Metriacanthosaurus concept by beastisign Metriacanthosaurus concept by beastisign
Here is a concept art of two Metriacanthosaurus.
this shows a male and female in size comparition and coloration.
I wanted these two to seem like the "tigers of Jurassic Park"
That's why they are pure black and yellow, and orange.

I might revisit it with my new style, as it is usually something I dont usually do.

I dont even know what that book looks like. XD
But I'm guessing it has a Metriacanthosaurus on the cover.

Also, interesting to add, this is Jurassic PArk fanart right? Well this book just so happened to be one of the main inspirations for the original JP novel.

I would start to look for it on amazon, but I already have a book done by greg paul, which is doing a fantastic job already.
It's the Princeton Field Guide to Dinosaurs.
Marvelous book, got it mainly because of Greg's work.

Well, A Yanchuanosaurus, but that was regarded as a Metricanthosaurus at the time: Heres a link to a pic of the cover:[link]

1988 I think, but surprisingly ahead of its time. Although most of the drawings suffer from the old bunny hands epidemic, there are a few very impressive draeings that still have a lot of credibility. All the small theropods are feathered, archaeopteryx is said to be a ancestor to the dromeaosaurs rather than an early bird, Spinosaurus is said to be a big baryoynx, all stuff that as only taken seriously around a decade after publishing. There are a few wrong points, such as the statement that Segnosaurs/Therizinosaurs are derived prosauropods, and a few out of date classifications, but you will still find it quite impressive how far ahead of other books at the time this is.
