    Round #165 Zombie Dinosaur

    Topic:
    Zombie Dinosaur

    Pretty self explanatory this week. Using known dinosaurs as a reference, create a new dinosaur never seen before and then zombify it. Make sense? Lot's of creature design relies heavily on inspiration from the prehistoric age. I want you to go on the Google and really do some good image searching for different dinosaurs. Use existing dinosaurs as your springboard, design an all new dinosaur and then give it the appearance of being undead, animated dead, necrotic flesh, exposed bone, etc. Simple.


    Deadline:
    Thursday January 21th, 2010.

    It's Been Awhile

    Awesome topic, I'm not sure if I'll get a chance to finish something but I'm gonna try to get back into the game with this one. And I love dinosaurs.

    Here are a few quick brainstorm sketches although I'm a bit worried they look too much like real dinosaurs. I tried to mix and match some species after flipping through one of my dinosaur books but I dunno. Maybe I'll sit down for a Jurassic Park marathon and then try doing another brainstorm.

    So far I really like the head on the big blue one.

    I also really like the head on the blue one!
    They all have things that I like.
    The eyes on the grey/green one are great, and the spikes on the red one!
    I look forward to seeing your finished piece.

    Golden serpent, those look awesome, I especially like the one in the upper right... I don't think you should worry about them looking too much like real species, as said upper-right is the only one running the risk of that, and I assure you, a paleontologist would point out hundreds of errors in bone markings, proportions, etc... that distinguish it from any known species. A professor of mine who had worked in paleo-reconstruction told me that the slightest variation in the structure of a single bone would result in the naming of a new species.
    On a personal note, I liked the big blue one more before I scrolled down and saw it was bipedal. I agree the head is very awesome. reminds me of a styracosaurus combined with a therapod and a horned lizard!

    Micheal - do pterosaurs count, even though they were not technically dinosaurs? What about prehistoric marine reptiles, such as plesiosaurs? Prehistoric crocodiles and giant salamanders? What about outdated models from the 1800s of how scientists used to think dinos looked?
    Oh, and what about therapsids, such as dimetradon, and other proto-dinosaurs?
    Archeaopterix?

    the upper right one with the bare bone skull looks really good, golden serpent. perhaps try to evolve that one further since at this point it still looks like a carnivor with the claw of a velociraptor or the other fish-eating dinosaur i cannot remember the name of
    still it looks really cool and dynamic

    Ok, this is a must. And on the plus side for me I got a Paleontologic museum close to me! If you guys got one close to you aswell, then go there and do studies, I know I will.

    The trick to making a new kind of dinosaur is a mix of form and function. Ceratopsians have wonderful HEADS, and you can do just about anything with them. I also took note of the Amargasaurus, and saw that those spines on its back could easily be placed on a Suchimimus!
