Compsognathus longipes by Alexanderlovegrove Compsognathus longipes by Alexanderlovegrove
Acrylic on paper.  A group of Compsognathus rest during the day under some ferns.  Number 6 in the Compsognathidae series - I've got 3 left to go!  I believe there's still some debate on whether all the Compsognathids are truly related, so maybe it's best to consider it the 'small coelurosaur' series :D

Hey, I was wondering if this piece could be used in my Monday livestream thumbnail? (I always link to the DA Artist's profile page in the stream description)? Is this possible with this piece?

I'd also love this as part of my wallpaper rotation. Could there be a version in 1080p or is this not possible?

Hi, thanks.  Feel free to use this picture for your stream.  The version uploaded here is the maximum resolution, I'm afraid.  It's not a very big painting!

They're soooo cute, but are you sure about the extent of mouth opening?

Thanks!  I'm not sure at all - I was trying to replicate the look that some birds have by showing the skin around the mouth going back a bit further than the actual opening though.

I love the nictitating membrane detail! 
You have a serious talent to draw lifelike animals, in harmony with their backgrounds, which is not an easy task. I can´t say more than: Great job!

Great! :D It's too bad the JP Compies don't look like this. These look so much better. :) (I know the ones in JP are mixed with frog DNA, but still...I much prefer the realistic ones.)

Thanks!  Well, The Lost World came out only just after the discovery of Sinosauropteryx, the first dinosaur found with feathers and a close relative of Compsognathus.  I suppose there wasn't enough time to influence the film.  They could do it now...The less said about Jurassic World the better, though :O
