Magnapaulia laticaudus

Description

So "Lambeosaurus" laticaudus finally got itself a genus name.
My first try at using the shading style I'd been using for my Digimon stuff on a paleo-pic. I think it's given mixed results. It looks okay, but gets kind of muddled in the "noisy" bits.

Cool! Personally I'm digging all the detail. Maybe if you blended some of it or used a darker shade of the underlying color it wouldn't seem so noisy?

One off think I'm noticing is that this species used to be depicted with a Lambeosaurus-style crest for obvious reasons, but now that it's in it's own genus, everybody (including the paper) use a Corythosaurus crest... but wouldn't a Velafrons-like crest be more likely, given that they're sister taxa? Or is there a reason to think corythosaur-style crests were the ancestral condition?
