Paleoartist Tyler Keillor has long specialized in sculpting realistic clay dinosaur heads for museums and universities, but for his next project — an exacting replica of a full Dryptosaurs built entirely as a 3-D digital object — Kiellor needed a little help from the crowd. He set up a modest Kickstarter campaign to help buy the tools needed to craft his dinosaur digitally, offering various 12-inch dinosaur models he’s designed as rewards. The $6,000 goal being met on Monday (and since doubled), Keillor is now setting up to start building a virtual model of this T-Rex cousin. Read the full story at Wired.
