I started this about a month ago when I saw some illustrations of some fantasy-inspired carousel horses, and thought I’d like to try and draw some dinosaur themed ones. I was going to post this yesterday, but a friend asked me to draw a Dilophosaurus for him, so I obliged.
I started off with the herbivores/ornithischians first since they’d be easier to translate design ideas, but luckily I found examples of all kinds of animals that have been turned into fancy carousel creatures- including a Dinotopia themed set, that too my knowledge wasn’t used, but was simply on display.
The dinosaur species are on the pictures if clicked on, but if that doesn’t work, or it doesn’t display we have:
Maiasaurus, Gallimimus, Pachycephalosaurus, Pachyrhinosaurus, Iguanodon, Lambeosaurus, Carnotaurus, Torvosaurus, Deltadromeus, Caudipteryx and Dilophosaurus.
