Acrylic on paper. It's an 'updated' version of Charles R. Knight's famous 1897 painting.
Dryptosaurus was probably a Tyrannosauroidea (not Tyrannosauridae), so... the two fingers probably aren't accurate
This is almost better than the Charles R. Knight painting.
Wonderful painting. But, didn't they have three fingers? Perhaps I'm wrong...
This is a pretty old painting! When I did it I was just going on them being Tyrannosauroids. I'm not really sure if two or three would be appropriate though, I don't think they've found enough material from Dryptosaurus or Appalachiosaurus.
awww they're playing!
Only zone thing to say... Wow!
This is something I have wanted to do for awhile! Update the classic Charles Knight paintings! It looks fantastic.
Amazing. Nicely done.
Great remake of an absolute CLASSIC B)
Thanks! I actually think this piece has dated a lot now, I could do a better job on the background!
This awesome!! Great job, you have certainly captured Charles R. Knight's style and stayed true to the dynamics of the original. Also, nice work on the updated anatomy.
I love this! The idea and the execution.
Amazing Update of my favourite Knight-painting! ( Indeed using the original as a wallpaper at the moment )
1949? Don't you mean 1909? It's a VERY old painting done at the suggestion of Cope (surprisingly it's a lot more accurate than Knight's later stuff which was all plodding and sluggish).
Well, what do you expect? Knight followed the paleontologists of that time.
Yes, but the paleontologists of the 1920s to the 1950s actually took steps backward in their understanding of dinosaurs relative to the more open-minded paleontologists of the 1890s. Especially in perpetuating and practically enshrining the whole cold-blooded myth. Heilmann, Cope, and many others actually considered some pretty advanced ideas in their time. Later on guys like Colbert, Burian and Zallinger made everything lazy, plodding, and half-dead. Knight was taken for a ride, as we say.
It pretty much followed Human History. First we got the Classical Antiquity, followed by the Dark Ages of sluggish Taildraggers and then the Dinosaur Renaisscance.
Oh good spot! I don't know why I said 1949! Wikipedia says 1897, so I've changed it to that.
awesome! Good job.
IT's bloody amazing!
Man,that's one nice job!!!though i was going to do my updated version of the painting as well
Oh my goodness! this is such an amazing painting!
OMG, such a great impression of a true classic. You brought your own vision and flair to it while keeping the spirit of the original. This is stunning, I love it.
This is a great modern version the detail is amazing
Love this homage
