agedgent74plus, if you would please post the video link you're referencing, I'll be able to help you out, otherwise I'd just be guessing.

Alternatively, for a good quality video of Trollip's Harp Seal Pup, you can go here, where Ms. Sara Adams gives a clear video describing how to construct the pup. If this is the video you are using, please let me know and I can help you out.

Hopefully this will help; if not, please either post the URL to the video you're referencing, or reference the time from the video I linked.

I'm guessing at your problem, but you're probably doing the reverse folds (at around 15:40) slightly wrong. The front should be on the diagonal crease, and the back should be on the horizontal creases you just made. (This will be true for both left and right sides, I only drew the left side here though.)

Image After

Let me know if this fixed it, or if you are still confused, or if I guessed the wrong step. If you still need help, post a picture of what you've folded if you can so I can help you figure it out better.

Have fun!

Please post a picture of what you have so I don't have to keep guessing.

Was your paper colored at 14:45 and 15:27?

Sounds like you've "reverse-folded" it too far inward. You're supposed to reverse along the vertical precrease from about 15:11, not push the raw edge until it lies along the center.

But yes, please upload a photo if you want help, I'm just guessing and might not be right.
