Hello, first post for me!
I am very fascinated by dinosaurs, who isn't? So when I this summer joined a sculpting course and we got to do one free model I knew what I wanted to do. I did this sculpt in 4 weeks. I am very pleased with the results but the ground is not entirely finished as I had to rush it done in the end off the course, I will work more on that. I used chavant medium for this one.
Here are some pics of the model in the current state:
Crits and comments are welcome!
Fantastic! Beautiful sculpt and composition/concept.
You oughta' mold him up and sell kits. Never seen a T-Rex in that pose.
that is freakin perfect
i guess the gorund could use more work like you said, but the skin texture, the teeth and nails, the pose, everything, amazing
it looks like the sculpts they did for jurassic park
Nice job. It's good to see the arms in the correct orientation. I'm not sure about the extreme length of the stride, do you have an anatomical basis for it or did it just look cool?

Great job! I'm digging the direction of the base as well.

That's great. Ever since I was a kid I too was fascinated by dinosaurs and T-Rex of course has always been my favorite. Good job!
love the pose as Jurassic park
what did you use for eyes?
i like the idea of the vibration on the ground after the step
I made a skeletal rig in maya using skeletondrawings as reference. I posed that and made the view drawings from the renders. I know that the stance is pretty extreme, but I think it is believeable Originally he was supposed to stand on a prey of some sort :p but I couldnt do it because time ran out... So now he has been drinking from a waterhole and is standing on a big rock for support.
Very Very impressive.
Please reveal some details about how you did the skin-texture in the head-area.
The detail and texture is very very cool. The pose and proportions are very nicely done. I'd love to see more.
Here are some pics from beginning to end.

I made orthographic renders from which I made plane views in photoshop
And here follows some progress pics
I wanted eyes with a shine to them to get this thing alive! So I went to the toystore and bought a teddybear with some nice shiny black eyes and... hmm, slaughtered him I think it was for a good cause...
Here you can see the tool I made to make the lumps and bumps. I made two of these, one small and one a bit larger (the larger one shown). They concist of a steel wire with a very thin piece of sheet metal wrapped around it into a small tube with thin walls. I used a alcohol torch, lighter fluid and a very fine brush to blend the bumps to the skin.
Excellent work, sir. What is this chavant clay? Is it like water clay?
