Hi everyone! here is a semi-quick drawing of an Anchiceratops (sorry if it's not accurate! I had no reference at the moment). I sketched it on the New Year's eve, so it's almost the last drawing of 2007 I did :P (the last one was a Compsoghnatus).

The colour was altered in photoshop obviously, haha :P

I hope you guys like it :)

* Ballpoint pen on paper

Looks more like a Chasmosaurus than Anchiceratops. Anchiceratops looks exactly Triceratops, but more curved brow horns and spikes on its frill.

I get this is outdated and all and it looks immensely far out! But I you should've looked for references to see what the dinosaur actually looked like.

What you choose to accent with the pen lines is amazing and looks great!! This so looks like a sketch you would find in a traveller's journal or something....

Your skill with pen is crazy!!! No underdrawing?!?! THIS IS MADNESS!!!!! :faint:

Wait, I just realised something - you drew this and the Compsognathus with a ballpoint pen?! That just adds to the awesomeness :thumbsup:

Awesome, as usual!

That reminds me, I once attended a Robert Bakker lecture and got a signed drawing of an Anchiceratops from him...
I wonder where it is.... >_>;

Damn. That is one of the most incredable ceratopsian illustrations i've seen in a long time.
Keep it up!

Woah, cool perspective, cool pose, excellent muscle structure...just a great picture.

I've always wondered what the purpose of it's 'shield' is...can't really be for protection...because of the lack of bones...
