The Howling Wolf ~FoldedWilderness This artist's origami pieces are not only brilliantly executed, but their placement and the concepts surrounding the photography of them elevate them to a whole new level of art.

The Howling Wolf

“We listened for a voice crying in the wilderness. And we heard the jubilation of wolves!”
-Durwood L. Allen

I made this wolf by using the base from Ronald Koh's black Rhinoceros. I had heard of other folders doing similar transformations from this base and decided to try my hand at it too.

It is folded from from a single square of painted paper, involving no cuts and wet-finished.

Is there any chance that you'll post a tutorial to how you did this?

Lovely job! Where did you get the Black Rhinoceros base from?

  It's a free diagram from Ronald Koh, available there:…

You can go to about step 41 and start making changes from there but, looking forward to as late as step 57 can give some useful insights.

I've listened to the whole song and I liked it.  Blues is not my usual kind of music but, there is always something nice about it.
Thanks for the comment and the musical interlude.   :)

haha, i was only referring to the title, cool that you took the time... :D
to be honest, i don`t listen to blues nowadays - i used to in the 70s... but there are some fave blues artists who have remained, john lee hooker, t.bone walker, howlin`wolf to name a few... i only knew the wolf from listening and was very much impressed by his appearance, when i saw him for the first time on youtube a while ago... :D
you are welcome, and i like your paper works very much, took a glance in your gallery and was stunned about the photos with the real animals - cool stuff... :D

Nice! Could you do a tutorial? :D
FoldedWilderness's avatar
I might one day make a tutorial but, probably not soon though, as I have never even attempted anything of the sort yet.
EckoSlime's avatar
I know it sounds freaking exhausting, but with origami I've seen a few tutorials that show you step by step *fold by fold in this case xD* until it's completely done lol
