Here are the complete instructions for folding my origami Hydralisk, from StarCraft. This package includes detailed diagrams, with photos of every step as well as intermediate folds. There is also a photo gallery of the finished model.

Enjoy! Hope it was worth the wait! :D

Update:
I've uploaded a video of the folding animation to YouTube: [link]
It's just a lower quality version of what's already here, but hey, now it's on YouTube! :lol:

WHOA!! This was fun. I made it!!
11 was hard, but I had a torn piece of paper so the arms ended up rather odd...

Here it is!

Wow, you're right. I haven't really done any origami since then, though, so have no new designs to share...

Oh well?

Props for the design and the flash instructions, but step 11 and beyond proved epically impossible. Perhaps a nice, slow of video on one being folded would help....

I am stuck on step eleven and twelve. I normally understand how to do these things pretty well, I just turned my scrap piece of paper I messed up on into a cat, so I am not a complete newb to origami. I just cannot understand the motion you have to do. SO CONFUSING! :threaten: driving me nuts..
Other than that, all I can do is thank you excessively for making these instructions.

Missing an 'o' key? :o Anyway, I'm very glad to hear that it was easy to follow. :) It didn't start out that way. My early usability tests were very confusing to people. :p But then I came up with that whole before and after layout that I think worked pretty well. Thanks. :aww:

Yes I actually *was* missing an 'o' key. I had vacuumed it earlier that day. So I had to dig it out of the dust-bag, and wash it, the 'o' ';p' '[' and ']' keys were drying in the sun XD

And . good job! Usability testing is something more ppl should do. This is a good tutorial, as in: it really makes you *want* to do what is explained.
