Treed by painted-wolfs-den Treed by painted-wolfs-den
An Edmontonia drives a Troodon up into a tree.  I'm not sure if it's is being curious or aggressive but the Troodon is having none of it.   I really liked the idea of making the heavy armored dinosaur more dynamic than they are usually shown but I don't expect him to be any more agile than this.

I'm also enjoying adding more variety to my environments and not doing forests full of perfect trees but rather suggesting greater age and history to the surroundings.  Including a stilt rooted sycamore who's nursery log has long since decayed away, a smaller companion who has bent to reach better light due to it's larger neighbor and a burled redwood.  I also added a cluster of shade tolerant hemlock who have taken advantage of the space opened up by the now vanished titan that supported the mature sycamore.

Marvelous! I wish the scan was a bit larger; there's so much rich detail.

This is a really pretty piece! I like the way it is telling a story, almost as if it was out of an educational children's book.

Impressive, particularly with the details in the bark and the Edmontonia's hide. Kudos!

Terrific work!  It really is nice to see an ankylosaur displaying some complex behaviors. :)

Thank you so much!  Ankylosaurs seem to have missed out on the new wave of paleoart so I thought they could use some love too.
