Martin!!!!! me encantan tus trabajos a colores!!!! tenes un gran manejo de lo que debe ser sombreado y lo que no..... lamentablemente (si, hay un lamentablemente....) te tengo que hacer un comentario, que posiblemente te duela tanto como a mi (o, por otro lado, tal vez ya lo supieras....). Me entere que aparentemente el craneo de Abelisaurus esta bastante inventado..... o sea, que los nasales son excesivamente largos, y q la cabeza del animal seria muchisimo mas cuadrada, mucho mas parecida a Carnotaurus, Aucasaurus, Majungatholus, etc etc....... es muy triste porque para mi la cabeza del Abeli era espectacular, pero bueno..... vamos a tener que aceptar eso.... igual, no hay ningun trabajo publicado al respecto, asi q hasta que no se hable del tema, uno puede seguir dibujandola asi, alargada y con un aspecto letal y fantastico!!!

Muchas gracias por los comentarios. La verdad es cierto, la mejor parte del craneo de Abelisaurus es la region posterior y es poco lo que se concerva del rostro y las mandibulas (hasta donde se, las mandibulas son puro invento). Hay que recordar que en la publicacion original, lo comparan mucho con los tyrannosauridos y es posible que recontruyeran el craneo en base a ese patron. Creo que es posible que fuese casi tan ñato como los otros abelisaurios, pero es dificil estar seguros.

Again your technique with coloured pencil is good as in your Majungatholus piece. The thing I think that would really set these off is if they had a little bit of background colour--not necessarily a scene, which is difficult, but something along the lines of a graduated wash that indicates light direction or something. Of course, that is entirely up to the artiste.
Great work, again. Impressive.

Thank you again..... some day I will learn how to use the background better.... but for the time being I like the white funds

And white is a good place to start. It lets you pay attention to technique and form. And eventually you just grow into needing some kind of toned background; at least I did--there are very few of my more recent works that are on white. And then I suppose you work into doing landscapes... but I'm afraid I suck at them; you'll probably do much better than I at that aspect of our work. =)

Ooo...very cool! Dinosaurs were beautiful animals. I can't help drawing them myself. ^^
