Finally... getting around to getting a handle on the little bastards.

As usual I've no aspirations to scientific-caliber accuracy, but I use as many references as I find useful (photos, skeletals, and reconstructions.) Made the posture a little more erect as the extreme sprawling thing looks weird. But that's just me. Personal project, not peer reviewed anatomical study :P

When i do a more finished one I'll probably check out some hippos as well.

I'll have a Sivatherium up next.

They were fully aquatic like cetaceans and sirenians

Yeah, kinda. Altho I forget how large they were, would have to look it up again when I redraw it.
