Introduction: How to Fold an Origami Dragon

I uploaded a video a few days go, on how to make an origami dragon, and here are the requested instructions.

Step 1: Fold the Base

If you already know how to fold the bird base, go ahead and do that, and you can skip this step.
Otherwise; for future origami reference, this that we're folding is called the bird base, and is used as the base for many origami animals.

Step 2: The Body

If you ever get confused during these steps, you can refer to my video.

Step 3: Head and Tail 1

If you ever get confused during these steps, you can refer to my video.

Step 4: The Wings & Legs

If you ever get confused during these steps, you can refer to my video.

Step 5: Head and Tail 2

If you ever get confused during these steps, you can refer to my video.

Apologies for the bad focus on some of these.....yeah

Step 6: RAWWR!!!

Now go out and ravage some villages

Step 7: The Video

Heres a full video of the process

I like your origami model. Most of the easy dragons on youtube that are like this have itty bitty little wings, which I hated. So, I had to stick with big wings and no feet. But, I like how your origami model has big-ish wings, but still has feet. Thanks!

Hey that's the best dragon Ive found so far! but do u need more than one piece of paper? the second to last frame on step four says you do the same thing for the other side, and i cant figure it out!

You only need one piece of paper. The other side is exactly what it means. You flip it over, so that its on the other side, and do the same thing.

dang from this point on it gets hard. I have the most expieriance with origami in my family and i still think this is a harder model to fold.

I started making this when I was 10... first origami thing I ever did other than ninja stars and paper airplanes.

this is easy and im only a teen ager
well almost im 12 and this is easy

LOL, Grinder your a teenager when you turn 13, and, same, im 12 and this was EASY.

i posted that a while ago wen i first tried it. im much better at origami now and it is much easier for me now.

hey is there a easy way to make a dragon???????????? please help
