found this tiny little snake in the grass when walking along a river path.
I was looking for a place to setup a family picture with four origami foxes but, this was a fun opportunity to do something different.

The snake was only about 7 inches long and it was relatively easy to work with, although I suspect it probably would have rather stay in the grass.
I didn't bother it too long and let it go back home quickly.

The origami fox is a variant from the model designed by Komatsu Hideo. It is mad
e from a single uncut piece of mulberry paper, painted red with acrylics on one side.

Thank you very much to Mouselemur for sugesting this image for a Daily Deviation, to Brookette for accepting to feature it and to all who stopped by.   :hug:

Origami Panda Family by FoldedWilderness
Origami Panda Family
"Family is not an important thing. It's everything." 
    -Michael J. Fox

Each of these pandas is folded from a single square sheet of mullberry paper, pre-painted white on one side and black on the other, with acrylic paint.

The mother is made from a model by Fumiaki Kawahata and the little ones are my own small variations.

Yes, I am doing ok.

I have been mostly offline since August, visiting DA once in a while and sometimes thinking about coming back.

I have not made origami in a long time, though and shifted my attention since late summer to wildlife but, I don't have good equipment to take great shots (nor the expertise, either.) so I am not sure about posting my stuff.

Thank you very much for taking the time to stop by and ask if I was alright.  :)
