Humble, but powerful, a quiet dignity that is passive until provoked. definitely a true Mexican.

Really liking this one as well. It's funny how such a simple thing like a warm breath cloud can bring so much life into a picture. (:

I love thw way you did the ambient on this one.
And to boot, you used one of my favourite ceratopsians.
As with the Titanoceratops and the Rubeosaurus, this is a scene I don't think I see too often in paleoart. And you did it magnificently (pun intended), the details, like the background color and the Coahuilaceratops' breath really makes you feel the drop in temperature.
Simply amazing.

About bloody time!

The perspective of the head is somewhat off, but that is really overshadowed by the great facial markings and awesome trickling rainy atmosphere.

Thank you, please explore the perspective further?

Sure. I just hope I can explain this properly.
So basic perspective anatomy. You have a horizon , and you got some vanishing points. All lines parallel to each other meet in the same vanishing point.
Now if you draw a line between upper corners of the frill you will notice that it's horizontal.
Now if you do the same for the bases of the horns you will notice that the line is tilted. The two lines should be intersecting in the same vanishing point.
Here's a explanatory pic with rough paintover. Might not be exact since I just eyeballed it, but I hope it's atleast somewhat helpful.
