    Grammoceras group

    It's been a while since I set pencil to paper, but I felt the urge a few days ago to try to duplicate one of my favorite ammonite groups in the collection. It's a grouping of 4 Grammoceras thouarsense ammonites found a few years ago in Évrecy, Normandy, France. And here's the original photo I copied it from.

    Coeloma sp.

    From the album: Sketches

    Paleogene, Oligocene, Chatt B, Velje Fjord Formation, Brejning Ton. Found 10 years ago on Mogenstrup beach at Limfjord, Denmark.
  3. It has been about 20 years since I last drew anything. Back in my teens, I had designs on being a professional illustrator and even had some modest commission work. But then I left it all aside to pursue academia and writing. Today I decided to see if I still remembered how to draw, and decided on testing that out with a quick 15 minute sketch using a 9B pencil. So it's a bit rough and sloppy... It's like having to relearn how to cursive write after decades of typing. Pencil strokes are not as controlled or elegant as they once were, but at least I seemed to have got it approximat

    An Echinoid

    So, here's one for @FossilNerd A Clypeaster humilis from the Pleistocene deposits at Hurghada, Egypt.
  5. I thought I'd try my hand with this Kemmerer Cockerellites liops this time around. This took me a looooong time because of the fine differences in shading, but I'm pretty happy with it. As you can see when compare to the original photo, I cheated a bit on it by filling in the missing parts of the fins.

    A Crinoid

    This time I've attempted a portion of a Scyphocrinites elegans crinoid plate which is a well-known and frequently available species from Morocco. I picked this one up for a song a couple of years ago. This took quite a while to complete.

    This time a bivalve

    It's been a while since I posted my last fossil sketch since I've been practicing on other subjects like trees and flowers. But I've just returned to my original passion and have chosen to try to duplicate an Actinostreon marshii oyster. These guys make for interesting models because of their bizarre shapes. In German they are nicknamed Kamm-Muscheln, because they remind us of a rooster's comb.

    A Scorpion

    This time I decided to give this Eurypterus lacustris the honor which Malcolm gifted me after a trip to Ridgemount. I used a bit of artistic licence and added the missing appendages. It looks like it's out jogging

    A Trilobite this time

    I was asked recently by @Top Trilo when I would do a trilobite, so I decided to take up the challenge with this Hollardops mesocristatus from Morocco which I acquired a while ago. It's preserved in a somewhat concave position, which made for an interesting point of view.

    My first serious attempt

    I used to like drawing when I was a teenager, but I've hardly done anything along that line since then. Now, having been inspired by Kane's artistic talent, I decided a while ago to pick up a couple of sketching methods and have spent the last month or so on and off practicing various techniques and trying my hand with things like apples, balls and vases. Last week I figured it was time to get down to something more up my line, so of course I picked out a nice ammonite which I wanted to attempt to reproduce on paper. No easy undertaking, I must say. They have a heck of a lot more shadows and s

    dinosaur mans drawings

    Since it’s winter and I can’t go fossil hunting until spring I have been drawing, so I made this to showcase my drawings instead of individually making topics like I did before. I just finished this one.

    Dinosaurs from this week

    Hey All, A couple Dinosaurs from this week. @Bobby Rico motivated me to get back into watercolors/ painting again and unfortunately the results are not what I would like. The watercolor Aucasaurus sports multiple mistakes and errors, one being the lack of realism in the overall painting. The predators mottled coloring also caused problems as I strove for a dappled sort of camouflage. Its obviously time to get back to painting. The other dinosaur, Torvorsaurus, was drawn in pencil as a perspective exercise. While the piece lacks detail, the movement in the Torvosaurus creates a sens

    Edestus sp.

    This is a sketch of Edestus, a 300 million year old shark from the Carboniferous. This is one of my favorite Carboniferous creatures, because it's a shark with scissor jaws! This was a fun project because remains of edestus are limited to jaws so I have the creative freedom to make the animal look any way I'd like. To make the skull I incorporated some goblin shark elements. I feel like a goblin shark with scissor jaws would be quite terrifying! I did however make some changes because I did not want the end result to end up looking just like a goblin shark. The eyes are inspired
  14. Hello. I'm currently working on a basilosaurus sketch as a project. The sketch is based off of Basilosaurus cetoides. I wanted to add a few fish to liven up the whole drawing, but I'm not familiar with late Eocene fish from the U.S. east coast. Would anyone be able to help me out?
  15. I have an artistic side to myself (I have an honours degree in the Arts and not science, shame) and Ive always wanted to learn to draw/ paint dinosaurs ina similar fashion to the below sketch of a Prognathodon. Anyone have any knowledge of Dino art, their favourite artists and perhaps know how to draw like this sketch by Dmitry Bogdanov?

    Drawing of Simolestes vorax

    Over the past few days I've been drawing up another paleo-reconstruction. After some time conflicting on which animal to draw, I settled on the rather under-celebrated pliosaur Simolestes vorax. S. vorax is a Jurassic pliosaur related to Liopleurodon, but is estimated to grow up to 10 meters in length, rivaling the size of the more famous pliosaur Kronosaurus. Heck, at one point there were even some theories that Simolestes was the owner of a gigantic lower front jaw dubbed "The NHM Symphysis", which was believed to be from a pliosaur exceeding 15 meters in length! Again, I used a Huion

    T Rex sketch

    I just saw this part of the forum! My 5 yr old is super dino obsessed. I stick notes/drawings in my kids' lunch boxes each day. Hers is ALWAYS a dinosaur. Sometimes it's just a cartoony doodle, but last night I had insomnia, so I spent quite a bit of time on this, trying to shut my brain down. T Rex is her favorite. To give credit where credit is due, I based this heavily on an illustration by Rudolf Farkas since my tired mind couldn't muster much creativity.

    Allosaurus Illustration

    Hey everyone, Here is an illustration of an Allosaurus I just finished. I used ink on Bristol board. I plan on doing many more illustrations of other prehistoric animals similar to this and I'll be sure to post those on here too. My two passions are paleontology and art and I strive to learn as much as I can about both. If you want to see some of my other work in the meantime you can visit my website www.mikeosheaart.com. Thanks for looking! -Mike
