Like Jonni, I have also been working on a version of a T.Rex. When she posted hers on YouTube, I was so excited to be having a “great minds think alike” moment, that I wanted I wanted to share. (Disclaimer: I don’t not claim to have a great mind of any kind ?)
I used Jonni’s suggestion of using a cutout of the animal’s silhouette as the base for the armature. My version was done using a cutout of “Sue’s” skull, on foamboard. Then I added flesh, as it were, by using aluminum foil. His name is, Ellis, meaning: kind, benevolent. I chose to give him a colorful look, imagining that perhaps the colors attracted females. I had a lot of fun making him.
