So the new house and work have keep me way busier than I had expect. I finally got around to getting my prep room set up for the most part and got around to starting some prep. Here's what I started with. Then the progress of getting it there. I had an oopsie as my engraver kinda got away from me doing some damage. Finally I finished it off with a clear matte finish to help stabilize it and make it pop against the matrix.
Hoooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we are at last, into Adam's Silurian. Thanks for looking. First up is the Lower Silurian or Llandovery and I begin with a problem. I posted this one incorrectly in Adam's Ordovician as it had got it's label muddled up with an Ordovician Favosites I had that has vanished in the move here, but is being replaced by kind forum member @Herb Anyway, this, I remember now I've found the correct label, is from the greenish Browgill Formation, part of the Stockdale Group from a cutting near Skelgill (Skelghyll) in Cumbria, Northern England. It seems to be a tabulate coral, but I can't find any listed for this location, only mentions of small, rare, rugose corals. It has the star shaped corallites of a Heliolitidid, but seems to be tightly packed together like a Favositidid. A couple of species of Palaeofavosites seem to be close and are a bit star-shaped,, but anyone know any better? @TqB@piranha hmm who else? The coral bit, an external mold, is a maximum of 3.5 cm across and each corallite up to 2 mm.
I thought today would be a good day to stay inside, relax, keep warm and draw again. A friend requested a particular Trilobite drawing. The subject this time is Trilobite Dalmanites limulurus, a Silurian bug from Middleport, NY. The graphic is more like a technical illustration than a cartoon drawing. It came out how I hoped, using textured paper, a 4B pencil, Charcoal pencil and an eraser.
Hello y'all fossil heads!! Is there anyone out there that can help me obtain a good recognisable DALMANITE trilobite HEAD? Doesnt have to be mint or even complete as long as at least one eye is visible I gladly trade :-) Hope someone can help me out Cheers Pat
