Make a wish on this Fossil Friday, you’re looking at a T. rex wishbone!

Wishbones, or furculae, are extremely diverse in size and shape. For years, scientists thought the bone strengthened the body for the demands of flight. But the cast of this furcula fossil belonged to a decidedly earthbound dinosaur, Tyrannosaurus rex. Bottom line: the furcula is unconnected to the origin of flight.

Learn much more about the origins of flight in the new exhibition, Dinosaurs Among Us, now open!

My first completely rigged and animated 3d model! His name is Stan, and he’s a t.rex. Stan is a bit of a klutz but he means well.

This was really challenging, but oh so satisfying to see the end result! I can’t wait to create and animate more fluffy dinosaur/pterosaur models.

I will upload a few more videos on the weekend, incuding a 360 turnaround of his walkcycle.

GN-008GNHW/3G Seravee Gundam GNHW/3G

Featured in Gundam-00V, Seravee is a GN-H(eavy)-W(eapons) type. During the conflict between A-Laws and Celestial Being, A-Laws continuously introduced new and more formidable MS and MA units that challenged the survivability of CB’s Gundams. The demand for more powerful weapons was necessary to help Celestial Being and their Meisters maintain an edge to survive in future conflicts. An upgrade design was drafted for both Seravee and Seraphim as part of their GN-H(eavy)-W(eapons) development, GN-008GNHW/3G Seravee Gundam.


I got a new tablet and what better way to celebrate than drawing Rex in a Burger King crown

obi/rex "cross that. don’t answer that"

“You love him, don’t you?  Wouldn’t you like to have him?”  The spectral voice makes the short hair on the back of Rex’s neck stand up and he freezes in place.

“Sir?” he says quietly, gold eyes on Obi-Wan, fighting the urge to flinch as hands - he knows that touch, it’s Obi-Wan’s hands on him, but Obi-Wan is across the room, he can’t be-

The Jedi’s voice is crisp as he points to the edge of a circle on the floor, drawn out in a pattern large enough to hold both of them, “Cross that, don’t answer that.”  

The moment Rex crosses the line, everything stops.  He lets out a slow, deep breath, pulling his bucket off to run a hand through his hair.  “General, all due respect, what the kriff was that?”

Obi-Wan looks up, and with the grin that makes Rex want to kiss him, just a little bit, says, “That, Captain, was a ghost.”
