Oh my god! I can't believe that this is a drawing, I thought it must be a sculpture or CG rendering. There is a wonderful depth and three dimensionality that I have never seen done this flawlessly in pencil before. Jesus, that is astounding.

I like this like an mexican wrestler, but one critique remains.

The idea that all theropods had no lips is misleading, majungo and kin probably didnt, unless you really think those pits are for blood vessels. But T-rex and co obviously did, and most probably all theropods in general. Lizards have lips, Sharks have lips, anything without a beak has lips, even fish. The difference between a lip and a beak confuses most people, which is why you dont see as many nowadays.

Of course, a facial skin impression of *ANY* dinosaur would be a big help.

Crocs are an exception. But what I'm saying is that Dinosaurs have blood vessel pits in the right place to indicate lips.

Actually, they don't.

Crocs have what people call "cranial sculpting", a rough bone surface.

even then, the pits are spaced somewhatevenly near the mouth. makes you think its a little more than a dented skull.

anyway, the drawing is damn great even in case its not accurate. so, all is well.

wow, awsome detail dude...inspiring.
I find when I do close-ups in this sort of style, my theropods become slightly too reptilian.
I'll perfect them with time...

Why do I missed this one? I watch you so it's impossible to miss. The "watching" thing has malfunctions for sure. The result is fantastic, "chronophage" but fantastic.

Thanks mate. Yeah, I've been taking a break for a while. Started on this drawing several months back, set it aside, and then decided to finish it up on my 4-day weekend. Had motivational malfunctions of some sort. Came back to DA, saw that dustdevil had already done a head study of Majungasaurus, and felt (I imagine) a bit like that chick that shows up at formal event, only to see that some other chick is wearing the exact same dress. So now I'm all "Like, OMG!" and going to lock myself in the proverbial bathroom.
