Now, I thought I was pretty good at origami. After all, I can pretty much fold a paper crane in my sleep. But then I started running across models like this:
...and I realized that I can barely fold squat.
Or can I?
I found a pretty nice tutorial on YouTube for folding an origami dragon (you can watch it here) and I decided to give it a try!
Here is my third attempt:
I may not be an expert like Kade Chan who invented this model (how you can think up complex patterns like this one is way beyond me!) but I think it turned out pretty good.
For an extra dramatic effect, I mounted the dragon model on a piece of wood and added a flickering flame-like lightbulb.
