Kronosaurus

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to work on a new book called Monster Sharks: Megalodon and Other Giant Prehistoric Predators of the Deep and got to paint a bunch of fun prehistoric sea critters. I'm starting by posting probably my personal favorite illustration of the bunch, the Kronosaurus. Pliosaurs are an interesting challenge to draw because you really don't get much poseability out of them, they aint got knees or elbows and their body is just an egg. So I had a lot of fun trying to come up with an interesting composition despite their inability to be an animal capable of cool poses. The little pterosaurs he's chasing are Aussiedraco, who let's be fair probably bit off more than it could chew. This piece will also be on display at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science in October for the Picturing the Past paleoart exhibition. I've got a whole bunch more of these, get excited.

This is the singular best piece of paleoart I've ever seen. How long did you spend on this?

Wow, that Kronosaurus is MASSIVE, compared to the Pteranodon!

You can't lie, majority of prehistoric big fish look fairly similar
