The base model of the Geistkämpfer is already a piece of art by itself even before the shaping. But it does not seems to be alive. Shaping really does wonder to the origami model. It breathes life into the model.
There are already many folded models of Geistkampfer can be found in the web. Therefore you can take reference on how to shape them tastefully. I particularly like the detail for the hand holding the bow, where the thumb and 4 fingers can be clearly shaped out.
I did something different for the ‘pull over’ on the right shoulder. I opened up the pleat and formed a broad sleeves over the right arm with arrow.
Shaping the Geistkämpfer figure is really no easy task. I have tried a few possible pose but the arms just do not stay in shape. Finally, I have to reinforce the structure with metal wire in order to keep the model in shape for the photo shoot.
