RMCAD Grad Show 1st Piece

For my summer 2010 Graduation Show at Rocky Mountain College of Art+Design, I’m focusing on theropod carnivores from the cretaceous period.  For my first piece out of three, I chose to sculpt deinonychus, the misnamed dinosaur that everyone refers to as velociraptors because of the movie “Jurassic Park.”  I know, my childhood was crushed too, like when I found out about Santa Claus.  So to appease my inner child, I decided to do the typical depiction on dinosaurs – AN EPIC BATTLE OF SURVIVAL!! Or….. they could just be playing.   Just like when we were kids with our toy dinosaurs.  Don’t deny it.
