In September 2007 I challenged myself to fold a scaled koi within the next year. Well, it did not happen. But this weekend I met the challenge. I started on Friday afternoon, and finished today - Sunday afternoon. Rest assured, I took many long breaks, and indeed didn't work much on the fish at all on Saturday. Here's the result.
I recorded the whole folding process, and might make a 30-second or so time lapse out of it. I'm not sure yet, it's so much material!
In any case, I'm proud I managed to complete the fish. It's not perfect, but hey - I'm not Robert Lang. :)
