Hermit Crab by Dreams-Made-Flesh Hermit Crab by Dreams-Made-Flesh
Designed by Satoshi Kamiya, folded by me from a hand tinted, 18 inch piece of Sekishu paper. First fold through, and I'm fairly pleased with the result.

Thanks! I folded it over the course of two days, and took another two days to shape and wet-finish it. Maybe three or four hours of folding, and then six hours shaping, including drying time?

that is... wow... oh god, so much time... definitly my thing isnt the wet folding, its weird now that i think about it, i spend a lot of hours making modules to make just one kusudama or modular, still your work looks much awesome than mine... really loved the colors man... looks realistic... you dont sell your masterpieces?

It's all about what you want to invest that time doing. Modulars are fun too, and I went through a phase a while back where I was making a ton of them. I generally just keep my work for my display or give it away to friends. There is some vagueness with copyright law and origami models, so I generally don't sell the work, so as to avoid conflict with the creators.
