Galloping Triceratops FINISHED by Supaslim Galloping Triceratops FINISHED by Supaslim
I was originally going to give him gorgeous dark brown and yellow stripes, but I realized it would be incredibly hard to animate.

For those wondering why my triceratops has no cheeks: I am of the belief that they had full beaks. There are no muscle attachments in the area to suggest fleshy cheeks, and as they are far more closely related to birds than mammals... I agree with the idea that it's more likely that their beaks extended back all the way.

interesting, but one thing don't look as movable there, the spine. (in the scetch version is that easyer to see, here is it just something that look not s natural as it should)

YOu only move the shoulderbone, but the most land animals move the spine whyle they are walking - some more some less - i just belive at this speed this kind of dino moved it, too

Triceratops would have been very stiff bodied, so not much motion in the spine. I agree that something's off, though. Maybe I'll revisit this some day and fix it. Thank you!
