Gecco has announced the first in a new series of statues, Dinomation The Retro Style (Dinosaur and Stop Motion Animation). These statue are meant to look like classic dinosaurs from old films and not modern style (like Jurassic Park). Check out the details below from Gecco and pre-order here from Gecco or from other retailers (listed below).
Since their discovery Dinosaurs have been portrayed in many different ways.
With every new discovery and artist imagination, the look of the dinosaurs changed. Extensive research and new evidence have locked down the anatomy of certain dinosaur species.
In this statue series, we capture the Dinosaurs in a retro style rather than an academic approach. Something that might appear in classic stop motion animation films.
The series title, Dinomation, comes from combining the words "Dinosaur" and "Stop Motion Animation." RYO the sculptor, painter and creator of this series, captures a moment of dynamic movement with the Dinosaur frozen in time, cut from a film frame of an imaginary yet familiar fantasy film.
He captures the wildness and vitality of the creature through his traditional clay sculpt.
The world’s most famous dinosaur "Tyrannosaurus Rex" marks the start of the series.
The base is inspired by the deserted landscape in North America, where they are said to have lived in the Cretaceous period.
"Spinosaurus" is lined up as the second release of the series.
