I love to draw textural 'maps' of animals' surfaces.This is another old drawing I dug up. It is drawn with Prismacolor pencils using the grey colors and black. I used a snapping turtle skull as a reference for the beak.

*drops jaw* This is incredible. It’s almost real. The scales and the shading is great. It’s really uncommon to see dinosaurs here... Like your sculptures too... *contiunes to look at artwork*...

Excellent detail, the scales are great. Love the swirls, and growth marks and wear. Almost like a portrait.
