1/40 Ceratosaurus - Released
« on: March 19, 2012, 11:20:17 PM »
Here are a few photos of the armature for a 1/40 Ceratosaurus-it measures a little over 8 inches- basing it on the estimated largest size according to my research-

You appear to have a fascination with teeth, Lio... ;D

This, of course, is gorgeous, Malcolm.

I have been way too busy lately- I had a little time and wanted to post a few photos of things-
Once I had the mold made for the 1/40 cerato, I took the clay pattern from the new mold and wanted to take advantage of the main advantage to using plastilene clay- I can reposition the sculpt and now I will make a new pattern using the original sculpt as a starting point.
 
Here are some photos showing the repositioned sculpt- then I fill in the rough areas up to the detail of the original sculpt-changing little things as I can to make it more unique.

I don't know, I like the old one as well..but there is something to be said for more action oriented poses.  I guess you found a good way to make us spend more money eh ?  lol ;D

Now maybe open the mouth ?  ;)

I love the extra texture and the row of spines along the back, that adds a lot of character  8)

It's amazing what you can end up with when you start with such 'humble' material as cardboard and wire hangers! Is there ever an issue with mold inside the model though?

The finished models are cast solid in urethane resin- the cardboard and hanger armatures are within the clay pattern which is discardable once the mold is made from the pattern. In this case I reused the armature by repositioning it. The clay patterns are not around long enough to get mold issues- once the mold is done and the pattern becomes obsolete, I strip all ofthe clay form the armature and reuse the clay- throwing out the armature.

Thanks for the insight. I probably should've realized that the cast is no good once you create a mold, haha.

Hm, both poses are good, in my view. I kind of like the peacefulness of the first one. No reason every dinosaur has to be rampaging about.

I agree- the first pose is the less common pose- there are more sculpts of therapods running or doing some sort of ballet balancing act than just calmly plodding along

I figure having one of both covers your bases pretty well.. ;)

The original position is WAY better! By the way, whatever happened to the ceratosaurus sitting on a nest? I think that one will be even better than this one once it's finished :).
