ohhhh I get it, because the Icthyosaur is one of the last of its kind in the early Cretaceous, so to extinction it goes HELL NO!! sorry if I spoiled it
One meal less...
Haha GOT reference xD
This really does justice to the icthyosaurs and their dolphin-like agility.
so, you like game of thrones?
Love the GOT reference by the way!
What's the thing trying to eat the Platypterygius?
Fantastic stuff! One of those two had better make a hasty retreat, or else they might be in even more trouble!
I wish I could think of an intelligent comment to make, but I can't. However, I think I could just say "AWESOME!" and have properly expressed the gist of what I was hoping for.
Another masterpiece of Paleontography, that's how marine reptiles need to be
this looks so real!
This remind me a picture with a Great white shark and a seal....
I can't decide whether the ASoIaF reference or the art is better xd
Very beautiful picture. The composition is very interesting.
I can't decide if this is more like killer whales and dolphins or great whites and seals, but either way this is completely amazing!
To be honest sharks and seals were my inspiration, but I can see how orcas and dolphins also fit.
I think you were inspired by the scenes of killer whales attacking dolphins. It's an interesting depiction of the behavioural of these animals. Good work!!!
You make the ichthyosaur look so... non-reptilian. Very, very different way of depicting ichthyosaurs. I like it. Of course, it also almost goes without saying that this picture is so life-like that it could have appeared in Nat Geo.
Thank you! I don't particularly like reptilian ichthyosaurs, they seem to have been so far removed from what we perceive as 'reptiles' and so specialized for this cetacean-like lifestyle that I'm sure something like this is closer to the truth.
Your art is fantastic, and your Game of Thrones references are equaly so.
A prehistoric orca attack on dolphin, cool!
Front-flip to freedom!
Again, you manage to associate tension and drama with grace and beauty. Wondefuly done. Many of your marine pieces are among my most favorites.
I'm assuming that's Kronosaurus attacking it?
Love it! You're truly the best with these photo-realistic pictures.
