Tethyshadros insularis by vasix Tethyshadros insularis by vasix
I have been so terribly busy due to tests, and I might be either experiencing artist's block or even an attack of laziness, but this was worked on for two whole months, maybe even more, I dunno. I quite like the idea of mixing strangeness with facts, and popular culture. The stony beach idea comes from the "Walking With Dinosaurs" Episode 5, where the Aussie dinosaurs were portrayed in a forest bordering a stony beach near a river.
Tethyshadros is an Italian dinosaur, from the Campanian-Maastrichtian Stage (71-70 million years ago), Late Cretaceous, Liburnia Formation, a marine formation. Its tiny size of 13 feet (4 meters) is due to insular dwarfism.

The autumn leaves in the forest and the snowy mountains are actually as imaginative as the landscape as a whole. I seem to have been taking a fantasy touch to pics, and I like it. Tethyshadros had adaptations to run bipedal. I quite like the idea of drawing wintry and autumn and dreary scenes, because I adore cool shades and colors.

Hmmm might have been prey for dwarf versions of Pyroraptor olympius....

I don't think so...Pyroraptor is from France, in Provence, a completely different place from Tethyshadros

Oops, my bad, but still pygmy dromaeosaurs might have hunted them, so I assume you are well informed about prehistoric life?
