also, my friend who has more artistic talent than i, is wondering if there is a model number for this masterpiece, or if this is your own design, etc =D

Hey!

You did really an awesome job with this ;D

Could I may ask you, to tell me how you began with the dragon? I want to make it myself if you allow :> -asks politely-

Hello! Thanks! I actually did a little interview on how I made another dragon where I try to explain how I make them (they all use the same techniques) so you could check that out if you like, and if you have any specific questions just ask:D [link]

:iconkiller-jelly:
kIlLeR-JeLlY Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2011
woaah thank you ;D

I've read the interview, but I still have some questions:

1. Could you try to tell me how you made the dragon scales ? (I hope thats the right word for it xD' )

2. Please let me know how you made the wings :>

and 3. Could you maybe send me the sketch of your grey dragon? Because I am terrible at drawing dragons ~__~


I hope its not to much to ask and you don't think I'm stupid xDD it's the first time I'm trying to make a real-looking papercraft-thing :>'

Thank you :> :>

sorry for the late reply, been super busy! Scales are made by folding a piece of paper in half and cutting out the scale shape along the ridge,kinda hard to explain, so that the scales are symmetrical. Wings are whole sheets of paper cut to shape then for the ridges, I just glued on extra strips of card. And Pretty sure I through out the sketch I did cos it was pretty crappy=P

Dont worry I'm busy too ;D

So I wanted to ask you if you could help me doing the head... I tried so much today but it dont want D;
I dont know how you've begun(?) with it...

And is it okay if I ask you for advice every time? xD' Its okay if you answer a few days later, or a week...it doesnt matter to me, I just want to finish the dragon xDD''

I hope my English was not to crappy and you could understand everything ~__~

Thanks for your trouble :>

The head is like an intricate scale. I fold the card in half and cut out the side profile of a dragon head so that when i open it up, it is symmetrical and I have both sides of the head. From there you just fold and bend the paper to give it volume.
