Ichthyosaur V2

I think I had the Ichthyosaur looking too dolphin-like. I started thinking it's unlikely that it could curve it's body downward like a dolphin, as the dolphin, being a mammal, has a horizontal tail fin, and an Ichthyosaur had a vertical tail fin like fish. So I redrew the bugger, trying to get more of a sideways action while still keeping some good leaping action. I don't know if it's any better, but I think it's more accurate. Comments welcome.

  1. I like this one because he is looking directly at the eyes of the Ichthyosaur and also the it's going in the direction that the page will be turned.

    I'm loving the whole concept here. Very cool and educational.
