Ceratosaurus nasicornis by Alexanderlovegrove
Ceratosaurus nasicornis
Acrylic on paper.  An adult Ceratosaurus tries to drag its kill, a Diplodocus, away from a juvenile.  I regret choosing to paint all those scales!  Ceratosaurus is looking decidedly old school and a little croc like.  I didn't have the guts to put feathers on it, but I did add some quill-like structures to the arms.

Tyrannosaur by Alexanderlovegrove
Tyrannosaur
Acrylic on paper.  Tyrannosaurus rex walks through a mangrove scene.  Most modern mangrove plants had not evolved by the Cretaceous, but there is some evidence that Nipa palms (Nypa sp.) grew in these environments as they do today.

Qijianglong guokr by Alexanderlovegrove
Qijianglong guokr
Acrylic on paper.  Sauropods are hard!  The neck should really be quite a bit longer...put it down to me fumbling the perspective :O

Good practice, nonetheless.

Scipionyx samniticus by Alexanderlovegrove
Scipionyx samniticus
Acrylic on paper.  The final piece in the Compsognathid series!  Here a group of hatchling Scipionyx wait to be fed by an adult.  The young are based on the fossil, with the adult based on Sinocalliopteryx, as it's unknown from the fossil record.

Bioluminescent Compys by Alexanderlovegrove
Bioluminescent Compys
The nocturnal activities of the compys (Procompsognathus) were making them hard for park visitors to see, so some bioluminescence genes from lantern sharks were added to help them stand out.  You guessed it, it's #buildabetterfaketheropod !  This one was quite a struggle to complete, I think it will be back to my normal paintings for now!

I like dinosaurs as well. My main character in Elder Scrolls online has a couple that she conjures up when necessary, one two-legged and one flying. The two-legged one behaves like a big goofy dog while the flying one (who is actually closer to a harpy than a dinosaur, but has big leathery wings) tries to sing when she is happy. Unfortunately, she is a horrible singer who butchers tunes, but it's cute.

Thanks for the llama - dinner is saved ;P Cooking llama
Okay, I have to admit  that I'm absolutely not into dinosaurs (except fossils). But that's of course a matter of taste and nonetheless, your technique and style to paint look fantastic! Compliment to the smooth textures, powerful image dynamics and light effects, especially in the attempts at digital section Clap
