Macrogryphosaurus gondwanicus by EmperorDinobot Macrogryphosaurus gondwanicus by EmperorDinobot
Macrogryphosaurus, from Argentina, is a basal iguanodontid that is apparently very similar to Talenkauen, right town to the mysterious bony plates on its ribcage. It was way larger than Talenkauen, too, somewhere around 6 meters long.


I kinda hate how it turned out.

I've seen my art being stolen and put into blogs and stuff. I found out when I googled Macrogryphosaurus. I have contacted most of the assholes and asked them to give me credit simply as EmperorDinobot.

Why do you hate how it came out?
It's quite good, I like the position on it.
Seeing you post these in #Thumbsshare just reminds me of my childhood, I used to collect everything Dinosaur :giggle:

Well, after looking at it for a while, I grew fond of it. It's just that it's hard to know what the animal's proportions are, since I don't have the paper, so I just had to base it on something else.

Paleontologists are still working out new things about well-known fossil animals, like T-rex. If us speculative artists waited until they think they know everything about a given species, there would never have been ANYTHING done at all. Period.

No need to be ashamed of mistakes made because not enough is known, unless one lies about it. And proportions are often drawn wrong even of modern species.

That one did not get much publicity nor attention when it was described last year... It is true that the discovery was described in a rather obscure journal. Do you have the paper?

I do not. I saw a skeletal that looked very similar to that of Talenkauen's, but I imagined it as a more robust dinosaur, thus...I made this drawing. I don't know much about it, except that it's apparently very similar to Talenkauen, right down to the plates on its rib-cage, that it's from Argentina, and that it's considerably large (6 m long)
Papers from Argentina are awfully hard for me to acquire.

This one here? Should be OK, it apparently came directly from the paper :) :

They are underrated...which sucks. More of these need to be studied.

Old reconstructions of scuttellosaurus are lame...And books are lame in general, sadly.
