I made an easy sticker variation of Megaminx.
This is same idea of Ultimate cube, but the image is a little different by 12 colors stickers and pentagonal shapes.

I agree with Georges. Hidetoshi-san made another masterpiece.
The idea of using two colors for each corner and giving it a sparkling triangle effect is brilliant!

Strangely it took that long from the UltimateCube to the Ultimate Megaminx.
Nobody thought about it or at least nobody realised it. Well done!

I use STIKA to cut radial.
I measured the Megaminx's part's sizes, and make base
template of STIKA.
And I check the center position, and make radial cut lines.

And last, stick, stick, stick, all of stickers by handiwork. X-)

I selected opposite colors following pairs.

White-Gray, Blue-Light blue, Green-Yellowgreen,
Orange-Purple, Red-Pink, and Yellow-Brown.
