Wrestling Plateosaurus

Two males fighting over females. Typical.

Those claws had to be used for something perhaps other than playing with ittle bittle branches. I also propose these same claws could have tickled said females also.

Well who knows, I'm not here to judge what goes on between consenting adult prosauropods.

I thought they where kissing , but I was wrong.

The kissing plateosaurs. The hooked claws are there to hold tighter?

Love the pastel colors and smooth lines. Very nice work on the anatomy. :)

I like the way you did the stylized clouds of dust, contrasting with the sleek figures and bold outlines :thumbsup:

This would make a really nice submission for the 'All Yesterdays' contest at the LITC blog along with the Aletopelta wallowing in mud :lol:

It could be! Thanks, I haven't drawn dinosaurs for a while and thought I would give it ago with my new found "style" and I am rather satisfied with the result.
Andorou-Khan's avatar
Your style certainly suits paleoart well. You should be satisfied, they look terrific :)

Looks like their scratching each other, just like grizzly fights.
commander-salamander's avatar
That is pretty much what they are doing :D

Very stylish, digging those thick lines and textures!

Thanks, I've never drawn dinosaurs like this before and you know I kinda like it :D

Artistically a great painting, but... CALM DOWN YOU STUPID DINOS!
commander-salamander's avatar
You are right, they should use their words, not their fists.
R9A's avatar
At least they should give it a try.
commander-salamander's avatar
Sadly they have brains like peas :no:
R9A's avatar
Oh... but don't tell me now they are not able to talk.
commander-salamander's avatar
Moans, grunts and bellows that are very expressive but can be misinterpreted.
R9A's avatar
Maybe one of them only said "Good morning!".
commander-salamander's avatar
And the other thought something was said about his mother!
