Here's the sketches/layouts for those iPad pics, sketched elements sometimes get shuffled around and scaled to tweak the composition.

Made this old T. rex years ago, probably Blender 2.5x or 2.6x.

Moreover, this is scientifically sound and no movie monster! :)

Thanks. Like the steg bones, the rex model was based on and scaled to skeletal restorations, in this case specimen FMNH PR2081. If I ever re-attempt a rex I would model over the 3D scans the Smithsonian released of their rex skeleton. A few years after I made that model I undertook a quite large T. rex project for 3D print, here's a few working drawings and some photos from the finished project.

I also made THIS W.I.P. THREAD ON THE DINOSAUR TOY FORUM if anyone is interested in how the rex models were researched and constructed.

Amazing how this looks and I guess it takes a lot of research time to start drawing.

Mind blowingly AMAZING!!!

Thanks, made this Trike skull in 2017 before I started doing the W.I.P.s. The bone painted version is printed at 1:24th scale and the bronze effect on is 1:20th.

WOW! AWESOME WORK! You do give James Gurney a run for his money. How about doing some Dinotopis fan art?
Thanks, I'm a big fan of James Gurney but I tend to enjoy doing my own thing.

This is my Velociraptor skull I made a few years ago, like all my skull models it has an articulating jaw. This one I painted up for photography is half scale, about 12 cm long.

Awesome! I have already seen some of these on other sites. I found them when I was looking for updates on new dinosaur toy offerings. ;)

Thanks, I post in a few places as well as here, very occasionally I find someone has found one of my images and put it somewhere new.

A few more old iPad pics I made about 5 to 7 years ago I think. Mostly just personal messing about but the Squirrel guy was requested by someone who was experimenting with game design, don't know if anything came of it.

I designed this spider because I wanted to have a try at making a jointed model. Each leg has a ball joint at the root and a 'knee' hinge. It's completely built using subdivision surfaces with heavy reliance on Blender's sub-D edge creasing.

It works well enough but with Shapeways pricing it's pretty impractal as a toy. I ordered 3, my brothers got a small one each and the large one I stress tested to death :).
