Second Attempt at Keichousaurus Hui
Muffinsaurus posted a topic in Paleo Re-creationsI really wanted to try my hand at a keichousaurus hui again. I took a lot of inspiration from marine iguanas. I work in digital. I took the feedback that I got on my last one and really tried to apply it all here. I also had the opportunity after I posted that last one to go and examine 2 actual specimens in person. I even got a rather spotty replica on that trip (Not that there wasn’t an abundance of references to find online). As before any input is welcome. I’m still very new to adding meat to bones and I want to get better.
Sculpting and 3D printing Devonian shark teeth
ThePhysicist posted a topic in Paleo Re-creationsI recently got started sculpting digitally, and with this new hammer I am now excitedly looking for nails!

Microfossils in general are difficult to appreciate without a microscope, so I figured it would be fun to sculpt a few. My first subject is a Devonian Phoebodont shark tooth that I thought looked neat enough. Besides being some of the oldest teeth I know of (380-390 Ma), they look very different from the teeth of modern sharks (except for those of the frilled shark).
A little of my son's art work
fossilsonwheels posted a topic in Paleo Re-creationsWe had a few requests to see some of the art work my 17 year old son Carter is creating for our education programs. Due to the fact that I am a dad first and he is still a senior in high school, we will not have a lot of finished art before summer. I do not let him spend much time on this stuff yet. He was okay with me posting a few early versions of the sharks we are covering. Educating kids and getting fossils into their hands was not the only reason we started this. He wants to be an artist and I support that. I am paying him for his work and he has a title, scientific illustrator. He has h
1st ever attempt to draw anything.
ElToro posted a topic in Paleo Re-creationsHi! After seeing some great paleo art here I thought I'll give it a go. Here's a little drawing I knocked up. Its the first drawing I did since about 6years old. Its only a rough sketch but its supposed to be an Amplectobelua symbrachiata chasing an Elrathia trilobite. I tried to make it is as anatomically correct as I could. Down to the correct number of body segments and grasper podomeres. (the spots are artistic license!)
