We know them, we love them, the retrosaurs. Our understanding of dinosaurs hasn't always been the best, and that has produced some fantastic reconstructions. Post your favorites!

Here's a classic painting of Triceratops by Charles R. Knight.

I've always loved this Brachiosaurus painting.

I absolutely ADORE retro dinosaur art, especially the environments that the animals used to be placed in.

Here's some Gregory S. Paul.

A T. rex pack attacking a Triceratops herd.




2 Albertosaurs against 4 Anchiceratops.



And some sort of tyrannosaur against a Torosaurus.

Taking after the artistic representations of dinosaurs from Charles R. Knight, Ray Harryhausen has created an impressive body of retro-saur artwork that not only worked for his field of animation but also had a believable dynamism to it.

Listed below are some drawings of his for One Million Years BC, The Valley of Gwangi, an unmade Sinbad film, and another project that got derailed which unfortunately I can't remember its name.

The one with the Trike impaling that small meat eater is from Creation, the unmade Willis O'Brien movie. Or that's what I've read in a book. The final picture I have never seen before, but the rest I have. Mostly from the book, The Art Of Ray Harryhausen.

I actually own that book too!

While, I could be wrong, I don't think there is a sequence mentioned in Creation (which I do know about thanks to the King Kong 1933 blu ray) that depicts a Triceratops killing Ceratosaurus. Unfortunately, I don't have the book with me right now so I can't confirm the final picture's origin.

The Trike killing the Ceratosaurus was from One Million B.C. Creation was supposed to have a mother T. rex killing a Stegosaurus and having it's kids taking the first bites.
