Flying Mantis test fold by tskorigami Flying Mantis test fold by tskorigami
So this is what the secret CP was ;P I'll upload it to flickr once someone correctly guesses what it is ;P
I can do with better shaping, especially for the legs, the head and thorax area too. The paper was kinda small and thick, so I couldn't fold it properly. It even tore in both the hindwings. And I don't even have better paper. I guess this one is fine for now :iconmckaylaisntimpressed:
I'll begin making the final fold tomorrow =)

thank you =D
it really needs better shaping, but I'll do it, in time =) the CP is a bit of a trouble to collapse with all those segments but mustn't be too hard though =D

I think a small improvement never hurts, but it really isn't in any need of a substantial overhaul or something =D just touch up the forelegs a bit and you're done =)

Nice!

Those rivers in the wing structure threw me there, but I like how efficient the packing is.

wow, thank you :aww: :hug:
what rivers do you mean? both the wings are formed from one single flap =D and yeah, it was done to keep the packing efficient =D

No problem!
That's what I mean--having the wings and elytra branch from a single flap.
But if it works, why not? lol

oh. well, there wasn't enough space to accommodate both the flaps, so i used the suggestion jesse barr (JesseBorigmi on flickr) gave me earlier. It turned out to be successful =D
