Macroplata by hyphenatedsuperhero Macroplata by hyphenatedsuperhero
A Macroplata fishing near a coral reef in the seas of the early Jurassic.
Macroplata was a pliosaur, a type of marine reptile related to plesiosaurs, but instead of having a long neck and a small head as plesiosaurs, they were the opposite, a large, heavy head on a short neck. And in this Macroplata was somewhat of an oddball. Macroplata had an unusually long neck for a pliosaur, almost twice as long as the head.
This reptile grew up to 4.5 metres long.
Yay!!!
Finally, I found a scanner that suits my needs!

Jajaja, supongo. Aún así, lo peor del proceso siempre son los fondos.

xD si uno normalmente dice ''esque el fondo no importa, lo que importa es esto, el fondo quita atencion o no me gustan los fondos''.
En vez de decir que no nos salen xD

Oh, entonces sí soy malo con los peces...
No, se supone que fuera un Leptolepis pero, como dije antes, no soy bueno dibujando peces.
En fin, gracias por el comentario.

Pues... felicidades por el escáner....

Me recuerda a un pequeño Liuplerodon.... y me gusta el fondo, porque a pesar de que es sencillo, es muy bonito.

Yay, por fin voy a poder seguir subiendo cosas!
Sí, de hecho... es un pariente más pequeño y primitivo del Liopleurodon.

Pues... algo así eran los pliosaurios. Los superdepredadores del mar. Como... um... llegaste a ver paseando con dinosaurios? Había un animal... el Liopleurodon, que ocupaba más o menos la misma posición y más o menos el mismo tamaño que el T-Rex. Separa a las criaturas en dos grupos: otros Liopleurodon y comida.
Gracias!
Escaner, yay! :w00t:

Nice composition! It looks like, if colored it would be an awesome poster (though even just in pencil its still really cool).

Whoa, thanks!! Yeah, maybe I'll ink it and upload it for coloring.
I will not color it myself, for I am spectacularly lost in the realms of color.

Colored or not, it's really good :D As I said before, the way you positioned the different elements of the picture makes it really visually interesting.
