The proportions are not quite right, but this is supposed to be a hydralisk:

### Instructions

1. Take a square sheet of paper and fold it along all four symmetry axes. I recommend to fold the diagonals in both directions.

2. Put the edges of the sheet on top of the diagonals (all eight possibilities) and crease the paper from the corner till the middle axis:

3. Use the folds just made to shape the paper as shown:

It is a form with four tips.
4. Choose two opposing tips and fold them outward as shown (reverse fold):

When viewed from above, the shown right angle should appear:

Because such a reverse fold changes the direction of the diagonal fold, it made sense to crease the diagonals in both directions.
5. Take one of the other two tips and fold it backwards with a reverse fold, as shown:

The two lines marked in red in the following image should come to lie on top of each other:

6. Now we make the head. Fold the last remaining tip along the red lines:

Important: Crease only the outside layer. The layer on the other side remains uncreased, so that it bulges:

7. Strengthen the creases a little:

8. Fold the front of the head backward:

9. ... and fold a part of it forward:

10. ... and fold a part of that again forward/downward:

11. On the backside there is a corner (the midpoint of the paper). Pinch it sideways and fold it to one side, so that the neck stays in shape:

12. At the shoulders, fold backwards as shown, so that the head stays up:

13. Fold the arms forward:

You cannot see it here, but these are reverse folds. In the next image you can see it better; there the creases made in this step are highlighted again in green.
14. Fold the arms upward at a right angle using a valley fold (single red line), so that the rest of the arm is aligned vertically, and turn the arms' tips downward using an outside reverse fold (red line pair):

15. To stabilize the arms, fold over their fronts upward:

Done!
