Name: "spine lizard"

Length: 16 – 18 m

Height: 5 m

Weight: 7 – 9 tons

Diet: carnivore

Time: Cretaceous

Location: Africa

Spinosaurus (meaning “spine lizard”) is a genus of theropod dinosaur which lived in what is now North Africa, from the Albian to early Cenomanian stages of the Cretaceous Period, about 100 to 93 million years ago. This genus was first known from Egyptian remains discovered in the 1910s and described by German paleontologist Ernst Stromer. These original remains were destroyed in World War II, but additional skull material has come to light in recent years. It is unclear whether one or two species are represented in the described fossils. The best known species is S. aegyptiacus from Egypt, although a potential second species, S. marocannus, has been recovered from Morocco.

The distinctive spines of Spinosaurus, which were long extensions of the vertebrae, grew up to 2 meters (7 ft) long and were likely to have had skin connecting them, forming a sail-like structure, although some authors have suggested that they were covered in muscle and formed a hump or ridge. Multiple functions have been put forward for this structure, including thermoregulation and display. According to recent estimates, Spinosaurus is the largest of all known carnivorous dinosaurs, even larger than Tyrannosaurus rex and Giganotosaurus. These estimates suggest that it was around 16 to 18 metres (52.5 to 59.1 ft) in length and 7 to 9 tonnes (7.7 to 9.9 tons) in weight.

Gorgosaurus, meaning fierce lizard, is a genus of tyrannosaurid theropod dinosaur that live in western North America during the late Cretaceous. Gorgosaurus was smaller than Tyrannosaurus with adults reaching 26-30 ft in length. Gorgosaurus lived in a lush floodplain environment along the edge of an inland sea at times sharing territory with other tyrannosaurids such as Daspletosaurus. As an apex predator it preyed upon ceratopsids and hadrosaurs.

A hungry Zhuchengtyrannus magnus defends his kill against a marauding Tarbosaurus bataar. This scene actually consists of two paintings put together! I might upload them separately at some point, as I think the Tarbosaurus stands quite well on his own.

Acrylic on paper. Photographing this was a nightmare! Download for the best view.

Dryptosaurus aquilunguis is a primitive tyrannosauroid theropod from the Maastricthian of East North America (the subcontinent Appalachia). Even though Dryptosaurus is one of the first named dinosaurs in USA, it's not very popular outside the paleontological circles. This is caused by the very fragmentary nature of its fossilized remains. It's estimated to be a little over 7 meters long, and as a primitive member of the clade had three fingers on each hand, unlike more derived members (as T. rex) which had two.

Here, Dryptosaurus aquilunguis is laying on one side on the ground, resting, being sick or dying (it's your choice). The resting positon of the animal is inspired by recent discussion over Hell Creek's forums.

This reconstruction is higly speculative. The long head is based after other tyrannosauroids as Eotyrannus, Appalachiosaurus, Guanlong and Dilong and the nasal ornamentation is hypothesized on the base of presences of similar structures in Guanlong, Yutyrannus and Alioramus. As the fossils evidence shows tyrannosaurids were atleast partly covered by feathers. Following the rumorms of fossilized patches of T. rex's skin showing regions covered with tiny scales and/or naked skin, I included these types of integument in this restoration. The underside of the animal is covered with large subrectangular scales, which get finer in the upper parts of the body. Legs are also scaly, as in most theropods. Naked skin is present on thighs, parts of the tail and over the ribs.

Reference: The reconstruction is loosely based on Andrey Atuchin - [link]

New Caledonian crows fashion sticks into harpoons and use them to snag tasty grubs out of holes and rotting wood. I wanted to draw a dinosaur using tools the same way, and I figured if any dinosaur was clever enough to figure it out, it would be a troodontid. So here is Jinfengopteryx elegans, a small troodontid from China that lived around 122 million years ago. This was my first serious foray into paleo art and though I admit I took some liberties with the flora, I tried to be as accurate as I could with the dinosaur. :iconqilong: helped me out a lot with the anatomy (many thanks!)

This is one of the few oil pieces I've done recently...trying to get back into traditional art for the sake of sizing up my art muscles and making sure I haven't lost my touch for color matching and value study. This photo came out a little darker than it should have, unfortunately, but there is only so much one can do with crappy lighting and medium that was way too glossy (READ THE FINE PRINT, DAMIEN, JESUS).
expect more paintings down the line, it is more fun than I remembered.
This was referenced from a photo by a co-worker at the Royal Tyrrell Museum. Best museum, TIS TRUE.
