Digital painting / photographic composite

The above image is part of a 64x4-foot mural of Montana during the late Cretaceous, commissioned by the Houston Museum of Natural Science and the Judith River Foundation for the exhibit entitled "Dinosaur Mummy CSI: Cretaceous Science Investigation", which features the mummified remains of a Brachylophosaurus canadensis duckbilled dinosaur nicknamed "Leonardo". In this section of the mural, a pair of Brachylophosaurus canadensis forage among Magnolia bushes while a couple of Albertaceratops nesmoi soak up the morning rays in the distance. An Aspideretoides turtle hides in the reeds in the foreground.
