507: Koh’s Veiltail Goldfish

Posted by wonko on September 29, 2015 in fish |

Continuing on the “something fishy” theme, I thought i would have a go at the Veiltail:507Veiltail

This goldfish mutant is nuts – bred for the profundity of tail, the body is stunted and a small muscular tail necessary to drove the massive drapery of tail fins.507VeiltailPaperSize

This is an interesting fold, eyes similar to the Ryukin and some similar tuck, pleat/squash maneuvers to gain a multitude of layers and stickey-outey parts in very particular places.507VeiltailDev

The fold was fun because I found it difficult to guess what would be come what. The body shaping is very dense, I suspect this will be a torturous little fish to fold small because of the subtly rounding to make the body appear plump and aquiline.507VeiltailScale

Lots still to try, will interleave folding and real life (as it should be).

Efficiency of sheet usage here is interesting, so much of the paper is devoted to fins that the body ends up smaller, but looking to similarly scaled models it still looks quite natural.
