Thanks guys!

Love the colors you chose for the sauropod, its quite stunning. I really like it. I did want to ask...are the eggs supposed to accompany the sauropod piece itself or were they for another possible model or something?


The eggs were originally made for my Iguanodon. But They can be used for many different kinds of Dinosaurs. My understanding is that sauropod eggs were rounder, so these are probably better for hadrosaurs.

Personaly i would never do a sauropod that way but it worked out ok
Your very right about the eggs
Sauropode aggs are rounded
Maybe a idea for a nexxt project including a hatching egg ;)

   From the hadrosaur eggs I have seen, they tend to be more shaped like a football, whereas sauropod eggs seem to resemble soccer balls. The eggs you created would likely pass for ceratopsian or perhaps theropod eggs, but most closely resemble the latter. Cannot say for sure about Iguanodon, dont have much information regarding its eggs.

I've got a fun one! It is 1:30 scale and works well with my other models. Presenting... The Reaper Lizard! And yes it can stand on its own, it leans on it's front left claw

Nice sculpt overall,  but the legs look a bit thin. Kind of reminds me of barbecue chicken drumsticks when they're almost done and have shrunken back somewhat.  :P

Well that's why I post on here; to get feedback ;) I'll see what I can do with those drumsticks, thanks ;)

Looking good other than the aforementioned legs. I honestly think the animal had feathers, however that doesn't detract from it at all.  8)

Looks great, feathers or no feathers..I'm on the fence there myself with these guys.

The feet themselves look good, thigh too. The calf should be bulkier and a more rounded, the lower part of that area before the ankle/foot starts should be a little wider in profile too.

Been doing my homework on therizinosaurs for our upcoming Nothronychus build. :)

Thanks Blade! I'll definitely make those adjustments  ;)

I made this piñata for a little boy who lives in our apartments. He turned 3 yrs old.

That's awesome! Both in design and that you would do that too!

It's almost a shame to whack it to death..

Ha ha, yes, that piñata is gold! I love the chubby cheeks filled (presumably) with candy.

Yes it was a bit painful  :)) I recorded it in slow motion. I do have the template I made though... Maybe I'll get a chance to make another one.

Yup! Sort of reminded me of a squirrel's cheeks stuffed with nuts  :D

Hello! Still experimenting! This time I tried a blue color scheme. One of the big differences between this paint job and the last, is this time I went from dark to light instead of doing the base coat light and the scales darker. Also everything has a similar hue instead of red/orange on tan.

No it's just dry brush. The first layer is dark blue covering everything. The second layer is brushed on the high spots, it has a little more green and white to it. The third layer is the light stripes as well as some light dry brushing with the same color.

That looks really good!

Thanks! I'm really enjoying it
