Acá algunas fotos que tomé del famoso Allosaurus comiéndose los restos de un Apatosaurus en el Museo Americano de Historia Natural en Nueva York.
Con ello también estaba el famoso cuadro de Charles R. Knight.
A centrosaurine ceratopsian from the Wahweap Formation of Utah, this dinosaur was first described in 2010 by James Kirkland and Donald DeBlieux. It lived during the Late Cretaceous (Campanian Age) about 79 million years ago.
Considering that the modern Rocky Mountains were being formed at the time, it seems possible that an unfortunate Diabloceratops might have encountered volcanoes. Volcanic lightning is a real natural phenomenon, and if you haven’t seen photos I highly recommend an image search – it’s amazing.
After the last few calm, quiet scenes I’ve painted, I figured a different tone might be fun, though the results may be straying dangerously close to something one might encounter on the side of a van… in the 1980’s…

Concavenator corcovatus by Román García Mora
Griseus: Mr. Csotonyi can draw feathers, protofeathers and whatever is necessary, we are talking about one of the best paleoartists ever. Above there are three of my favorites, but here’s his gallery, take a look.

Also, I want to recommend this blog: …is not a dinosaur.
'Arctic Tyrant' by Nathan Rogers:
"My take on the new tyrannosaurid named Nanuqsaurus hoglundi, from north of the Arctic Circle in Alaska. Smaller than a Tyrannosaurus rex, it may have been covered in feathers.(…)”
NOTE: I regret having had to reduce the image so it could fit here, (it was 16MB), and I cropped (again, sorry for that) two details to give you an idea of how the original looks. Please go and se the full resolution picture at Nathan Roger’s gallery (you might have to click a couple of times to enlarge it)

Sleeping Daspletosaurus, by ZombieSaurian:
"So, I’ve been tracking a certain genera of Tyrannosaur (Daspletosaurus) for a week now, and to my surprise, it’s pretty elusive for an animal of this size. So far, I’ve only seen the animal once in the distance. This time, I got her! I finally was lucky enough to actually capture this beautiful creature on camera without bait, and my God did it pay off! She’s sleeping peacefully, leaning on a tree and opening her eyelids slightly open, probably because of a little animal making screeches during the night. I know I heard them constantly and it was damn annoying. Her right arm is very white, so it’s probably brightly colored. I have no idea what the arm may be used for, and unfortunately I will not have the time to find out. But thank God she actually slept IN FRONT of the camera, on the last day! It was such a relief that this expedition wasn’t a failure, because it almost was. Though if there’s one thing I gotta say negatively about this photo, it’s…BUGS, fucking bugs!"

I love snow paintings for some reason.
