Baby Angurus Imprinted on Humans by Legrandzilla Baby Angurus Imprinted on Humans by Legrandzilla
The story here is that a baby Angurus hatched and imprinted on these humans.
Now they are trying to get him to eat some alfalfa. They desperately want to persuade him to be a vegetarian, if he isn't already. So he is sniffing the food they offer. One guy is trying to shove him to the food from behind, and other stubbled and fell and is worried he may get stepped on.
I used a new coloring technique, where I finished with coloured markers! Worked pretty well, I thought. Especially on the eyes.

Edit: I forgot to say...This was sculpted by Bill Gudmensen and put out as a kit by Resin Chef. The kit was resin and cost about $100 USD. I built and painted it, and externded the base so it would fit all what I wanted to do with it, and I added the grass and trees. The men are TT scale workers from Presier that I got by mistake, so I wanted to use them all up here.

It's obvious that this is creative, and very ankylosaur inspired :) this is very cool and cute :) and believe me unless you count baby godzilla, cuteness is quite rare in dakaiju 😉 this is very well painted and sculpted and I like the color of anguiruss skin a lot :D it's very reminiscent of the suit from destroy all monsters... My only gripe is that I always pictured ankylosaurs a bit chubbier even when the a baby... But that's a minimal complaint I guess... But he's very cute and I like the look in his eyes of confusion and a lot of thoughts are goin throughout his head on what to do with the humans neat sculpture keep up the good work! :D

This is a cool little idea, and the baby Angurus is very well designed. I like little stories where a monster or something bonds with humans. mainly because when I was a kid I would of loved to have my own pet big monster. Judging by how big those humans are compared to him as a baby, they're gonna have a hard time when he's full grown if he doesn't decide to strike out on his own.

Anguirus is an ankylosaur, so, hopefully he'll be a herbivore
