Gorgosaurus reconstruction

Although the final roundup of the great Gorgosaurus preparation series went up last week, there is a late entry. Darren was sent this rather natty reconstruction of Gorgosaurus by Eric Warren and he passed it onto me and of course me onto you all.

    Cool reconstruction. The colours and scale patterns are bold but realistic.
    Cherry on top for the Gorgosaurus preparation series.

    Cool reconstruction. Was the eye really that big?

    Thanks! I just wanted to make a quick comment on the above picture and answer the question posed…as far as the eye, to my knowledge, it is impossible to tell exactly how much of the socket the eye actually took up…that being said, I used a bird analogy and the measurements Darren provided for the reconstruction and took a best guess…Is it right? maybe, maybe not…but, just like the coloration, there are certain things that will always be guess work. That is the fun of illustrating dinosaurs! *this was not the actual commission, but, just one of the sketches Darren and I worked on that I decided to ink and give as a gift…

    Nice work, reminds me of William Stout’s style.
