Dracorex (or rather Pachycephalosaurus, since I'm a lumper) made an appearance in an early draft of Tyrannosaur Queen, which unfortunately didn't survive to the finished version.

Beautiful art, Dan!
Are you in the "no cheeks" camp when it comes to Ornithischians?

Based on the other comments, though, maybe I ought to rethink my affiliation.

It looks great, Daniel! Nice perspective and color choice. 
Shouldn't it have some more developed cheeks, though?

Yeah, I didn't quite get the three-dimensionality of the head, did I? Do you know where I can find a front view of the skull?

Oh, the head dimensionality looks quite right to me, I was actually referring to the absence of fleshy "cheeks" around the mouth.

Oh I see. I thought the consensus was marginocephalans didn't have fleshy cheeks.

It's a prickly issue, but I think evidence suggests the existence of muscle-less "cheeks" (not real cheeks, those are exclusive to mammals)

The thing looks creepier being cheekless... Awesome!

Did the marginocephalians that actually make it have cheeks (I reckon Triceratops is in the novel, right?)

I'm using :iconqilong:'s interpretation of cheeklessness.
