Another dinosaur image for the upcoming book I'm planning. It was from a photo of a clay sculpture I made several years ago. I added all the dino skin texture and of course the background in PhotoshopCS.
check out those sexy, dimwitted dinos!
I love this!!
Gorgeous work !
Could be short-tailed pterosaurs, right?
I'm just amazed by the textures you achieve.
cool...but....birds in the sky???!!!...in Jurassic!!!??? Its a mistake or a personal election???
Brilliant, but would those flying birds be correct for the time period? They look like condors.
Thanks! The birds are actually seagulls ... I believe there were similar birds in the late Jurassic ... besides, this image might be from the future when humans have cloned stegosaurs ... who knows??
Wow Wow! Love the dinos. And how did you do those amzing cloubs?? wow!
Thanks ... I actually like 'designing' clouds almost as much as painting dinos. I tried to add a subtle shape to the clouds to match the stegosaurs' spinal plates.
At a glance it looks really accurate, but when you look closer at the plates on their backs, you'll see that above the shoulders the plates are nearly symmetrical, and further along the back they are placed how they should be.
Good eye! There is a reason for this ... the stegosaur in the foreground needed to be visually balanced in the frame...then of course the one in the distance needed to match it ... it was an art decision rather than a science-based decision. So you are correct about the placement of the plates ... well sort of. I haven't heard yet of a stegosaur fossil find with definitive proof of exact placement of plates. But ... good eye anyways!
Well, the reason scientists believe the Stegosaurs did not have two rows of identical plates is because none of the plates on a Stegosaur are the same, they are all different sizes, so the current theory about the placement is that they went like _-_-_ instead of ====
