Wading by Mr--Jack Wading by Mr--Jack
Inspired by egrets in the creek between my place and work, a non-avian cousin enjoys foraging in a somewhat more natural environment. I had the tail in a more traditionally 'dinosaur'y curve for most of the process but actually quite like the straight (more accurate) version in the end.

I think the tail perfectly supports the composition! Also being a big fan of those areas where you can see through into the clear water!

Super beautiful! But raptor tails were more flexible than we once thought; they've been found bent in graceful s-shapes.

Yeah :>  I love all dinosaurs and such both modern and ancient, I was going to comment that your egret or what ever looked like a ancient dinosaur when I realized it WAS one :>

Yeah, birds are dinosaurs alright.
You mean the Terror Bird? Yeah, I previously posted two pictures, one old drawing and then a newer one. :)

Ditto.
I have yet to draw in more, like Deinocheirus mirificus and a cattle-like sauropod mount.
I'm really into drawing ancient creatures and spiffing them up.
BTW, how do you rate my gallery?

Pretty good, you seen that there may be evidence that Sauropods had feathers too, or least super proto feathers?

really well captured ,  i love how you managed to get the sense of depth in the water by just using the shadows casted by the surface algae.

At first glance it looks abstract. It took me a second to realize how realistically this captures algae on a lake... cool style.

Took me a moment to remember (read: look up) the name but yes!! I love his stuff - it's all lovely, but I particularly like his black and white work; like this is wonderful! I've been very tempted to get a few of his prints, but don't have a lot of wall space for them at the moment
