Cheetah Head

Title: Cheetah Head
Paper: 33 x 103 cm uncut sheet of sketch paper
Created: January 2017

I originally wanted to do a full cheetah in box-pleating, but was never satisfied with the lack of details of the head. I then decided to experiment on the head alone, and it proved more of a challenge than expected!

The model was fully based on box-pleating. The fangs and ears still are, but the eyes are now inspired by the amazingly expressive way Daniel Chang makes the eyes of his masks.

I wanted the model to be viewable from any angle, so a liberal amount of glue has been used to close it up, instead of hiding the locks and leaving a dead view angle.
