Going to start a Styracosaurus skull to add to my Shapeways shop products. I got a bit bored with making dinosaur skulls towards the end of last year but I’ve after wasting some time messing with other (mostly abandoned) projects I’ve got the bug again, surprised it’s took me this long.
I’ll post visual updates my progress here in parallel to threads on Blender Artists and the Dinosaur Toy Forum. Won’t be as in depth as my rex skull from last year.
Well there’s decent references online for the two main specimens. Going to base my Styracosaurus on the holotype (CMN 344). Found an online copy of Ryan, Holmes, & Russell, 2007 (linked below), a great study with loads of info including a great 3 view drawing which corrects the distortions in the fossil. I’ll also be studying photos found on the internet.
I’m going to run up my own scale drawing though. I prefer to do this because I need to learn the shape and sketching it out helps me fix the form in my head.
