EmperorDinobot's Paleoart part 3
« on: August 16, 2012, 12:24:31 PM »
Since my thread is long gone...And I have been retired, I offer you this:

Amargasaurus cazaui
Here reconstructed with a hump rather than  sail and a bare back. It's all speculation, but this animal can't offer us anything better anyways.
More to come. Maybe. This is the anchor I'm setting in. dAmn watermark because I'm too lazy to make my own and because people have been stealing my drawings.

I did not see this! I like the hump idea and you've executed it wonderfully. Y'know, I am impressed with the body and legs. Really well done.

*totally adores different Amargasaurus ideas*

Great work and an interesting take on Spinosaurus, I like it.  8) I particularly like the Altirhinus too.

Your gonna love what I have planned for my next sauropod then.. ;)

I like the Spinosaurus myself..any armor on that area wouldn't go un-used I'm sure.

Wonderful draws friend. My favorite is the mosasaur.
[Off Nick and Eddie's reactions to the dinosaurs] Oh yeah "Ooh, aah", that's how it always starts. But then there's running and screaming.

Excellent work!  I agree about the Spino, that's a very cool take on it. :)

Some broad told me in December that I needed to make my dinosaurs more interesting. I disagreed. I was happy with my scaly dinosaurs, boring like they were in the late 80's.
Then this All Yesterday's book got printed, and a contest went with it.

I decided to jump in with a fuzzy Apatosaurus... I mean, North America probably got cold at some point.
This one features a rat tail, whose whiplash end has quills, quills meant to stick into enemy Allosaurus. The feet also have this scaly nonsense according to some recent ichnofossils.

I also gave it purple neck stripes. Why just green and grey and brown? That's boring. When shedding the fuzz, this Apatosaurus' skin is essentially dark grey to black except for some of its tail, some of its belly, and the soft tissue below the neck and on the nose.

The most unusual thing I gave it was a humanshape nose! the tissue on top of its nose, when erected, gives it a nose not that different from a human nose (sans the cartilage).

It's also got lips.

The pencil version came out like ass, so I won't be uploading that, but I will soon upload one with a frontal view, so you can see the nose better.

Apatosaurus louisae

 Ooo. I can see those little quills being dangerous and possible causing quiet the nasty infection to a another animal. ;)

Wow, that is brilliant! I don't know why people don't draw fuzzy sauropods more often. Really liking the structure on the snout, and the dewlap as well. Very creative, overall :)

Possibly because there is 0% evidence for it.

Yep, no evidence for their fuzziness. It's why I usually refuse to coat them in feathers, as well as Anatotitan, and Carnotaurus, which are shown to be super scaly.

Buuut times are a changin'.



I'll be damned if they find a sauropod with fuzzy integument.

I'll be honest with you. I hate the idea. I really do, but you never know. Why would a heated up animal like this, who lives in a superheated environment ever need fuzz? It doesn't. It sure as hell freaking doesn't.
But it looks nice, doesn't it?

I think the point of the contest is to show something controversial. Just because of a few speciments tell us there's 100% no evidence doesn't mean the possibility continues to exist.

It's all healthy speculation. When the speculation becomes unhealthy, that's where we paleoartists draw the line.

You have a point there.

It's hard to say what's plausible what with so many things that defy logic.  Spock would have a seizure in he was into paleontology.. lol

Well, yes, there is that. ;D  But, they're dinosaurs, after all. Besides, I think it looks cool!

I finally finished this. It was payment for a Carnegie Spinosaurus, and for five years I was irresponsible and a complete dummy. Well, it is complete. I much prefer the pencil version.

No way! Green is the most versatile, lovely color out there! It's so easy to work with! It makes my life joyful! RED is a hard color to work with. Ugh.
