Sunset Allosaurs

It's been a while since I last painted any dinosaurs, and so this is my painting of a pair of Allosaurs basking in the sunset and looking of into the distance, probably at some commotion created by a herd of Diplodocus nearby. It's still a work in progress but I think I got off to a good start. However, I somewhat "cheated" because the colors and lighting of the evening setting is based on an image that I saw from the net.

The sketch below was the initial idea.

Here's the image that I referred to; my lighting and colors are heavily influenced by it. I got that image from the net, so it is copyrighted to whoever owns it.

A long thought to be extinct Moogie has been spotted and photographed in the deep jungles of Sarawak, Malaysia. This cute-but-huge mammal was last sighted in January, 1980, and was commonly believed to be extinct due to massive habitat loss and extensively hunted for its beautiful fluffy fur which fetches high prices in the fur trade. Biologists are now actively studying the remaining population level of Moogies in that area, and keeping fingers crossed to find a sustainable breeding population there.
