Olorotitan arharensis

About time! I always wanted to draw this beautiful lambeosaurine from the Late Cretaceous of east asia, but somehow managed to skip it every time. Ah, damn theropods.

You don´t see many rearing duckbills these days, despite their more than facultative bipedalism. It´s not like they probably did it very often anyway, and in the case of long limbed and relatively long-necked ones like the "gigantic Swan" they wouldn´t need it too much. But well, seemed like a good oportunity to depict one. Bipedal hadrosaurs are part of my childhood, after all.

Wonderful. Agreed that Olorotitan is among the most beautiful hadrosaurids/saurolophids.

Looks fantastic, the coloration on the crest is my favorite detail.

Thanks, I think the head the best part, still not sold on the darker coloration of the body.

Absolutely beautiful! This is probably my favorite hadrosaur. Imagine what it would have sounded like.

My second favourite lanbeosaurine. :) I think the call may be like a trombone played out of tune and less deep than Parasaurolophus: [link]
