For Dan Varner, who helped me look at marine reptiles again. Ad perpetuam memoriam.
Dan Varner really had a likeness to sea reptiles,didn't he?I looked up his name,and there were sea beasts galore.
It's quite sad that he passed away. I never heard any details on his passing, though.
he will be missed
Dan Varner, the master. This is great work!
That's a mosasaur? Strikes me as Dakosaurus...
Metriorhynchoid/mosasauroid ... similar bauplans, different organisms. And yes, it was designed to be a mosasaur.
I have the feeling it should be a little bulkier, but very nice otherwise.
The skull is being overemphasized here in size a bit, which may be causing the body to seem smaller. So too the perspective.
I believe this is the first time you have drawn a mosasaur, right?
