:Tissoplastic spinosaurus: by Tapwing :Tissoplastic spinosaurus: by Tapwing

'It can saunter on land and camouflage like any other tisso, but its true talent shines in water. Compact, hair-triggered, aquatic sentient knife of a fisher.  It's become a powerful specialist swimmer, being able to utilize a divided spine for sail control enabling it to switch between speed and stability. 
Every aspect of its jaws are needle-like, from teeth to chin, it will lunge, swipe or slap to take targets down. So unless you're armoured or big enough, enter waters at you're own risk. '

This is the last tissoplastic strain I'll be designing. at least till the reformatted one gets an official reveale.
While that's up in the air though I have another isle themed project on it's way. 
Teaser coming soon.

Them being undeveloped creatures has been a big part of the fun/chalange, trying to come up with designs off a rough concept. Glad you’re enjoying them.

   If I was a worth while mod creator, I would totally make all of your concepts into Ark modded dinos. With permission of course. I could see this one being an awesome water specialized Spino with faster swim speed and super sharp turn radius in the water. That sail would fold back when mobile and fan out for those turns.

   Truly professional grade work from this and your gallery as a whole. Just thinking about how these designs would look in a game spikes my imagination. :D

An nice design for sure, I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it yet in how it fits into the 'isle's world.
right now it kind of comes off as just another hyper rex.

Nice design. A true river monster. I'm assuming it uses those sharp jaw to spear prey and enemies like a marlin or swordfish?

Also, what's this about a reformat of the tisso's? What does that mean?
Reply
:icontapwing:
Tapwing Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
That was the idea behind the design, though I imagin it'd slash prey more than stab it with those jaws. 

Hard to say atm about the tissos. All that's been heard is that they're getting an overhaul but we don't know how much is being changed yet.

Ironic that this design is more accurate to reality than the non-Tissoplastic Spinosaurus above.

Well a couple of years ago scientists got their hands on some new information about Spinosaurus.
Forcing them to reimagine some of its details. I don't remember everything but they ended up concluding
that Spinosaurus, unlike any other carnivorous dinosaur, walked on its front and hind legs. Due to the fact
its hinds legs were only just bigger then it front legs. So the "normal" Spinosaurus we see on the top right
is a little outdated.

But wasn't it also decided that since it could not pronate its hands, then its ability to walk on all fours would be extremely impeded? I do believe it was also concluded that its knuckles were not strong enough to support its weight either.

:iconthereferenceking:
TheReferenceKing Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Hmm...
When did they conclude that?
Reply
:iconthemonkeysunkle:
TheMonkeysUnkle Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2017
They concluded it because it's only logical. I know about the discoveries, and the most popular idea was that it was still bipedal, but was less agile due to its short legs. Large animals like these wouldn't be able to support their weight well on all fours, unless the forelegs were designed for it. Spinosaurus, like (to my knowledge) every other theropod, could not pronate its hands, and could therefore not possibly have actually walked on them.

Aside from all that, it's far from universally accepted that the current representation is accurate, and not something like a hybrid. The new idea has a lot of evidence both for and against it, but the news outlets preaching that this the irrevocable and completely proven truth is sensationalism and nothing more.

A guy showed that he walked in two, but his hands was very close to the ground...
His tail had much skin and he probably keep the neck retracted, like a pelican, maybe that should keep him in two legs.

The Geek Group actually did a pretty neat video on the Spinosaurus that was very informative. Here's the link. youtu.be/6oCqSqY7FiI
