Medusaceratops lokii was discovered in 2010 by Michael J. Ryan, Anthony P. Russell, and Scott Hartman. It is the oldest know Chasmosaurine fossil, clocking in at 77.5 million years old.
About this creation
Here's a shot of the frill, complete with the downwards-curving hooks that sets this species apart from the rest.
A shot of the face, which is more compact and blunt than the Styracosaurus'.
Body shot, went with the element of fire on this one.
Shot of the hindquarters, also featuring fire-themed decor.
Shot of the belly, lacking the "udder" I placed on the Styracosaurus.
These two pictures demonstrate the rotation I built into the model. Essentially, the body is held in place using a firmly secured Rahkshi back and a small ball socket in the guts of the creature. This allows for better posing, as well as more realistic function. All my Ceratopsian models feature this, as the bodies are more or less the same design. This model has less internal components for economic purposes and because I streamlined it after building the Styracosaurus.
A comparison of the two. I simply did not have the heart to scrap the Styracosaurus to build this model, so I went online and bought bricks I needed (which was somewhat expensive.)
This is a great MOC! Usually most MOCs are humanoid, and you switched it up. I like it! The use of Bohrok and Rahkshi parts is something I haven't thought up before. You've inspired me to build a dinosaur, which is something I've never done! Good job on your MOC
I love this one too! Just stunning! You are inspiring me to want to make some too! I am starting to be sick of humanoids! I appreciate your attention to anatomical accuracy despite the restricted material! I like the addition of the rubbery spines one the back end considering they discovered ceratopsians like Triceratops had quills there. Can't wait to see more from you! Just make sure to label your pterosaurs and marine reptiles as such! XD
Wow! A bio-builder specializing in dinosaurs! You are now a fav! Incredible work on the shaping of the legs and the head! I really appreciate when someone puts great effort into creating porportional and detailed animals using technic parts. Maybe you'll be able to build some dinos from the new jurrasic park movie! I would be very interested to see your take on a velociraptor! Keep it up!
For your next creation which is sure to please maybe it could be a marine Dinosaur. To add diversity of course, Two legged predator dinosour mocs are common four legged are less and marine dinosaur mocs appear next to never.
