A pod of Ichthyosaurus seen from a rather unusual angle.

Remarkable. Did you use the color pattern of Stenella clymene ( Short-Snouted Spinner Dolphin), or that of the Hawaiian form of Stenella longirostris ( Long-Snouted Spinner Dolphin.)? Still remarkable!

As recently I was rather obsessed with marine reptiles, I have to hold myself from overreacting to this masterpiece :P Great job, the angle, the shading, colours, everything is perfect :D

I thought these were dolphins...it's cool to know these are Icthyosaurids...I draw them like dolphins too :3

Yeah, they were probably pretty much like dolphins in terms of anatomy and behaviour (although probably much less smart).

Well, smart in terms of how we define intelligence. ;) But yes, probably less so than the modern dolphin. Their body type resemblance is uncanny; it goes to show how diverse the sea life was back then.

Again, wonderful work, as ever. :3

Love the shadows! Really gives it a feel of three-dimensionality.

wonderful! I love how the waves distort their shape a bit, well-played! =)

Thanks! I was a bit unsure about that distortion at first, but it does look more real :)

Oh, I've never seen this series. It's about marine life, I suppose?

* I want to say "nice view" :D

The series is about the natural life of the region, both marine and those of the islands. Try to view it if you have the chance, have nice images and music (I've watch it sometimes in Animal Planet, by the way).
