My first prehistoric creature sculpt. Hopefully more to come.
Meanwhile please criticise it and tell me the anatomical details I got wrong. One of the pictures is it without the pattern I did later.

Hello and welcome to the forum :)

From the first pic I thought it would be a plush :D.... quite good for a first run, like it best in the first picture, cause I personally find those white dots and lines distracting and too hard in contrast. Maybe it would look more natural with a bit of transistion between the white and blue.
