by Owen Weber

Plateosaurus was a prosauropod from the Late Triassic Era, about 214-204 million years ago.  It grew up to 33ft long and weighed up to 8800 lbs.  It lived primarily in Europe, mainly in the German/Swiss region, where over 100 skeletons have been found, many fully formed, which is very rare, especially for Triassic Era dinosaurs.  Plateosaurus was a very important find in developing the evolution of the sauropoda clade, known for being very large, walking on four legs, and having very long necks.  Plateosaurus shows that originally they walked on two hind legs, and were quite fast when they needed to run from prey.

I loved painting this piece.  I wanted to depict the Plateosauruses coming out of a misty atmosphere, combining my love for dinosaurs with another genre that I love; horror.  Plateosaurus is not a scary dinosaur, but I felt they were a good fit for the atmosphere I wanted to create.

This painting is 9″ x 6.5″, oil on paper mounted to masonite, and unframed.
