SUMMARY- I really liked the more natural look of Mr. Fukui's work, so when I got to page through this one, I immediately went home and ordered the only other of his books available here in the USA, "Fantastic Origami Flying Creatures". When I got this home and read more indepth and worked at following the folding diagrams, it wasn't completely smooth sailing, but I did complete the dolphin model. It's not perfect, but part of the problem was I didn't have washi paper(recommended). It takes some work - and practice - and the right paper - but these more lifelike models are quite doable, and very very cool.
