About Author

Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)

      I'm guessing... Shapekeys with drivers! No? :)
      Would like to hear something about this from the author.

  1. Impressive! First Class. Could be in any 3d animation movie by the big studios. As above mentioned: "The muscle movements.". Close look on the "lizards" toes. They tremble on the walk cicle like would be the real ones in one live raptor.

  2. Okay.  I call fake.  You can't just hop in a time machine, grab a clone or something and then expect us to believe it's CGI.  :>

    That is Very good.  At least this non-expert thinks so.

  3. Ristesekuloski on

    Bohdan, this is a perfect model and animation. That thing looks alive! Only note is that raptors did have feathers... but it looks scarier this way!

  4. Great work. I assume muscle movement is made out by shapes driven by bones. Now Did you use Normal maps? Texture seems to be made on Zbrush? All animation is great, the only one I did not like was the running Cycle. I guess it should jump a bit more. Rest outstanding !

  5. Comeinandburn on

    Is this done in Blender?  I assumed it was because it was posted here but it doesn't make any mention of it on the youtube page

  6.  previous post said "one live raptor". Do we have access to one?  Did you put markers on a dinosaur and motion track it?  Now make a herd of them dance to Lionel Ritchie. BTW great job!  If you rigged that by just imagination alone.... that's just spectacular!

  7. Awesome! The model is great and the motion looks realistic although I have never seen living dinosaurus :)
    Amazing work!!! 

  8. this is absolutely amazing. I want to know how the artist did those muscles to move. very impressive result. I love blender.

  9. Excellent work, of course the 'dinosaur' is a JP-inspired fictional construct. 

    The hands are twisted wrong(an incredibly common mistake in theropod reconstructions), and obviously all actual dromeosaurs would've been fully feathered.

    But otherwise technically excellent.
