  2. 14:50 "Released the trapped paper." That was hardest part for me… paper starting to get ripped because of too much folding..

  3. Solo llegue al minuto 14 y con muchas dificultades los dobleces pequeño no se veían bien pero creo que está bien el tutorial más que otros pero ayudaria un poco de tenga unos pequeños subtítulos donde te diga que doblar o dibujos muestra y un poco más de iluminación

  4. this is my first time doing origami but i’ve always been good with paper and it actually turned out so well 😭😭 thank you! it’s only a bit crumpled at the wings

  5. Can't wait to give this to my friend and mentor who is also a dragon lover… right after I redo it with a piece of paper with significantly less "mistake" folds

  6. got confused at 4:15 🙁 could not "release the paper"
    Edit: the peice of paper mildly resembles a pterodactyl

  7. Твои видео просто говно и ты сам козёл ёбаный иди в баню со своим гавнодавом

  8. Your tutorials are amazing! Even though it's too hard for me to make it, it's my fault not yours. Keep it up and don't be discouraged just because some people can't do it, because others can!

  9. ありがとうございます。
