Finally finished it! Thank you, Scientific Illustration, for posting the work in progress shots - I figured I should absolutely submit the finished piece.
Beautiful! thanks for the submission Ashley! I loved seeing the WIPs, it’s fascinating to see the process:

Dino Discoveries: Acrotholus audeti
Meet the oldest boneheaded dinosaur in North America, and possibly in the world. Acrotholus audeti was identified from two solid bone skull caps found in southern Alberta, Canada. The bony domes are 10 cms (4 in) thick. The researchers who describe the new species this week in Nature Communications say their find hints at the possibility of more discoveries of small, plant-eating dinosaurs to come.

Centrosaurus by Julius T. Csotonyi
I have been working over the past few days on this drawing of the skull of a Pachycephalosaurus.I am fairly happy with the result but I know it can improve alot. Also the scan really dosn’t do the actual illustration any justice. I had to really battle with photoshop to stich the image together as the scanner did an awful job, but that teaches me to use an a4 scanner to scan an a3 image.
