Suchomimus tenerensis: colour

Phew...so this is an Adobe Illustrator version of the Suchomimus drawing from a few days ago. As always, I used Illustrator to trace out the outline and then use different layers to colour, shade, and add a bit of effect. The stripes took me forever to do...

But it certainly looks good! Nice color selection--it's like desert camo for a desert theropod. :-)

Thanks Zach! I've had this colour scheme in mind for a spinosaur ever since I saw a miniature diorama at the Bristol City Museum about five years ago...sadly, they don't have that there anymore - I wonder what happened to it...come to think of it, I seem to recall it being part of the hands-on section for kids so perhaps it wasn't a permanent display at all to begin with...

That is awesome dude!

I hear you on the detailing of Dino strips taking forever. I just finished a 3D Lambeosaur which took me all week (I did a post about it at http://prehistoric-insanity.blogspot.com/2008/04/3d-graphics-how-to-texture-dinosaur.html ). Loving the art on here.

Also have to say thanks for the alert to ask a biologist a little while ago. Loving that site, and so is my class. Cheers!
