    Thats a really cool dino, the colors work especially well with it. I just question the snow, because, as you may know, dinos are cold blooded, and snow doesn't work well with them.
    Reminds me of that goat in the first Jurassic Park...That situation did not end well...

    Awesome! I love the dynamic lines and sense of movement.. i think the tail with the snow flinging off of it is what really sells it.

    Just want to add that between the flowing beard of the goat and the look the goats giving ol' t-rex, I get the feeling that goat's about to whip out some serious kung-fu on poor rex.

    Dude I thought the same thing.

    I love stylized art like this. It's dynamic and clean and well done. Not to mention that I love dinosaurs. Keep up the good work and I hope to see more from you.

    "I just question the snow, because, as you may know, dinos are cold blooded"

    Aah, I'm glad the debate that has raged for decades in the world of paleontology has finally been answered. Oh, hang on....

    Lol, just messing. Dinosaur fossils have been found within the arctic circle though, but obviously they were alive when it was forested, rather than a snowscape.

    Im simply pointing out that a lot of what we "know" about dinosurs is best guess stuff, so who are we to question a cool, funny pic?

    I've always admired works that blend realism with the comical. It's tough to do most of the time. With this stuff you really can't crit because it justifies anatomy when its distorted a tad. But you pulled off the overall mood and colors which is the key for this. That looks like a Ceratosaurus.

    I understand where your coming from, and I have seen just about every dinosaur special the national geographic and discovery channel has to offer. So yes, there is almost certainly exceptions to the rule, and extraordinary circumstances like hibernation. I was just under the impression that the most popular theory was in favor of cold blood. At least for carnivores, because the amount of food it would take to feed a massive, warm blooded and therefore high metabolism reptile like that would be incredible. Then again, this is next to pointless as all the buggers are dead anyway...

    You might want to read a book sometime...
    As pocko indicated, this issue may never be definitively resolved, since it's impossible to directly measure the metabolism of an extinct animal (in fact, it's harder than you think to determine the metabolism of a living animal.) However, the consensus that's been reached over the past twenty years or so is that, whatever the specifics of dinosaur biology, in terms of behavior and the ecological roles they filled,they were probably more similar to birds than to crocodilians (the two extant groups most closely related to them). And several lines of evidence, including bone vascularization and growth rates, seem to point to a more avian than reptilian physiology. In fact, the predator/prey ratios in dinosaur fossil communities are more in line with what we would expect from carnivores with a high metabolic rate than a low one. The argument that massive warm-blooded animals would have too high a food requirement to be physically met is actually used for giant herbivores like sauropods, not carnivores.

    All of which is completely irrelevant to renderwhite's piece, which is great!

    Huge thanks Guys! your comments and crits are most welcome

    Nice debate about dinosaurs, it was not a statement thing to put a dinosaur in a snowy environment (more of an artistic and funny choice) as im well aware that creatures like this would perhaps not develop or evolve in those conditions not only for being considered cold blooded creatures but due to Earth climate millions years ago as far as i know.

    Thanks!

    Yep, you got the colours perfect on this. On the face of it a blue dinosaur against a blue background doesn't sound a good idea, yet it works superbly. Great integration of all the elements too, using reflected light.

    I love intellectual debates, no cursing, yelling, just a meeting of the minds (unlike most internet "debate"). And very good observation on the avian half of the conversation. Its very interesting how we can get so much info on things that have been gone for so long. But remember that dinosaur evolution was a long process, and while many late age dinos like T-Rex and raptors were very avian, less sophisticated dinos were very similar to crocs (so much so that some were not considered dinos...) Its quite possible they shared numerous qualities from both groups. But you are right, we will never know, and we are quite off topic. Good talk.

    Yes the pieces is very well done, but, just noticed that the arms seem a little off to me. Almost like they are pointing in weird directions. But thats pretty minor.


    And I read plenty, damn it!

    killer illustration! love everything! one itty knit crit: perhaps adding slightly darker hues/contrast to the dino mouth (upper part of dinojaw-shadow ), thereby popping the teeth out/strengthening the focal point. could add some depth.... just yea ole 2 cents.
