Tenontosaurus tilletti by DeinonychusEmpire Tenontosaurus tilletti by DeinonychusEmpire
Tenontosaurus (sinew lizard) tilletti was a large basal ornithopod dinosaur named in 1970 by John Ostrom. It had an unusually long, broadened tail stiffened by a network of tendons and would have made a formidable weapon against predators.

Looks a bit skinny IMO, but otherwise pretty good, especially the colors.:)

At least you didn't draw the cliché showing poor Tenontosaurus being torn to shreds by a flock of Deinonychus...:lol:=P

I like the color details you give him/her!

Yeap, first time illustrating Tenontosaurus! It was an interesting draw, especially with no good skeletal diagrams available to reference. xD
