These are the latest from my project. The first is a Tiktaalik roseae, a possible missing link between fish and tetrapods.

This is unfinished and is a group of Americaspis in a possible feeding/mating group.

I am trying to portray these in as lifelike a situation as posible so please any critiques/ideas are welcome.

Have niether at present, but Acanthostega falls within the theme of the display. Thanks for the tip! Will be using crinoids in some of the pics but one is going to be a very different view.

This is the finished version of the Americaspis.

I am taking notes here. I have about three drawings in progress and the great suggestions you all are giving me are being incorporated. Thanks!

All your drawings are of creatures that are alive; much better than the stiff, stilted "specimens" too often portrayed. Wonderful work!

Here are the latest. On the Crinoid pic I could not find a good photo that showed the mouth so I faked it and added small trilobies to mask my guestimate which (hopefully) isn't too far off... :rolleyes:
