Dryosaurus

Hello. Here are a pair of images showing Dryosaurus, a 10 foot long ornithopod from the Late Jurassic of North America, and possibly also Europe and Africa as well. The images were made on printer paper with No. 2 pencil, Crayola and Prismacolor color pencils, and quite a bit of touch-up on the computer after they were scanned.

Yes, I know that the pictures are dated to September 2019, but it’s only recently that I’ve gotten around to scanning them.

I wanted to evoke an image of a reptilian antelope or gazelle, because these animals likely occupied a similar ecological niche on the Late Jurassic savannah.

Keep your pencils sharp.

  1. Very cool! I love the colors. It’s very bright for an herbivore, but it’s very reminiscent of gazelles, and I think it looks good. 🙂 My only critique would be that it’s a tad shrink-wrapped, but if that’s what you were going for then it looks good just as it is. 🙂 Keep up the good work!
