Awesome.

I meant to place a period at the end of that sentence.

Another nice drawing/art. As much as I'd hate to annoy you, and I don't want an argument, but I thought the name meant "Flesh-eating bull" from what I hear,

A better name would be "Death Runner" due to the fact it was the fastest land predator ever to live (as fast as, or faster than, most if not all cheetahs)

That's true. Or Speed Demon, due to its velocity and horns.

i believe that's the intention, yes, but the name, broken down into its pure roots is "carnos," mean meat, or flesh, and "taurus," meaning bull. for most of the name meanings i wrote down for the project i was trying my best to get at the actual meaning, not necessarily the intention.

and don't worry about annoying me, i love to answer questions.

How do you do the color schemes? Is it random, or is there a specific set of requirements for each one?

i color them in photoshop, i usually do a quick "thumbnail" sketch of the color scheme (though it isn't smaller, it's just fast), mess around a bunch to get what i like, and then apply it to the real thing.

Skin impressions are also known for Concavenator, Allosaurus, and some tyrannosaurids, if not as complete as that of Carnotaurus.

Actually, I just went on the Dinosaur ride and Walt Disney World today and I can tell you, this guy is FREAKIN SCARY. I closed my eyes half the time lol. Although this picture makes him look kinda cute with those short little stubby arms... Well Done! xD
