Crease Pattern Challenge 043

Crease Pattern Challenge, Origami

I’ve been pretty busy with other stuff, although I have been working on improving my King Ghidora and Mothra (it’s pretty slow though). For now, I have some on the next Crease Pattern Challenge.

Although, I’m only on 43? Huh, I thought I was further along. I have the next few folded (just no time to talk about them), so maybe that’s why.

Challenge #43 is Brian Chan’s Fiddler Crab. This one has annotations on the crease pattern to explain what’s what (shell, claw, leg, etc.). This is extra helpful because a couple of the legs are on the inside. There is also a version showing the logic, which is pretty interesting to those wanting to develop their own models.

I want to make a couple more of these, just so I can leave them around where I’m at. The fiddler crab is pretty cute. The two claws, where one is much larger, give the model an interesting asymmetry. But the shell and (most of all) the eyes give it great personality. Makes me remember some great crabs I know.
