Does any one know if Jurassic Titans was created with the use of some Photoshop?

Also, did anyone else think #54: One for the road looked cropped on the left side?

I think it was altered in some way. I believe a single Papo figure was photographed twice from different angles and placed in the picture. The one in the backround has been cut to appear standing behind the rock. That's my hunch - correct me if I'm wrong.  A great pic nonetheless and it's very pleasing to see sauropods win!


Actually no it's not photoshopped. That Brachiosaurus is actually standing in a shallow spot behind the rock. and if you look you can see that in it's reflection.
you might note as well that there is also a slight difference in the colors of the animals because papo over time alters the color patterns on their figures.
I purchased one when they first came out, and the other a few years later.

22. Forgotten forest - I instantly liked this one. The green pattern on the Parasaurolophus blends well with the color tone of the foliage (as do the camouflaged dinos). It looks like the dinosaur is pausing mid-stride to listen.


That was my entry- thank you for the kind words, and I'm happy you liked it!  Your entry was one of my very favorites; it definitely looked natural, as intended.  :D

Hi Sim, I had not seen your post. My bad. Thank you for your vote. The theropod is a Velociraptor, sculpted by Ademar Pereira do Nascimento and cast in resin. One of his old models, released around 2008 or so.

Thanks! :)


The stegosaurs in #25 were Tuojiangosaurus.  I made them out of cardboard, paper mache, beeswax and gesso with poppy seeds and amaranth for scales.  I'm gonna do a making of post this weekend, I'll show some close-up shots of them.

Thanks irimali!  Your entry is amazing!  I really like how you've done and arranged the plants, it must've been very time-consuming but it looks great!  The atmosphere and light in the scene is very nice.  I look forward to seeing more about your entry!

Thanks!  I just started a thread in the diorama page showing some details:

Thank you!  :)  It's the old Wild Safari Para; I actually reviewed it this summer: http://dinotoyblog.com/2015/08/14/parasaurolophus-wild-safari-by-safari-ltd/
