Origami Hydralisk

Welcome to how to make an
origami Hydralisk. This
complicated piece of folded
paper will go great with your
collection of other StarCraft
memorabilia. Whether you
are a casual or hardcore
gamer, an origami Hydralisk
is a great way to pay homage
to one of the greatest games
every made: StarCraft.
Before we begin the origami process, we should take a
couple of minutes to learn the rich history of origami.
• Basic techniques in origami have
• The word origami is derived helped advance science. The,
from, “‟ori‟ meaning „to fold‟, “Miura map fold is a rigid fold that
and ‟kami‟, meaning paper.”1 has been used to deploy large
solar panel arrays for space
satellites.” It treats a rigid material
like a piece of origami paper. 2

• The crane is a very common

piece of origami art as it is an
auspicious symbol in the
Japanese culture. 1
• Buddhist monks brought
paper from China to Japan
during the 6th century. The
very first, “Japanese origami
is dated from this period.”1
Origami Paper
Although any paper can be used in origami folding, they all have their
advantages and disadvantages. Figure 1 details what each paper does best. We
recommend kami for the Hydralisk but regular printer paper will also suffice.

The Hydralisk
Warnings and Cautions
• Since origami is a very paper intensive activity,
please be careful of paper cuts.
– If you do cut yourself, immediately stop and take
care of the cut.
• Disinfect the affected area with rubbing alcohol
• Apply a liquid bandage to the affected area to seal off the
pain receptors from the air.
• Be patient. Origami is not a quick activity. Take
time and make sure all your creases and folds
are accurate.
Step 1

1) Crease the paper along the

middle in all the directions
shown in the first picture.
Steps 2 - 3

2) Fold along a diagonal crease to

create a triangle.
3) Fold along the middle crease of
that triangle and make a smaller
Steps 4 - 5

4) Push the left corner of the triangle

(blue) to the right side, folding along
the creases.
5) Smoothing the folds should create
the square (left), turn it over to do the
same thing again.
Steps 6- 7

6) This time, pull the right corner

(blue) to the left side, folding along
the creases.
7) Smooth out the folds to create a
square. Now both sides should be
square shaped.
Steps 8 - 9

8) Make the diagonal creases drawn

(dashed), by folding and unfolding the
flap created by pulling the left corner to
the center.
9) After making the diagonal creases on
the left and right, make the horizontal
crease by folding the top down so that the
resulting flap‟s two corners meet the
edges of the diagonal creases.
Steps 10 - 12

10) Pull the bottom corner (blue) up above

the entire origami, folding along the
horizontal crease (dashed).
11) Smooth out the folds along the creases
to make the diamond shape (green).
12) Flip over to do the same thing to the
other side.
Steps 13 - 14

13) Pull the bottom corner (blue) up above

the entire origami, folding along the
horizontal crease (dashed).
14) Smooth out the folds along the creases
to make the diamond shape (green).
Step 15

15) Fold in the left and right corners

to center to make 2 new flaps.
Steps 16 - 17

16) Flip what you just did over, so

you can do the same thing to the
other side.
17) Again, fold in the flaps from the
left and right to make the
resultant kite-shape (left).
Steps 18 - 19

18) Fold one of the legs to the side

to create a diagonal crease that
starts at the apex of that opening
19) Fold the flap back, revealing the
crease you have made (green).
Step 20

20) Now along that crease you had

just made, make a reverse fold
(turning the leg inside out).
Step 21

21) Do the same thing to the other


Note: Making a crease first can

make reverse folds neater. They are
optional and sometimes can be
22) Turn the origami around so you can make the next folds
23) Fold in the corners on the side (blue) to the center, creating 2 new flaps.
24) Flip the origami to the other side and do the same thing, thinning what will
become the hydralisk‟s arms (green).
25) Make a crease (dashed) by folding the leg so that it is
perpendicular to the other leg.
26) Use that crease to make a reverse fold that results in the leg
pointing perpendicularly away from the rest of the model.
Step 27a

27a) Make another reverse fold

(dashed) that will result in the
remaining of the leg pointing
perpendicularly (green) to the previous
Step 27b

27) b) Make one last reverse fold (dashed)

Note: This step will make the hydralisk‟s tail will point away from the
ground when it will be able to stand.
Steps 28 - 29

28) Hold the arms (green) in half along the

center (dashed) so that all components of the
arms are perpendicular to the tail (pink).
29) Bring the top corner (blue) of the leg down
(arrow) so that it makes a flat surface with the
top of the arms.
Note: Laying the flat surface down on the table
should now result in the tail pointing straight up
towards you (orange)

Note: At this point, rotating the

hydralisk around should reveal a flat
side that is composed of the top of
the arms (green) and what used to
be the outer sides of the leg
Steps 30 - 31

30) Open up the underside of what will be the

hydralisk‟s head (green).
Note: To be sure you are not opening more than
you should, you should check that you are not
revealing any white surfaces.
31) Fold the tip of the head up at where the
creases first meet and split into more creases as
they move up from the tip (dashed).
Step 32

32) Fold the tip (blue) down from a

different fold, about ¼ of the way to
the tip (dashed)

Note: If you did this right, you should

have shortened the length of the
head by about 1 cm.
Step 33

33) Fold down the sides (dashed) so

that the hydralisk looks like a shorter
version of what it was before step 30.
Step 34

34) Turn the hydralisk upside down

again, and fold the tip (green) down
so it is tucked under the head.
Step 35

35) Make reverse folds (dashed) with

the arms so they almost span out
straight away with from the body.

Note: This is one of those occasions

where it is impossible to make a
crease before making the reverse
Step 36

36) Crease arm about half way, and

make a reverse fold that points the
arm straight back.
37) Make another reverse fold half way along the last segment of the arm.
38) Make reverse folds in the same manner for the other arm.
Steps 40 - 41

40) Fold the arm all the way forward

(green) at an angle (dashed)
Note: The angle you chose should result
with the last segment of the hydralisk arm
pointing away from its body.
41) Make any other necessary bends and
folds until the arm is positioned at the
hydralisk‟s side as shown (pink)
Step 42

42) Turn the hydralisk to the other

side and fold the other arm down in
the same manner.

Note: At this point, your hydralisk

should look reptilian and menacing.
Final touches

44) Fold what used to be the tip of the

head back out.
Note: What used to be the tip of the head
should now look like a sharp tongue.
45) Make any necessary adjustments so
that your hydralisk can balance and stand
on its own.
