It has been a while since I last blogged a fold. Truth be told the end of the term beat me up a lot – coupled with a savage cold, auto-immune rash (I still have) and an infected tear duct, on top of the marking and reporting it beat me up proper:
That said, folding remains a refuge and I did fold a lot in the interim, just did not blog about it – must redress the balance.
I “found” a set of diagrams, well, stumbled across them on Pinterest (the largest bastion of copyright infringement) and decided it was worth a fold after seeing an unauthorised youtube video tutorial of the same fold (I must have skipped over it while scanning the document).
This is a “modular” dragon – made from a square, triangle and smaller square (proportions 1, 1/4, 1/8 for body, wings and head) it holds together quite nicely without glue and is a lovely dense fold with lots of possibility.
I like the head – quite simple by other dragon standards, it looks snappy and manages the colour changes nicely. The wings are thin and more western-style, but they slot into a socket in the shoulders really positively. the body has some lovely texture, colour change management to make the underbelly a different colour and some cunning crimps to make a lovely serpentine shape. the legs are well proportioned and really stable.
From one large square split from a new duo red Kraft roll I bought from Ikea (they are selling it as wrapping paper at the moment, like the duo black and duo white kraft I bought earlier) I have enough for 3 full dragons, a “weyr” indeed.
