If I am ever in the same state as you are remind me to check out your dinosaur park.
People say modern dinosaurs are not scary. They clearly have not had to fight for their lives against geese.

Head up, Blade, I think someone from Stan Winston's workshop has started posting under your name.  :))
In the kingdom of the blind, better take public transit. Well, in the kingdom of the sighted, too, really--almost everyone is a terrible driver.

Or NC or VA. Heís near the easternmost tip of TN. Iíve visited a couple times; itís well worth the drive to see his incredible work.

Is it accurate? No. Is it awesome? You bet your toes it is. That thing looks ready to eat me,  which is both a compliment and a silent scream of terror. Say, have any of your visitors gone missing?

This may actually be a solution to a few problems, you see I have an annoying teacher and you have hungry dinosaurs. Maybe we should just let these problems naturally solve each other  O:-) ;)

Can we get an F in the chat for both? In all seriousness this is very good! I love it, the dust streaks look really good on it!
See, your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.

Sadly Iím a few states away meaning itís unlikely (also high school gets almost zero field trips). However there are other ways to get nature to sort itself out  >:D

With those eyes you're going to go full Uncanny Valley.

IDK, they look kind of cute to me. The left one especially looks like a scaly puppy.

I would love to see you do a whole dinosaur with a sculpted epoxy putty skin like you do on the heads, that would be epic, more expensive but epic! You could probably skin it on top of your vinyl to save on expanding foam. I've done some big pieces, life sized human etc and you don't really use too much epoxy. Something the size of the Dilo would be doable, an Apatosaurus well that's another story.
Paint job is great on the Dilo.

P.S. Love the signage.

While not the most accurate of sculptures, they definitely look awesome and those eyes in the dark would be awesome to see.

The eyes are made for lion usually.  I like inserting a little personality where possible too. See my Velociraptors for further examples. :)

Thanks yeah I get a similar vibe, I guess young animals tend to be cute no matter the species.

Thanks bud!  I've attempted it one before, I made a "Ducky" semi/accurate  as I was planning a Land Before Time tribute with accurate juveniles. But it was shelved for now.   

These guys will have full epoxy skin, but I had to cheat and use a texture stamp, the epoxy was hardening too fast at the rate I sculpt. 


I've spent about 132.00 on Apoxie Sculpt thus far, but I think that will be it.

While not the most accurate of sculptures, they definitely look awesome and those eyes in the dark would be awesome to see.

lol ok I'll bite, what's not accurate ? There aren't any fossils for these I just sorta compiled data and did my best approximation.
