Extreme Origami.

Extreme Origami. From the website:

In the dojo of the origami purist, there are only two rules: The folder may use just one sheet of square paper, and the paper cannot be cut or torn in any way. Following these rules to make a figure like a peace crane, with four basic features—a head, a tail, and two wings—is relatively easy, and origamists traditionally proceeded by trial and error, unfolding and refolding a piece of paper until it started to resemble, say, a swan. For hundreds of years, origami's most complex patterns topped out at 20 steps.

These days patterns requiring more than 100 steps are common. Some of that competitive acceleration is due to Lang, who transformed the art by writing a computer program that can generate the blueprint for ultracomplex origami sculptures. Even with digital assistance, figuring out the sequence of folds that will create a beetle and all its ornaments is a mathematical problem of staggering complexity. Still, the reigning champion of intricate origami is a 23-year-old Japanese savant named Satoshi Kamiya. Unaided by software, he recently produced what is considered the pinnacle of the field, an eight-inch-tall Eastern dragon with eyes, teeth, a curly tongue, sinuous whiskers, a barbed tail, and a thousand overlapping scales. The folding alone took 40 hours, spread out over several months.

I'd love to see the instructions for this as well, though they're probably as thick as an encyclopedia.

It's obviously not made from a single piece of paper, it must require many, and then the pieces hook together. But probably each individual piece starts square and then is folded without cutting.

Can U please send me those instructions I love origami soooo much and I have always been wanting to know how to make one of those kind of dragons.

People how can you be so stupid? This fucking dragon isn't for real. It is not only humanly impossible as well as matematicaly impossible. I love origamis i have done some quite complicated such as aliens, and even dragons, but this one is bullshit.

i laugh at the ignorance of Pedro and the people that think this is fake.

This origami is real. Go look up origami works by Satoshi Kamiya. He made Bahamut (the divine dragon), Red dragon and a Phoenix. There is even video youtube evidence.

This is very beautiful. In fact, I got hooked up for origami when I saw this Eastern Dragon or Ryujin for the first time 8)
This is Ryujin 3.5. You can actually find a crease patten for Ryujin 2.1 at Satoshi Kamiya's website.

does anyone even read the article? It's made by Satoshi Kamiya... not the person who posted this. The person who posted this can't send you the instructions. Idots.

hello, i was wondering if you can send me (or tell me where i can get) the instruccions for this tipe of origami, beacuse the only ones i got are to easy thank you.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
What a bunch of dumbasses.

1. This article is 3 years old.

2. The blog author did not make the dragon he's just reporting on it.

3. Even, if this was the creator's blog, just use some common sense. He spent 40+ hours to create a unique piece of art. Why would he give out instructions for it? Further more, why would he take time to send them out individually to a bunch of random douchebags on the Internet?

4. There are NO instructions to send, so stop asking.

Hey, if you could please give me the origami instructions for that dragon i would be very happy???. Plus I would post it on a bunch of sites so people don't have to keep asking you for them. Again, plaese!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!¡!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!thanx

I saw that picture in an origami book I have. Wasn't surprised when I found it on web, but I sure was surprised to see that it was made of one piece of paper from my book.

Over all: PURE AWESOME!!!

Truly a marvelous piece of art. You are a true origami master. Will like if possible instruction for this masterpiece, e-mail;madsapido1@yahoo.com thanks
