My favorite origami masters have designed crane models, complete with legs and other details.
Robert J. Lang has a dancing crane; and Jun Maekawa a standing crane. John Montroll also folded a standing crane model using a six-sided square.
I designed the model above based on the traditional model but using a blintzed bird base.
Note that the tail in the model above is short, following the models of the artists I mentioned. Indeed, in reality, cranes’ tails are short. If we stick to the design of the traditional origami crane which has a long tail, the model will be like this:
And if you use a two-color origami paper, the model will have color change:
Here’s the instructions to fold this model. I hope you can follow. 🙂
