Plesiosaur by Rodrigo-Vega Plesiosaur by Rodrigo-Vega
Well it's been a long time.
I've been working on.. many things now with final tests and several project all of which for some reason or another I cannot upload yet.

But thanks for you patience.

I'm going to edit this image to add some information on this animal later on this week.

- I changed the snout. A friend of mine and I noticed that the previous snout was too sauropod-like.

Very nice. The effect of the light beneath the water and across the creature's skin is really good! Thanks for sharing.

What's the difference between a Plesiosaur and an Elasmosaurus?
Reply
:iconrodrigo-vega:
Rodrigo-Vega Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2010  Professional General Artist
Elasmosauruses are a group of plesiosaurs with longer necks.

:iconyung-reg88:
Yung-Reg88 Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2010
So basically one has a longer neck than the other one?
Reply
:iconrodrigo-vega:
Rodrigo-Vega Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2010  Professional General Artist
One group belongs in the other, in the same way dolphins are whales. And elasmosauruses, the smaller group is characterized yes, by the longer neck and being usually larger.

Sad thing most of them died out (save for seaturtles). :( How wonderful it would be to be able to spot these marvelous animals today...

Sea turtles... yes, I hadn't thought of them as badass giant marine reptiles. Maybe because they are rarely giant and never badass.

Nirdian Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2009  Hobbyist
Heh... Although sea turtles are cool (IMO) they are indeed not very big and/or badass. I simply stated that they are the only thing coming even remotely anywhere near to the awesome marine reptiles of old.

Terribly beautiful. Always a treat to see your work! If I may suggest, you should change the hue of the water to a darker blue as it goes deeper to make the plesiosaur reeally pop!

I love the water and the close-up squid; the details are amazing. The way the plesiosaur's eye is pitch black is haunting.

Have you ever drawn a scene purely underwater, of prehistoric sea-dwellers?
