Here is a new artwork for my paleoart series. This my second work of Hesperornis art. I have again used the more duck-like coat of feathers that I made for the last one simply because I think it is more visually interesting.
Hesperornis was an aquatic bird that lived at the time of the dinosaurs. Unlike modern birds, it had teeth in addition to a beak. Its name means "western bird"
The usual disclaimer about my paleoart: When it comes to paleoart, the images I create favor 'art' more than 'paleo'. While I try my best to depict animals as accurately as possible, I'm make no claim that they 100% scientifically accurate. The same goes for the environment I depict them in. I am primarily interested in creating aesthetically pleasing images. Scientific accuracy comes second
