Introduction: Zerg Hydralisk Origami

About: Hi! I'm Wilson, I'm from Indonesia but I'm studying in Australia for now.

If you play StarCraft or WarCraft DoTA (Defence of the Ancients), you will recognize this creature. In Starcraft this creature called Zerg Hydralisk, a predator and carnivorous alien creature. In WarCraft DoTA, this creature's name is Lesale Deathbringer or best known as the Venomancer, which is very expert on venom and poisons. Now I've created it's origami model.

Step 1: : Materials

The material for this project is just a sheet of paper. Size of the paper doesn't matter. I suggest 150 150 mm. Use brown-colored papers, you can also use orange-colored papers but light brown's the best.

Step 2: : Basic Steps

First, fold the paper half. Then fold it half again. Open model. Fold down 1/4 of the paper. Unfold. Then Fold down 1/8 of the paper. Fold down the side layers to the center of the line. Pull the point of the paper, then squash fold.

Step 3: : Head's Down!

Fold up the preliminary base. So it is looks like a half-finished bird base. Fold down. Sink fold the tip of it (just a bit, not much). Fold it up again. Fold down the tip of it again. The fold the side to the center line (so it's looks like a kite). Fold down the 'head' exactly as the line that's created by the two folded sides. Open the two sides, keep the 'head' folded down.

Step 4: : Forming the Neck

Fold the sides to the center just like when you're making the head. Pull the point and squash fold. Then fold up (just like the head). Now gently, pull the jaw down ( Pull it until it cannot be pulled anymore). Fold it to form the jaw. Fold down the head.

Step 5: : Hardest Part : Claws

Valley fold the left side. then fold down half of it. Reverse mountain fold it. Then fold up the arm, fold down the layer down. Fold down the arm. Open the upper layer. 'Insert' the tip layer into it. Repeat on the other side.

Step 6: : Reptillian Body

Fold the model half, symmetrically. Tuck the heads up. Then rabbit-ear fold up the arm. Fold down about half of it, to form it's scythe-like claws. Sink to thin the arm. Repeat on the other arm. Fold back about 1/5 from it's arm. Fold back the tip of it's back (so the body should looks more thinner)

Step 7: : Finishing Touch: the Tail

Open the tail. Fold about 1/3 of it down. Fold down the two corners down. Fold it down again (So the tail looks more sharper). Fold down the two sides of the tail (Just a bit the tail is already thin). And for the finishing, curl the tail so it's looks like a snake. Balance it's body so it can stand. And voila! We're done! The Hydralisk is ready to defend the Zerg Colony!
