Here she is!

She's a Utah Raptor, slightly smaller than the original specimen found in Utah, 1992, suggests(incomplete skeleton).

This is the work of Doug, me and Matt. It took about eight months of work, whyle building the rest of the museum too. Work was poratic, so if we had sculpted non stop, we would have been done alot sooner. It took about a week to paint her.

White foam, fiberglass, apoxy sculpt, acrylic paint(airbrush and traditional brush application).

More pictures to come in scraps!!

Ah, yes. We had several books for reference that only dealt with Dinosaurs, and also a contracted scientist who we had to meet the specs of. There was alot of working with the products of other artists as reference, considering there aren't living dinosaurs to just copy from. The results of an artists work, wether in movies or in a museum, are more often than not a mismash of cross referencing things and making stuff up as far as skin texture and colors go. We looked at big lizards and horses and dogs and other finished dinosaur works, as well as fossile replicas nearest to the creature we wanted to achieve in order to reach the final product.

It was pretty cool.
