It's finally done!
Oh man, seriously, you would not believe how many times I have attempted this piece and failed. I was pretty close to giving up, too.
So yeah, the model you see here has been sitting on my desk, unfinished, for half a year, because I just couldn't make the folds for the hind claws. And it would seem that over that time, it has taken some considerable wear and tear.
Anyhoo, I really don't know what motivated me to finish it now, but here it is. It's still not quite the best, but this is, without a doubt, the most challenging piece of origami I've folded up until now by far.NOTE:
Yes, I know I didn't get a very good shot of it, but it was 1:00 in the morning and I was tired and was too anxious to wait until the next day to get a picture. I'll upload a better version later.
