Ouranosaurus nigeriensis

I began this drawing around this time last year, had partially completed it, then promptly forgot about it. I decided to just neaten it up without doing further to it, so here we are.

The eye looks peculiarly large because of the way I drew the surrounding area. You may like to see this detail of the head. I had hoped to correct this too, but also decided to just leave it.

I would draw it with a little more bulk now. Let us call this one a sub-adult.

Coloured pencils, marker, sepia ink and gouache on recycled paper.

Beautiful piece of art, but I heard that the spikes of Ouranosaurus and Spinosaurus are more likely muscle-insertions rather than forming a sail, just like it works with American Bisons

I love the delicacy with which you draw even things that probably would not generally fall under the delicate category ;) It's so graceful, and I love the gentleness of the colors.

I'm watching you for a few years. Your arts are amazing. Could you make a tutorial? About drawing technique, not anatomy etc :D Because I'd like to draw some traditional comics, But I'm afraid that I'll use improper e.g. paper and my art will look terrible :)

I'll pile on, though you've heard me praise this one before. Only now I've thought of a horrible pun-- It's nice to see Ouranosaurus get some attention. I guess it is no longer 'Also-ranosaurus." I apologize.

Great! Ouranosaurus totally deserve more love!
