Torosaurus by DutchOrca Torosaurus by DutchOrca
Link to WIP's of this drawing in my Scraps: [link]


Finally done and finally scanned!
My scanner decided to go on a strike and after that suddenly talk in Italian after I finished this so people waiting for the finished version had to be patient. But it's here!

This is a Torosaurus, based on the creature from the Walking With Dinosaurs Live Experience.

Like I explained with the first WIP, I'm not trying to incorporate the latest scientific knowledge in this drawing. I just wanted to draw a Torosaurus because the two from the show were my favorites (after the Brachiosaurs).

More information on Torosaurus: [link]

Total time taken 13-14 hours (I didn't keep track, could be more), on brandless A4 drawing paper, using brandless pencils of varying hardness, a black pencil for the shadows, french stumps, q-tips, kneaded eraser and a regular eraser.

This is amazing, sir. It looks like it could walk right off the page.

Thank you and it does regularly. Very annoying, I have to go find it and put it back ;)

But all jokes aside, glad to hear you like it. I am still very pleased with this one. Maybe my best graphite drawing yet :)

Incredible. A unique subject for a graphite portrait. I would ahve been so daunted by all the textures of the skin. But you made it look amazing.

I was a little put off by the insane amount of texture and detail but in the end it was worth it ;)

The anatomy is excellent, and the wrinkly skin texture looks pretty real, too. Is this dinosaur anything like the triceratops?

And some scientist think it's the adult form of Triceratops, others believe it's a seperate species. So take your pick ;)
