Playing with some anatomy, trying to see how lips would work on ceratopsians. Skeletal reconstructions based off Scott Hartman’s work. Looked at large mammals for inspiration; I can’t think of any extant animals quite like ceratopsians, so my gut isn’t really sold on exclusively using crocodylimorphs or birds for anatomy musings.

I suddenly realized that I have a ton of sketches I’ve never bothered to scan. This is an old one but I still like it, though I drew it without reference so please pardon all the inaccuracies.

Styracosaurs are probably my favorite ceratopsian …but it’s hard to pick just one favorite, honestly. There were so many really cool ones.

WENDICERATOPS
“Wendy’s horned-face” (Named after Wendy Sloboda)
Late Cretaceous, 79-78.7 million years ago

Named in honor of Canadian fossil hunter Wendy Sloboda, this early centrosaurine has a lot to say about ceratopsian evolution. Early ancestors like Nasutoceratops and Diabloceratops had no nasal horn, but more derived examples like Centrosaurus and Styracosaurus show evidence of nasal horns up to two feet long! Wendiceratops is the missing link, exhibiting the earliest known nose horn of any centrosaurine. But in a remarkable twist, the row of hooked hornlets around its frill bears a striking resemblance to Kosmoceratops and Vagaceratops – two chasmosaurines! This is fascinating to eight people.
