Deep in the rainforests of Late Cretaceous Mexico, a Tyrannosaurus rex tackles a giant Olmoceratops for dinner.

"Olmoceratops" isn't a formally named dinosaur taxon yet, but I based it on a giant ceratopsian horn which was uncovered from the Olmos Formation in northern Mexico around 2011. It ran almost a meter in length, longer than any other ceratopsian horns (even Triceratops!) uncovered at that date. I thought it was such a cool finding that I wanted to depict the creature as it may have looked in life, battling against the tyrant king of dinosaurs himself.

I still find this strategy bit useless. It's like grabbing the opponent by his hands while having no feet to kick. No way to get hit, but also no way to kill. It's also a massive risk of impaling your mouth with those things and for a T-rex or practically any animal an infected mouth injury is a death sentence. I think they went for the neck more.

While the layout and design of the whole piece in general is well done, the shading could've used some work. However, as it stands now, it's a good illustration but that had so much more potential for growth. Hopefully you work out some of those kinks next time and who knows what kind of awesome art you can create from there on out? All in all, keep up the good work and be sure to check out my art as well!
