Scaled Works of Satoshi Kamiya 2 01-03

Origami, Scaled Works of Satoshi Kamiya

I mentioned in the last one of these that I got the book Works of Satoshi Kamiya 2, and I would continue these scaling entries (27.9 cm square paper) with those models. Rather than having a new comparison model, I’ll still show them next to The Yellow Bird for scale. I figure that’ll be easier to compare models between books, and I just like that model a lot.

WOSK_201 - JAPANESE MAPLE LEAF (1) WOSK_201 - JAPANESE MAPLE LEAF (2) WOSK_201 - JAPANESE MAPLE LEAF (3) WOSK_201 - JAPANESE MAPLE LEAF (5)

The book’s first model is a Japanese Maple Leaf. I made it out of a thicker paper (which I tried on several other models, but it wasn’t always a great idea) and out of shiny silver paper, for some reason. The red one is the scaled one. It’s a simple model but elegant on both sides

.WOSK_202 - GOLDEN RETRIEVER (1) WOSK_202 - GOLDEN RETRIEVER (2) WOSK_202 - GOLDEN RETRIEVER (3) WOSK_202 - GOLDEN RETRIEVER (4) WOSK_202 - GOLDEN RETRIEVER (6)

Second is his Golden Retriever. He’s nice, but what to say about him? I mean, I like the dogs, but Golden Retrievers don’t really have a standout feature, like a smooshed face or an antenna. He kind of reminds me of the later lion model (I’m not sure why, other than the colour), so, maybe he’s lionhearted?

WOSK_203 - ASIATIC ELEPHANT (1) WOSK_203 - ASIATIC ELEPHANT (2) WOSK_203 - ASIATIC ELEPHANT (3) WOSK_203 - ASIATIC ELEPHANT (4)

The third one (and last today) is an Asiatic Elephant. The trunk is supposed to curve into implied eyes, but I didn’t do that too well. The reverse-coloured tusks make me think it has a happy feel to the face, but maybe it’s my imagination.
