EDIT (05/June/2010): PREVIEW FIXED. Sorry for the missing step 6 of the color-changed was in the pdf, but it somehow got lost when I put the long image together.


The preview image should enlarge...I think. If you want to print these, DOWNLOAD the file and you'll get a multi-page pdf file instead.

These were created for the monthly design challenge here: June 2010 Challenge. The theme is dinosaurs. This is probably the only design I've produced recently that really seems to work with just about any paper - just as long as you put the creases in hard.

Step 14 can be a bit of a pain in the bum if you're not used to folds like that. Fiddle around with it a bit and the paper should eventually go the right way. It's mostly along existing creases but requires one new crease that the paper sometimes wants to slip away from.

Usage Policy
To me this design is not very complicated, so I would expect that other people have happened across similar patterns. However, I did develop this myself and therefore hope that my choice of details is at least somewhat unique. If you follow my tutorial and wish to post the result as artwork either here or elsewhere, please credit the design you used to create the model.

I've discoverd your diagram, and have made one parasaurolophus. But, As my previous origami (I've also tried the rat from Eric Joisel) it try to show its stomac - always opening that fold made in step 1. I wonder why ? How could you try to block it ?

I'm sorry for my foreigner's english

Very nice!
I haven't been to the forum for ages now. Glad to hear those monthly challenges are still going strong.

I was absent there for quite a few months too. There were a few topics in a row a while back that I wasn't too interested in (although still with some amazing submissions each month) and I had lost track of it. Heading back there this month to update myself was good timing!
