Fly Away by CraftyCreatures Fly Away by CraftyCreatures
Hi everyone,

I'm back with a new painting I wanted to share. I painted two Iguanodon watching the bird Iberomesornis (hope I spelled that right) take flight in their forest home. My goal was to create a peaceful picture and show how beautiful these animals must have been.

Thank you all for your comments and favorites on my paintings. I love that people enjoy them and thats why I want to keep painting.

I've been working on some other paintings, mostly of some ceratopsians. I'll post them as well when I feel they look alright:)

Thanks again fellow dino lovers!

Those colors are so electric and vivid yet at the same time believable on large creatures like this thanks to the great background work, shading and the rest. :D

I love a peaceful scene with dinosaurs.  The Iguanodon have a pretty coloration, reminds me of a bird's coloration.

Thanks and its good to hear because that is exactly what I'm trying to do. I really want them to look beautiful and be a part of their surroundings which should be equally beautiful. I do my best to capture it in a peaceful way. Hoping to show dinos were not always running around killing stuff ;) Thank you again for your compliment!

Amazing atmosphere in this picture. I love the colors on this Iguanodon (I get they are I. bernissartensis?). And you never get enough Iberian dinosaurs!

Thank you and I appreciate your compliment. I'm trying to improve my paleoart and am striving for a mix of impressionism and abstraction along with realism. I couldn't do photo-real if I tried, lol. Thank you again and I'm glad you like it. :)
