Reimagined spino by Tapwing Reimagined spino by Tapwing
DISCLAMER-
THIS WAS DRAWN BEFOR I WAS BROUGHT ONTO THE DEV TEAM. THIS WAS MADE PURLY AS FAN ART AND NOT AN OFFICAL CONCEPT. 

Now here’s a fello I completely neglected to upload. This was first uploaded to the isle’s discord a while back and I forgot to upload it anywhere els.  
Originally this was drawn when I heard someone thought ‘the isle’ spino models scales looked boring and I thought ‘what could it look like with more pronounced features’?
Now keep in mind this is in no way an etempt to make a “realistic” spino. This was made with the the intent of “more extream scales!”.
It’s a fusion of the old aquatic spino, the hyper and the neuro. (Why the ‘M’ spine? Because shut up I like it... and the strains currently have it)   
I’ll leave it up to you whether this is a magna or not since I never decided myself.

Drawn in Procreate.
Inspired by ‘the isle’

I think I like this version! I know it probably had shorter legs as it didn't need to run as much as other carnivores in the region, but it still would've had to stand and rear up to face down the many carnivorous therapods (and predatory animals in general) that it shared the region with.

Tapwing, do you know if the devs are considering this? 
I thought i heard that they wanted to redo the spino.

Wow! This is probably my favorite depiction of spinosaurus I have seen yet. The crocodilian features fit onto spinosaurus like a glove, and I love that the sail looks very rigid and even a little armored. Certainly doesn't look frail that's for sure :)

Either it's a magna or a redesign of the spino when implemented for survival

I honestly think this should be the replacement for the Spinosaurus in general. At least something like it.

Except it's not accurate at all. Its forearms couldn't rotate like ours can and thus couldn't plant their hands on the ground, and neither wrists or their shoulders were built to bear weight.

knuckle walking would be the answer to that. It's more believable than that it can somehow support its upper body up with only the hind legs.

DOTB18 Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2018
Not really. As I said before, there's nothing about Spinosaurus' arms that are adapted  for quadrupedal walking; its fingers, wrists, elbows, shoulders and even its neck simply weren't built to take the stresses involved. It couldn't even move its shoulders independently because its collarbones had fused together into a wishbone.

Plus, recent studies have shown that its center of mass was right in front of the hips, due to hollow bones and air sacs lightening the front half as well as a heavy tail (people tend to underestimate just how beefy dinosaur tails really are), so it could balance on its hindlegs just fine.

It's too heavy to be carried by those hind legs

Did you even read what that guy just told you? The anatomy of spinosaurus would make it impossible for it to walk on all 4s

Yeah, Abelisaurids were also heavy, but some of them had really short hind limbs and extremely short arms. How did they walk?

The M spine is very realistic though... Lol. Like on fucking point.
This entire thing is quite close to what's been described in current research. 
I think the body is a little shorter and the legs longer but that's it. LOL.
Which is barely a change compared to most iterations.

Tbh you did a good job.

Even if I really need to get used to the M-sail (yes, I like the common sail more, donteatme xD ), this concept is fantastic! I totally love the crocodile-like tail!
