Picture of 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.

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.
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.
i agree!

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!
I think he explained how to do a sink fold nicely actually. There is only so much one can show and tell. Most of the time you just have to see how it should look and work with it until it's how it should be.

hey guys, if u like this model u might also like this one

I can not for the life of me figure out how you got picture 4 in step three....

Which part? You turn the model sideways, pull the side flap up, out, and squash it once it reaches a right angle. I hope that helped; if not, check out the video that accompanies this.
great model. u got anything more complex u could share?

 yeah...the question is whether I have the time to put it up here =)
I'll see what I can do.

i got bored so i went and made a foot tall one of these. the paper before folding was about 3' by 3'. my first (bright red) one came out horrible so i gave it to one of my friends but my second one (navy blue) was one of the best peices of oragami i've ever done. i got a little crazy with the folds in the neck though.

YOU FORGOT TO SAY "Fold the tail as well as the head" ON THE LAST ONE! jk, i'm just so excited to find a really cool origami dragon that I can make by heart. THANKS A LOT! xD
jabapyth (author)  Lil Sushi5 years ago
You're very welcome =) This is one of my favorite models.
 you ROCK. I made the dragon and i love the way it looks

 i can make a dragon without wings so this one is a pretty big change which makes it a lot harder for me to make
i dont understand the 6th instruction of step 3

aakarsh19975 years ago
 I didn't understood how you did the step. please make it clear

jabapyth (author)  aakarsh19975 years ago
Thanks for your feedback! Could you specify what about the step you didn't understand? Perhaps the picture number that you found confusing?
