Absol by Cahoonas Absol by Cahoonas
Designed and folded from one sheet of 16" square uncut Kozo

It's been a while since I've uploaded anything! I decided to design a pokemon this time around and went with Absol. Since the limbs all seem to thicken near the ends, I went with a box-pleat approach built on a 24x24 grid. As a quadrapedal creature, the base was straightforward enough to fold, but the detailing itself ended up being somewhat complicated. Since the head is asymmetrical, I ended up rearranging and swiveling layers so much that I'm not sure if I could recreate this exact look if I were to fold this model again! All in all, this guy took about 5 hours to finish, and MC was applied to hold the details.

Nice work. Have you tried adding in a color change? It shouldn't be too difficult, since the appropriate flaps are from edges anyway, and I think it would make it much more recognizable, since Absol has that whole Yin-Yang theme going for it.

Yeah, I originally planned for a color change, but with the way I currently have the layers it's impossible to color the face since it's pulled from a center flap. Perhaps one day I'll redesign this for a color change.

I think your origami is really great, but it can present in a better way.
Maybe you need speed a little work on photography, which will make your Papercraft more impressive.o(∩_∩)o..

Search  tutorial on DA and you will find many of them. 
Or you can use Photoshop to enhance your picture.
starting from learning the basic knowledge such as Shooting angle, Composition of a picture, Lights, Color tendency will help you a lot.
I've learned for a couple of weeks about paperfolding and I know that it isn't a easy job.  
Your works are fantastic, but the picture you took just not that attractive,which is a pity I think.
Love your work!
