Enjoy! Hope it was worth the wait! :D

It's just a lower quality version of what's already here, but hey, now it's on YouTube! :lol:

Well sir, it´s like 440 in the morning and I finally finnished my 1st attempt!
It sucks, but I managed to do it ^_^
Thank you for this! I need practique...

btw: step 11 could be a little clearer plz????

axcho Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2009
Yay! :D Indeed, step 11 could be a little clearer. I am not sure exactly how to accomplish this. Maybe it would help if I watched some people try it, and see where they get stuck?

Akavirtoon Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2009
The exact place where I get REALLY stuck is the intermediate fold at step 11 where it says: "First fold down, second to go", Just below the screen that says: "Collapse it toghether, this takes 2 separate folds"
hope that helped ;)

Oh, okay. That's good to know, I didn't realize that was a problem area. :) I'll see if I can come up with better instructions there.

What the fuck is this? This is FUCKING IMPOSSIBLE! I can fold some pretty neat shit, and I had full instructions, yet I still cannot, after 2 hours and many pieces of paper, make this fucking thing! I finally got past your fucking "step 11" after watching the fucking video in fullscreen HD a few times, then only to figure out that it only GETS WORSE, woth no video aid whatsoever, just your half-ass photos where you can't tell where the fuck your creases are. Damn right i have to make "a few" to get good at this. The first 10 ended up as little paper balls. You should have put a warning on this. You said it could cause anger. you did NOT say that it could make someone go so far as to think that jabbing hot irons in their eyes could feel better than trying to make this bullshit. Imma try one more time, but it'll be doubly hard after having shoved those hot irons in my eyes. For you to have figured this out WITHOUT instructions is beyond me. you have way to much free time. go get laid. And yes, I made this user just to say all that.

Wow. I am honored. You made an account just to say this? As they say, if you can't get people to care enough to hate your product, you won't be able to get people to love it, either. :D

It sounds like you are feeling very angry and frustrated, because you really wanted to make one of these hydralisks and you were hoping that these instructions would help you. And they didn't meet your expectations. Would you like me to try making a better video, of the full sequence? What is the best thing that I could do right now to help you?

for the swarm?.. I AM THE SWARM

Thanks! Good luck with it. :)

THE SWARM... the overmind or the queen of blades? :p
Reply
:icondarigaaz-the-igniter:
I am the scion of the original overmind, created in its final moments on a small planet near Zerus. however, due to the fact that I was created, brought to full sentience, and gifted with all the knowledge my father possesed all in about two seconds, it has taken me much time to sort out my psyche from this maelstrom of information that fills my being. I am gaining control over the nearby colonies but it will take time before I can regain my birthright from that wench Kerrigan. Once I gain control over the swarm from underneath her nose, those she thought she was controlling shall tear her limb from limb. It is almost too bad that I have to do that. I am impressed at the advances she's made to the swarm's gene pool since her "brrod war."
