A very creative concept indeed! I'm particularly fond of the long, quill-like scales protruding from the shoulders. It's something I have never seen before in any sauropod depiction, and definitely makes your World of Teeth interpretation very unique!
This is also the first time that I have heard of Erketu, so thank you for introducing me to a both a new dinosaur and new design style!
Thank you so much!
Erketu was a new thing to me as well, I found it while trawling the depths of Wikipedia in search of the most obscure sauropods to use. Looks like this is about as obscure as it gets...
I think that the nostrils of this sauropod must be on the end of it's trunk, in similar manners to elephants, because trunks are like elongated nostrils fused on upper-lips.
Which I find this Brontosarus, as an example alot more accurate than the nostrils being ontop of their heads, which otherwise I got a better idea for those sauropods.
See, the thing is, it wasn't meant to be a bona fide trunk, rather a very long lip used to manipulate objects (similar to a rhino's lip but a bit more exaggerated), it resembles a trunk as an homage to the trunked sauropod concept, but I still wanted to do my own thing with it rather than copy that trope one-for-one.
