Metriacanthosaurus concept

By
Here is a concept art of two Metriacanthosaurus.
this shows a male and female in size comparition and coloration.
I wanted these two to seem like the "tigers of Jurassic Park"
That's why they are pure black and yellow, and orange.

I might revisit it with my new style, as it is usually something I dont usually do.

Instant reminder for me of the cover of greg paul's predatory dinosaurs of the world. Awesome!

I dont even know what that book looks like. XD
But I'm guessing it has a Metriacanthosaurus on the cover.

Also, interesting to add, this is Jurassic PArk fanart right? Well this book just so happened to be one of the main inspirations for the original JP novel.

I would start to look for it on amazon, but I already have a book done by greg paul, which is doing a fantastic job already.
It's the Princeton Field Guide to Dinosaurs.
Marvelous book, got it mainly because of Greg's work.

Well, A Yanchuanosaurus, but that was regarded as a Metricanthosaurus at the time: Heres a link to a pic of the cover:[link]

Looks like an oldy.
I dont know, I might want to buy it.

1988 I think, but surprisingly ahead of its time. Although most of the drawings suffer from the old bunny hands epidemic, there are a few very impressive draeings that still have a lot of credibility. All the small theropods are feathered, archaeopteryx is said to be a ancestor to the dromeaosaurs rather than an early bird, Spinosaurus is said to be a big baryoynx, all stuff that as only taken seriously around a decade after publishing. There are a few wrong points, such as the statement that Segnosaurs/Therizinosaurs are derived prosauropods, and a few out of date classifications, but you will still find it quite impressive how far ahead of other books at the time this is.

hmm. then in that case I'll stick with the Princeton Guide.

Great! The color patterns look really well done, and for some reason, your art is begning to remind me of Luis V. Rey's work.

omg! that is awesome!
lol
... wait, is that a good or bad thing?

HAHA! It's a good thing. Luis Rey was one of my favorite paleoartists and I owe some of my talent to him since I first started drawing dinosaurs free-hand based on his works.

alright, i will. And sadly no I cant make them separate. I keep forgetting to update the .psd file so I can edit them if I needed.
I'll be sure to make the trikes separate.
