Krypto

Origami, Original Designs

WKO_042 - KRYPTO (102)

How can you not like Krypto, the Superdog? The whole idea really stretches the internal story logic of the Superman story, but it just works. Superman might doubt his purpose, fight himself for some reason, or be basically a different, super dark character, but a super dog is such a loyal and heroic symbol, Krypto feels more Superman than Superman.

This model was a bit difficult to get the dog and cape/crest with a colour change. He has a little tail too, but that’s a bit hard to see in these pictures. I think he came out ok, and I developed a pretty good nine tailed fox as an offshoot of him.

American Bison / Buffalo

Origami, Original Designs

I’ve been doing diagrams for some of my models recently, but I still have come up with a couple of new models. The most recent is and American Bison. In the United States, it’s usually called a buffalo, even though it’s not a buffalo buffalo. I usually call it a “buffalax” for unknown reasons.

I came up with the head first, then the body, then completely changed the head. A bison is fuzzier towards the head, which is shown by a colour flip. The model has ears, horns, and a fuzzy neck thing.

It turned out better than I thought it would. It’s extremely front heavy though, so it needs some help standing.
