I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks Triceratops looks best in blue.

Thank you.I think blue color looks good for Triceratops.
This is the way it is suppose to be.Previously in the old picture,it's back was half feet more high and i guess it was overall slightly longer. You can even see it's body shorter than this in other comparison images.

What about its head should be covered in horn, because it connected with beak, horns and frill-spikes? What about its quills on its body?

I thought that the triceratops was as big as a house, but he is small as a elephant.Sweating a little... Sweating a little... Sweating a little...

Triceratops could win if it was healthy and full grown but if t rex could grab from behindmit could win so 50 50

Nice! The hind feet and other features are really quite accurate. Skin fossils of Triceratops have been found, but they have not been published yet, so there's nothing wrong with giving it standard pebbly dinosaur skin. I only see two little problems: the front feet should be tilted outwards, so that looking from the side you can see all four nails; and the lower jaw isn't quite as short as it is here. All in all, great photomanipulation.

Three claws, Triceratops had only three claws on the Manus.

it's fantastic as a classical reconstruction, and it's wonderfully detailed, but they found out that triceratops had quills ;) but I know it would be extremely hard to do. ;P

Not without a reference.I did read about that quills before some days and i forgot about it.But even thought if i remembered it,i would have not used it.

PeteriDish Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
as i already said, that is completely understandable. You have made a beautiful reconstruction, and it would not necessarily benefit from having the quills included, and it would be extremely hard to make it look good with the quills included. :)
