Here i would like to share with you a full walkthrough of how i am going to make a large scale Saurus lord on Carnosaur for golden daemon 2011.
So far all i have are some concet sketches and the begginings of an armature.
Sculpting supplies ae on their way though and as soon as they arrive work will begin! For now here is the first concept sketch.

I like the idea. Should be a pretty sweet design.

Early stages - carnosaur

Sorry i have no pics of the earliest stages, altho if you want to know how i got this far follow the link i sent papasmurf. :) So far i'm INCREDIBLY pleased with the carnosaur! All is going very well. I will use what little remains of my milli put to fill out his thighs, and from then on i will be sculpting in kneadatite! I have decided that i will sculpt legs up to the waist as a part of this model, so that i can then make legs on foot. I can then display kroq on foot or on his carnosaur :) Reason being for this, is that Im unsure if i can enter a large scale mounted model in golden deamon. So will do wo alternatives! Comments and chritisism welcome as always! Let me know what you all think :victory:

Amazing work so far, it really has taken shape fast.

Any chance of a model standing near it in future photos, it would give an idea of scale.

Like what you have done so far, you really are talented

Thankyou very much :). I love using milliput, its so much easier to work with than greenstuff. I think thats why its progressed so quickly. From now on unfortunately work will happen far slower, as ill be doing all the detail (scales, so many scales!! :shok: ). Glad you like what you see so far! Ill include a model in the next shot to show size. Until then, the base is 100mmx100mm. Hes around 4 times the size of the regular carnosaur. :victory:

Just had an idea, been looking on lustria online and suddenly thought: Thunderlizards and arcanodon. If i was to make either of these titanic beasts, wich should i do? What dinosaurs should they be based on? Would someone even know a rule set for friendly games? Just a thought. If you lot like it, it could be another dinosaur in the pipeline!

Saurus armature, carnosaur skull.

Used up all my milliput now :( So having to wait for the kneadatite to arrive. The way i'v used the milliput has come out ather well if i'm honest, as i find kneadatite and milliput can sometimes be a pain to get them to stick on small details. Luckily, the areas on the carnosaur that have not yet been fully filled out are areas that have more detail (back, top thighs, top tail, feet, lower legs, head and front arms) so will work better for me if they are built up with a layer of greenstuff and then have the detail layered on.
carnosaurs skull is almost done here, will do the rest in kneadatite for the above reasons. Saurus and victim armatures are done. The victim is what was going to be a sculpture of myself that i started ages ago, but will now be a marauder, that is frantically reaching for his axe. but is as good as dead. Unarmed and being trodden on.
Empire state trooper used for scale.
C&C welcome as always :victory:

Green stuff has arrived!

Last friday my green stuff arrived, but i'v been very busy this weekend so had'nt done any work with it. This week i got started on the tail and head of the carnosaur, as well as the shield and spear. I'm incredibly proud of how the teeth are going so far, as i thought they would be a real problem. C&C welcome as always.

Really nice work, you are gifted in the arts of sculpting

Have you considered showing some of your work off to a studio? maybe FW, I think they may be interested in your talents.

To work for forgeworld would be an absolute dream come true! Especially on their new warhammer forge project. Only thing is i dont know how i would go about contacting them and for them to take me seriously. Will have a look on their site see what i can find.
And Vaz, as a matter of fact the head is infact based on sailosaurus and baryonyx. The body is based on Trex, but i wanted a more crocodilian shaped head. So well spotted! And thankyou for your comments again.
