      Nice work, did you wet fold?

      Very nice, Himanshu. What paper is it?

      Thanks Shamarukh. I used handmade paper for this model and I think it is composed of banana bark + mulberry. The general thickness of the initial square was around 100gsm.

      i really don't like it much because of the step, how does the head come from the body and because of the weird possition of tusks....
      the look of the head is quite nice though... especially because of these ears - the pattern is absolutely excellent detail.
      the body is very realistic and nicely shaped. so... if the head was lower positioned(and maybe a little smaller), i would like it, because the grap between tusks and head would be hidden that way... anyway this way situated head is very unrealistic and the grap between tusks and head is unesthetic ;-)

      I agree with you about the tusks, but we must remember that this design is more than twenty years old. Overall, I think that John was way ahead in his folding techniques and realistic portrayal of animals even then.

      oh... anyway... if it is really so old, it is excellent... ;-)

      Great... You've actually managed to make this model look good. Great choice of paper as well. It fits the model perfectly...
