This absolutely amazing. The way you made the skin colors on the Gorgosaurus is stunning. Plus I love the perspective of this.

What a stunning choice of colours! =) Parts of this painting are almost photo-real. Very good!

oh, I was gonna say that you should do a close up of your Corythosaur restoration. :nod: I'd kinda like to see it up close. But, you know, whatever...

Here they are a bit larger :)....

Yay! The necks look really good. You didn't go overboard on thickening the nuchal tendon, as GSP does, so that'd really good. And that color scheme! I love it. Not having the crest be red is a nice respite from all the red that a person sees on dinosaur crests. I guess I'm even guilty of that in my older work, but I'm trying to get away from it. Aaaaaanyway. Thanx for the big view. Made my day. =)

I think " Leonardo" pretty much proved the uber thick neck idea wrong.

I based the coloration more or less off of some African antelope, glad you like it. Red IS way overdone.

Oh, yea! Leo is incredible. He's so... breathtaking. When you walk into the room that he's in you can almost see his ribs moving as he breathes. And then when you get up close all the detail is just mindblowing! The amazing thing is that people still restore the nuchals "uber thick". :disbelief: I really like Scott Hartman's hadrosaur reconstructions because of how he recons the nuchals. I wish I could get my hands on more of them.
And African antel'opes (read an-tel" o-pee') are some of the best for hadrosaur colouring. I use them a lot. And none of them have red on their faces! Yay! No red!

Being the hadrosaur nut that I am I have to say that I really like your restoration of Corythosaurus. The loud colours on the Gorgosaurs is wonderful! And the eye of the one closest is fantastic!
So, I guess that means I really like this. =)
Oh! and the perspective with the leaves in the top righthand is a good trick for making the viewer feel drawn into the picture. Kudos on that. :nod: *hands you a trophy*
