how on earth do you come up with creating origami like this

my mind is blown.

Wow, I like this one too.
The scales are just pleated diagonally?

Did you try pulling each one out and flattening it like a preliminary base? I know it's a pain but if people can do it for Ryujin 3.5 there's no reason not to do it on zoanoid (except maybe that zoanoid's complexity is higher, even if it takes less time to fold)
я старался сделать его похожим на твой.

Amazing! I'm blown away by the fact this is created with one sheet of paper. Such complexity and detail, it's gorgeous! Your whole album is amazing!

I don't know if I commented on this yet because its been a while since I added this to favorites, but this deserves a comment at the bare minimum. What would you say is the most complex part of the design? I might consider folding this in the future when I have more time on my hands.

Thank you! The most difficult part on this is probably the head, the scales take forever, but once you know what's going on it's not too hard.

Incredible... Do you use any particular approaches to designing new models?

I feel like crying...
I have spend some good years folding, but never been able to create a new pattern. And now I feel like a child with pencils in front of Michelangelo.

This is amazing.
