PLEASE CHECK OUT THE INSTRUCTABLE if you want step by step instructions. thank you.

This is me folding an origami dragon.

 Works for me. I suggest you make sure flash is working properly. I don't serve up the videos -- youtube does.

corndawg49 (author)jabapyth2010-03-31

you were right, its fine now ps im starting to make my own instructables

author
jabapyth (author)1333jm2010-01-08

I did answer, but I'm sorry if I wasn't clear. In my opinion, the comprehensive series of photos included in the instructable make a far better teaching tool for learning origami than a video would. This video was made first, and its purpose is to give you a general idea of how to fold the dragon. For better/more followable instructions, I would highly suggest looking at the instructable.

jabapyth (author)1333jm2010-01-13

 Thats fine, I'm not mad; It's just sometimes difficult to communicate w/ just text ;-)

I'm haveing a little truoble  with it do you think you can make another video just going at normal pace

jabapyth (author)1333jm2010-01-07

Have you tried using the step-by-step instructable?

author
pagangod (author)2009-01-01

cool, but this would be better if you put step by step instructions instead of a video. still cool

author
jabapyth (author)pagangod2009-01-02

Good idea. I'll see if I can do that soon.

author
Kaiven (author)2008-12-31

That is pretty good.

author
k.o (author)Kaiven2009-09-25

wat do you have to do to make a video or make an instructable

author
jabapyth (author)k.o2009-09-25

well I just used my digital camera to video myself, and uploaded it to instructables. Its a pretty simple process. To make an instructable I like taking an exhaustive amount of photos, as that's the best way *I* learn. I'm pretty sure there's an instructable on here called "How to Make an Instructable"

I've made something like this about a year ago for a Western Civilization class I was taking when we had to build a castle for Lords and serfs and such. It took so long and I completely forgot how to do it RIGHT after I made it.

short dude (author)2009-08-04

you should try making a step-by-step like most of the videos on youtube it would be alot of help. =)

author
jabapyth (author)JIF0072009-04-07

Sorry man. that was before I had a tripod, so it was awkward to set up >.<
