My 8 year old son painted these shortly after his birthday last spring. I actually liked his colors and the pattern on the Carnotaurus. Mostly I was over joyed that he didn’t glob the paint on for once. A few weeks ago I decided to paint the eyes, teeth, claws, and base for him. Them a coat of sealer. I think they look great for the toy box. Here are my crappy before and after.
Wasn't totally happy with how this came out. I wanted a reptilian version of a tiger pattern for stalking in the jungle. Colour scheme worked I think and overall it's a great model but it has some issues I struggled with.
It's not symmetrical, the ridges and scales on each side are in different places and don't align making the patterning problematic. That coupled with the fact that some of the larger scales fade out and a lot of the smaller scales are almost indistinct took some of the fun out if it. Normally I enjoy doing scales and applying washes and dry rushing as well as picking out patterns on individual scales but this was hard work.
Will still make the kids worry when it hits the tabletop though 🙂
It's a great day in the Cretaceous Period, hot, humid and just a bit oppressive. The raptors* have gathered to discuss hunting strategies.
Of course there may be disagreements about tactics...
And who gets to lead the pack during the hunt...
Sorry for the fuzziness. Still getting used to the new light set up in the photo booth.
*Including a pair of Wizkids Deep Cuts raptors
