Origami Giraffe by FoldedWilderness Origami Giraffe by FoldedWilderness
This origami giraffe is folded from a single square of painted paper.
I had folded a model prior to this one and marked the paper to find out where the limbs where (then unfolded it to get the crease pattern). I then painted the paper for this model accordingly, to have the spots in the right places.
It worked rather well, except that there are missing spots on the other side of the giraffe, I guess I painted the wrong area of the paper for that side.

The model was designed by John Montroll.

Montroll's is a classic but, there are a few other worthy models, notably the ones by Hideo Komatsu and Satoshi Kamiya.

I am not kidding when I say that I thought this was a real giraffe in the thumbnail. Then I did a double-take and it turned to paper. :XD:
