Contest goal:

Origami is the traditional japanese art of paper folding. The goal of this art is to create a representation of an object using geometric folds and crease patterns preferably without gluing or cutting the paper, and using only one piece of paper.
In this contest, your goal is to use photoshop to create realistic-looking origami out of other images.
You can't use photos of handmade origamis and use it for your entry, your origami piece has to be entirely created in your favorite graphical program, built with non-origami images.
Good luck!

Entry from old PST site.

I folded this bird out of paper and then unwraped and marked out where the different parts were.
I then used a background image (see source) and manipulated to create the bird (see SBS). (5 years and 1973 days ago)
