Sorry for the long absence but I was away last week - I went to a Slash concert as a birthday gift for myself, so excuse me.

Bipedal Ungulate - Take 2 by Smnt2000
Bipedal Ungulate - Take 2
Don't have much time for doing the stuff that I really want to, but every now and then I find a spot for that kind of stuff.
Among the many things I'm doing, the online class of creature design is certainly the one that inspires me the most. I'm very slow with it, but I'm learning a lot of things.
This here is just an update of the bipedal ungulate concept. It's not even a definitive lineart but just the design that I've chosen. I think I've gone a long way if you compare this drawing with my first attempt (link: <da:thumb id="471860240">).
Can't wait to proceed.

What a satisfying week.
Those past days were pretty amusing - my new drawing about Deinocheirus became hugely popular (a surprise so big that I still can't believe it), Marvel's showed his 3rd Cinematic Phase and the web literally exploded, I went to Lucca Comics and Games as usual and I met the fantastic Terryl Whitlatch and the Italian comic book artist Zerocalcare and to end the week in great style Doctor Who aired one of its most unpredictable episodes in years. Yeah, I guess I can't complain about all this.
Try to enjoy the 40th Roundup!

Deinocheirus in 'Don't Forget to Duck' by Smnt2000
Deinocheirus in 'Don't Forget to Duck'
The recently described Deinocheirus is surely one of the weirdest theropods we know: this humongous, feathered ornithomimosaur sought for food from lake shores and rivers, eating everything it wanted. Its similarity to a gigantic wading bird is striking and although its modern analogue would be the spoonbill (as Duane Nash pointed out in an excellent post on Antediluvian Salad.blogspotantediluviansalad.blogspot.it/…), when I think of a big shorebird the thirst thing I've got in mind is obviously the shoebill. And when I think of a shoebill, this (link: i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2009/1…) is the picture I'm thinking of. Of course putting a duck inside its mouth wasn't very cool, so I thought that a generic deinonychosaur would be something more suitable. 
It's obvious that Deinocheirus hunted small vertebrates, but its fragile skull probably couldn't handle bigger preys like this one. This doesn't mean that the animal couldn't have tried at all and maybe it's just giving a ride to the maniraptoran, like the shoebill did in the photo (that's right, it's not trying to eat it - though it could). The idea was good enough so I gave it a go.
Sadly, during the scanning process lots of shadows and effects were lost so if I'll ever have the occasion I'll scan it properly. Still, it's not that bad - I think that the blue hue is a nice touch.
Maybe I'll do a coloured version with some changes (I'll sure add a background), but for now this is what you have.

Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art

The typical human being: unreliable, not smart, surely not handsome and hugely egocentric. Self-declared freelance "artist" and reviewer, also known with the awkward nickname "Smnt2000". Interested in geeky and nerdish stuff such as sci-fi, dinosaurs and comic books. 20 years old, luckly graduated from Monfalcone's I.S.I.S. "Michelangelo Buonarroti" and now an awful student at Trieste's University in the Language Department. Maybe.
