    Various Dinosaur models

    I've been a huge dinosaur geek for as long as I can remember. Something about fantastical animals that actually lived but are long gone is intriguing. So in my spare time I often find myself doing bits of paleoart, but it's been ages since I've had that sort of spare time. Now that things have calmed down a bit in my life I'm having a blast (digitally) sculpting dinosaurs again. Deinonychus has always been one of my very favorites. I was first introduced to this little speedy killer through Dino-Riders and then got to see them realized on the big screen in Jurassic Park (although improperly named Velociraptor for complicated reasons). When John Ostrom first described this animal in the 60s he noted how very similar it was to Archaeopteryx in nearly every detail except size and proportions. This lead to a revolution in our understanding of dinosaurs, and Deinonychus became a kind of poster-boy for active warm blooded dinos. Now they know these guys were far more birdlike than they imagined even 20 years ago. It was really fun sculpting him and I hope to have this physically prototyped soon.

    I got the figure recently. As many of you know shapeways materials just don't like being photographed so you can't really see the detail. I'm really happy with how it came out though. He's nine inches long and at 1:12 scale he is about in scale with MOTUC figures which is kind of cool. Now if I can just stay steady enough to paint it...

    thanks JafariStew!

    Here is another one I'm working on, it's Pachyrhinosaurus . I always thought it was a really cool Dinosaur but there really aren't any models of it out there that are both accurate and aesthetically pleasing.

    Seems like no one ever comes to this section of the boards anymore, but I'll keep posting because someone has to! Other Fan Creations need some love too.

    Next up is Yutyrannus the recently discovered feathered Tyrannosaur from China. It lived in a relatively cold climate for the Cretaceous, even enduring snowy winters, so the extra fluff likely served as insulation. A friend of mine jokingly referred to it as a "Yetisaurus" which I quite liked.
