You have better chances of getting help if you mention what the finished model is and a link to a picture of how it looks like

Why don't you give it a good try yourself first and let us know if you get stuck? After all, the worst mistake you can do is to be afraid to make a mistake.

Okay so you said you got stuck in the middle. Lets look at the crease pattern again and try to understand every part of the crease pattern. (i.e. know which part of the dragon is folded from which part of the paper)

For this part, if you just started crease patterns, you should use a drawing program (like Paint) or sketch it on a piece of paper.

Image

I've color-coded each flap that'll be folded out from this crease pattern. (Red is the Head, Orange is Front Legs, Yellow is Wings, Green is Body, Light Blue is Back Legs, Dark Blue is flap next to tail, Purple is Tail, White is ???)

I'm guessing you have trouble folding around the white region since it's a flap that doesn't really show in the final model. (I haven't folded the actual model but it might be the paper under the neck.) I would suggest to fold the white region first, have it point upwards, then fold the rest of the flaps pointing downwards.

-----------------------------------------------
P.S. If you don't know how I color-coded the crease pattern, I would suggest you search/read about 'circle-packing', 'box-pleating', etc. I would recommend reading 'Origami Design Secrets' by Robert Lang if you have access to it

PLEASE fold the base and show me. I'm sick and tired of trying to figure it out. If you know some easy box pleating models please let me know.

After folding some box pleated models these past few days, I noticed I like to fold from the edges. So I apologize for telling you to fold from the center :(

Next thing. Try not to feel discouraged for not being able to figure out the crease pattern yourself. As some people say, "Practice Makes Perfect", and you have to start somewhere. So I've made photo diagram showing how to fold the crease pattern. I hope this helps :D

=========================================
And to be able to fold the crease pattern easier, I've altered the cp a little:
ImageToothless by Cahoonas (revised) by ShuaiJanaiDesu, on Flickr

This will allow you to fold the middle flap right underneath the head flap. (It won't change the overall shape of the model.)

I'm terribly sorry for the offtop, could you somehow reupload these diagrams?
