Cicada 1.1

2003-6-16

This cicada is quite similar in structure to the Lang/Robinson frog, as both eccentially have the same eyes. This model was folded from Michael LaFosse's Origamido paper .

Initially in the design of this model, I used the body of Satoshi's Ancient Dragon, but this created many problems: the toes and fingers are too small, the tail and neck were too long and there was an extra point extruding from the base of the tail that was unwanted and wasteful. I found that I could solve these problems by turning the orientation of the toes, creating a much cleaner model. The reference point on the bottom edge is found by folding point (0,1/8) to point (3/4,0) assuming the square is of length one on the coordinate plane.
