  1. Qianzhousaurus sinensis drawing

    Hi today I decided to draw a quick drawing of a Qianzhousaurus sinensis here you go. Enjoy!!
  2. As I've posted a lot of trilobite drawings here already, I thought it would be an interesting challenge to take up @Doctor Mud's suggestion to draw a Tumido. I've never drawn a crab before, so this was unfamiliar terrain for me. If I needed the additional challenge, I did this with a sprained thumb. After consulting a few resources, I laid it out and rendered it as usual with pencil. Time: ~12 hours Materials: Pencils (HB, H, some 3B), blending stumps, standard sized white paper.
  3. Tyrannosaurus rex 2.

    Hi! Again with Dino drawings! Here is the latest one, the Tyrannosaurus rex head.I've done this one for my friend from China, but i wanted to share it here as i always do that.It's complete with details. Hope you will enjoy Pozdrav!
  4. Canis lupus - Wolf/Vuk

    Hello! It has been a while since i posted some of my drawings.This is a New one and it's a majestic modern day Wolf (Canis lupus). I drew This Wolf for one girl Who loves them so much. It's also my crush Hope u Will like This one! Kind regards, Darko
  5. I haven't posted in a long time. I used to draw the occasional prehistoric beast but looking back, they always left a lot to be desired. Anyway, I have honed my craft and have since started a drawing degree. I don't do much paleo related drawings as the accuracy needed to be really good scares me! So while I've tried to keep mine reasonably accurate, they are always just for my own enjoyment. Here's a few I've done over the last year or so. First off, something special. This ichthyosaur skull was drawn from life in the Lyme Regis Museum. It was drawn with Jurassic squid ink that was extracted from a fossil found in Lyme. Not easy to draw with as it's quite pale and I couldn't get the contrast I usually like, but a very cool thing to have done. Next up we have a Promicroceras ammonite drawn in brown ink. An Allosaurus skull drawn in ink and copic markers. Quite pleased with how this came out. And finally one I did for part of my degree, my Apoderoceras ammonite. This was done in pen and coloured pencil and was drawn from life. This piece is as accurate as I could make it to the original and was drawn full scale. Hope you like them! Edit: Ignore the order, the pictures came out in the wrong order!
  6. My Trilobite Drawings

    Well, a snowy Sunday means a bit of relaxing and puttering. I figured I'd put pencil to paper and draw one of my favourite bugs. I tried to ensure each segment was unique, while also capturing the cracks that run through it when one finds them. Slowly but surely I'm getting the hand-eye coordination I had 20 years ago when I used to draw all the time.
  7. Zdravo svima! "Hello everyone!" Again with Ice Age animals! Now with my favorite animal, the Cave Hyena or Crocuta crocuta spelaea.I've done it in my way,also using the spots of one cave painting where Cave Hyena has spots going from the head to the middle of the stomach.And,yes the ear has been bitten by other predator and now scar is visible.I hope u Will like this one Kind regards, Darko
  8. Megaloceros giganteus

    Again with another one,its Megaloceros giganteus or the Irish Elk.. However i tried something new to add in the background..Something like a swampy background. I dont like it personally but that was only a try..I hope to to improve and fix that in the future. Enjoy
  9. I figured it was time to do a little learning and went to find a diagram of a crab so I could learn all the parts of a crab instead of just prepping one out and putting it on my shelf. I spent over 40 minutes and only found one that really wasnt very good. I am hoping that someone here can lead me to a really good diagram? Thank you to everyone. RB
  10. Icthyosaur drawings

    Tried my hand at two different styles of drawing an icthyosaur. Don't exactly remember the species I was going for but I remember that it and the fish are both from the Jurassic. this one is a bit more realistic. and this is a cartoony representation.
  11. Fossil Art

    If this is too off topic for this forum, feel free to remove, but I’ve been participating in Inktober and doing an ink drawing a day throughout October. Ive been nature journaling in ink, and decided to do some illustrations of the fossils we’ve found recently. I figured if anyone could appreciate them, then you all could! Here’s the first fossil I’ve done so far. If you are interested in seeing more, I will post them below as I draw them.
  12. After stuffing my face into tons of scientific articles on Late Cretaceous Lamniformes, I decided that I'd want to draw some sharks. Here's a drawing of the two infamous sharks of the Niobrara Formation Cretoxyrhina mantelli and Squalicorax falcatus as partners-in-crime. I've made the Cretoxyrhina ≈6-7 meters and the Squalicorax ≈2 meters. As 2 meters would be the same size as a very tall 6'6" human, you could imagine the Squalicorax as the tallest ordinary human and see how much bigger Cretoxyrhina is. I've always felt like Squalicorax would commonly accompany predators like Cretoxyrhina to "help" strip bare the latter's kill (Crow sharks are indeed inferred by scientists as opportunistic feeders or scavengers), almost as if Ginsus had them as little cronies. Also, the common name Crow Shark sounds somewhat similar to crony. Now what if we started a new nickname for Squalicorax as a crony? That would be hilarious and maybe realistic. EXTRAS
  13. Hi everyone Here is again something new! It's a Utahraptor,and I don't want to say anything else except that I hope that u will like this one. Enjoy! Darko
  14. Hi everyone! I found one of my older drawings today, it's a Pleistocene North American Jaguar! One of my favorite Prehistoric cats.If anybody is interested feel free to send me message Darko
  15. Megalonyx jeffersonii

