Parasaurolophus in the Woods by deskridge Parasaurolophus in the Woods by deskridge
A parasaurolophus wanders through a dense forest.

For the holidays, I've had a bit of time off and I've spent it working on some dino work.

Before you comment, please read my  standard paleoart disclaimer:
When it comes to paleoart, the images I create favor 'art' more than 'paleo'. While I try my best to depict animals as accurately as possible, I'm make no claim that they 100% scientifically accurate. The same goes for the environment I depict them in. I am primarily interested in creating aesthetically pleasing images and paintings. Scientific accuracy comes second behind artistic expression.

Was a long while since I last saw a pic of a Parasaurolophus, and I like the work you've done it. The proportions are neat, and I think this is the first time I've seen one with such long blue markings. I like it!

"As accurately as possible" means extrapolating most of a creature or plants' appearance from very small information: bones.

Do folks really expect you to get the colors, gait, skin, bulk--basically everything--correct, just from _bones_? That's a very unrealistic expectation. Bones tell us relatively little.

Eh, there’s a reason it’s called “artistic license”.

You know, this is pretty aesthetically pleasing, except I wanna turn around and run like heck as fast and quietly as I can!! :D :giggle: So, just thought I'd let you know you succeeded in that endeavor, and wow, how peculiar that some must have already commented on the lack of accuracy on a scientific level... tish and pish on them. ;) Like, that you have to create a disclaimer for them. Silly noodle heads. Hope people are kind to ya!! Have a happy holiday, what's left of it, if you have this week off! :P
