Great!:D
I'll try to make them as soon as I can. Sort of hard with schoolwork and the like, keeping me busy. I'll try though. It may take some time. :wink:

Hi! It's been a long while since I've been active on here. I deleted my Dropbox years ago, so some things, like my Dragonfly Varileg guide, are lost to time. I may still have other things, though! Email me if you have any questions.

I finally got around to collapse the base of this model :D . I did cut off the 4 triangular corner as not use in the final model and in a tentative to reduce the thickness of the legs.
I took the time to create this diaporama which I hope this will be useful to some of you. I would advise to create most of the pleats in the correct direction making it a lot easier when collapsing.

Now time to do the shaping ... :roll: I know what flaps are the legs but that's pretty much all...

Edit: shaping done... I just realize that Lang create two tiny eyes. I need to work on getting those.

@Ragnorax
Thanks. I just recently figured out how to use my Canon EOS. I just wish I could resize the picture in photobucket (I don't want to put these on my flickr as yet)

Anyway, I did what i could with the shaping and it turned out a lot better than I expected. The flaps were very thick at first but I used my thumbs power and my MC friend and voila. I still need to add these eyes flaps though ...

Very nice, i managed to figure this guy out in the end, and is one of my favorite models. You did a very good job, and thanks for the photos.
Please check out my flickr.

Those photobucket pictures have been removed.Though I did a Google image search and the images by one folder appeared.I had to screenshot and edit .Here they are placed in a folder.I have to rethink my whole strategy.
My collapse hasn't got the abdomen folds.
