Picture of Make A Cardboard Dragon!
I used cardboard to make this art piece. Look at the pictures and view the image notes to see how it was constructed.

Step 1: First, Sketch The Beast!

Picture of First, Sketch The Beast!
I made a rough drawing of what I wanted my dragon to look like. From here, a trial piece was made, mainly with construction paper.

Wow... your art-sense is good.

But I have a question, how did you cut the cardboard very detail? I mean, maybe you have some special techniques or tips about how to cut the cardboard more detail and tidy.

It's a beautiful piece. The workmanship and photography are admirable. I would like to duplicate your piece. However it seems to me that you made only one and took pictures of it after you completed it. I would like to see a true step-by-step with templates so that I or another person can duplicate it. Are you game? I curious, how did you make the large and small scale patterns?

It's impressive, but couldn't you have made some sort of templates for others to follow? Or same-magnifaction photos of the pieces?
