I wanted to design another Lord of the Rings creature, and got really excited when I thought of an Ent. The complexity of layers between flaps and rivers was too tempting to pass up, and the fact that I did not need to try to stick to a specific set of proportions was liberating - don't like that gusset molecule? Just make these leaves and/or branches bigger or smaller. Is there a large empty space needing to be filled? Just add leaves and/or branches where desired. This was a fun CP to create as well as fold.
