OLOROTITAN ARHARENSIS by vasix OLOROTITAN ARHARENSIS by vasix
Not the biggest and most titanic dinosaur-but an awesome genus for Russia. Olorotitan is the most complete dinosaur found in Russia and is a lambeosaurine hardrosaur, related to the more famed North American genera.

Russia has done far more for the world of Permian wildlife than dinos......the crest is what mainly makes this man unique. It is hatchet-shaped, but I added a personal artistic touch (which I see in plenty of reconstructions) as a hardening skin plate that accentuates the shape of the core. This was a keratin cover, and would've blown the semicircle bony part into fantastic shapes. They should, however, be in the realms of plausible science!


WITH THIS DEVIATION.......a sigh of relief.....for time to even work on Photoshop CS being found......:)

Cool! I like the eyespots on the crest-seems like they would use the crest as a false head to distract attackers or something like that.

Easy, you scan the picture, then you pick colors, select the perfect brushes for the situation, then you blend colors, dodge, smudge, lighten and color up!! then you have a little cutie of a pic! ;)
