PROJECT CARNUFEX C.
A LATE TRIASSIC NORTH AMERICAN CROCODILIAN ANCESTOR
 HOVER OVER THE IMAGES
This illustration was done back in 2015, when paleontologists from the New York state university and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences published their paper on the find. The triassic and terestrial living crocodilian ancestor Carnufex Carolinensis is meant to have been the top predator in todays north Carolina, before the dinosaurs arrived at the continent. The only illustration at the time showed the animal without its habitat (see link below). My intent therefore was a visualisation which shows the animal in the dramatic landscape it would have lived in. The illustration went through a lot of changes in composition and mood, hence the various executions. This was meant as a personal project and hasn't yet been published.
