Attempt at a Stegosaurus

Recommended Posts

this is probably a better skeletal reference, it's not quite as scrunched up, and is done by someone more knowledgeable in reconstruction 

 

think i'm going to redo mine's head too, extend the neck a bit and tilt the head up in a more interesting pose

That sounds like you've made significant progress towards not fearing the scalpel. ::D:

ah, i used snippers to take his head off. I'm still nervous at cutting a finger off with a scalpel or ruining something with a dremel, but at least i'm taking steps towards it now!

I was more referring to altering your work, rather than the tools used. 

 

 

ah! i didn't get that, apologies

Have the legs some bulking and sculpted a new head

 

I will probably bring him to RCon to give me something to work on

 

Don't worry, the transition between old neck and new neck will be smoothed out

He has been decapitated a third time so I could shorten his neck a bit. I added new plates onto his neck and gave the arms another bit of bulk

 

I sculpted in the throat and neck too 

 

He is probably too fat / wide but I am not going to nitpick that much. He looks fine from the sides

His fatness bothered me enough to get the Dremel out again. Gave him some liposuction. I also removed his hind left leg because it is shorter than the right one despite the fact both wires started the same length when I started. Going to make it better

You could have just named him Cartman and called him big boned

Looking good to me so far.

he's still thicker than he probably should be, and not as tall from bottom of his rib cage to his spine as he probably should be, but i'm not going to go for that much accuracy. I feel better about his weight now though, even if he's grumpy about the diet he's put on ::P:

Put a thin layer of putty over the rugged areas,sculpted a new leg

 

I also put a layer over the tail

 

This is probably all I do until ReaperCon,since I am taking Julie Guthrie's 'sculpting details in putty' class and plan to get ideas on doing skin detail there

 

and i already smoothed the smudge on the right leg in the picture below

Better!

Aawww, let the poor thing enjoy it's veggies!

Life can be over in a second, see? Isn't that an Allosaurus lurking between those bushes?

Enjoy life while you can little Steggie!

Have some more greens.
