Mega Complex Origami Dragons

This is my collection of all my scaled origami dragons. I thought it was neat to see the size comparison between them all.

Left to right:
Zoanoid dragon, 24" square designed by me
Scaled Wyvern, 19" square designed by Chad Killeen
Ryu Zin 2.1 and 3.5, 19 and 38" squares designed by Satoshi Kamiya

I look at this and then I look at mine... You've been folding for years haven't you? If not, this is even more amazing! Wonderful work! I really like how you folded practically every individual scale... speaking of which, how long did it take you to make those?
origami-artist-galen's avatar
too long, haha! I have no idea really...perhaps 15 hours each on average.
Even the ryujin 3.5? 0-o

your Ryu is so tiny, how is that possible? (mine is huge compared to that) I have long admired your Zoanoid but have little clue how to fold it.

I came here after seeing your stuff on Flickr. You have immense talent, I don't think I've ever seen such detail before. I've been doing tessellations almost exclusively for the past several years, but I kind of want to get back into making 3D models, as it's something I was never all that great at. I wanted to ask about the techniques you use to shape and finish works like this. Do you wet fold? Use any tools?

Never had the patience for something that complex myself, crease patterns alone are hard to interpret. Most of my folding experiments have been pure trial and error.

They look like some sort of tissue or tracing paper.
