Crease Pattern Challenge 006

Crease Pattern Challenge, Origami

I was gone last week, so I decided to do some extra this week. First up is Origami Tanteidan’s Crease Pattern Challenge #6, which is an eastern style Dragon by Seiji Nishikawa.

Mine came out a bit different. He’s ended up more of a plant gecko. His face has a kind of leaves on a stalk feel.

Seiji Nishikawa has a several books and hundreds of models, so I thought I’d include a few more of those here. His Pegasus is in his book and Tanteidan Convention Book 4.

It’s not as thin and fancy as a lot of pegasii out there, but I like it more for it. This Pegasus actually looks like he could circle the head of a sea monster as opposed to many other “I’m pretty!” pegasii you see.

His Godzilla was diagrammed in Tanteidan Magazine 39. I dolled up the back plates a bit, but I may have overthinned him to do it.

I like him a lot, but the legs are a bit small. Nishikawa’s original has straight legs (no knees) which helps with this, but the legs look thinner that way. He does seem to get taller with every movie. He’s only attacking to keep his dancer’s legs in shape.
