  1. I purchased a unsightly Franken-Basilosaurus tooth a few weeks ago for pretty cheap. Seeing as though i don't have $400-700+ to spend on a nice basilosaurus tooth i saw potential and a fun project in this cheap ugly duckling. Yes, it's Moroccan. It came with the typical glue/sand mix covering it, filling all cracks, voids and roughing out transitions of deceptive franken composites. How it came: Ok, first things first. Clean it. I used acetone, a razor, a needle, a tooth brush and my engraver. Hours of delicate work later i finally see what i'm working with. After cleaning: Yeesh, this might be more work than i thought...... And someone composited a incisor or canine tooth tip on the top of my premolar!! Bwahahaha!! Ok, composites need to go. Bye, bye Next i noticed this was not lined up correctly when it was glued back together. So i grab my trusty dremel tool and proceed to carefully saw this baby in half. Then i removed most of the epoxy/sand glue from each side. Continued.........
  2. Good morning. I live in Oregon and I am looking for people that can “Professionally” do fossil preparation and restoration. I have specimens that are still in their field jackets. I have some specimens that just need some touch up. I have contacts in other states that are more than qualified that I have used in the past. But it always makes me nervous shipping specimens anywhere to be honest. I have had femurs that were packaged extremely well and still showed up snapped in half. Or on the smaller boxes for like teeth or claws end up missing. To say the least, it’s very frustrating and nerve racking! So what I’m looking for is someone local that will do top end work. And I would prefer someone that will have references or even people on here that can back their abilities up from personal experience. I 100% understand that when you want top quality, you’re going to pay a price for that and that’s ok. I also understand that quality takes time to achieve. So just to be clear, I’m not one of those guys that’s going to drop off the specimen on Monday, and then call you on Friday and ask if it’s done yet. It gets done when it gets done. Obviously If we get to the sixth month mark, I’ll probably reach out to you to make sure everything is fine. So now for keeping the admins happy. I think you need to PM me your information and not publicly post it because they don’t want to have people doing any business advertising If I understand them correctly. But please feel free to publicly post that you are sending your information my way and that way If anyone on here has used your services, they can speak up. I think that part is okay per the admin. I’m sure they will let us know shortly if I was wrong. Thank you everyone ahead of time. Sincerely, J
  3. Hi everyone! As I have mentioned several times, being a 3D artist I am trying to move into the field of paleoart. Recently I have started modeling Ceratosaurus nasicornis in 3D, and I really want to make it as accurate and plausible as possible. Here is what I have got so far: a basic model done in 3ds Max. After this I am planning to take it to ZBrush and add more muscle definition, sking wrinkles, scales and other fine details. At this stage this is just the base and I would like to share it with you guys in order to receive some feedback from those who know their dinosaur anatomy. Did I get the shape and overall structure right? Constructive criticism is more then welcome, pretty much this is what I am asking for here. 1. Mesh 2. Body 3. Perspective 4. Back 5. Top view 6. Head close-up
  4. Hello everybody, This is my first post and first piece of artwork I would like to share and, hopefully, receive some feedback. I do 3D animation and rendering for living, but paleontology is my life long interest and passion. Here is my 3D reconstruction of Cambrian trilobite Olenoides serratus that was a common member of the famous Burgess Shale biota. I actually live just 250 km apart from the famous Burgess Shale quarry (and 100 km from Albertan Red Deer badlands rich with dinosaur fosslis).
  5. Here are three gorgeous megalodon teeth that @RJB collected over the years as a fossil vendor/collector. He asked me to restore them for him, and I was happy to take on the challenge. Here are the photos of the before and after. I hope you enjoy! -Matt
  6. So I drew a paleo-reconstruction of a noteworthy but sparsely-known apex predator Temnodontosaurus eurycephalus, which was believed to be the top apex of the Early Jurassic until the rise of proto-pliosaurs like Rhomaelosaurus. Unlike its famous squid sucking sister T. platydon (metaphor, not literally), T. eurycephalus had a thick skull with deep jaws and large robust teeth suggesting a macropredatory diet and probably fed on other ichthyosaurs, plesiosaurs, and anything else that it could swallow (Also, growing lengths of over 30 feet, it probably could swallow everything other than another Temnodontosaurus) This is actually my first time finishing a paleo-reconstruction using only a pen tablet and photoshop (All my other drawings were either unfinished or done on paper). I used a Huion 1060PLUS drawing tablet and Photoshop CS6 to draw this. Took at least 3 hours to draw, and I heavily referenced the holotype skull to draw the head. Turned out pretty neat, but I don't know if I should color/shade this.
  7. I found this article interesting. They said trilobite like but not sure that they are ancestral https://www.livescience.com/60434-bizarre-cambrian-creature-gets-detailed-reconstruction.html

  9. Bronze ammonites

    I cast yesterday bronze ammonites. Nothing serious, just for fun. I use true ammonites for the shells,the head and tentacles were modeled in wax.
  10. Reconstruction

    From the album Late Triassic Lockatong Formation

    This is a reconstruction of the late Triassic coelacanth, Diplurus newarki. Reworked by me. (reverse black and white) FROM: FOSSILS AND FACIES OF THE CONNECTICUT VALLEY LOWLAND: ECOSYSTEM STRUCTURE AND SEDIMENTARY DYNAMICS ALONG THE FOOTWALL MARGIN OF AN ACTIVE RIFT. Peter M. LeTourneau1,4, Nicholas G. McDonald2, Paul E. Olsen3,4,*, Timothy C. Ku5, and Patrick R. Getty Available HERE.
  11. soo, im currently trying to reconstruct some pleistocene fauna (mainly felines for now) and i have almost no problem with anatomy, muscles and such, but i do have a problem recreating the fur color, pattern and length. im currently working on the smilodon populator, and i really have no idea what to paint it, in one side, it was a south american cat, all modern cats that distribute the area are spotted and yellowish colored (ocelot, jaguar). but on the other side, it lived in the savannah, which "allows" all kind of fur patterns (plain/lion, spotted/leopard, etc). and it was a realtive of smilodon fatalis, which lived in north america. there are no remains of fur and no cave drawings of smilodon from what i have found, so if anyone knows any articles which comes up with speculations about this kind of stuff please link them here, im also having a hard time founding pictures of animal skeletons in a neutral pose (standing still) so if there is a collection of these kind of images i'd love to know about it thank you very much and sorry for bad english. i'm not sure if ive put the thread on the right forum so let me know if i made a mistake.
