Here’s the Cretaceous diorama from Dinosaurs In The Round . When you have to do a cardboard cut-out 3D piece, the computer layering system is quite valuable . Here I tried to put together all the layers as they would have been seen in flattened 2D horizontal position (and that is not counting the enormous amount of layers I had already used in the creation of every figure)… obviously I planned the maquette layer upon layer starting with Triceratops at the front (T. rex next and Edmontosaurus in the far back).
Same with the other two dioramas:
Jurassic (with Pterodactylus, Diplodocus, Allosaurus, Stegosaurus hidden in the forest and a Camarasaurus and Brachiosaurus herd in the far background)
… the water here is supposed to be translated in a plastic sheet… the team at Quarto Publishing did a really good job in the presentation of the package. All in all good volcanic vintage fun!
