Models from Tanteidan Convention

Last weekend, after finish folding the Bahamut, I started to fold some models from the Origami Tanteidan Convention books (OTC) published by Japan Origami Academic Society. All models are folded from one piece of square paper size 120x120mm.

Twin Pandas by Katsuhisa Yamada in Origami Tanteidan Convention 2
I modified the panda's eyes, so that the black area is be smaller and looks better. Anyway, the model looks like in a "compromising" position =)
Wizard by Hojyo Takashi in Origami Tanteidan Convention 2
As the diagram didn't state which paper side should start, the model ended up  opposite of what I want. Anyway, it doesn't look that bad. I did the color change on the beard.
Goldfish type square by Seishi Kasumi in Origami Tanteidan Convention 14
Bear 2 by Jared Needle in Origami Tanteidan Convention 14
I like the detail face of the bear, with nose, eyes and lower jaw.

White Flower

This flower is diagrammed in Origami Tanteidan Convention 14. It was designed by Manabu Ichikawa and supposed to form a bag with this unit. However, I modified the connection flap to become leaves =) It has a continuous of13 open sinks to form the flower in the middle.

Another Bahamut (Divine Dragon)

I tried making another Bahamut from tracing paper(500x500mm) as the 2 models previously didn't turn out properly. My second try photo was posted in July 14. Finally, this one looks much better. It took me about 7-8 hours within 2 days to complete folding it. The body can be folded correctly as the paper is thin. The head also has more details now with the lower jaw.
