Greetings, the first collectible figure from the Mesozoic Life project is currently in development. Specifically, we have chosen our Spinosaurus agyptiacus to be the first of our exclusive collectible figures.
DETAILS AND SPECIFIC DATA ON THE FIGURES
In order to know the prices and measurements of the two scales of our figures, you just have to click on one of the images to access all the data.
Below you can see various images of the final painting of the two scales that will have this Spinosaurus figure and that were made by Cheung Chung Tat.
OUR SPINOSAURUS DESIGN
The story of our Spinosaurus began in 2019 when we commissioned illustrator Raul Ramos to design our adult male Spinosaurus from Mesozoic Life: The New Series.
To do this, our scientific advisers provided Raul with references to wading birds such as Agamia agamio and Egretta tricolor, as well as references to animals that had a similar ecological niche with Spinosaurus such as crocodiles, for example.

Originally our Spinosaurus was going to have a mainly quadruped locomotion, that is to say that it would move on the ground mainly with its four legs and could occasionally get up on its hind legs momentarily. But after the recommendations of the paleontologist Roberto Diaz Sibaja, he switched to bipedal locomotion.

A possible female variant of the name Cleopatra was also made

This was the first official product of our Spinosaurus and we personally appreciate it within the team. We remind you that this Poster can be obtained in three different sizes in the EXCLUSIVE PRINTS section of this website.
REALIZATION OF THE 3D MODEL
After a few weeks, the sculptor and creator of 3D characters Jacob Baardse began to sculpt the 3D model in the Zbrush program and being advised in detail by Roberto Diaz Sibaja, Jake managed to achieve this was the result:
THE NEWS PALEONTOLOGICAL DISCOVERIES ON THE SPINOSAURUS SPECIES IN 2020
In 2020 new fossil finds related to the Spinosaurus were made and therefore we decided to make a change in appearance to our Ramses design and 3D model to adapt them to this new vision of the animal, showing it as a creature much more adapted to the aquatic environment of a way never seen before.
2D and 3D Designs by Raul Ramos and Jacob Baardse (2020)
The main changes were made based on the design of the animal's tail. Since now the Spinosaurus would have a flatter and paddle-shaped tail that would presumably serve for a more efficient movement through the water, although this is still a highly debated topic in the scientific community.

Once the 3D model had been made, the 3D Modeler and animator Max Bellomio prepared the model to be manipulated in different programs such as Blender or Maya and therefore multiple renders and 3D animations have been made by various users. Here below you have several examples of this:

Finally, we show you a good example of the audiovisual potential of Mesozoic Life: The New Series with this realistic Sequence that is a combination of the work of Julian Johson Mortimer (Animation and rendering) and Gastón Barthelemy (Soundtrack and sound effects)
