Yes, I know that Pteranodon’s primary food source was probably hunting fish from the ocean rather than scavenging for scraps but the T-Rex might not have been a big scary hunter either, so there. I just thought that they looked cool together and my library of dinosaur models is limited. Anyway, I came up with this idea for two reasons: 1: I had massive stress-induced heartburn at the time and 2: thanks to the stress I needed to do something fun like an artwork with dinosaurs. I love dinosaurs and have ever since I was a small child so playing with them has always been fun for me whether it be as plastic toys or 3D models.
I rendered this scene in Poser 11 Superfly. The ambient channels on the molten parts of the lava scenery weren’t enough to project the light I wanted for this scene. So, I duplicated the lava props that I wanted to project light and then used special transparent emissive materials that would project lots of light onto the surrounding scene and dinosaurs. I decided against using depth of field at the last minute. In postwork, I used a few Photoshop actions and adjustment layers to adjust the colors and contrast of the overall image. I also used a few tricks of my own to enhance the glows of the molten lava. I used some smoke brushes to add a touch of smoke to the scene then greatly lowered the opacity of the smoke layers and erased what I didn’t need. I used multiple smoke layers to create a sense of depth.
