But anyways, check out these incredibly awesome origami dragons and then go check out some of the other origami models some of these people have folded because they’re equally as awesome.

13) Chinese Dragon
Finally we have an origami dragon folded by me. It’s no where near as impressive as the rest of the dragons here but it’s one of my favourite models to fold and it’s not too hard. This dragon is designed by Kunihiko Kasahara and you can find diagrams in the book Origami Omnibus.
So hopefully you were as impressed by these origami dragons as I was. Be sure to check out all the artists mentioned here because they have a ton of other awesome origami.
