Re: The Scourge of Tsundra

My input is:


Make it look like that picture you provided of what it is supposed to look like.

Chao is right, it looks like a fatter version of your velociraptor.

Another attempt. Here's hoping it looks decent.

It is a double-post, but I'm testing out shading on the necromancers and I tried to grey out the dinosaurs a little.

Re: The Scourge of Tsundra

The necromancers look great. The big dinosaur, however, looks off-balance. Move the legs up a little, and maybe shorten the tail a bit to make up for it, though I'm not really a dinosaur expert. The velociraptor looks generally good, but it's legs are very straight, compared to your reference. Make it look more velociraptor-like, I guess.

Re: The Scourge of Tsundra

Now that I see it, the larger one (whatever it is) looked better before. Although the velociraptor looks excellent now, I doubt anymore work is needed on it.

Re: The Scourge of Tsundra

It still looks too much like a resized version of the raptor with bits moved around.
The head still isn't the same shape as your reference and the tops of the legs need to be thicker (and have more than a single line to contrast them from the body)

Hopefully it looks better than it did before. Should I change the coloration of the allosaurus more?

Re: The Scourge of Tsundra

So far it's good, in my opinion. Certain simulations show allosaurus being a slight orange, so maybe a dark shade of such a colour can be used to due scale rot.

If your plan of attack is going to plan, you're walking into an ambush.

Re: The Scourge of Tsundra

I'd say make the tail and legs longer. Also you could probably change the color to not green and up the contrast a little more.

Re: The Scourge of Tsundra

Try changing the color to blue like in the reference, then it would look more distinguishable from the other one.

Re: The Scourge of Tsundra

I'm not actually sure now.

I'd actually like to use albertosaurus instead of allosaurus, but I'm not really sure which one is cooler.

Which is cooler, guys?

Go with albertosaurus.  It has albert in the name.

Re: The Scourge of Tsundra

He looks like he is on his toes leaning forward. The head looks a little strange to me, but that's probably just cause dinosaurs had strange heads.

Re: The Scourge of Tsundra

Your mian problem seems to lie with your dinosaurs having little to hold them upright/prevent them from falling over.

[Image: d5cc0152e9.png]
This image isn't exactly the most anatomically correct or realistic (If you couldn't tell from the bow tie, bowler hat and ginormous cigarette) thing I've ever drawn but it serves the purpose well enough. Green represents the center of mass on the raptor, blue the pull of gravity and the red crosshatching concentration of mass/weight.

As you can see, the main bulk of the weight lies in the hindquarters, mainly in the thighs and tail area. Pretty much all bipedal dinosaurs had tails and massive hind legs, why you may ask? It's because the weight from those areas act as a counterweight from the front portion of the body, since the back portion weights more than the front portion common sense and the harsh effect pf gravity demands that the body is pulled down harder at the hind area. As a result, the dinosaur can remain upright without growing another pair of legs, it also serves a great way of gaining speed when running, just lean forward and your body mass takes care of the rest.

The problem with your larger dinosaur is that he will fall over head first because the legs are positioned too far back, for the counter weight to work it needs the thighs to be tilted nearly 300 degrees about this sort of angle: \

Further more, he's tip-toeing on his feet, that only happens when running as your ref image will tell you. The feet are larger than that.

"Dinosaurs" being plural so I should fix the raptors, too?

Re: The Scourge of Tsundra

The raptors are much better, probably due to their legs further apart relative to size, which in that perspective puts the legs on the center of gravity.

Worth a try after you've done the big dino, though.

Re: The Scourge of Tsundra

The raptors are pretty much alright, besides the thighs that could use the \ sort of angle, look at your ref! Most the of that load of text was directed at your larger dinosaur.

The big dino looks off because it seems to be a larger version of the raptors.

Dunnow what I can do about that albert looks like a raptor problem, but here's a try at the "\" problem.
