Hadrosaur from Spitsbergen by EsthervanHulsen Hadrosaur from Spitsbergen by EsthervanHulsen
On Spitsbergen, dinosaur tracks have been found. Becuae of the three toed, clawed feet, scientists previously though these were made my therapods, but later other, smaller round tracks were discovered between the feet tracks, making it clear these were made by some kind of hadrosaur. No other fossils have been found to date, so the species of this dinosaur remains unknown.

Copic Marker and colored pencil on Fabriano paper
21 x 30 cm

Just one question though

Weren't the footprints found on Spitsbergen made by Iguanadonts? Or is this a different set of footprints

We don't really know. Iguanodon or some sort of hadrosaur, yes. :)

Wow!
Hadrosaurs are some of my favourite Sauropods due to their ability to shift between quadrupedal and bipedal stances and the unique bill-like teeth they used to grasp vegetation. :)

Hmm, I wonder how Ginkgo tastes... :P

Haha, you can actually eat ginko. The younger leaves supposedly have lots of medicinal qualitues! :)

You know what, fine.
I'll admit I was acting sour; I didn't take my meds yet so I was kinda grumpy.

You were right, I was wrong.

Fighting on the internet is stupid and a waste of time.
Let's just call it a truce and end it here.

So let me do the mature thing and say... I'm sorry.

Interesting. I always find giving obscurer dinosaur species some attention to be an important thing.

Nicely done btw! Really love it, but it the temporal fenestrae is a bit shrink-wrapped.

Thanks! I think skin was pretty tight around parts of a dinosaur head (a bit like with a horse). :)

That's true, this can be seen in many modern animals, but the temporal fenestrae wouldn't be that visible. The front of the face is beautifully composed in musculature.
