Pachyrhinosaurus canadiensis by EmperorDinobot Pachyrhinosaurus canadiensis by EmperorDinobot
This is a very well known animal. Decided to go more conservative with this one.

Comments are appreciated!

I like living in a world where "conservative" means tail quills, haha. Nice work!

I like it! It's common to see flat-bossed Pachyrhinosaurus, uncommon to see horn-nosed Pachyrhinosaurus, but pretty much unheard of to see it like this! 10/10.

I was looking at a blender when working this :lol: I mean it's nice to have boxing gloves, but the idea of boxing gloves does not sit well with me in nature. Claws and sharp structures are most efficient against predators and against those of the same species. So why not host a series of ultra hard keratinized "items" on the boss? I don't think the boss was meant to hold and support a super long, wide horn, but rather smaller hornlets. I've been thinking of doing one with a super thick boss but with a needlepoint end, and even of doing one with a nose insane antler service. I mean, we should think outside the box here.

I need papers on the close study of the nose boss on all of their species so that I can speculate in a healthy manner heheh.

I look forward to this possible future speculation! It sure is fun stuff, especially when you know just how far you can go without going over the top.
