Another scientific illustration. A relative of Tyrannosaurus, Tarbosaurus, ambushes a completely surprised Saurolophus.
I wanted to get the feel of a wild life documentary with the animals behaving naturally, so the prey is reacting with the shock you often see on animals that are suddenly pinned by a predator.
Looked at a lot of reference of large mammals and reptiles.
The physical characteristics are based on recent discoveries.
Still trying to work on my values, my pictures lack punch! Trying for a low angle to get us in the action and express the large size of the animals.
Stuffed up the colour space as well, any advice about working in the correct colour space would be greatly appreciated!
