Starting to look like an Ankylosaur

Been toying away on the Minmi. It is finally starting to feel like I might be getting it a bit right.

There is still work to be done, but do let me know what you think. I've only added the bigger scutes to the body itself, not the limbs, and I'm not sure if I need more on the head or not.

Oh well here it is.

I have a big post on Ankylosaurs in art coming up on ART Evolved.

That's one of my favourite carols. "It's beginning to look a lot like Ankylosaur, everywhere you go..."

I don't know if you've started work on them yet, but there's recent evidence that ankylosaur hands were more tube like (as in sauropods) instead of having discrete fingers spread out.

Incidentally, there's always the "no more than three hand claws, even if there are more fingers" rule with archosaurs.
