  1. If i can get 250 subs by february 22 ill do a 24hr livestream of origami models simplified, subscribe for the stream guys!

  2. I also have an egg because its easter and its small enough to fit inside it so I put the dragon in the egg and said "I RAISING A DRAGON!".

  3. This is incredible. By the way. Can there be a tutorial of the model you have as your profile picture on Twitter?

  4. If I didn’t use double sided paper, would the white side of the paper be showing on the finished model?

  5. Somehow mine has it's head looking up at a 45 degree angle, I must have skipped a step somewhere. Doesn't look that bad if I angle the arms to be pointing up
