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

This is me folding an origami dragon.

I've also made an instructable detailing the folding process.

 i cant properly access the video, the screenis just white.

jabapyth (author)corndawg492010-03-02

 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

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.

 i have. the part where you push the square in is very difficult for me

corndawg49 (author)jabapyth2010-03-02

1333jm (author)jabapyth2010-01-13

sorry if i made you mad i just wanted to make a few.i kind of feal bad now.

jabapyth (author)1333jm2010-01-13

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

1333jm (author)2010-01-07

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?

pagangod (author)2009-01-01

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

jabapyth (author)pagangod2009-01-02

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

jabapyth (author)jabapyth2009-01-03

sorry for asking so many questions but how do you make the step by step instructable

Kaiven (author)2008-12-31

That is pretty good.

k.o (author)Kaiven2009-09-25

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

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"

k.o (author)jabapyth2009-09-25

thank you!!!!!!!!

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

jabapyth (author)k.o2009-09-25

adio (author)jabapyth2009-09-05

SicilianMafia (author)2009-01-01

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.

jabapyth (author)SicilianMafia2009-01-02

Yeah, that looks like the same design with a few minor modifications.

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. =)

JIF007 (author)2009-04-06

Jabapyth U should have dome the video at a different angle because i couldn't see what to do!!!

jabapyth (author)JIF0072009-04-07

Sorry man. that was before I had a tripod, so it was awkward to set up >.<
For better instructions, go to the full instructable -- this video is really only meant as an assistant.

Sharkfan123 says: awesome dragon dude. I looked at the video and thought it was challenging. I like a good challenge.

soldier_fever (author)2009-03-01
