Kind of interesting. Nothing ground breaking here, but pretty cool still the same.
It's no doubt, been done before. It was new to me, though.
I was thinking about spread squashing the flaps open for a different look. That was the initial plan. Still, I like how it turned out before that.
I used hexes on the back in between the touching 'petals' to connect them flatly.
The photos that follow are front squashed unlit, rear lit and spread squashed lit.
