Utahraptor ostrommaysorum skeletal
This is a slight update to my previous skeletal. The wonderful Jim Kirkland informed me that the original hips I used were based off of Achillibator and that Yurgovuchia would be a much better reference point, so I knuckled down and made the change. Had to remove a few gastralia to make room for the new pubis but overall it was a relatively painless change.

Be sure to check out the Utahraptor project if you want to help unearth a massive rock full of skeletons! www.gofundme.com/utahraptor

Most of the original skeleton is based off of Scott Hartman's work.

I've been working on an educational game to help teach about dinosaurs and other prehistoric life.

lpix.org/3140697/002.png

I currently have 56 species modeled which can be seen listed at trello.com/b/OQvrXm1u/blueiron , I've got 5 more dinosaurs I'm going to be modeling in the immediate future, along with 25 species of pterosaur waiting in the wings.

I've been enjoying the modeling a lot but now I've come to the point where I ought to be focusing on finding ways to convey information to the player, which has been... less fun.

I've got a timeline made up, at this scale each meter represents 1 million years, a fun introduction to [Deep Time

Also got a family tree showing the relationships of all the species

And a height chart

Its fun to go into first person and directly compare the smallest...

...with the biggest

Finding ways to convey information visually has been an interesting challenge, but I'm still trying to work out how to provide more in-depth or focused information. When previewing builds to friends and family I'll often find myself explaining things, giving context, or providing informative anecdotes based on what they are looking at, and I don't know how to capture that learning aspect within the game its self

Going to dive back into some low poly work for a little bit, make some more progress on my game.

After that, the next three high poly models I'm going to be working on are
  • Tyrannosaurus rex skull - along with a tutorial for modeling skulls
  • Sarcosuchus imperator skull
  • Spinosaurus aegyptiacus skull

Are you going to update the raptor skeletals based on this new information about neutral poses in dinosaurs?

Looking it over, I think my Utahraptor is fine as is, but I'll try to find time to adjust my Velociraptor to be less crouched.

I love your skulls! its so hard to find dinosaur skulls that are not just in profile. Do you mind if I use your stuff as a reference? I'll credit you.
