Deinosuchus and Monoclonius: Pwnelage

Lol I didn't actually use "pwn" in the official exhibit . . . though the thought continues to tempt me. This illustration was for the Brigham Young University Museum of Paleontology. Deinosuchus, a 40-foot alligator from the Cretaceous period, could have gone toe to toe with just about any dinosaur of the time. However, he preferred instead to hide underwater, wait for an unsuspecting dinosaur with a shower cap and a bottle of Johnson and Johnson to waddle in for a bath, and then at the commencement of the third and climactic verse of "Rubber Ducky" explode out of the murk and froth to devour the poor soul as if it had hatched from an egg with a Little Debbie Label.

Deinosuchus, while originally discovered over 150 years ago ([link]) has recently undergone some re-thinking re- reconstruction. Paleontologists in Texas have found new skull specimens which have a very different shape than the on scientists interpereted in the past. This reconstruction in based on a photo of the said skull, kindly provided by the said folk :)

Good work! This is one of the coolest reconstructions of Deinosuchus I've seen, (I hope you didn't model it after the saltwater croc like everybody else) and that centrosaurine has a reason to be scared sh**less.

Thanks! It was modeled firstly after actual Deinosuchus remains, then with modern croc reference to help flesh it out.

i think its safe to say if deinosuchus was alive today we sure as heck wouldnt be. or would die from panic at the sight of a large body of water.

This is like a prehystoric NatGeo photo!! :D
The water drops on the "objective lens" gives an even more dynamismfor the picture, if the movement wasn't enougt!
Great piece of art again!:heart:

Now that is an awesome painting! I wish I could see the exhibit with all of your work in it :( well honestly I never visited the exhibit while I was in Provo (which is particularly sad when you consider how I once lived at Wyview) :XD: It just was never something that made it to the top of my list of things to do and I missed out.

Oh, from what I hear, congratulations are in order! Congrats Josh on making it into the program! :hug: That is so awesome, wonderful, and exciting! I hope everything else is going fantastically for you!

Honestly - because something made me think of you while I was on facebook so I stalked your facebook page and saw the great news :) but you are most certainly welcome (even with my slight stalkerish tendencies)

Right now, fantastic! I'm just getting settled in for the next week before school starts next Monday :) Michigan itself has been displaying how temperamental the weather can be - with cold rainy days with thunderstorms and perfectly sunny hot days in the few days that I've been here. How are you besides "way excited"? :D

Doing great! I'm still trying to figure out my schedule for next semester, a lot of the classes I'm now eligible for are full, but hey, I'm in! That's what matters.

I've been working on more illustrations for the Paleontology museum as well as the Eyring science center on campus, lighting for the senior animation, doing concept art for a short film and a stage production . . . pretty frantic, but frantic is better than boring lol :)

We miss you down here, but it's good to see you're still frequenting the DA. BTW my sis has been doing some Zelda fan art I think you might like. I'll be sure to let you know when she posts :)
