Title : Good and Stuck



A lone Stegosaurus has shown a Ceratosaurus just why you don't mess with them. Unfortunately for both they fighting on a very unstable cliff side..when the dust settles the Stegosaurus is exhausted and finds itself on a very small ledge...with it's tail still impaling the twitching Ceratosaurus and it's slowly falling to the edge...judging by the Pterosaurs below..they are quite a ways up from anything close to the ground.

Long time no update.  I finally started back working on the Spino last week.  My last effort on it was at the end of August :

It really used to be.. ;D  We would put on a  free haunt for the kids each season...but I moved on to doing a pro-haunted attraction.

I really wish to combine the two somehow one day..do a haunted attraction in October and the rest of the year run a dinosaur park. ;)

The paintjob on the Spino is outstanding!  And agreed this must be awesome on Halloween.

Thanks ! He's definitely going to stand out I think.. heh ;D

Once  I get his paint done I have to move him to his new spot and get the "swamp " dug around him.  ;)

Anyone have any opinions on the eyes ? I'm planning to do them in green..not sure about whether to make them with round or slanted pupils though.

Lime green certainly would stand out.  Slit pupils are usually found in nocturnal animals.  Regardless if you intend this guy to be nocturnal or not I think slits would look really cool.

 ???  Blade does your house look like a boat, or what is that in the first picture?

If you want accuracy round pupils is the way to go for something which is more related to birds than to anything else.

And as I said in the "old" forum, great job with the colors!

That's my problem.  I know all dinosaurs are related to birds..but it's environment , behavior and look see to be very crocodile in appearance. I know the JP3 Spino has the croc-eyes and it looks good...but then all that piled against the fact it's a bird. So I can see why the general public has a problem figuring it out as well.. lol

Chris, I don't think I've seen your Spino this far along. He's looking really good. I especially like the colors. And in those night shots, he looks amazing!

Hehe ! Thank you very much ! He certainly does..the night shots give a great black background I think. :)

I do love being impressed with my own work..it happens so rarely though. When it does I feel like Tom Hanks in Castaway... " Look what I have created ! " lol ;D
