    Some cool looking stuff in here, can't wait to see the final entries!

    Since the idea this week is to design a new dinosaur and then zombify it, I had the most trouble designing an original dinosaur that did not look like it was based on one that really existed. Every time it looked like either a the body of a raptor or a Trex with some weird new head shape pasted on top of it, making it feel bland and boring... So I decided to design my dinosaur on the body of a horse/lion to give it that original edge. Now the tricky part is to make it look like a dinosaur and not some lizard from planet shit somewhere seventeen million lightyears from here.

    Hoping I'm a bit on the right track with this one...the zombification will be applied after finishing it in it's current form because I want to keep the design of this one before the gore and stuff...

    GoldenSerpent: That is coming out wonderfully! I love the holes in his neck! Also, if you're still worried about him appearing top-heavy, thickening the tail a tad might also help balance him out. (:

    levin: That looks awesome too! You've done an amazing job on making your dino look like he's still decaying.

    Phade01: Gosh, that face down in the corner looks so EVIL! I love it!

    Excellent stuff everyone! Some people look as though they've based the dinosaur designs more on modern creatures, with reptilian skin...nothing wrong with this,but I believe the assignment is to create a new dinosaur based on anatomy of existing Dinos.

    BRAIT- for instance,that is very horse like bone structure.

    HGCALLIARD-I know,the head is a bit crocodilian,but for the record,I asked Michael if prehistoric crocodiles counted and he said yes. For the record,so do marine reptiles,pterosaurs and giant salamanders. Therapsids, such as dimetradon, also count, and I therefore assume that other pelicasaurs do as well... besides,I am somewhat of the notion that Spinosaurs had such a crocodilian head because of a direct lineage... don't quote me on that one though



    GoldenSerpent- Amazing! I think thickening the tail towards the center might give it a perfect sinse of balance... it already looks close to being well-balanced,but I think that forward-lean would only be that exaggerated during a running pose,unless it had some extra tail-weight for ballast.

    Levin - nice loose render,looks like you have the rot and viscera under control.I'd look at some reference for the head and neck and try to make more of an 's' curve with them. It looks a little "kangaroo based",which is sort of an out-moded way of looking at dinosaur posture - it was still prevailent when we were kids,and you stillsee toys constructed this way,but it is technically no different than the way people in the 1800s based their views on dino posture on that of lizards. That is a little nit-picky though, as I say, you still see dinos with kangaroo-like posture in some older books and toys,and no one can empirically prove that they were composed more like birds...

    Phade- very nice, just note the wingspan would be much wider.

    Arbin - simply awesome! If I could find one fault it's that this is a zombie dromeosaur (raptor) of some type, though not looking as though you've invented a new type. It looks like the "raptors" (deinonychus) from Jurassic park,in zombie form, with some back-spikes. (side note- the skulls of the raptors in JP1and JP2 were incorrect, further scientific discovery caused them to modify the design for JP3).

    Alien Ape- the lower study is just sick!can't wait to see what you come up with...

    Thanks! Yeah the concept is pretty basic as I thought we should just create an existing dino with zombie aspects.

    Well, funnier for me when I start editing it! ^__^

    Harmageddon: Itís a bit hard to tell since youíre still working on your picture, but right now the dinosaurs themselves donít seem to be the main focal point. My eye goes immediately to the cave entrance and only after that do I notice the two dinos on the ground. If you added maybe a second or third of those little insect eating dinosaurs jumping around the carcass the dinosaurs would catch the viewers eye first.

    Levin
    : Thank you very much, and no I donít mind at all

    Arbinn: Although the dinosaur design is still to much like a raptor I really like the idea of having itís lower jaw decayed off. Thereís just something very disturbing about it to me. The thought of itís upper jaws sinking into me at the same time itís more or less gumming me with itís throat just makes me squirm in my chair.

    Bralt Hannicart: I like the head and neck on your creature and you have some wonderful scales on it too. Iím a bit unsure of the body though; It reads way to horse like to me and thus not really dinosaur looking. Iíd suggest trying to give him some stocky legs like one of the large herbivorous dinosaurs.

    Spirall:
    Thank you for the suggestion, I thickened up his tail a bit in the most recent version.

    Skullbeast: In my opinion those eyestalks look a bit too insectoid for a dinosaur design.

    Paulkang91
    : haha thanks. The flesh stretched across your creatureís spines is nicely done, also I like his eye, very expressive.


    Okay so here's Big Blue in his most recent stage of creation (decomposition?) I've thickened his tail, detailed his spines, added some more decaying bits and pieces and just overall tried to make him more solid. Oh I also noticed his ribs were looking odd so I looked up a T-rex skeleton from google to reference. His rib bones were really off so I fixed them up and I think they look much better.

    I did a bit more work on the background but I'm still being sort of timid with it. If anyone has tips on rendering trees that would be greatly appreciated.

    EDIT: Okay so I was playing around with what sort of colors I'd like to have in the finished version and bah I'm having a rough time with it. Colors are one of my weak points so if you guys could give me some pointers with these two color thumbnails I whipped up that would be fantastic!

    Heh, actually I don't have really time for a COW, but since this theme is so great (I love dinosaurs), I just HAD to draw something.

    But first some comments:

    Wacky Wackowski: So far it looks amazing, I love the design of the head and also the perspective you used here.

    youpi: That's definitaly a very new and still dinosaurish design you found here.

    Phade01: Looks interesting, but maybe you can improve the head a little bit and choose maybe a more interesting perspective/pose... maybe while it's landing or something.

    GoldenSerpent: I really like your design and all the details you added here- also the dinosaur have a really scary look.

    paulkang91: Looks like an interestink start- maybe you can shorten the lower jaw a little bit (if you use this head for the final version), because it's too long in my opinion.

    hodoca: Interesting sketches.. I hope you find some time to develope them a little bit further.

    skullbeast: I have to agree, the eyes give him really a little bit something of an insect. I like the design of the body though.

    Bralt Hannicart: Looks great, but I also think you might go more for a dinosaurish anatomy here.

    Alien Ape Star: So far it looks good.

    Snow Lion: There are still some perspectivic flaws in your colored version (especially with the lower jaw), but other than that it looks good so far.

    JanJager: I like your color choice here: Especially the yellow touch for the dinosaur.

    Arbinn: Heh, I had the same idea like you: Removing the lower jaw... but I decided not doing it in the end.
    I like your design, but the body might be a little bit too bulky right now.

    levin: Looks great: Maybe you can push the leg in the background a little bit to left- Somehow it don't look correct now (not sure about that though)

    Harmageddon: Looks good so far.

    evolvingeye: I would definitaly take the one on the bottom- I really like it's head design and all the plates added here.

    hgcallard: Looks great so far.. Maybe you can play around with the lighting a little bit still? Like adding more violett lighted areas and maybe get a little bit more dark on the other side.

    Pochifux: Heh, I like your idea of adding the riders here.


    So and now comes my zombie.. I will probably still change some things, but I think it's more or less finished... right?

    Taken more of the crit into account, I'm liking where my image is going now. I think I've nearly hit the cheesey b-movie look I was going for... Any other crit more than welcome
