Satoshi's Kirin by BopBob Satoshi's Kirin by BopBob
Satoshi Kamiya's Kirin. Once again, it lacks the details. I think I'm not using the right paper. It's close to impossible for me to get my hands on proper origami paper... seeing I live all the way in Australia. But it's ok! The animal has 4 legs, just like the Kirin in the book! That's good enough for me =p

You did a pretty good job on this, for regular paper =)

For complicated models, I like to use 'tissue foil' - I just get tissue paper from anywhere, even Safeway- and glue it on the back of some regular kitchen foil. It keeps its shape really well, and it's really compressible, so it works well for models with lots of layers =D

You can find quite a variety of origami paper in this Australian online store too: [link]

It's great to see another Australian folder around dA! =D :highfive:

Oh wow thank you! Just the kind of site I have been looking for! Unfortunately they don't seem to sell anything bigger than 30cm sheets =[ I wanna get my hands on 1m sheets to try Satoshi's dragons!

No problems, glad to be of help!

But yup, getting hold of large sheets of paper can be hard... =/ Still, you could try gluing multiple sheets of foil together to make a MASSIVE sheet of tissue foil that you could try folding some of those dragons with! =)

If you can't find origami paper, I suggest using large, regular paper. Origami paper is thin, so to compensate for using regular paper, it has to be a larger sheet. That's what I sometimes use. Hope it helps.
