Dino Detail

I've been working diligently on a series of dinosaur books since November. I'm eager to show off my latest work but feel compelled to keep the illustrations under wraps until the books are published. But I can't resist an occasional tease; here's a small portion of a larger illustration featuring the tail of a well-known dinosaur. Care to guess which dino-type?

Those of you that have seen the final art are not allowed to "guess".

I am going to guess tyrannosaurus because that what you drew for your funny snowman one.

You're such a tease. Thanks for sharing a peek at what's to come. I'm guessing Barney The Dinosaur. No? Aw Shucks...

I have no idea what kind of critter it is (the Chili Children are girls and were never much interested in dinosaurs), but the smoke in the background is great.

Love the color & details on the tail - I know very little about dino's but can't wait to see the rest of him (her?) Guess the grandbabies will be learning about Dinosaur's soon.

That tail belongs to a Stegosaurus!

No, I'm kidding - a Stegosaurus has a thagomizer at the end of it's tail.

Davis Freeberg is correct - that's the back-end of a T. rex! Davis wins some bragging rights.
