I got an itch to make a retrosaur in Sculptris, and this redonkulous tail-dragger is the result. The main inspiration was this guy:

Along with old standbys of out of date reconstruction like the Marx dinosaurs  the Aurora T-Rex that was probably the inspiration for Devil Dinosaur, as well 50s-era paleoart in general.
 
My goal was to recreate a monster from pulp movies and questionably-researched dinosaur books, rather than an actual animal. A lack of feathers and the tail-dragging stance were obvious. I took my cues from Harryhausen and went with crocodillian scales, slit-pupil reptile eyes, and a lizard-y waddle under the jaw. 
 
This design is available in multiple plastic and metal print options, as well as three full color sandstone color schemes: Mean Green, Ancient Fury (inspired by Primal Rage’s Sauron) and Upstart (inspired by Beast Wars Megatron).

I thought you might have been tapping into Sauron with that one, nice!

 

Don't think you have to worry about Allosaurus having feathers, but regardless, really dig you designing this. Our older depictions of dinosaurs need to not be forgotten, just not embraced for the sake of ignorance.

Awesome. Would love to see this get the sofubi treatment in a bigger scale.

Thanks!
 
The Allosaur sculpt also came in handy as a basis for this:
