Origami Smaug the Golden!

Origami Smaug the Golden by Joseph Wu

Check out this amazingly detailed origami version of Smaug the Golden, the fearsome dragon from The Hobbit, recently constructed by origami artist Joseph Wu. The whole thing was constructed in pieces: head, tail, wings, frame, and more were all separately folded then fastened to each other and wet-folded so the entire thing would become a rigid cohesive piece.

Wu built Smaug off and on over the course of five days and the entire dragon consists of nine sheets of paper.

The tail and torso:

There are a lot more photos of origami Smaug in process over at Joseph Wu's Facebook page. Check them out!


Stubby the Rocket is the mascot of Tor.com. Stubby once ended up in a universe entirely made of paper, then realized it was just playing Super Paper Mario.

This is really worth reading, it has too much details in it and yet it is so simple to understand
