Acrocanthosaurus with its babies! Please look at the pretty details.
I wanted to work on a more thorough, detailed dinosaur illustration, so I chose a dinosaur that hasn't had much spotlight and is often incorrectly depicted. Although the skeleton shows high neural spines on its vertebrae (hence its namesake), that doesn't mean its flesh was shrinkwrapped to its spine, there are muscle attachments and probably fat storage in there. Same goes with the skull - one does not simply depict every fenestra through the skin - oh and I gave them lips over their teeth, because I'm a terrible, terrible, person and I should feel bad for not following trends.
I have spent way too much time on this, so hopefully people do like it. I'll be taking a break from the dinos, but expect more in the future.Original pencil drawing.Original drawing for sale.
Buy a print! I am poor.
