Acrocanthosaurus atokensis by MicrocosmicEcology Acrocanthosaurus atokensis by MicrocosmicEcology

Early Cretaceous (Aptian to Albian), North America

Acrocanthosaurus was a large theropod, with adults measuring nearly 40 feet long. Some fossil footprints in Texas may be attributable to Acrocanthosaurus or a close relative. 

The sky is a photo I took; the dinosaur, foreground and most of the vegetation are digital painting. Done in Photoshop CS6 with a Wacom tablet.

Wow, this is amazing! The background blends in so well with the sky photo. The Acrocanthosaurus looks really great. I love the atmosphere of this.

Magnificent creature.
And if the sky in the pic is a photo you've done a great job blending it with your digital painting as the pic looks so much like a single painting rather than a painting mixed with a photo.
