Platypterygius longmani 8

Well, taking the butterfly wings out of the coral didn't take as long as I thought it would, and why do simple descriptions of everyday tasks sound so weird?


I thought this was going to be a real trial, but then I figured out a shortcut. The shortcut inadvertently shifted the color relations between the background and the ichthyosaur in exactly how I was going to do it anyway. (Notice how the fins are just about the same color as the coral? The way the gray subtly harmonizes with the background?) That saved me a good chunk of work right there. One more color adjustment and then I'm done with it.
