Xenoceratops (WIP, fragment)

Xenoceratops foremostensis from Campanian age of Alberta, Canada. It's a part of big painting with environment. I think whether it is necessary to depict duckweed. Araceae existed in Campanian, but not Lemna or similar. So, maybe I should replace it with a unspecified algae.

Wonderful animal!

Why not use Limnobiophyllum? Although the leaves are helically arranged, when overgrown and jumbled together in great floating mats I'd imagine they'd look kinda like modern duckweed (although with slightly bigger leaves).

- due to the large size of the leaves. So, I would draw leaves and so spend a lot of time and effort.

Nice! Will it be swimming in moss or weeds? BTW, it does look alien from this angle, jsut like its name

Is this a new one? Jeez Louise, there were a lot of ceratopsians in mid-to-late-cretaceous Canada! D:

Beautiful! Can't wait to see more of that. I think it goes without saying that your ceratopsids are pretty much the best there are.

The colouration on the horns is very reminiscent to Brian Franczak's wonderful ceratopsians.

Рад видеть ксеноцератопса в твоем исполнении.
Вы с Чотоньи не сговариваясь выбрали для него сходные окраски?
Olorotitan's avatar
Нет, мы не сговаривалиь :). Мне просто он тоже видится в таких теплых орвнжево-красных тонах.
