Stag beetle

Designed and folded by me

One uncut square of handmade Paper

48x48 cm

36x36 grid :D


Something about the design:

First of all, you need to know that I hate precreasing, so I usually try to design my models on as small grids as possible.

In the beginning, I studied Kota Imais great insects. So I learned how to fold the small spikes on the legs. Once I had this, I tried arranging everything.

The 36 grid seemed to fit perfect,so I continued designing it. I tried to arrange it as effective as possible to include all Details.


I chose such a big size since I didn´t knew if I could fold it small.I used a handmade paper I bought from Boesner.It took me some time to pre-crease everything.Collapsing the model was really fast,but shaping it took even longer.


I will show the CP soon.
