Origami Brachiosaurs by origami-artist-galen Origami Brachiosaurs by origami-artist-galen
I always thought my previous brachiosaur design (in pearl) had a tail which was too short, so I modified the base which also added layers to the legs giving them much needed bulk to support the model.



Designed by: Shuki Kato
Folded from: one 15" square of Origamido and one square of Nicolas terry's tissue foil
Size: 7" and 8" tall
Size: ~7" tall

Yup, that's one of the main pictures of reference which convinced me that I had to lengthen the tail. And yet, I can't help but notice that other pictures of brachiosaurus/giraffatitan look so different, including Scott Hartman's.

The newer design could still balance with a more horizontal neck angle if need be, whereas the old one would fall flat on its nose without that S-shaped neck.

I think the curve of the neck looks natural on your models, making it more horizontal would make it look as if it was reaching forward. I would say if you are looking for a neutral possition of the neck, you appear to be there :) The thing about Hartman's skeletal is proposing thicker neck musculature, and that isn't unreasonable considering the weight of such a humongous neck. =)
