=Figuer creates his own original origami designs and has an entire gallery filled with the most wonderful and realistic paper-animals. The photograph and scenery in Black cat - Gato negro really bring life and personality to this fantastic paper model! Fabulous work! ( Suggested by wolbashi and Featured by Myana )

I noticed several new favourites, so I guess that this is the reason.

Could you please send me the diagram for folding this beautiful cat? (:

I have had this picture in my favorites for a while, without realizing that you are the designer.

I think it is one of the very best origami cat there is and I am glad to be able to tell you, it's creator, just how nice your model is!

i saw the book papiroflexia coleccion and it is very bad explained and really confuse, i couldn't do this awesome cat, so post a CP if possible please
Figuer Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2012
I don't have a CP of this model. And I don't think it would help too much; because of the folding sequence that I use. Anyway, the diagrams, even if confuse, they are correct, and it is possible to fold the cat following them.

DriftingTaintedSoul Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2010
you designed it yourself? That is amazing! I love it! It makes mine look kind of lame T_T
but I still love making them ^_^
janeright Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2010
i`m from kyiv, ukraine and i have a livejournal community called "toys walk". it`s ukrainian, but when i publish something from foreigners i always translate it in english)
so i just search for people who like toys and might be interested in taking part)
the community is about toys on walk - the best way to show them is to prepare a photo-story with a small text or without it)
the picture must show how toys travel outside, tell about somekind of adventure etc.

if you are interested and you have some free time - just make some pictures and tell me about it=)

thank you so much for your attention!=)

I so love this! I know I faved it long time ago but in this weekend I was at a Japanese festival and at a workshop I learned some origami and there was a picture on a wall with an origami cat(and it reminded of your cat) and I asked if they can do that cat but unfortunately they didn`t knew how to make it...can u please learn me to fold this cat? I so so love it!
Figuer Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2009
Send me a note with your email and I will send you the diagrams of the cat.
Unfortunately, it is a complicated model. It can be folded in only 20 or 25 minutes; but the folding sequence is unusual and it has some difficult steps. And you need some practice because in the end of the model there are some random steps.

Los diagramas del modelo están publicados en un par de libros y en varias revistas de origami.

Si, los gatos no son muy comunes en origami. El de Anibal Voyer es una version excelente, pero me gusta mas el tuyo!

Muy bien hecho. Creo que comprare el libro.
Figuer Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2009
Aníbal inventó su gato poco después de que yo inventara el mío. En aquella é;poca yo estaba por Madrid y visité a Aníbal varias veces. Él me enseñó en su casa a plegar una primera versión de su gato. Le dije que estaba bien; pero que no me gustaba la cabeza. Entonces plegué la cabeza de su gato imitando la cabeza del mío. A él le gustó, y esa se convirtió en la versión final.
Gracias por el comentario, Arianna. Ese libro tiene media docena de animalitos inventados por mí. Los modelos del libro, en general, están bien; pero los diagramas no son fáciles de seguir.
magicalmilk Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2009
WOW son socios! El estilo de Voyer se me hace un poco extraño, pero tiene unos modelos que me fascinan. Usando los diagramas de su Tigre Alado, doble un grifo sencillo.

El libro no lo puedo encontrar solo buscandolo por Google, no me puede decir en que parte lo puedo comprar?
Figuer Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2009
No somos socios; pero en aquella é;poca éramos amigos papiroflécticos. Luego dejé de plegar por unos años y cuando retomé mi afición resulta que era él quien había dejado de plegar.
Aún no he plegado su tigre alado.
En cuanto al libro, no sé. El autor del libro me envió un ejemplar gratis. Incluye unos pocos de mis modelos, no recuerdo si 4 ó 6; pero hay libros muchos mejores que ese =P
yannay Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2009
I saw Kei's cat and fell in love instantly. It's awesome for you to invent origami cat. They are very popular animals.
Figuer Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2009
Yup, very popular animals, but very difficult to design in origami.
There are hundreds of different origami dogs but only some cats.
:blushes: When I invented my cat it was among the best origami cats in the world :blushes: Actually there are some other very good cats that are a lot better than mine.
