The head is based on a combination of photographs of the original Marsh skull and one of the triceratops at the LACNHM. The body I did mainly from memory, but most of the proportions are based off the Sneckenberg museum mount.

Congrats!

I've always thought T. prorsus was the more attractive of the two known Triceratops species, but most people seem to like T. horridus better. Glad to see the former getting some artistic attention!

I thought so, too - too many T. horridus out there :) and thank you.

You're welcome!

Oh, I have no doubt it was. Wish you to get your work in a dino book next time! (although I am sure that another paper would be equivalently cool too) :)
