Ischioceratops

Again, there are very few tries to reconstruct this species so far (I know only two other examples and two skeletal drawings).
Ischioceratops is a late surviving leptoceratopsid from China, known from the unusual pelvis, parts of the tail and the hind limbs. Maybe it's closest relative was 
Montanoceratops and that was also the animal I used here as a reference for this restoration.
This drawing was a quick pic for Earth Archives, produced within a half hour, 02:00 in the morning. The hind limbs could have been a little bit more gracile but
overall I satisfied :P When you look closely you will notice that the eye of the animal of covered largely by the nictitating membrane, something you see rarely in Paleoart
and a detail I thought is worth experimenting with :P

Great!, I really like how you use credible and beautiful colours, and some sensible speculation.

Why? Of course is it art =)

No, what I meant was that this is definitely great art, the other part was an inside joke I thought you understood.

Looks a lot like Protoceratops

They were similar in a few ways but when you actually compare this guy to one of the newer skeletal reconstructions you will notice a lot 
of differences.
