Tell me whatcha think.
Impressive. And how its fits together, very creative.
Damn that's neet
He reminds me of B'boom and Striker
Looks pretty cool, and an awesome idea!
Wow, especially loving his beast mode.
wow dude, that right there, is talent
The robot mode is kickass, but the amargasaur, I'm sorry to say, looks really awful. Amargasaurus is a good choice for a beast mode because it was such a small sauropod, but the anatomy you've given it is confusing and the head looks depressingly generic, almost lizard-like, which is a shame because these were amazing-looking animals and not the least bit like lizards. I cannot stress it enough to artists who draw dinosaurs: USE MODERN REFERENCES. It annoys me to no end because I draw dinosaurs for a living and they seem to be the only subject people don't bother to use references to draw and it's SO SIMPLE to find them.
Please don't take my tirade personally, but keep it in mind. If you did use references, I think they might be out of date by about five decades.
Note the thick neck muscles. Dinosaur skin only hung down slightly and was actually very tout against the musculature. Also note, the forelimbs are very close to the center on the front of the ribcage and its legs were not nearly as bulky as the ones in your rendition.
The head is triangular, not bulgy, and the nostrils rest at the top of the head, not at the tip of the snout. Its teeth would have stuck out, or its mouth would meet at a tip, depending on whether it had lips or not, but there wouldn't have been a bulge. I would personally define the shape of the head more to personalize him a bit.
Also, as a side note, the jury's still out on whether amargasaurus had a fin down its neck or spikes, but most paleo-artists don't give them a fin.
If I came off harsh, I apologize, but portraying dinosaurs correctly is something I feel strongly about. I'd actually like to draw this character and demonstrate the points I've mentioned in the illustration, if that's all right.
Brilliant design! I would of loved to seen something like this as an actual figure.
Didn't get to comment about this earlier, but I love it!
Great to see some of the "Non-traditional" Dinos for once. Hope to see more man!
