Origami Ox (Bernie Peyton) – Part 1

Origami Ox (Bernie Peyton) – Part 1


Hello! Today we will be folding an
Origami Ox designed by Bernie Peyton. This model is quite simple to fold, and
it requires minimal shaping for such an outstanding result. This model requires
one square sheet of paper with color on one side and white on the other. We’re going to start with the white side
up, and we’re going to fold in half horizontally. So we’re going to take this
top edge and fold it down to the bottom edge. As we do this, we’re only going to
crease a little portion on the left side of the model. We’re just going to use that as a
reference for a later crease, so just make a tiny little crease on the left side of
the model, and then you can unfold. Now we’re going to take this top corner
and we’re going to fold it over to where this left edge and this crease that we
just created intersect. So let’s just take this corner, bring it
over, and as soon as it aligns with that crease and the left edge, then we can just
make a crease. But try to make this a very light crease because we’re only
going to be using it as a reference for a later crease. So just try to make it a
really light crease, and then you can unfold. Now we’re going to take this bottom edge
and we’re going to align it with this crease that we just created. So let’s just take it, and you can start
at the very bottom where this edge and this crease intersect, and you’re just
going to start to align this edge right down there. And you’re going to continue
to align it all the way up that crease until the whole edge aligns, just like
this. And once the whole edge aligns, then we’re just going to make a short little
crease at the very top up here. Again, this is for a reference for a later crease,
so we’re just going to make a little crease at the very top. And then you can
unfold! Now you’re going to notice that there’s
two creases on this left edge. There’s one horizontal crease and
there’s one that’s more diagonal, so we’re just going to be focusing on this
diagonal crease, which is the higher crease, and what we’re going to do with
that crease is use it as a reference point for this next one. So what we’re going to do is take this
top edge and we’re just going to start to pull it down. And we’re going to pull
it down until you notice that it has reached that top crease (the more
diagonal one). So just keep pulling it down until you’ve reached that point. So
as soon as it intersects with that point there, then you can start to make your
crease on the left side. And then what you want to do is align this edge with
the edge underneath down here, so that you make a nice straight crease. And then you
do the same on the right side. And then once you’re done, then you just make a
nice crease all the way across, just like this. Now we want to crease on the layer below this colored
edge here. So to do this, we have to fold this bottom edge up. So let’s just start, and as you fold it
up, you’re going to notice that it will stop as soon as you hit this colored
edge. So just start to pull it up, and as soon as it reaches that colored edge,
then you can just make your crease. So you can do that all the way across until
you have one nice crease all the way across. And when
you’re done with that, then you can unfold. Then and you can unfold this big
flap here. So when you’re done, you should be back
to the square. Now I’ve marked only the most important
creases that will need for the next few steps. So what we have to do next is fold the
model in half vertically. So let’s take this left edge and fold it over to this
right edge. Align the edges and then make a crease. And once you’re done, then you can unfold it. Now we’re going to create a crease where
this bottom edge and this vertical crease meet. So just right here, and we’re going to
make it extend to this top left corner. So it’s just going to be a crease like
that. So to do this, let’s start by bringing
this corner, this bottom left corner, over. And we’ll just bring it over until this
part of the crease hits that vertical crease running down the middle there. Now there’s no exact spot to put it over here, but you’ll notice that it probably
won’t align with this top left corner. So to make that align with that, all you
have to do is drift the crease over. So just pull it over to the left side until
it aligns with that corner. And as soon as it does, when it comes to a nice point,
then we can make our crease. So as soon as it aligns with this and this, then you just crease the middle
connecting them both. And then you can unfold. Now we’re going to do the same thing on
the right side. We’re going to create a crease that extends from where this
bottom edge and this middle crease intersect, all the way up to this top
right corner. So to do that, we’re just going to do the
same thing that we did before. So we’re going to take this bottom right corner, and we’re just going to pull it over until
this part of the crease lines up with this vertical crease here. And again, this
corner probably won’t align just yet, so what we have to do is just drift the crease
over, again keeping this point in the same location. So just drift it over, pull it more over to
the right, and as soon as it aligns, then you can make your crease. And once you’ve done that, then you can unfold. Now we’re going to turn the model over. And once it’s turned over, we’re just going to focus on this bottom-most
horizontal crease. And what we’re going to do with it is just fold up this bottom edge along
that crease. So just pull up the bottom edge, just like this, and then you can
just flip the model back over. Now we’re going to fold this bottom edge
up to align with this horizontal crease in the middle of the model. So let’s just take this, pull it, up and
align it as best as you can with that center crease. Once you’ve aligned it all the way across,
just make your crease, and then you can unfold. Now we’re going to turn the model over. And now we’re going to focus just on these three creases that I’ve marked
here. And this is the bottom of horizontal crease that we created, and
these are the two creases that extended from the bottom all the way up to either
corner. So what we want to do with these creases
is use them to create the eyes of our ox. So to do this, we’re going to start with
the bottom left corner and we’re going to pull it over until it aligns with
these two creases, where they intersect. But once you’ve done that, don’t make a
crease just yet. So it should be about here, and what you want to do is just go
a little bit past the intersection, or a little bit closer to the inside of the
model, still staying on this horizontal crease. You just pull it in just a little
bit, and then we’ll make our crease. So make sure that it’s not aligned exactly
with this crease here, but just a little bit off. And make sure it’s still aligned
with this horizontal crease. And then you can make your crease. And we’re going to
do the same thing on the right side. So just pull this corner up and align it
with that intersection, but just go a little bit past it, in towards the center
of the model. So just go a little bit farther than
that, and then make your crease. And once you’re done, it should look something
like this. Now we’re going to turn the model over. And once it’s turned over, we’re going to focus on these two
creases here. And what we’re going to do with those creases is fold in both of
these edges along them. So let’s start with this left edge, and
we’re just going to fold it in along that crease. And then just sharpen the
crease a bit, and then do the same thing on the right. So just along this crease, we’re just
going to fold in the right edge, and then again make your crease. And then you can turn the model over once again. Now we’re going to turn the model over. And once it’s turned over, we’re going to fold this bottom edge
that almost comes to a point, up to this top edge that’s completely flat. So we’re just going to pull this up, and
as you’re pulling it out, you’ll notice that there’s a vertical crease on this
top layer here and there is a vertical crease on this bottom layer here. So
we’re just going to align both of those vertical creases, and once you’ve done
that, then you can make a crease. And that shouldn’t be a very difficult crease to
make since there was already a crease there. And once we’re done, it should look
like this. And then you can turn the model back over.
