Origamido Giganotosaurus

Compare it to the first rendition from a half-year ago: www.flickr.com/photos/origami-artist-galen/5650389322/in/...


You can see that I modified the back and neck to mostly close the seams; I also widened the neck and totally changed the body region. It's more refined, but it also looks more like a tyrannosaur now...


Designed by Shuki Kato

Folded from: one 15" square of Origamido

Size: 12" from nose to tail

  • Stephen O'Hanlon 4y

    Very impressive! Advice for how to make a 9 and a half model into a 10 out of 10 : 1) Make the back legs longer. Or make the crimp in the legs going forward a lot higher up the leg to make them appear longer. 2) See the neck, where it joins the skull? There needs to be a dip just before that. The larger theropods had muscles acting on curves bony hinge. This would also make the head a little more prominent. 3) Give the impression of eyes, maybe with eye ridges. I know Giganotsuars didn't have developed eye ridges, but the crease parallel to the teeth needs something to display the eyes better. Looking forward to Giganotosaurus v3!

    Stephen O'Hanlon Hmmm, it's something to think about and I'm thankful for the advice, but I respectfully disagree on a few accounts. The legs are about the right length for a Giganto (they might look shorter that actual because of the angle), Tyrannosaurs had longer legs as you probably know.

    I somewhat agree with the "dip" and eye ridges, they're both there, but I tried to sleek them out, maybe too much; they were a little more prominent in the first version:
