The Fox

Origami, Original Designs

There are instructions: The Fox
Hope they’re ok; let me know any questions.

I asked a friend what origami he might like, and he said “a fox”. For some reason, I decided a good origami fox should have good origami fox toes. Couldn’t find one. I wasn’t just going to add toes to someone else’s fox, so I came up with this one.

He has a sort of odd design, so I was kind of unsure. People seem to like him tho, so that’s really nice.

Apparently, Red foxes only have dew claws on their front feet.

I took the first one to an art trail before giving him to my buddy.

While making instructions, I made quite a few foxes to make sure the diagrams and colours were right. Five were Red Foxes, with three of them normal coloured, one cross, and one silver (although the white got out of hand). The other I coloured like a Corsac Fox.

Crease Pattern Challenge 063

Crease Pattern Challenge, Origami

Tanteidan’s Crease Pattern Challenge #63 is Hoang Tien Quyet’s Fox. It’s a very stylized model with a crease pattern that isn’t as simple as it looks. It’s very elegant, and it’s one of these models I’ve made a few times before. This time, I found some of the older ones.

Here are three foxes, with one out of store origami paper. They all ended up with different faces.

I should probably look into wet folding techniques (I use water sometimes, but it’s not the same), because these would look even better with more developed curves. The sharpness in these ones looks pretty good to tho.
