10 More Amazing Origami Dragons

You’ve seen 10 Amazing Origami Dragons? Well this is 10 MORE Amazing Origami Dragons!

I am delighted to make another list of beautiful and impressive Origami Dragons and include those designs I couldn’t fit into the first one. Again this is just a list, not a ‘top ten,’ because I just don’t think it would be fair to rank them; they are all beautiful and original in their own right.

1. 3-Headed Red Dragon

‘Pure’ Origami made from a single piece of by 120cmX120cm paper by Dragon Knight 2.0 on Flickr where you can see more pictures of this dragon plus more they have made. It is incredible! Who would have thought it was possible to make a triple-headed dragon from a single piece of paper? And the heads are so detailed and expressive. This really is a masterpiece!

Pg 53: A Closed Book

This week in Epic Fail: Tinuvielle thinks she may be able to open the sealed spell-book with magic, but it remains stubbornly shut.

Creator’s Commentary: Grr. I think the hardest part of doing this comic is thinking up titles for the pages! I know they don’t exactly need titles, but I think it’s useful for people who are flicking through the archives to know more-or-less where they are.

YAY! The first bit of real magic. I hope you like the special effects. I think they are cool!

Tinuvielle is supposed to be a very beautiful Elf, so I’ve been working on her face to make her more attractive. In D&D terms I think her Comeliness is 19 or something like that.

Webcomic Spotlight: LINT

LinT

LINT follows the journey of Sangwine Schloeffle, an exiled elven prince, whose family has been murdered and kingdom usurped by the evil Fang, Overlord of Darkness!

LINT is, and will probably always be, one of my all time favourite comics.  I started reading it when it was still in pencil and the fact that it started out from fairly basic artwork and developed into something much more beautiful is a great inspiration.  For me it is part of the comics charm and those early drawings should never be replaced.

The plot, too, advanced from a light-hearted adventurers jaunt into a complex, well thought out, emotional experience.  Later on the tone becomes more serious, but it still has a sort of tongue-in-cheek irreverence to it.  It has made me laugh and it has made me cry.  The juxtaposition of humour and drama works to heighten them both.  That’s a style I admire and would like to do something similar in my own work.

I’m writing this now because, after five years, the story of LINT is complete.  It’s sad, because I will miss reading it, but also wonderful.  There is satisfaction in completion.  Heaven knows I have experienced the frustration of webcomics that have ended half way through a story!  And hopefully the author, Colby Purcell, will go on to create other things.

Go and read LINT.  It’s made of awesome.

I’ve been given my first ever fan art!!!

tinuvielle_by_purenightshade

Purenightshade of Children of the Tiger gave me my first ever fan art!  It’s of Tinuvielle and I think it’s absolutely beautiful.  I literally danced around the room when I got this.

I found Children of the Tiger a while ago.  There are some stylistic similarities between our comics, so if you like mine you may well like hers.  It’s one of my regular comics to read and I’m really enjoying it.

By the way, there is now a fan art gallery XD
