Origami Ancient Dragon by KamiWasa Origami Ancient Dragon by KamiWasa
This is it! This is the most challenging model i've ever done. it was a great milestone for me. years ago, when i first caught a glimpse of this model, I told myself that i just had to fold this someday no matter what. It turns out that my little dream came true. ^_^

The only problems I had with it was making the eyes (which as you can see are not there) and maybe with the snout.

folded from 18" tissue foil. second attempt.

oh yeah...i gave it to my physics teacher. she was really cool.

Yeah its from a book called "The Works of Satoshi Kamiya". It's pretty expensive for an origami book but totally worth it.

'works of Satoshi kamaya'When I too saw a glimpse of the model I also had to fold in which i did ( its actually in my gallery). and 18"inch tissue foil? where do you get that sort of paper?

Yeah the book is amazing and a must have for any expert.

As for the paper, tissue paper can be bought at a craft store, and aluminum foil can be as big as 18", so put them together and you get 18" tissue foil =D
