• There you can make little curve to inside. - Arturori
  • Yeah. I looked at all the folds of this by Satoshi and it seemed like he reverse folded the area then undid it to make that edge of the shell more angular. I just tried to round it out instead.

    Jose Herrara: I folded from the diagrams above, but made changes to the back of the shell and the head:)

    wow, Shuki! I am truly in admiration and in envy of your skills!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!and also, what's the difference between cp version and diagrams version?

    tksorigami: Thank you very much!
    It's not a huge difference, but the back of the shell isn't spiky in the diagrammed version and the head needs a lower jaw.

    Beautifully folded; one of the best I've seen so far. The neck area is particularly impressive. Many congratulations.
