I really admired this in Prehistoric Times-the colors on the Styracosaurs are really quite believable! I have to go look at your other dinosaurs now. ^^

like your style, the tail seems a bit too thin though

Thank you:) I've since updated this painting and made the tails thicker so it looks a little better:) Thank you again!

Such a lovely couple, it looks like your previous ceratopsian painting but with a tinge of a spring-time romance :heart: between the two. Its got that feel from all the warm colors you've used. A little romp through the fields with that special someone :giggle:.

Well, that's just me anyway. Not sure if thats what u meant. :D

I like it anyway :clap:

Another awesome piece of paleoart! Great work. Just one thing... don't you think the tails should be not just a little longer but also a little thicker?

Thanks:):) Hmmm, I'm not to sure:) I'll have to look at some more skeletals and books and see. I've seen these guys rendered anywhere from fat to skinny so I don't know if they should be longer. Thank you though for pointing it out and I'll go see if I can find out.

I'm glad you like my paleoart. I'm working on some hadrosaurs now and have a stegosaurus in the works:)

I'm just saying, maybe I'm wrong, but I think that their tails may have been used as a counterweight, not so much as in theropods but anyway I think it should be a little bigger, like these: [link]
But anyway, it's just a n opinion. ;)

I'm looking forward to see those dinosaurs! specially the Stegosaurus :)

Hi there:) Oh, I so appreciate you sending me that link!!! Thank you much:) I love that I have other eyes here that are into paleoart, it's so difficult to paint something taht you can't have a good photo of:)

Really, I thank you for it:) I'll be sure to check out this website for more on other animals. I've also read some that some people think these guys could not gallop! Ah, well they look cool running:)

I sent this one to PT mag, but I'm going to post the new ones here first to get some feedback so I can change them before I send them out into the world:)

Again, thanks!

You`re welcome!;):)
As for the ceratopsians speed, I don't think they were slow and incapable of running, specially if they had semi erect forelegs. And their size surelly wasn't a big problem, elephants and rhinoceros are very large animals, and they are really fast, reaching 40 km/h or even faster in rhinoceros. Maybe the ceratopsians weren't that fast, but perhaps they could reach speeds of 30 km/h or so. That's my opinion, I could be wrong, hehe.
