Dragon skeleton

Dragon skeleton, designed and folded by me

One uncut square of Gerard paper ( 39x39 cm ), super thin ( literally the thinnest paper I’ve ever worked with )

64x64 grid Boxpleat, asymmetric.

Total folding time: over 24 hours.

This model was super complex to fold. First of all the design itself is tricky- it is asymmetrical and has tons of middle flaps ( more than 40 middle flaps !! )

After precreasing i pre-collapsed each part individually, to make the final collapse easier. Even after collapsing I wasn’t sure if I could finish the model, because it is really small and kind of thick. I’m really really happy that everything worked out the way I wanted ( except the neck :/ )

I used some wire and a surprisingly small amount of glue for shaping.
