A long time ago, in a galaxy far away...
« on: February 13, 2018, 07:43:18 PM »
...well, kinda. I'm doing a Paleoart series involving dinosaurs with color schemes reminiscent of Star Wars characters. I have many of them mapped out, but I just keep coming short on choosing a species for my favorite SW character of all, Boba Fett. Obviously, it can't be too iconic of a species (for example, T. rex) for a character that only gets sparse moments of screen time. But at the same time, it must match the mysteriousness & deadliness of the Fett. For those reasons, I am pretty much opposed to using any large tyrannosaurs.

Right now, some of my top choices are: Saurophaganax, Bahariasaurus, Suchomimus and Torvosaurus. But I'm opened to suggestions. Any ideas?

As far as mysterious, Suchomimus was probably at least partially aquatic, and this concealed. As a side note, Star Wars creature Boga is essentially a modern reconstruction of a dinosaur, feathers and all.
Got Brachauchenius?

First of all, good luck with this series  :)  It is a fairly interesting story idea and I'm glad you shared it with us.


As for the character representing Boba Fett, I'd suggest Dakotaraptor. This genus is not necessarily recognisable to the general public, but it is definitely well recognised enough by paleo-enthusiasts as a somewhat iconic genus.

In terms of mysteriousness, it is known from fairly fragmentary remains and is speculated to not be very common in its habitat. In terms of deadliness, it has a sickle claw, which would likely be useful when hunting, and it is a fairly large dromaeosaur, which would almost certainly make it a main predator in its environment.

It has a sprawling stance....

Carnotaurus and an undetermined large dromeasaur are both already reserved for other SW characters.

I may play around with some thumbnails....
