Nicely done, John. Did you take a drawing course or are you a natural talent?

Lovely detail! The 4B on textured paper gives it almost a kind of stippled effect. Well done! :)

I am awed by anybody with artistic talents. If I tried to draw a trilobite it would probably look like a stick figure and if I tried to draw a stick figure it would probably look more like a trilobite. :P

 

I've had to rely on woodworking or photography to express my artistic side--making heavy use of the beauty of wood or the bounty of nature's many subjects to be the raw material that I could fashion into something pleasing to the eye. We have many artistic members on this forum and to see members like you and Charlie @fossilized6s create wonderful images using techniques and tools that reach back thousands of years simply fascinates me.

 

 

Cheers.

Thanks for the accolades. Drawing is like fossil collecting; you start with baby steps before you learn to run. Being too critical of your attempts, will result in quitting, not improving. If you didn't find what you wanted on your very first fossil hunt; did you quit? Of course not, you're here at the Fossil Forum today aren't you.

Nice work, John.

For me it's not the discouragement that keeps me from doing things like this, it's lack of ambition (and lack of space!)... I know anything of quality takes a lot of work/time. It's like the old maxim, "I do 3 types of job - cheap, quick and good. You can have any two: good+quick won't be cheap, good+cheap won't be quick, and cheap+quick won't be good."

BTW the fossil pygidium you show seems to have a broader unfurrowed margin than the drawing - is this a difference between the outer and inner surfaces or just variability between individuals, or what?
