Divine Dragon Bahamut Take 1 by Kessukoofah Divine Dragon Bahamut Take 1 by Kessukoofah
I am 100% dissatisfied with how this came out. Look at the legs! Look at the arms! It doesn't even look like a dragon! This was BLOODY hard! On the other hand, I also finally finished the dragon. took a while. damn thing has 275 steps. so ya, there's that. And I'll come back to it again, maybe with a bigger paper, cuz even with the rather large (50cm or so) paper I used, some of the fold were really small. So I'll move up to 70cm paper and try again. For now though, try and be happy with this much. I know I have to be.

Wow...if you think that due to this model (the only one in my gallery I'm honestly not happy about), then I dunno what you'll think of me when I redo it better...:iconcoolplz:

Why thank you! Though to be honest, this isn't really my best work. Many of the other ones I've uploaded recently are much better. I'm glad you like them though!

nice. you finished it. only prblem is "messy"
My paper ripped during the step "pleat while squashing the top portion", then I only tried it once for a challenge from 20 cm papeer, but I wasn't able to see a single crease, so I never attempted again.........

Ya, it did turn out messy, but I find I have that problem with all of the most complicated models (where I'd put the majority of Kamiya's models). the problem is mostly that while I'm working on a particular section the rest tends to unravel a bit, so I'm developing methods of holding it all in place while I do that. The only way I'll get better is to keep trying and try to get neater each time.

And ya, 20cm seems really small for a project like this. I would say at least 35cm-40cm here, but I also have big fingers...your milage may vary.

see this.[link]
and this.

and why exactly do you think that box pleating a joke?do you know that the best of the designers(even KAMIYA!!!!!(see [link])) use it? I use it so much, it has never given me problems. almost all of the models you see here are box-pleated.
