Frog by Kessukoofah Frog by Kessukoofah
Model by Toshikazu Kawasaki. Found in "Origami Dream World - Flowers and Animals".

This is a delightful model. I am trying to find a cool way to fold a frog using box pleating out of a dollar bill (or canadian tire money...whatever), and this model seems to hold the key. At any rate, it's a gorgeious and simple model. Enjoy it!

I wholeheartedly agree! The simple forms are very beautiful in their own right when done well and should not be considered as lesser than the super complex ones. This is a fun model to learn; I wish you luck!

Cool! I'm glad to see you got it done! In terms of it being clean or not, that's just practice. As you do more folds you start to learn how to round out certain areas (like the nose) and which areas should be pinched (like the joining of the legs). Box folding is not easy, but you got it done. Congrats!

This one is doubletissue that I had made myself, though honestly I do not remember ever making it. Had to pull it out and check again and it has the pencil marks I used to square it off, so I must have.

It's really not that hard and I would encourage it if you're serious at all about the hobby. You can get some great colours and exactly the feel you want in the paper. It's basically just two sheets of tissue paper with watered down white glue applied to it with a paint brush (I mean, I used methylcellulose, but watered down white glue may work too). There's plenty of vids on youtube for it.
