3 hours today, plus the half-hour yesterday. This approaches what I consider professional, and would form the basis for a really cool 3D sculpt if the level-of-detail should get pushed much further. coolest of all, Darren Tanke himself has asked to use it for his profile. Still not confident whether I’ve got the likeness or not. Whatcha think?

This is so cool! I (and the Gorgosaurus) are honored to be used as subject matter for this piece of art. I have just used this updated image for my Facebook profile picture. A scupture would be amazing to see! The likeness I think is close, but will be changing as I will be undergoing LASIK eye surgery in about a month and ditching these glasses! I’m certain there will be more cool things about the Gorgosaurus once we flip the specimen over and prepare it from the other side. Thanks!

Ewwww…. I was considering eye surgery for a while. Then I went out and bought big, black glasses that cry “LOOK AT ME, I’M A PAIR OF BIG, BLACK GLASSES!”
Hiding from fate, I guess. Let me know how your OP goes. At least your profile will fit – check the post (below the fold).

An excellent likeness, IMO. And a great interpretation.
