Origami Spaceman (Quentin Trollip) – Part 3


Hello! Today we will be folding an Origami Spaceman designed by Quentin Trollip. This model is quite simple to fold, and it
looks great when it’s completed. Now we’re going to turn the model over. And now we’re going to fold these edges in towards the center area of this shape here. There’s no exact reference point for
this because we’re creating the shape of the spaceman. So just keep in mind that this is the
face, this is a mouth down here, about here. The nose is about here, and then the eyes will be up here. So you sort of want to round the face out a bit. And we’ll do that later. But we’re just going to create a basic
shape for now. So we’re just going to fold this edge in. So just take this, and you don’t
really want to bring this point all the way to the middle crease, but just somewhere close to it. And the
crease should extend until it hits this corner up here. So we’re just going to pull it just like this, and then make sure that this
come somewhat close to the middle, but not hitting it. And then we’ll make a crease somewhere about there. And now we’re going to do the same thing on this side. So just make sure the crease starts at this corner up here. And then we’re just going to pull it in, and
try to align it with the other one, just to look sort of like the other one. And then it’ll have the best result for you. Just pull it in and make your crease. And it should look something like this. Now we’re going to turn the model over,
and then we’re going to fold this right flap outward. So we’re just going to take this flap, and we’re going to pull it out as far as it goes. And once it’s out along that crease that we already created, then we’re going to start to make our
next crease. For this next crease, it’s going to be somewhat similar to this crease down here. But we don’t want to align it with that crease there. We want to offset this crease from the middle there. So you don’t want it to hit that middle. And you sort of want this edge to come overlapping this flap here. So let’s do that by pulling this over. And you have to make sure that it’s not
going to snap back to that original crease. You sort of just want to offset it a bit. So you might want to just pull it over so that this tip reaches some part of
the edge over here. And then we’re just going to extend that crease down here. And notice that my crease does not start at the very center here, but it’s
offset a bit. And that’s good, that’s what we want. Now we’re going to create a squash fold
using this flap that we just folded over. And so we’re just going to stick our
finger inside of this flap, and then we’re going to bring the corner of this flap down to the center of the model or the top of the nose. So we’re just going to bring it to about there. And yours may not look exactly like mine since the last crease had no reference
point, but it should look somewhat similar. So once it reaches there, then you can make your creases, and it’ll look something like that. Now we’re going to fold up the tip of
flap that we just squash folded. And we don’t have an exact reference
point for this again, but we’re just creating a basic shape for the eye. So you just want to pull it up, and you want to make sure that there’s some room between the eye and this corner here. So you can bring
it up about anywhere, and I’ll just bring mine up
about here. And once we have this, then we’re just
going to shape the eye a bit more. So you’re going to want pull some the eye
behind it. So you just want to fold down tip of the
eye a bit, so it looks like that. And then we want a fold in each side of
the eye so that doesn’t look so blocky, and just like a square. So you just want to fold in some of the eye towards the center of the model. So it looks something like that. And then you can do the same thing on this one. So about something like this. Again, there’s no reference point for any
of these creases, and it’s all based on how we created
this first squash in the first place. So about there is where looks nice. And again yours may not look
like mine, but it should look somewhat
similar. Now we’re going to repeat some of the previous creases on the left side of the model. So first we’re going to pull this edge
outwards along one of the existing creases. And then we’re just going to flatten it out. And again, we’re going to create the first reached that didn’t use a reference
point. So this crease was the one that almost aligned with this crease here. The one that we already have, so it
almost looked like this. But we just wanted to pull it over a bit so that it looked more like this. So that’s what we’re going to do, and you can use this side as a guide. So
you may want to fold it up along that existing crease. And then you can just pull it outwards on the bottom. And make sure that the crease extends to this corner. And again, you can just look inside the
middle and try to align, and try to just use this as a reference
point and as a guide to see how far over you want this crease
to drift. Once you’ve figured out that, then you just make your crease. And then it should look like this. Now
we’re going to create another squash fold like we did on the other side. So we’re going to stick our finger inside
of this flap here. And then we’re going to take this tip, and we’re going to fold it down to the top of the nose. Now again, your model may not look like mine. That’s because the last crease did not
have a reference point. Now we’re going to pull up this tip here. Try to remember how far up you pulled the tip on the other side, and try to pull it up about that far. Now I think mine was about this far, so now I’m going to make a crease. And
when you’re done, it should look like this. And now we’re
going to create basic shape for the eye just like we did on the other side. So first, we’re just going to fold behind the
tip of the eye here. So just fold that back like we did on the
other side. Fold it back up and then we’re going to
fold both of these edges behind to give it a
more round shape. So again there’s no reference point for any of these creases, and you kind of just have to explore
possibilities and do it on your own. So once you’re done, it should look like this. Now my
eyes aren’t exactly the same, so I may have to fix them to look more
similar. And you can do that too. Now we’re going to complete the final shaping of the Spaceman. So I would
imagine that you’d like round this off a bit, so we’re going to start by folding these corners back. There’s no reference point for this, so we’re just going to fold them back to about wherever you’d like. And you’re going to want to round this edge here. So we can just fold that behind, and you’re going to want to round this edge too. So fold this one behind, and then this edge down here. Fold that behind. Now once you have the
basic shape, then you can start to shape it on your own. So you may want to round each edge out a little bit, just like I’m doing here. Once you’ve completed the final shaping of the model, then your Spaceman is complete! I hope you enjoyed this video tutorial
