Thanks sable7 :)

I've always wanted to fold a sea turtle after seeing this amazing turtle by Kei Watanabe. Suprisingly, adding the scales on was one of the easier parts - I just had to make sure to leave enough paper at the top create transitions from pleats ryujin-style. The hard part was transitioning from the shell (which was the first part I designed) to the rest of the model. There are still some things I'd like to improve, like trying to lengthen the neck, but overall I'm very happy with this model.

That’s insane! It’s reminiscent of the loggerhead sea turtle by kamiya, which is quite an impressive model in itself. Great job with the scales! That’s a great model :)
I’m a young folder from the U.S. I love folding complex models and I’m beginning to design my own.

Thanks :), it is definitely partly inspired by that model.
