First post, Richard Alexander's Koi as presented in "Advanced Origami"
Medium: Aluminum Foil (Shinny side)
AHHH! It is done! And now, I may rest.
I made this Koi four times as I was not satisfied with the results (paper, wet folded paper, wet folded construction paper...). Finally, I made it out of aluminum foil and VOILA!
Three hours later, 274 photos and countless retouching later, the very final shot proved to be the best.
I am very happy with this picture, everything came together soo well. The Koi adjusted and folded juuust right, lighting, shadows, angles. I love it. It's my new favorite picture.
