Acrocanthosaurus Family by Banvivirie Acrocanthosaurus Family by Banvivirie
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.

Buy a print! I am poor.

Very beautiful, and indeed very nice details! Next to the position and angle I like the fact the background has also gotten a lot of attention. Well done! :)

Meant I've commented to this already... but no. Okay. Of course this is a real nice interpretation of a Acrocanthosaurus Family. Nicely executed as well. Now some critiques...
I think noone actually noticed it, but the Babies are missing their Halluxes. As well as the mother misses her ear (or it is quite good hidden). Hope you don't mind it but the lack of those features really strikes me. :)

Oh yeaaah... they are missing. The mother's ear was more obvious in the original drawing, but looks like it was colored over. :noes: It looks like there may have been an attempt at an inner toe in the original as well, but it was also colored over.
Thanks for pointing those out~

This is cool. I feel like the only dinosaurs that really get any attention are the trex and stegosaurus(maybe the triceratops).
It looks a little flat to me due to the black outlines, though I'm really in no place to give critique.
Shitload of detail in this man. Nice job.

During its progress, I was being told that the babies were blending in to the background too much; it's also a stylistic tendency of mine that I was hoping to avoid, but it seems it was necessary here. :shrug:

I think you should submit this to Prehistoric Times magazine. Unfortunately, they don't pay for artwork, but I have heard that artists have gotten other, more lucrative jobs from people who saw their work in PT.

I love this,the detail is incredible, and I agree with you about the hump rather than just stretched skin, with a more "traditionally shaped" theropod such as a carnosaur, the hump just seems more practical.

My word, that did come out quite nice! I'm assuming the coloring was done with your computer tablet, right? I like that your style looks more like watercolor than Photoshop. You really have quite a knack for that earth tone palette, as well.

And kudos on not going with that weird "skin on bones" look. I hate it when you can see the fenestrae on a dinosaur's head.

Thank you! I really love the way watercolors look, but I'm too indecisive to use that kind of medium...

Aw man, I love dinosaur art.

You've got a bad value problem in this though. Squint your eyes, you'll see what I mean. Everything sort of muddies out.
Keep going though bro!

Thanks - I know what you mean about the brightnesses though. It's weird when I look at it on other people's monitors it looks almost over-exposed, and on my monitor it's just muddy... I told myself not to mess with it until I do a print.
