This forum is the official fan-run community hub and fansite for David Silva's Beasts of the Mesozoic figure line, based around the appreciation, display, and customization of BoTM figures as well as other dinosaur-themed models.
A place for CK to dump her non-BOTM ideas in one place so that she knows where they are when she has a chance to actually act on them
Sci-fi/fantasy diorama -> The Arcane Well
A small diorama following the sci-fi/fantasy/space-y theme of the Galaxy Raptor; concept ideas include a built up bank with rocks leading down to a pool painted magenta + purple - ie. the 'Arcane' Well - with shiny rocks and crystals scattered around. Main ground will be black/blue/silver with blue and purple washes, and purple moss for accents.
Concept is heavily inspired by these videos:
UPDATE: 15/3/18 - Concept Sketch
Spinosaurus family repaint -> African Wild Dog/African Painted dog
A repaint of the CollectA spinosaurus walking and swimming models as well as PNSO Age of Dinosaurs Toys Spinosaurus baby, painted in the color scheme of an African Wild Dog/African painted dog.
Allosaurus -> 'Broken Jaw' repaint
A self-indulgent repaint of an allosaurus in the image of Dinosaur Revolution's allosaurus 'Broken Jaw', from episode 2: 'The Watering Hole'. While I haven't decided which figure I will repaint just yet, I will likely go with Papo's Allosaurus.
A quick and crappy concept sketch of my Arcane Well diorama:
And I'm very excited because I'll hopefully be picking up some clay, silicone, and casting material this weekend in order to teach myself how to make model dinosaurs and casts of them using two-part molds.
pinkgothic: My own avatar image keeps confusing me. I keep thinking "it must be a dinosaur face" just because it's the Beasts of the Mesozoic forum, and apparently the shape is just weird enough that my brain thinks this is plausible, but nope. Bamboozled myself.

pinkgothic: Well, obviously I think so, too, otherwise I wouldn't be using it. XD Just amused at how easily I'm confused. By myself, no less.

pinkgothic: Also! Since this community is fairly low-traffic, do you think it might be worth directing people to the notifications settings in their profile, so they can get emails when something changes?

pinkgothic: I've set almost all notifications to "spam my inbox, please!" and don't regret it yet.
