Loving this whole series of works, man. The art style is really nice. One critique of this one and one or two others - the posture of the hands. Dinosaurs can not rotate their wrists like you and I can. Therefore the palms should be facing in at one another (as if the animal was about to clap) at all times. This image by Jaime Headden gives a good example: [link] The position you've done here with the palms facing back towards the limbs is called "pronated" (but is commonly referred to as "bunny hands" or "zombie hands" in the paleo-community) and would be impossible for the animal to achieve without snapping it's wrists. Hope this helps and I hope to see more in the series
Hey mate thats fine aye i know what you mean i think its just a bad habit i need to kick haha, i don't aim the work to be all anatomically correct just based on artistic senses. thanks though im glad you popinted it out i'l try make sure i break the habit in next pieces of work!! ha
Well good to know that you want to break the habit. Bunny handed dinosaurs kind of disturb me when I see them nowdays tbh. The thought of what the bones in the wrist must be doing is gross and makes me shudder.
Great pic of the Dilophosaurus's I like how the male on the front is trying to impress the female sitting next to him.
I actually prefer this version of the animal over Jurassic Park's version of the animal. Quite coincedental that you put the Dilophosaurus and Gallimimus pic at the same moment, because when I was a kid, I fantasized about a story for this dinosaur community (Similar to the Smurf's community) and I had a comedic duo in it comprised from a silly and funloving Gallimimus and a grumpy Dilophosaurus xD
