"it's interesting to note that no ankylosaur appears in either Jurassic Park novels."

There's a Euoplocephalus in the first one, although it's not seen.

It kind of reminds me of a Gargoylesaurus I once saw. What do you use to make these?

hm, yeah, i meant seen animals.

i basically just have a 5.5in x 8.5in sketchpad that i'm filling up with a single dinosaur each page. i then scan them in and color them in photoshop. there's not really much in the way of special techniques or anything.
