Origami Dragon by BopBob Origami Dragon by BopBob
Thank you for all the positive comments on my previous deviation! Glad some of you like it =D

I had a good time making that swan, so I decided to take another shot. Asked :iconcalc: to get me one from HK seeing that she was there at the time. "Most impressive one" I said. Hence, the dragon.

I completed this in a very surprising time - 5 days. Whereas the swan took me a decent 2 weeks to fold all the bits and build. But this time, my parents were so bored they ended up folding at least a third of all the triangles required! Credits to them too =p

Won't be making any more new ones for a while. Uni starts again coming Monday. You'll have to wait till July, if not the end of the year! ^^"

wow! cool! very well done -)
amazing work, both the swan and dragon!

i'm an origami artist a little myself, although i'm nowhere near as good as this!
I was wondering if you could make a tutorial of how you fold the triangles?
i would actually like it if you didn't show how to assemble it if you did do a tutorial, although i'd understand if you didn't want to or didn't have the time.

Thank you, for just posting these pictures, they're inspiring!
LOOOVVVEE ITTTT! Great job! I would very much like to make this dragon for my friend as a X'mas gift. Can you please share the diagram for your dragon-- Thank you so much.

:worship: I just have to try this... did you use any glue to attach the legs and the head? :-? this is just priceless
If you have diagrams back could you please mail them to
kind regards
Hi pretty awsome folding is there a diagram to built the peaces and a building plan to put them together? (I normally only fold origami from 1 sheet of paper but I want to try this one ^.^)
Yea there is a diagram, but unfortunately I've lent it out to a friend =[ The folding itself is very easy, just a matter of patience. Like I said, there's about 700 pieces to make that whole dragon.
