Irritator challengeri by vasix Irritator challengeri by vasix
Here, after almost a month or so of work, is, finally, the artwork I've often dreamed about, but never seen hit Photoshop or the paper or the internet. Finally, here is my Irritator. Irritator challengeri (Challenger's irritating beast) is from Brazil, of at least 110 or so million years ago, Albian Stage of the Cretaceous Period. It was found in the Santana Formation, a fossil formation that was wet, and near the coast, although this one is obviously inland.
Irritator was a spinosaur, 8 meters long, among the smaller members of its family, but I suppose it was still a fascinating creature. Here, it has caught a small freshwater shark. The crest and some facial details have been exaggerated a bit with extra skin and soft tissue.

Very nice piece! Although that spider web is doing something weird, it seems to have an unsupported arch to it.
