Yet another dino for you all. I really need to finish something in another genre. Here's my recently completed 1/20 scale Kaiyodo Anchiceratops that I purchased off Ebay a year or so ago. Airbrushed and dry-brushed with reddish browns with some grays thrown in. Would like to hear what you think works (or doesn't). :)

Hey Doc Brad-
I think your color choices really work well. The great thing about modeling dinosaurs is no one has actually ever seen one, therefore a lot of artistic license can be taken with the colors. Your colors appear to mimic modern similar animals and consequently give it the look of a real living creature. Well done!
:thumbsup:

Thanks guys! I've got to get a better set-up for taking pictures, though. Too much glare in some of them. Hate to think what it would be like if the dino didn't have a flat coat on it!

Very nice! I have trouble coming up with natural-looking dino paint jobs.

Some plants came from a pet store, and the ferns from a larger plastic fern from Michael's. The kit itself didn't come with a base - I don't think any in that series did from what I've seen so far.

Amazing paint job. I was going to say it looks like something done by a professional, but that looks better than things you see in a museum.

Dr. Brad, simply an outstanding job. The dinosaur would be jealous! As has already been stated, who knows what color the dinosaurs actually were but that certainly looks realistic. And your custom base fits it perfectly.
