Feathered Beast Wars Dinobot 3D Model
Seen here in motion: www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2o9I-…

I'll copy the description from there:
Dinobot had one of the most cheatsy and blatantly unfeasible transformations in Beast Wars, and I wanted to see if it can be updated, along with modernizing his old-ass Jurassic Park-inspired dinosaur mode. It turned out to be way too tricky, and I left this model unfinished for about 4 years, but now I thought I'd try my hand at it again.
The feathers were the first major hurdle. I can't do hair simulation, and the feathers kept clipping through each other if I modeled them separately, so I just used the old-fashioned method of painting feather textures on the body and doing the rest via planes and feather textures with transparent outlines. The end effect isn't too realistic, but at least it's functional.
The transformation is of course still full of cheats, but at least now all the dinosaur parts have somewhere to go. The beast mode is its own model with its own armature, and the robot mode is controlled by three other rigs within a separate armature (segmented beast, segmented robot, full robot), containing a total of 422 animation bones, plus there's an extra armature performing other functions that didn't fit into the others, bringing up the total number of bones to 537.
The robot mode is barely workable and only looks decent from a few angles. Structurally, it's hollow, frail and parts of it are just floating attached to nothing. It's messy, fiddly and trying to animate it makes your head turn inside out as well, which is why I guess none of the actual Transformers shows use models like this for their animation. But at least I can say I did it, sort of.

Transformers, Beast Wars and Dinobot belong to Hasbro.
The raptor's proportions were based on skeletal drawings by ScottHartman (at least I think, it was a long time ago), and tweaked to accommodate the inner robot bits.

Zilla vs. Gorosaurus Thumbnails
The original (top) and the modified, more obnoxiously eye-catching (bottom) thumbnail for the following YouTube animation: www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGAwOz… Some of you may recognize the inspiration behind the composition, which is none other than one of the most famous dinosaur paintings of all time, Leaping Laelaps by the great Charles R. Knight, from 1896.

The original image was fully rendered in Blender, but I used a more unorthodox method for the updated version. That one was actually made in the video editing software Sony Vegas, with all the extra effects being placed on separate layers and rendered as a screenshot.

[B-Day Request] Godzillas '14-'16-'17
Groupshot requested by balint2002 for his recent birthday (hope you had a good one!).

It's meant to evoke this piece by an artist whose works I recognize and admire but whose name I don't know: i.pinimg.com/564x/34/e4/65/34e…

The models used in the image belong to their respective owners and creators, none are my own work.

Zilla Family Groupshot
My old Zilla 3D model, originally made in 2015, looks a little quaint next to its more recent and more elaborately modeled and textured relatives, a regular unmutated marine iguana and a Baby Zilla. But they still all look nice together.

All three were modeled, textured, rigged and rendered in Blender.

Three Godzilla Films
This image serves as a sort of "frontispiece" for a lengthy write-up I made about Godzilla films in my country, which can be read in this journal entry:
www.deviantart.com/vrahno/jour…
And in this Google Doc:
docs.google.com/document/d/1OP…

The three movies are of course Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla, Godzilla 1998 and Godzilla 2014, the only ones to have ever been released in my native language. If anyone cares about film history or interesting obscure monster movie trivia, check the above links for an in-depth look at these three productions and the reactions they have enticed from audiences and critics, and to get a different perspective on the franchise that breaks away from the Western Godzilla fanbase's echo-chamber. If you're not interested in that, hope you still like this picture.

Models and rendering were done in Blender. I left out the MUTOs because, eh, they would have taken too long to model.

here is something to think about: could the skakdi who went mad after annona stole their dreams brought to life IRNAKK when the golden skinned being brought their wishes into reality?

So, I'm one of those people who WAY overthinks things and has a tendency to see connections where their are none, but I've come across a Bionicle theory which make everything more... interesting. 

So basically, here's my theory: Teridax has a soft spot for matoran. and dislikes killing altogether. 

now that may sound crazy, but there is proof:

1. Teridax, for the record, has never killed a matoran directly, and only indirectly when it meant saving the lives of more (the archives massacre ended the metru nui civil war). 

2. Teridax could have killed Vakama immediately and took the vahi at the cliffs in LOMN, but instead offered him a position in the brotherhood, same deal with takua in the onu-wahi in MOL.

3. The people who Teridax usually attacks or kills have committed horrible crimes against the matoran, such as Nidhiki and Krekka, (The former betrayed his trust to the matoran while the latter probably eats them), Gorast (who murdered them frequently during her stint in the tren krom peninsula) Vamprah (who hunted them for sport) Mutran and Chirox (who experimented upon them)  the Barraki (who, with out a doubt were cruel to them) and Karzahni (need I say More?).

4. There are many times when Teridax could have simply killed a whole bunch of matoran and gotten the same results as his 'plan'. but he didn't. 


Basically, I'm not saying he wasn't an evil mastermind with a massive ego who wanted to take over the universe, I'm saying he was an evil mastermind who wanted to take over the universe with as few casualties as possible.

After all, in his mind he is true the great spirit, and the great spirit must be benevolent to matoran.

Sounds like it mostly makes sense, after all it's the Matoran who keep the big robot functioning, they're essential biological components unlike most other races. This theory also chimes with one of Makuta's original (but sadly abandoned and never fully explored) characterization that he's not fully evil and he has good intentions, but he uses the wrong means to further his goals. He sounded reluctant to release the Rahkshi in MoL and offered a deal to Takua, and only released the rest of the Rahkshi when Takua refused him.
Though given all the inconsistencies in the lore, I somehow doubt the writers thought too deeply about this. There's the whole deal with the Po-Koro plague for example, which would probably have lead to a lot of dead Matoran, and MNOG also mentions that many men have falled in the battle against the Rahi -- granted, this bit was declared non-canon by Greg later on. And lets not forget, he literally tells the Toa to perish and accept their doom at the end of the second film, then tries to kill Vakama. Though he only did that as a last resort, so that lends merit to your observation.

from what I understand the po- koro plague was supposed to infect them similar to infecting a mask. 

again, I'm not saying he wasn't WILLING to kill matoran, but would prefer to avoid it as much as possible. 

compare that to how guys like pridak or icarax would have done things and you see my point.
