First Attempt at a Dollar-Bill Pig

Newer Older

Someone asked about a Pig folded from a dollar bill, so I thought I'd give it a try. This was my first attempt, just doing some free-hand folding. Oops. I ran out of paper at the head.

So it looks a bit more like a sick cross-breed between a pig and a Bison... not quite what I was going for.

I'll adjust the torso proportions and give it another try. That, and I need to get a tail in there somehow... I'm sure it's possible.

    That's not too bad.

    It's not too good, either. But I don't normally fold this sort of thing, so I'm open to suggestions.

    Seriously though, there's NO HEAD.

    well, maybe it's a pig after a trip to the barbershop.

    Um, representation?

    It reminds me of an animal that I can't remember the name of right now. It's sort of pig-like, and either dark brown or black. I think it lives in Australia or someplace warm. If I think of the name, I'll come back and let you know.

    Eric, Eric? I'm worried it resembles a living thing-Do the gods approve? What's next? Cranes with hearts on the wings?

    Actually I think the face would be better if you tucked in the lower bit angling the bottom upward. I could be wrong, but that might reduce the grazing bison effect.

    well, I'll try it again and try to make it more... piglike.

    it'll take a few goes to get it sorted. It's really pretty easy, this animal folding business, if you try not to make it too complicated.

    I ran out of paper for the head, so I just pulled out some bits of paper at the edge. a proper pig head should have a snout and everything, some eye bits, and all that.

    Don't worry, I'm not making a life change here towards the dark side...

    And actually, I have cranes that I folded with grafted segments onto the wings- they could easily have hearts on them... that's a good idea :)

    @ noricum: a hippo? a tapir?

    you know... a bit more snout and it would be our dog!

    Yeah, I noticed it had a buddy-like shape to it. I'll have to try that another time, with something black.

    And I tried to fold a second one this morning; I was *less* than impressed with my results. It was horrible.

    I think it's a message that I should stick to what I know :)
