Granastrapotherium WIP 2 by Zimices Granastrapotherium WIP 2 by Zimices
A more refined version. I'll change the proportions of the neck, the head size and the lenght of the tusks, plus some cleaning.
Update: new tail.

Gracias, aunque no es una danta ni un elefante, pertenece un grupo totalmente extinto actualmente :)

¿Es esta la versión finalizada?

Casi... creo que necesita un pequeño retoque en la trompa, pero de resto ya está como para la parte final, que es ponerlo en un ambiente.

Como le decía a Dragonthunders, un claro de una selva (probablemente amazónica), que se parecería a su ambiente natural. El problema es conseguir una foto de buena resolución con las características que busco. Por ahora no he tenido mucho éxito que digamos...

I think it looks like a cross between a gomphothere and a Phosphatotherium. O and by the way awesome drawing of Granastrapotherium.

Thanks! although personally I think that it is very similar to a mixed Gomphotherium with a tapir:)

Quite a beauty actually. I've never seen anybody do this with an astrapothere!

Con paciencia :D
Igual que en los casos anteriores usé Photoshop, pero usando de referencia una imagen cree el perfil y empecé a usar partes de distintos animaless para completar las formas y texturas que se requieran. En medio de eso hay que ir cortando, borrando y diluyendo esas piezas para que no se note tanto :)

Idealmente un claro en un área selvática. El norte de Suramérica estaba cubierto por muchas selvas, y parece que estos megaherbívoros (astrapoterios, perezosos, toxodontes) contribuían a crear espacios abiertos en medio de las mismas. LO malo es que de momento no he conseguido imágenes de buena resolución de lo que busco.

es verdad lo que dice. La parte mas dificil del dibujo digital es lograr buscar una buena imagen de un lugar.

mucho mejor esta reconstruccion, solo veo un fallo en la cola, pero en general muy buena fotomanipulacion :)

Gracias, la cola aún necesita mucho trabajo, por lo visto tendré que ponerme a retocar bastante el mechón de la misma. Pero bueno, espero subir una mejor versión pronto.

Reminds me of Pyrotherium.

In size and their general shape certainly both animals could be similar, but the tusks of pyrotheres and astrapotheres are very diferent...

Astrapotherium seems to differ quite differently from the pyrotheres, but Pyrotherium does look rather similar to Granastrapotherium ([link]).

Of, course, that it's for the development of large tusks and large trunk in both animals... convergente evolution, although astrapothere tusks were real canines.
