Vintage art, circa sometime in the mid 90’s. This is the second version of a piece depicting a predator chasing two Leaellynasaurs across a river. (Acrylic on Board)
The first version had an Abelisaur, back when some research indicated a closer tie between South American and Australian fauna in the Early Cretaceous, until Allosaurus seemed to be a safer bet. Now I’d need to do a version with an Australovenator , feathered of course!
I was already stubbornly feathering my Leaellynasaurs for cold conditions back then, despite no direct evidence of any insulation.
Apologies for the poor photography…
Not my best work.. and probably heading upwards of 15 years old! But fun to post during a busy patch.
