    This is a spitting dinosaur similar to the dilophosaur in Jurassic Park
    It is my third dinosaur unit.

    I just started work on it so there isn't much to it yet

    Cool looking head anyway :) Could you maybe round off the frill... maybe curved more like a C than an E shape... just a suggestion.

    it is a bit brightly colored. What would you suggest?
    Maybe only two colors? and different shades?

    Yeah but how does it look smaller. or actual size? I think the colors won't stand out quite so much once it's seen actual size...

    Pesoloco, I must say that you are doing a grand job, and that when you finish, I will be sure to download this unit (It would be a great 'Barbarian' to go with the GIant Squid). Also, thank you for making this, the Dilophosaurus is my favorite of the Dinosaurs.

    Thanks for the compliments. Work on your fav. dino is continuing. He is developing quite nicely now. I will post an updated preview ASAP. I saw the Giant Squid unit too (very nice graphics) and thought it would be good with the dino mod.
    Do you know who made it? We would need to ask permission to use it.
    I like your idea for using it as a barbarian unit. I think it would make a good archer replacement too.

    Actually the squid was my second unit... I look back at it now and see all the things I could do better, but I have too many other things happening to go back :) You don't need my direct permission since it's kind of implied by my posting it on these boards. As long as you give credit go right ahead :) I like the idea of a dinosaur mod and if I ever get good enough at organic shapes maybe I'll try a dinosaur or two...

    Philippe,
    Is that the color for the body or frill?
    The body would look good kaki color, but what about the frill?
    do you think I should cut down on the colors?
    I will try to find a Jurassic Park picture online and maybe go off that.

    here is a preview of the new colors.
    how do they look?

    once I get the colors down I will add the feet and hands, then do the animating!!! I am really excited about this one!!!
