Spinosaurus

Alright, I got it right this time.
This one took months to finally wrap up, but I'm happy its finally complete! Unfortunately, I missed out on the hype-train earlier this year about Spinosaurus' awesome new look. I couldn't add my own reconstruction to the glorious wave of incredible art others had done of this elegant creature since I was so busy. So here's my own very aquatic interpretation of the new, 2020 Spinosaurus. Based on Ibrahim & comp. paper. Spinosaurus is one of my favorites and it just keeps getting cooler looking with every update.
A lot of thought went into very subtle details. I wanted a very water dependent and aquatic look so I added things like smooth, round body shapes, webbed hands and feet, Gharial-like rectangular scales along the back, Sea Snake hexagon scales along the paddle-like tail, a crocodilian throat pouch, and Cormorant-like soft tissue on the legs for extra hydrodynamics. It was a lot of fun and I can't wait to draw it again another time.
