If anyone could confirm that these pics work on their computer, that would be great!

Nice pics! Good use of shading.

Great stuff! I like your Ceratosaurus in particular.

Thanks! The Ceratosaurus is based on Scott Hartman's Ceratosaurus 'dentisulcatus' skeletal (which is Hartman says, and I'm inclined to agree with, may be an adult C> nasicornis. I enjoy stippling, and I am able to produce patterns and shading that read to me as more realistic and attractive by stippling - it has a soft, diffuse quality that I am not skilled enough to replicate with hatching, for instance.

Quick, unreferenced sketch of a generalised hadrosaurine - I will hopefully do a finished, measured drawing based on this concept eventually, probably with Edmontosaurus.

Edmontosaurus regalis, based on the previously posted loose sketch. Skeletal ref. Scott Hartman. Incorporating the "cock's comb" and skin impressions on neck, as reported by Bell et. al. (2014).

Thanks Jose! Compared to most dinosaurs, there's not that much speculation required to reconstruct Edmontosaurus (though obviously still quite a lot).

Skeletal ref. for Tylosaurus was from Scott Hartman, other ref. included mosasaur art by Henry Sharpe and various pictures of cetaceans and sharks.

Very nice use of stippling! It's a very underrated technique in my opinion.

Thanks a lot Halichoeres, and yeah I agree. Can't speak for others (who may have more skill) but for me, it allows the production of a much softer, more blended and 'realistic' texture and shade, as opposed to, say, hatching. One of the things that really inspired me to be a stippler was some of Bakker's stippled drawings in The Dinosaur Heresies.
