  1. So the critters are a ways off, but here if the completed back, mid and foreground for a test painting of Miocene Nebraska. This is roughly .75m square. Final mural 3m high by 6m long. Critiques welcome. Specimen suggestions appreciated. Because my employer thinks I only sleep ten minutes per day apparently....

    Fish paintings

    I'm working on some new fossil fish paintings and thought I'd share them here. I'm trying to work my way through the Green River formation fish first, though I'm sure I won't paint them all. I've only done two so far, but I'll add more as I paint them. The quality will vary, I'm sure. Here's my take on a Priscacara. and of course a Knightia: I've started on a diplomystus, and will post that soon. Thanks for looking. Oh, for those interested, I'm using gouache paints, similar to watercol
  3. Hello! I have considered entering a competition on instagram. The competition requires you to create an accurate reconstruction of a lesser known prehistoric fish. The problem is that I am not so knowledgeable on prehistoric fishes, and I cannot name one that I haven't seen art for. I would like to study a fish, and hopefully create an accurate (or semi-accurate) reconstruction of that fish. Here is the instagram post containing the rules for the contest. (Feel free to participate if you are up for the challenge.)

    Rock to fossil decoration

    Wasn’t really sure where to put this but thought it was worth sharing. A couple days ago I found this concretion and then I decided to paint it to try to make it look like 5 dinosaur eggs (only a lot smaller, they’re all under an inch long). I’ll probably add to this with more rocks with fossils painted on before, After,

    Display Ideas - Hell Creek

    Hi everyone, I'm making a display of Hell Creek Formation for a Tyrannosaurus Rex tooth I'm getting. Though it's a replica, it's a really pretty one, and making an equally gorgeous display for it would just be fun. I envision this. I'm wondering how I might sculpt the hills and ridges. I thought about cutting cardboard boxes up into shape and hot gluing them to a wooden plinth. I would then paint it and cover it in sand to replicate the features. My only concern about that is how I would carve the features of the ridges - those fine details - into a box. I
  6. As I keep digging through the literal tons of old geology and earth science supplies in the store room, I came across a large box full of about 30 of these old Ward's Science Education fossil sorting kits. They are all injection molded plastic, and were pretty boring. The boss told me to "throw.that.junk.out. NOW." which of course means I loaded the entire box into my backpack. Legitimate salvage is legitimate salvage. Anyway, in preparation for turning many of our replica casts and such into display pieces for teaching (and to make the earth sciences lab look cool...I decided to p

    Fossil Art. Need opinion

    so, for those of you who do not know, I am a sumi e artist. Sumi e Is a Japanese ink art. I basically Drew one of my fossils in this style, and I would like an opinion. Does it look like a Phareodus testis? It was actually quite fun making a fossil on paper.
  10. I don't know that this fits exactly because these are not my works of course... but I love old paleo art. Click on the thumbnails for the full image. I had the first one printed as a wall canvas and it came out beautifully. Do you have any to share? I always want to add to my collection.
  11. Just wanted to share this neat piece of art my fiance' made me . Its needle felted .
  12. A couple of weeks ago, I was in Barnes & Noble bookstore and spotted this book in the science section. It's too close to Christmas to get it for myself but I was content to look through it there. I was familiar with the artwork of Jay Matternes (and I'd seen the cover of the book two months before it was published in October) from various publications especially a small souvenir booklet I bought at the visitor center at Agate Fossil Beds National Monument back in the 90's. In that little book there are mini versions of murals he painted for the halls of the Smithsonian along with recons
  13. I dug up a Devonian Favosites coral recently with a group of corallites on the bottom of the colony that looked like tiny cliff dwellings
  14. A few months ago we welcomed a new member to the forum from Los Angeles, CA. @samtung like several members here has the kind of unbelievable artistic skills that I'd give my right arm for (I am left handed ). In his introductory post he showed some of his paleoart that he'd been working on: I noted with great interest that one of the creatures he displayed in that post was a nice Pachycephalosaurus wyomingensis. I've always had a soft spot in my heart for this hard-headed dinosaurian since I was a kid. I doubled down on my interest in this species when my wife and I were fo
  15. 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 wa

    Your Favorite Paleoart

    Which are your favorite pieces of Paleoart? Something that captured your imagination when you were younger? Something that accompanies your fossil collection? My personal top three is all ''water themed'', in no particular order: From The book of Great Sea-Dragons , this art by John Martin even if totally inaccurate striked me for the grim and dark atmosphere and apocalytical view. Another inaccurate one but these brachiosaurus appeared in a booklet I had when I was a kid and alwas hit my imagination and now I can appreciate Burian's artistic skills.
  18. I bought a small set of paints recently in a medium I had never used before, gouache. It's a lot like watercolor, but more opaque. I've always liked the look of watercolor but I've been more comfortable with acrylics. I thought I'd give the gouache paints a try, and I think I'm going to like them. Here's a Knightia I painted today, with an attached fossil Knightia. At least I think it's a Knightia. It's not preserved terribly well. I'm planning on painting some more knightia, probably a school of them, then a Diplomystus and maybe move on from there. It should be interesting.
  19. Today I have visited an exhibition of amazing work from an artist Zdeněk Burian in the Zoo Dvůr Králové (Czech republic) and since his work was mentioned here a couple of times I have decided to post a few photos and share this great experience. Zoo D.K. has the biggest permanent exhibition of Burians work in the world with 147 original paintings in its collection. Why Zoo? In the seventies Burian was approached by founder of the Zoo and close friend Josef Vágner to help him put together an exhibition where people can see prehistoric life of our planet. This way the visitors of the Zoo will ge

    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.
  23. I am in the process of creating a micropaleontology themed artwork., and even after having received a good amount of expert help, I feel overwhelmed by the subject and would like to get more opinions on my composition. The piece will consist of a series of disc-shaped layers, each of which will bear microfossils from a different geologic time period. These layers will be stacked like a roll of coins, so as to look like a drill core. The attached image shows a part of my research spreadsheet, including images and descriptions of each layer. If anyone here has any thoughts on the or
