KentrosaurusVs.Small Elaphros by EmperorDinobot KentrosaurusVs.Small Elaphros by EmperorDinobot
At last it's finished. Yeah. Don't tell me. I know what the mistakes are. It looks better in person.
Also, the Elaphrosaurs are tiny dwarf ones. Or maybe the Kentrosaurus is huge, because elaphrosaurus is actually a bigger animal than kentrosaurus.

Comments before favorite.

Touchups may come soon.

Wow this is very interesting! I imagined doing a scene like this once. I'm a BIG fan of all the Tendaguru dinosaurs, and a Kentrosaurus vs. a pack of Elaphrosaurus, though not all that likely IMO, is definitely an exciting, action-packed scene. Great capture of the movement, the proportional mistakes can be overlooked for now. I've gotta draw it some time.

PS. Kentrosaurus actually was NOT "smaller" than Elaphrosaurus, it was merely shorter in length. Kentrosaurus was much heavier. If you look at the skeleton of Elaphrosaurus, it's a VERY slim and lightly built animal, long-bodied but NOT heavy. It almost looks Coelophysid in shape, even though it's usually classed as a Ceratosaur....

Of course they're both puny midgets compared to all the big sauropods that called the Tendaguru area home:

*Giraffatitan
*the "Archbishop" brachiosaur
*Barosaurus africanus
(a.k.a. Tornieria africanus)
*Tendaguria (basically a vanilla diplodocid)
*Janenschia
*....and some random undescribed Apatosaur...

And even the rather wimpy dwarf sauropod Dicraeosaurus still makes Kentrosaurus look tiny.

tendaguria was more likely a camarasaurus relative

Really? My bad, honestly I don't know that much about it. There's really not much info on the remains, is there?

I needed a pack of noasaur like things attacking a Kentrosaurus. I had been meaning to make this for a while. There's also a color one in the works, but I'm afraid of accidentally screwing it up. It's been on hold since summer.

Well, it can't be that screwed up... the shape and perspective is pretty good. Just straighten the Kentro's arms and make the hind legs bigger and lift the tail a bit higher off the ground, and you'll have it perfect.

What I really like about this scene is that it looks like it's taking place on a hill or a slope, which adds a lot more action to the scene IMO. Most dino-art uses completely flat ground as the setting, but hilly ground is a lot more interesting and realistic. That's what often makes Wayne Barlowe superior to Mark Hallett.

The kentro's arms are bent in a sort of lower your front side and prep for attack position. And yeah it's happening on a sloped terrain on the dark side of a cliff.

I love the angle to this as people have said- and how the whole picture is filled with 'movement'. Very nice change to your usual work.

Just claim the Elaphrosaurus' are juveniles! ;) But a really good drawing! I am happy that you are doing something else than lateral views, which are, BTW, excellent reference drawings! :)
