Yellow Bird (Satoshi Kamiya)

Kamiya, Satoshi
Adams, Sara
Difficulty Level: 
High intermediate
Model type: 
Paper ratio: 

You might be tempted to call this model "chocobo", for obvious reasons.


I cant get the legs to look so good, but then again, the paper is not the best. Do you think that it is a high intermediate model?

What kind of paper would you best recommend for complex origamis like Satoshi Kamiya's ?
I attempted the yellow bird several times. The legs always tend to get too separated, and the birds can barely stand still.

I liked your site a lot and feel like visiting it frequently.

Thanks for the attention.

Outstanding chocobo I see many people can't make the legs of the chocobo in a way to stand tall, well you seem to have made it!
Thanks for those videos you've made (pretty difficult, but I never stop trying!)
Final Fantasy IS my favourite game series and also my favourite hobby is origami (and drawing, useless informartion :P), thus it isn't a surprise that the "chocobo yellow bird" or whatever really fascinates me.
Plz, please, pretty please make a video on an origami chocobo, I hope Satoshi gives you permission, 'cause your videos are great and the chocobo is great so (right there I stop talking to take a breath - oof!)... (can't think of anything else right now)
Have a happy folding!

to create a chocobo out of a relatively larger paper. it'll increase your chances to fold the crimps at the toes. :)

You could show me how can I do the steps 48-51 please

Does anyone have the diagrams to this astonishing piece of work?
I cant get hold of Satoshi Kamiya's book, but I am desperate to fold it!
Can anyone help me??

You can buy the book online, I've listed two different resources in the internet that sell it. Simply check the links above the image labelled with "Diagrams".

Sara why do you thimk it is a high inermediate project it looks quite simple and what paper did you use for this?

I folded it from a 15cm square of kami. I haven't looked at the model for a while, but I guess there are a couple of trickier steps in the folding sequence. Might be intermediate, but definitely not simple.
