I can do Dinichthys (I guess it is the one called Dunkleosteus today?) and Archelon and the Nothosaur.
(If Uatu does not object...)

I will try to make something as soon as I start again to work on my mod, in a week or so I hope. It is good to hear about Underwater addon, I was last few months thinking more about aerial combat to be honest, and maybe even flying ships :) hoping to start playing with it too.

This would be great! Plus, you would actually be helping me out for the dinosaur add-on as well.

I've decided that I am not going to release any more add-on monsters database stuff without an icon for each monster. So, still a bit of work on the underwater add-on to go.

I am not completely happy with the colours, but the proportions fit quite well with DC, I think...

EDIT: Er... I just realized that the icon is two pixels too short... :(

That is really great looking. I quite like the color scheme.
If you find yourself wanting to do a plesiosaurus, I will use yours instead of the one I am trying to do. ;D

I will fix the icon and add it in. Thanks again!

I started with Archelon last evening and think I should be able to finish it soon. Nothosaurus will probably be easier...

I am not sure if Uatu was working on Plesiosaurus...

It seems that there are no really convincing reconstructions of Archelon - in the end, I made my own based on an acceptable photograph of a fossil... Actually, I had seen one myself a few months ago in a museum... :) I even consulted the old publication from 1896 to see what was known back then.

I wondered if I should somehow indicate the 4 bone plates on the ventral side, but I guess that these were covered by skin anyway...

Wow! This is really great.

I officially put plesiosaurus on the above list. I do recall Uatu talking about it, but thought that he did an elasmosaurus instead...I also didn't put the last one of my list in the post - I guess I didn't highlight it when I copied and pasted. It's the Tennodontosaurus.

Also I would like to mention, that with some very slight alterations, this is pretty much how I envision the dragon turtle (referring to your latest icon). :)

When I searched for Archelon images, I found several which indeed looked like a "dragon turtle" (at least I guess so...).  :o


EDIT: Was that a request for a dragon turtle? I can do it... :D How big (long) is it in meters?
EDIT2: It's Temnodontosaurus (I was not sure myself, but you mean the Ichthyosaur, right?)... I guess it might have been spelled differently earlier or misspelled in some publications so that it was added to DC with the -nn- spelling.

Exactly. :) I think they are even similar in size.

I just read a description, I fear the dragon turtle is quite longer - 240 px should be fine. :)

I just checked Uatu's homepage, but I fear what is shown there is not up to date - the recoloured Elasmosaurus, for example, is not yet there... I hope he can tell us soon what from the list he already has done.

I also have checked his site, and looked to see if there were any icons that were uploaded but not added to the web page. Nothing recent. I know he is very busdy right now.

These look pretty good. If I was any good at pixel art I'd gladly offer my help, but, alas, I suck at it.

Nothosaurus (also based on the skeleton). I made him around 4 meters long - maybe a little big...
