Also, J0nB0n has an account on this site: Johnnycakes, and im sure you could ask him for help if you need. He helped me when i tried to fold his dollar ryuzin :wink:

Hi-my dragon is not too difficult to fold as long as you do things in the right order. The main creases can be found by folding angle bisectors from the corners. First collapse the angled pleats along the outside and then with the diamond of paper you have left make a sort of distorted bird base. After that you can rabbit-ear the long flaps for the rest of the creases.

And if you're patient you can get the diagrams in the Centerfold Convention Program.

i folded this dragon a few minutes ago but the spines look like crap. how did you get them so clean jon? folded it bird base thing then did unsink things to make the extra points and then sunk (without precreasing) the part thats supposed to be sunk but then they looked like crap. are you supposed to pre crease the sinks? i didn't because on your flickr it says they're fudged so i assumed it meant just kindof guess.
my flickr tissue foil is for noobs! mc FTW!!!!

First things first-- that ain't a bird base. Divide two opposite corners into 8ths and then in the central area, bisect the angles where they meet the diagonal to make a double-rabbit-ear type structure in the center.

This design uses some boxpleating-related concepts, you should do some simple boxpleating first so you understand what's going on in the middle area.
