My model for Day 2 of World Origami Days! Designed and folded by me, from one uncut 10″ square of typical origami paper, white on one side and gray on the other. I’m still trying to nail down the design for the head. I want to be sure I have it right, before I use the sheet of exquisite and expensive paper I bought from Origamido to fold one of these… The color change on the stomach was suggested by Michael LaFosse.

I’m pretty impressed.
Wow, I’m always so jealous of people able to make their own designs so easily. How did you learn to be able to design your own origami? I’ve always wanted to be able to myself, but can never quite wrap my mind around the folds of the paper to be able to understand how to create what I want without instructions.
It looks great by the way.
Thanks! Creating one’s own designs is often NOT easy. How did I learn? Largely by experimentation, and by imitation of techniques used in existing models. Robert Lang also has a great book on “Origami Design Secrets” that has helped me with some of my models. (I have the first edition, but I hope to get the second edition eventually.)
