i dont see y u carnt do same as somebody else not like you gona work together on it. i think there where 3 people doing a dragon in the mythical creature challege.

nice although i think it said a new dinosaur / modified or summat
we can make actual dinasaurs rite?
from rules and guidlines
The goal: Create a dinosaur! The catch? Create a NEW dinosaur! You can make it serious (Ultra Mega-saurus or whatever) or humerous (the Dog-a-saur! ).

aight well seems like i dont have as much time on my hands as i thought i did, so far i worked on it about 45 minutes and here is wat i have so far. and remember this is like one of my first independant (not using tutorial) projects on maya so cut some slack haha, just joking.

(i decided to make a pre existing dino then change into a fantasy one)

will add more later after i get back home

lookin alrite for 45mins work altho you have the head in a difficult place i think it will make it hard to select points etc perhaps you should try cutting it up etc in photoshop and make the face stright as you can it will help you model it
