Nice drawing!  Brings out an interesting convergent evolution of the bony head crest (or frill) which resurfaced with the ceratopsians during the Cretaceous period.  Both periods must have had similar Apex predator strategies.

It's awesome to see so much Permian art. :)

Whoa! I have always wanted to know where to get a good skeletal reconstruction of Scutosaurus. Can you please suggest me which is better, and where to find it?
[link] - Reconstruction based on W. Gregory, can be innaccurate (animal seems too terrestrial and active)
[link] - Russian reconstruction, page in Russian, use translate tools. Can be more accurate (Scutosaurs wasn't so terrestrial, most probably hippo-like)
[link] - another Russian picture.

I love the angle, it really look imposing and, as already said, close to the view a predator would have of one of those.
Thank you!!

By far, this is got to be the best Scutosaurus I've ever seen!
A fantastic pose and perspective, really conveys the "don't mess with me" attitude I suppose an animal that large should have.
Thank you very much!
