Well, I decided to share these after all, I already sent the diagrams to a few people to proofread, and what the heck, might as well share them with everyone if that's the case.

Just note that this is an extremely difficult model and you will need prior folding experience. Enjoy!

I am planing to have a go at this dragon.   I have already folded your Simple Dragon a few times and it is a top model too.
I've not done too many complex models, so I am not sure if I will succeed but, a model this good must be tried.

Thank you very much for sharing these diagrams, your work is awesome and appreciated.

Hi I like this model and I want to fold it, I already fold almost all Satoshi Kamiya´s models. Where I can download the steps of this model?. thanks

Hey, I tried getting the diagrams and it showed they were hidden. This is by far one of the best dragons I have and is my level. Please let me know cause this is one AWESOME model. Thanks!!!

Hey, thanks very much for your enthusiasm! Well, I had set the file to private, but after a bit of reconsideration it's back to public again. Good luck folding, it's a very tough model.

To origami-artist-galen,

you made the diagrams yourself, right?
This link to "mediafire"
that's legal, isn't it?
I hope you understand that I just want to go sure ;)

Yup, I designed and diagrammed the model and have made it perfectly legal for download C:

Wow, I haven't folded anything for a long time but your diagram looks really interesting. From what sort of paper you folded that? I'm afraid that I will start with too thick sheet and then arms and legs of dragon will be looking awful :/

The one in the photograph was folded from a 20" square of tracing paper. Good luck if you decide to try it out;)

The most difficult model I have folded is Robert Lang's tarantula, Is this still too complex for me?

the good thing about that tarantula is: learning to fold this model taught me to deal with folding thick parts without ripping the paper, unsinking complex structures and those very common zickzack-foldings. It's a good thing to start with :)
origami-artist-galen's avatar
It's more difficult than Lang's Tarantula for sure, but hey, try it out! ;)

I will when I get back from vacation. I read through the diagrams, and it looks pretty difficult. I Can try it with tissue foil. How many SUPER tricky steps are there?

I love this model and will soon begin work upon it

Wow, nice!
From a 1 being the traditional crane to 10 being Satoshi Kamiya's Ancient dragon how difficult is this one?
By the way, which program did you used to make this diagrams?
origami-artist-galen's avatar
Thank you. I'd give this model a 10 on your scale, it may have less steps, but it's every bit as difficult as the Ancient Dragon.

I used inkscape to draw these and all my diagrams and CPs.
twistedndistorted's avatar
No problem. Well, it looks I have a big challenge ahead, this goes right into my folding list (now I need to buy a huge paper :))

Is it like photoshop or more like Corel Draw?
