Origami Scorpion by FoldedWilderness Origami Scorpion by FoldedWilderness
This scorpion is one of the most complex design I've folded but, it was not as hard as others I've tried; thanks in large parts to a great tutorial made by Tadashi Mori, the designer himself.

This is the first time I paint a model after folding, because I was afraid that it would add too much thickness to the paper if I painted beforehand, since there are many overlapping layers in some parts.
Although I would have rather not painted over it; the folds are still very visible and it does look nice like this.

The tutorial for this model can be found on Tadashi Mori's Youtube page. [link]

Very Well done, the pose is very lifelike. Even the shiny blackness represents the shell in a realistic way. What sort of paint did you use?

Thank you! For this one, I used very cheap acrylic paint from a dollar store. The black is the only paint that shines like this, the other colors were not so vibrant and actually kinda watered down a bit.

Have you attempted a praying mantis yet? Something tells me you'd be able to do it.

No, this was my first insect-like model, with the long thin legs. A praying mantis would be a cool model to try, I'll definitely look into finding a good one to try later on.

Thank you for the comment! :)
