Pachyrhinosaurus canadensis by vasix Pachyrhinosaurus canadensis by vasix
While I normally draw serious pics with some form of commitment, there are a few times when I like to degenerate, to lay back, let go of all my tortures and sorrows and just do a fun little project, just for the sadistic kick of it.....
HERE is one such fun project.....

Well, the Pachyrhinosaurus genus has three species-P. lakustai, P. pretorum and P. canadensis, and this is P. canadensis. I restored this on similar grounds to my old Pachyrhinosaurus, my good P. lakustai pic, but the shape of this species' frill, head ornamentation and nasal boss differed from P. lakustai's. So, here is a simple, straight long keratinous horn. I made the tail more brush-like and foxy, full of filamentous integument.

Of course, this is not meant to be a serious picture, instead being a small picture drawn for just the hell of it, due to my boredom and also because I couldn't help myself. So, a colored dino on a ghostly half-worked grey background? What am I thinking?

(Dinosaur Park Formation, Late Cretaceous, Early Maastrichtian Stage[Edmontonian NALMA])

Cretaceous reflection of Elasmotherium, eh? :trollface:

Anyway, my first thought: It's so fluffy I'm gonna die :D Really interesting approach and enjoyable outcome.

Well, with the discovery of filamentous integument on Psittacosaurus-also a ceratopsian-some artists began depicting other horned dinos with these filaments. I do it very often....

I'm not sure if Pachyrhinosaurus had a true horn, but you're interpretation is interesting, it's like a dinosaurian version of the giant unicorn rhino, Elasmotherium:)

Well, the horn is made of keratin, not of bone, since the nasal boss of the animal was like that of a rhinoceros. It's actually a theory among certain artists and scientists, and I actually support this idea fully. It's nice in an aesthetic sense, for one thing....

Actually the idea that the nasal boss supported a large horn has recently been disproved by studies correlating bone texture to keratin shape. Looks awesome nonetheless!
