The entrance to an ancient mausoleum, carved into the shape of a skull, rises from a jungle where prehistoric creatures roam. Approaching this remote coastline is a ship of pirates hungry for treasure and adventure…
These are three commissioned artworks I did for a longtime family friend of mine. She wanted three 8×10” pieces of artwork to decorate her 12-year-old son’s room, and she requested 1) a warrior woman with a T. rex, 2) Garnet from the Steven Universe cartoon, and 3) a Triceratops. These were all fun to do, and I hope her son enjoys them!
Sketch of a Tyrannosaurus rex portrait, in response to recent findings that tyrannosaurids would have possessed sensitive, scaly crocodile-like faces. Normally I don’t draw all the individual scales on my dinosaurs of course, but I did want to give this rex a clearly crocodilian resemblance with the bumpy “lips”.
A young African princess shows affection towards her pet, a newly hatched Triceratops. We can only hope she’ll still be able to support (and manage) her darling once it grows to full size, of course. 😉
Deep in the jungle, a tribal huntress with a big spear pounces on a predatory Dilophosaurus wetherilli. Whomever it is that emerges victorious in the upcoming duel, a hunter will have become the hunted.
In Late Cretaceous South America, around 70 million years ago, an Austroraptor cabazai scavenges on a deceased sauropod.
Austroraptor was a dromaeosaurid dinosaur (or raptor) characterized by a relatively narrow snout and short forelimbs. Most paleoartists depict it eating fish, and it very well may have done so most of the time. But who’s to say it didn’t treat itself to something different every now and then?
