Royal Wedding

It seems the Arctic Prince has found his princess.

Inspiration comes from this beautiful picture of Japanese Cranes, from photographer Dennis Binda.

*Note that both male and female possess colorful snouts and 'crests', as proposed by the new paper on mutual sexual selection in dinosaurs and pterosaurs (at least in some species).

There's something about this piece... I just love it so much! I can't describe it, it's like i'm looking at a still from documentary where real dinosaurs were filmed. Ok that makes no sense, i'm done trying to describe it, it's just so AMAZING!

Lovely and elegant, but still altogether sleek and deadly. Well done.

Despite reservations about the environmental temperatures implied, I do like the way you´ve portrayed these animals.
Julio-Lacerda's avatar
Thank you. I know the environment depicted is highly speculative, I just love to combine dinosaurs and snow.

Such elegance

Those who didn't know the dinosaur world wouldn't really expects such gracefulness and elegance from a tyrannosaur, no?
Julio-Lacerda's avatar
Indeed. Having birds as close relatives, I wouldn't be surprise to see that beauty and elegance were abundant in the mezosoic.

That point is also shown by your newer piece on Buitreraptor :D
