Deadlines!

So the real joke of my 2010 is that 90% of it occurs now!

I had the Olympics which were intense (awesome, but intense). Now I have a billion Palaeo projects, that all are due this week!


First on the block is a Spinosaur for the Prehistoric Times...

This is my start. It is just a lighting and plate test. I'm thinking of having this full grown Spino being challenged by something for its fish. Should it be more Spinosaurs? Or a Carnosaur?

I also have to get my talk (and some palaeo art to spruce it up) done for the weekend... As I present it to the Alberta Palaeontological Symposium on Sat. The guest list includes a certain Currie and Sampson... So there is no pressure or anything!!!

I'll be keeping you posted as these progress.

Oh and some sort of Saurian related winter games... I need to start posting those too!

So yeah. By the end of March I'll just be in a coma to recover from it all.

Wish me luck!

Your Spinosaur is looking good! Instead of something challenging the Spinosaur how about the big guy snatching the fish from a smaller spino it runs off? Just my two cents.

Good-looking spinosaurid! Rather than an oft-portrayed carnosaur competitor, how about Bahariasaurus or Stomatosuchus.

Both you guys- Thanks on the compliments of the overall model. I think I'm happy with him too. Having the visual imagination I do, I'm often not happy with my stuff as it doesn't match my mental picture, if you follow.

Brian- That was my exact idea if it was Spino vs. Spino. I shall tinker with such a composition, and see how it goes

Albertonykus- As much as I'd love to have a croc in the pic, that would require a lot of new (experinmental) modelling as I don't have a croc made. Sadly time is not on my side with this one, and I need to get it done in a day, and soon!

As luck would have it, alongside the Spinosaur I constructed a Carcharodontosaur...

I'm personally leaning towards a Spino vs. Spino, but might play with a Carcha version too.

What of my other suggestion, Bahariasaurus? Out of spino VS spino and spino VS carchar though, I'd probably go with the former, too.
