ahahahaha yeah, it's laying on its tail. The photo is a top-down view, because I thought the lighting would be slightly more dramatic if I did that XD

Thanks :)

hahahaha making the actual modules is boring, but putting them together is fun :)
hint: teach lots of people how to make those modules and get each person to make 10 or 20. That way, even if you only teach 5 people, you'd already have 100 :)

your pieces look so "high", any idea how big the paper is that you fold into the triangles? :)

Very nice by the way, although the neck could maybe be a bit more in an S-shape, but that's just me.

Original paper size was A4, and I can make 32 modules from one standard piece of paper. I think it's the camera angle that makes it high.

Yeah, I thought the same about the neck too, but I couldn't be bothered to make more modules XD

Oh, so it is A4... And even split in 32... That should make them very small, not so big :D

It probably looks like that because of the white background and because your picture is sharp, there isn't really a way to tell how big the original thing is.

If it is made out of 32/A4, I guess it is glued then, or did it stay together?

Nah, it just stays together. I don't bother with glue. It was only about 20cm tall after I had finished.

Oh... Well if I make something big and will need to sue small pieces (I always use 1/16 of A4 for comfort) I'll first try without glue then.

Thanks again for the info :D

Cut them into 1/16 A4 and then do a lengthwise fold and cut again, so you have 32 pieces. Because the preliminary fold (folding in half lengthwise) doesn't do anything except to make sure the paper is to correct ratio.

Oh, so these are actually 1/16, but instead of them being "double" you cut them so you get 32 pieces out of one A4, but as big as the pieces that you get by using 1/16? So with other words, 1/16 but not as thick?
Never thought about cutting them like that. I thought that maybe having the double layer of the piece would make it stronger, which it probably does, but maybe it isn't as necessary as I though.

I think the double layer is for strength, but I found that it gets quite thick - for a model I was making with a friend, the paper was basically thin cardboard and it was nearly impossible to fold.

So yeah, they're 1/16 size, but cut into 32 pieces. I try to be economical in my use of paper.
