Thank you I really appreciate your opinion and the time it took out of your day to type that critique. It is supposed to mainly be out of proportion and comic looking and yes your right it looks like half horse half dinosaur. I guess in my opinion either you like it or you don't.  Oh and your knowledge of the anatomy is impressive.

I apologise for not posting a critique earlier, simply ran out of time and had to get ready for work.

The entire piece is of questionable consistency including your chosen palette. It looks as if you seem to have the same problem as I do as far as using contrast appropriate palettes when spriting. Unfortunately I'm pretty colorblind so it literally takes me an extremely long time to come up with anything I feel is something that I can be proud of. Perspective wise, the dinosaur is unproportionate and very much reminds me of a horse at first and second glance. What dinosaur is it supposed to be? (just curious)

  • The back legs are extremely awkward (look at your knee joints). The Femur (thigh bone) is proportionately longer than the Tibia & Fibula (shin bones) in pretty much the majority of animals that inhabit and have inhabited this planet, including the dinos. Double check the leg thickness on a dinosaur, there isn't anyway they could walk on stilts.
  • The tail doesn't give the impression that it is in the right perspective, even less the correct proportional size in contrast to the size of the dinosaur.
  • [clicky] The neck and head [clicky]

But I even think from a cartoonish type theme that it'd still win the Mr. Ed award. I'd advise that you revamp the dino a bit, maybe colour it? It'd look much more interesting.

Critique is fine as long as your nice about it. Besides I didnt mean that I only wanted glory.   Maestro, if you had no critique then you didnt need to comment ...plain and simple.

Would look way better if you add a little darker pallette. You could also make the beck a little bit more realistic.

I believe any type of critique is considered to be more than welcome when an artist submits any work to this website. If you are one of those only looking for glory, then don't submit...plain and simple.
