I'm a member of the origami forum at http://snkhan.co.uk/forum/index.php, and they pose a design challenge every month. This month (August 2009) the challenge was to submit a new design that (1) only needs up to 30 folds to be completed and (2) is inspired by a super complex model. I've never designed before, but the challenge did tempt me.
The result is my first own creation. It's an eagle that was inspired by Hung Cuong Nguyen's eagle (2008). I finished diagramming the model just now, and have made it available in the diagrams section.
Please do let me know if you find errors or if you have trouble with some of the steps.
Also, the month is not over yet, so why not give designing a try yourself?
Happy folding, and happy designing,
