This is a study attempting to achieve as accurate a sculpture as possible of an Allosaurus dinosaur. I started by making the skeleton and then fleshed it out with the assistance of Paleontologist Jack Horner.
An Allosaurus is a dinosaur that was similar to the t-rex but was about one third the size had much longer limbs than the t-rex and had a bony crest on top of its head. The colors of the painted sculpture are based upon some of the pigments on one specimen as per Paleontologist Jack Horner.
