Please share all your amazing dinosaurs in this thread!

Here's one of my personal favorites!

Wow! Isn't that one cool dino? He certainly is a sight for dino-sore eyes!

How did you get all those weird gaps on the main body? It does a really good job of creating a neat lighting effect, but on mine it's all just the same, and it looks really flat.

Otherwise, I would suggest using different colors for limbs that are closer to the background, that way they appear to be shaded differently. Either way, this is looking really good so far, and I hope you will improve as time goes by! Well, I mean, I don't mean to say it like this isn't an improvement already, I just mean that you always improve after your first one no matter how good you do, so it can only get better from here! =) =) =) I definitely like the horizontal stripes for the mouth, it offsets the vertical stripes of the main body, but see, you do have that tooth as the same color, so already there is a smallllll thing that could be improved upon. But don't worry, it's just a small thing, it's good, I like it!

The gaps on the body are, in fact, a HYPER ADVANCED dinosaur coloring technique. You have to color it one color and then color on top of THAT color with the patterned colors. It takes a long time to master the art of mixing colors like that so that is why I decided to make that dinosaur my #1 dino of the day!

I am always looking to improve upon my colored dinosaurs, and I hope I can learn a lot from everybody sharing their dinosaurs and techniques!

I think the rich presence script should mention which type of dinosaur you are coloring!

I have taken your suggestion and edited the RPS accordingly.

Here is mine, I coloured her with all the colours and she's beautiful.

That's so colorful and refined, using palettes the lesser skilled can't even perceive. You've truly reached a new height in dinosaur coloring this day.

And the musical score was composed by Tommy Tallarico of Earthworm Jim and Wild 9 Fame. What an artist to have the privilege to listen to while selecting a dinosaur to render the color to a such a fine palette the designers picked for us.

Good set. Reduced to 50 points.

I'm glad I was asked before you did that. Top dino-props.

put it back if you want. The change seems appropriate to me.
