crocodile from Post by Dinomaniac crocodile from Post by Dinomaniac
Postosuchus crossing a stream.

Was trying intentionally to mimick style of Douglas Hendersons lithrographic prints. Always beeen huge fan of hes works especially the B&W ones. They have this interesting grain to them that lends interesting sort of realism to the pieces. Almost as if they were old photos. Anyways I was trying to figure out how to achieve something like that in digital medium.

First, top-notch work. Love it.

But it does strike me as a tad funny.

A decendant of a crocodilian crossing a stream in a way that makes it look like it dosn't want to get its feet wet.

Your Great^200 Grandfather would not be proud Postosuchus.

I'd really like this on my wall tho.

It looks as if you used a noise filter over the finished work, but maybe you used a separate layer for the filter. I'd be interested to know which.

Pirun hyvää jälkeä! Olisi hauska tehdä tämän kaltaisia kuvia Doylen "Kadonnut maailma"-kirjan hengessä, tyyliin vanhoja valokuvia Prof. Challengerin reissuilta:)

Beautiful scene (and including the new info about the posture of Postosuchus, right?). Personally I think that the style it's some similar to the works of Gustave Doré :)

It really does look like a very old photograph. IMO it has a very weird atmosphere, somewhat nightmarish or Edgar Allan Poe-esque even. Very cool.

In addition to looking Henderson-esque it also reminds me of a still from an old film, perhaps an Archosaurian equivalent of the "Patterson-Gimlin footage".

Stunning pic, the superb atmosphere, brought out by the 'grainy' look of the pic
