Little update.....trying something new, totally out of my comfort-zone. Dont know what to think of it, still lots of things to tackle which eventually will lead to a total dislike...
Posted linework and a colorversion for steps.
I know it's a little against the rules, but a while I made this for the teen challenge with the same subject.
I was the only one participating in that challenge so iI was a bit dissapointed
Anyway, here it is
Alright, after a lot more painting here is my progress...
I should look around CA beyond the lounge some more - I had no idea this was here 'til I saw the post on the Dinosaur Mailing List.
Of the four finished entries I think Rob's is the most skilfully rendered, but immediately makes me think about 'lizard-faced monsters in gorilla suits'. Sorry!
(I used to go with 'vulture-style bald heads' too, until I saw a couple of arguments that I can't quite place at the moment. In a nutshell, feathery-headed raptors [avian raptors] and corvids don't have much trouble with carcasses.)
I think Banvivre went a bit overboard, in showing her work with the relevant plantlife. Can't say I know composition, but the great green mass does crowd and confuse the piece. The animals themselves aren't quite as sharp as Rob's, but they look accurate and very natural to me. Gets my vote.

Elwell: Well, yes. It never went anywhere for as long as I've been subscribed there... some 8 years. True, there has been the usual drama for online communities.
