Big mouth & small brain

Cartoon Piranha


folded from painted drawing paper I got from Shaylin and Mahesh Parbhoo. (Thank you!)


Paper size: 21x21cm (the big one) and 9x9cm (the small one)


Check out the tutorial and fold your own piranha:


I designed this model for the ODT which is a challenge in the english origami forum. The topic is „fish“ and it's the semifinal round. First I designed an angel fish but I wasn't that satisfied about it. So I started a new attempt and came up with this cartoon origami.


As you can see there is a variation on the eye. The big fish has eyes on both sides. The smaller one has only on one side an eye (and a white square on the other side) but the model is locked on the eye and it holds it's shape better than the big fish.


If you fold this piranha it would be awesome if you post it on flickr! :)


Have a wonderful day,
