Hello, I'm working a some 3d Jurassic Park models. I post them here because it's a kind of sculpture, digital for sure but sculpture too, let me know what you think about that.
Velociraptor (without neck and head, I'm working on it)
Textured and detailed models test (just one for now):
Hope you like it. ;D
I will try to texture a gallimimus model next week, but I just have 3 pictures of the maquette Paul Mejias made for the first movie. I need this pictures in higher quality, the first and third, the second could be great enough. I don't see the details textures and I need it? somebody can help me with it?

Those are really neat scans. Good job! Regarding the Raptors leg, did you modify the kit first or make them look identical once they were on the computer? The Horizon model kit has one leg slightly raised and your scanned model has them both looking as perfect opposites (like the orginal clay sculpture).
For the raptor model I scanned the model kit parts by parts and I just duplicate one leg and I have made a symmetry to get the second.
About Paul Mejias I know his website, I get the pictures on his website but the pictures are textureless, and what I need are textured pictures. I emailed him he can't send me more pictures but we should meet on Los Angeles soon if he hasn't too much work.
If you can get your galli model picture post them when you get them back, thanks.
Here is the Gallimimus, I made it to be the most possible accurate to the Paul Mejias's model. When JP1 came in theaters, the cgi couldn't be textured like today so the galli details wasn't what they should be (i think). It is far to be perfect but no time to make it better. I have a T-rex and a Raptor waiting. ;D
A very rapid test into a pictures, I know lights are bad, it's just a very fast test. I'll post some real incrustation later (dec/jan).

I'd like to do a gate to scale with my paddock diorama, and am gathering reference. Do you have a perfect side view of your gate so I can see all the dimensions?
Also regarding the fencing, it looks to me that it slants backwards in the movie. I thought this was just the way the camera was angled at first, but I'm pretty certain it does lean back. Can you verify this?
About the Rex fence, you are right, it slants backwards. I knew it but it depends of what paddock it is. On the galli paddock it didn't slants and there are some more protections because the animals are smaller. This fence is a working base, because I don't know if I will have to do a T-Rex paddock or a Galli one for exemple. I think it was just because the head of T-Rex head is vey high.
I just checked, the dilophosaur fence is amazing, an adult could attack everybody with this little fence.
In every case I prefer to have a basic gate easy to modify to work with.
I'm trying to had fire on the door for now, tonight I will have my first test ok I think.

Another thing that puzzled me that doesn't seem consistant is the positioning of the uprights where they go into the blocks. I concluded that they must be anchored a little forward and not completely central.
The T-rex paddock fencing (as you can see from an above view when the tour vehicles first arrive) has the 'girders' anchored more towards the front of the block so that the cable can be centered (cable attached behind the girders), but the Galli fencing (Grant and kids climb over) seems to have the girders postioned more central.
I don't if the seperate fence sets really are different, or that it's the camera angles and scenes that just make it appear different?
