Sketch

A doodle done at work. I was visualizing the quarry as it was in the Upper Mississippian. This is mostly stuff Ive found there. A quick doodle and simple paint with paint.net.

i wonder what would happen if i published this... B)

this is a redliichid trilobite tessellation, possibly paradoxidae, or trilos similar to redlichia. worked on this for 7 hours. the photo seems to make the drawing look lighter than usual... :mellow:

btw, it has a screwed up axial lobe :P the green cheeked trilos are males, the females have red cheeks...

Print that vertically in a small pattern on silk, and make neckties out of it!

I'd buy one, and I haven't worn a tie in over 12 years.

Here is a trilo I did to use as a main accent on my website. It is no species in particular.

Yea...just freehanded half of it on a sketch pad, scanned it, traced over it in GIMP, cleaned it up, and then flipped it to get the other half.

Hi.

This isn't exactly a sketch, but I thought it might fit in here anyhow.

A while back an aquaintance of mine purchased an Ammonite from me and made a gift of it to his wife. As it turns out, she is an artist and she liked it so much that she was inspired to make this painting which she just presented to me today. Needless to say, I was more than pleasantly surprised to recieve such a gift.

All of the amazing artists here at TFF deserve another round of applause! :goodjob: :bow: :goodjob:

I was glad to see that Roger posted a beautiful ammonite-themed painting given to him as a gift. Years ago I purchased this woodcut print by an obscure artist from the UK. It is pencil signed and entitled "Fossil World" and hangs proudly over the bookshelves in the library section of the fossil room. At least I can finally contribute to this thread even if it was store bought.

Haha..... if you gave me a paint by numbers coloring book I would still mess it up! :o:wacko::P

I've only recently started drawing. I didn't draw much ever since I was a Kid, so I had no idea I could draw anything more than just crude pictures, until I started drawing dino head reconstructions. Here are the 3 pencil drawings of the sort that I did so far:

- Carcharodontosaurus head, my first drawing of the sort. It looks pretty amateur-ish, almost childish now, but it was a start.

post-7253-0-36303700-1343476999_thumb.jpg

- Allosaurus head. The improvement is quite easy to notice

post-7253-0-19846400-1343476978_thumb.jpg

- Tyrannosaurus rex skull. I took a photo of Samson's skull as the base for my drawing, but it's not meant to be a drawing of this very specimen, it's meant to be a somewhat general reconstruction, so I took a few liberties with it. Now I'm using it as the base for my in-flesh reconstruction :)

post-7253-0-31438800-1343476991_thumb.jpg

I hope you like the drawings, I'm only a beginner...

edit: I re-uploaded the pics, I added my signature to them, which I forgot beforehand. You can use them if you like, just ask me first :)

I figure this belongs here:

post-6808-0-80755100-1343436165_thumb.png

One day, years ago, I got tired of my crinoid references being scattered all over heck, so I drew them on a sheet of paper with a felt-tipped pen in one sitting. It's a miracle I didn't mess up and have to get the white-out....

Later I scanned the images and rearranged and cleaned up the individual crinoid drawings and digitally added the names.

-earbones of a Pliocene whale

-proximal humerus of a bony toothed bird

-maxilla of a large T. rex

-life restoration of the head of a Miocene walrus, for a manuscript in review

-life restoration of Diplodocus

-life restoration of the early whale Remingtonocetus

-life restoration of a Miocene auk, Miomancalla

-skull of the Sei Whale, Balaenoptera borealis
