Unicorn

I made this model over the summer and I guess I didn’t get a chance to post it despite how proud of it I was. I fabricated the entire model in my head and it worked perfectly the first time I tried to fold it. It’s only merit is being extraordinarily easy to fold as there is almost no definition of the body and no tail at all. It looks more like a giraffe but it has a horn so it is obviously a unicorn. The horn could easily be modified to be ears or ossicones (those horn like appendages on their heads) but I think the simplicity of the model is better than a more complex graft with a very simple body.

The arm is even shorter as the upper parts of it are connected to the head /neck and cannot move freely.

I had another go at making a Tyrannosaurus Rex unicorn hybrid and I went with a more simplistic approach, cutting the toes and fingers in favor of a more exaggerated head and body. I like the more cartoonish proportions especially considering the subject matter.

Origami giraffes are difficult because of  neck and legs and the amount of paper that needs to be dedicated to in order to achieve such proportions. I made a first draft of the head, attempted to graft a body on, then modified the head after several revisions of the body. Overall, I think it is one of the more polished models overall and I am happy with the result.

One of those random designs. I was trying to make a spider (hence the many points on the head) but the “legs” where taking up too much room and I thought it looked cute as an axolotl so I made a tongue. Then I realized I didn’t have enough room for a body so I cut it short at a snake body.
