Here is one of my favourite pics: Irritator, the so far smallest described spinosaurid genus. With 8 metres in lenth it still was a big theropod. The anima has a distictive head with a crest. Irritator lived in Brazil around the albian stage of the early cretaceous around 110 million years ago. I didnt use any references of other artists,just a cast of the skeleton
Its probably my best infographic I have done so far and I am very proud of it.
Next is suchomimus

"Irritator" Makes it sound like it just makes other dino's and fishes angry :P

This is probably my favourite family. Love these dinos. This one is a particular favourite simply because of the story behind it's name.

It turned out beautiful and very life-like considering the limited amount of available fossils on this species. :thumbsup:

very nice! I just think that the claws in the feet are kinda bad, but still an excellent drawing (I specially love the neck!)

How did it even get the name Irritator?

Martill et al. (1996) wrote that the generic name Irritator came "from irritation, the feeling the authors felt (understated here) when discovering that the snout had been artificially elongated."

Suppose not. But it's not any stranger than Philovenator.