  16. Zdravo I just finished with Woolly Rhinoceros...Hope u will all enjoy! Darko
  17. Otodus obliquus tooth

    Hello everyone again! Here is also Otodus obliquus shark tooth that I have finished two months ago.I hope u will enjoy Darko
  18. Otodus Obliquus recreation attempt

    Hey all, I have recently been interested in the Cretaceous shark Otodus obliquus and I attempted to recreate the shark with a drawing. I used a mixture of looking at some skeletal pieces and verts and computer generated images to try to draw from, and I used a strange curving pencil stroke to accentuate the shark's movement.I dindn't really try to shade this one and just kept it slightly consistent and am thinking of adding the detailed shading in the revised drawing. I definitely need some pointers in its overall body shape. Hope y'all can help.
  19. Rock with plant "drawings"

    Hi! I've found that rock on a cliff near some fisherman houses by a beach here from my town. There are some vulcanic rocks on the area too. Here are some pictures of the rock. I found those "plant marks" strange. Could that be a fossil?
  20. While I was cleaning up my room, I came across this drawing of a rather elongated and serpentine Tylosaurus in my seventh-grade school binder. Thought that I could give it some light here. This drawing is unfinished, but I'm not an expert in handling antique documents.
  21. 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 by the Mako shark. I think the huge eyes make for a creepy looking animal. The body is also mako inspired. The most frustrating step in this drawing was making the shadows. I wanted the white belly to have a shadow but if I made the shadow to dark it would appear as a dark colored belly. Overall i I like how it came out. I think the skull may need some work but that's why I'm posting here so I could get some opinions!
  22. Albicetus oxymycterus drawing

    Here's a new paleo-reconstuction I drew since the past two days of Albicetus oxymycterus, which is a mid-Miocene raptorial physeteroid none of you have probably heard about. Special thing between this little Moby-Dick and city I live in is that although it was not discovered directly in PV, it was discovered very nearby in Santa Barbara in the same formation and sublayer that exists here which highly suggests that it also swam here 16-14 million years ago. I tried to make this as scientifically accurate as possible using the resources I had, which included the entire 2015 paper establishing the genus Albicetus. I mainly used a pre-existing sketch of Aulophyseter morricei as body reference (which the paper stated is morphologically most similar to A. oxymycterus except for dentition) and used the paper's skull reconstruction for the head. I used a Zygophyseter-like head as the paper stated that the supracranial basin of the skull does not elongate to the end of the maxilla like that of Zygophyseter and Acrophyseter, which both posses snouts as a result. For the body size, I calculated the skull-body ratio by dividing the mean and lower condylobasal length estimates to the total calculated length, which came with either a 1:4.6 or 1:4.9 ratio. (Unrelated to the drawing, the 1:4-5 ratio is based on using a body formula for Physeter and Kogia spp.. If you use the upper Livyatan melvillei /Zygophyseter varolai estimates as reference, a ratio of 1:5.9 and total length of 8.6 meters is calculated) I don't know any of the advanced formulas some of you guys probably do know about and simply used division, so my calculations might not be the most accurate ones. I also put in a diver for scale this time! EXTRAS
  23. Penn Dixie Drawing!!!

    Hello, fellow TFF-ers! With the permission of our moderators—and provided I follow a few rules and guidelines—I am pleased to offer up a drawing exclusively for the members of TFF. On behalf of Penn Dixie Fossil Park and Nature Reserve, we are collecting names and e-mails for people interested in joining the Penn Dixie e-mail newsletter. This info may be sent via personal message to me—all submissions will be governed by the Penn Dixie privacy policy, (which can be viewed HERE), and will be used exclusively and solely for the purpose of the e-mail newsletter. On May 1st, we will be drawing randomly from the submitted names and giving away five copies of Amadeus Grabau's Geology and Palaentology of Eighteen Mile Creek as reprinted by the Hamburg Natural History Society. Amazon Reviewer Thomas Buckley writes: “This book has excellent descriptions and images of all the fossil fauna you are likely to encounter at Eighteen Mile Creek, the Shore of Lake Erie, and the Penn-Dixie quarry…In addition to being excellent visually, it is also an easy read. Grabau writes in a more modern prose, not in the vernacular of the late 19th century. If you are collecting in these formations, having this book is a necessity. You will not be disappointed. Especially for the price.” Details about the book can be found HERE. The selected winners will be posted on this thread on May 1st, at which point I will only ask for mailing addresses for the purpose of shipping out your new book! Thanks, and best of luck! -Jay Wollin Lead Educator Penn Dixie Fossil Park and Nature Reserve
  24. Took to pencil one of my favorite Trilobites, that just so happens to hail from my immediate area of Western New York. Arctinurus boltoni is a Silurian Lichid Trilobite from the Rochester Shale. I found my first Arctinurus on my first visit to Caleb's Quarry Midddleport on a field trip in 1995. A very lucky find it was. My drawing was done with 2B and 4B pencils on textured paper. I have included a picture of my real Arctinurus.
  25. 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?
