Origami Rhino Instructions

Finally, here are the instructions for the rhino. I found out it is not a clean fold – the ending does not fold neatly. It is also not an easy fold, and it takes some work to get done.
That said, have fun with it, the end result does look OK.

After working on it, I managed to reverse engineer my origami rhino fold. Here’s how it’s going to look:

To reverse engineer it, I had to open my original fold, and try to reproduce the fold, a bit like working on a crease pattern. I did my first version on some draft paper, so now I have a total of three rhinos. I even managed to take a photo of them playing with each other, national geographic style (may be considered nsfw). Expect to see full instructions for the rhino sometime soon.

Some time ago, along with the newspaper, came a lottery ticket. Believing that gambling is a form of taxation for fools, it was just lying around. Then one day I discovered it has a ratio of exactly 3/1. I decided to try something new, and came up with the following creation, which I dub, ‘lottery spider’. It has a venomous, addictive sting, beware!

Stuff I folded while compiling…

Usually, I have tons of spare paper around. It comes with the job (student, programmer). I also like to fold. So when I’m thinking\resting\doing anything, I usually pick up a piece of paper, and start folding. This time, while doing compilation homework, I came up with two nice folds. Problem is, I don’t remember the way to fold them. If I want to find out, I’ll have to reverse engineer my own fold. That actually happens quite a lot to me. Maybe I’ll just open them and try to solve them as a crease pattern… It’s about time I learned how to do that.

Of course, anything I fold doesn’t really look as good as anything by ‘the masters’. Still it’s fun to fold.

Here are the results, a rhino, and something that looks remotely like the road-runner:
