  1. Hello dear fellow forum members, I need some advice. Until now, I have built my models mostly trying to follow the reconstructions others have made, often in form of profile-view skeletal drawings. At the moment I am trying to build a model of Helveticosaurus, which is known from a rather complete, but heavily crushed skeleton. The one Skeletal reconstruction I can find online comes from a source that I do not trust (the one calling itself heretic), so I try to start from the fossil. In that online drawing, the lumbar ribs are showing a strong curvature of about 90 deg
  2. 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

    Walcott Quarry Vauxia gracilenta

    Six years ago I got the chance to visit the Walcott Quarry (see my longer post on this adventure in fossil trips) and while there I found this specimen of Vauxia gracilenta. Ever since I've wanted to make it part of my collection somehow, so this year for my birthday I decided to have a life reconstruction commissioned. Having seen the other fantastically detailed Cambrian models produced by @thorst, I asked him if he would be willing to reconstruct and 3D print the sponge. I drew an interpretation of the fossil and in no time he had it completed. A huge thank you for
  4. Back to recreation. This one doesn´t fit any of my other threads, so here I go. As I recognised that I already built or modified models of many of the existing orders of mammals I started to look which ones where still missing. I got: Metatheria: Thylacoleo Xenarthra: Thalassocnus, Tamandua, Glyptodon Afrotheria: Hydrodamalis, but no Proboscidean yet. Laurasiatheria: (Cet-)Artiodactylia: Syndioceras and loads of whales Carnivora: Odobenus Perissodactylia, Chiroptera and insectvora are still missing,as are some others. rodents: Ceratogaulus

    Guess the Origami Fossil

    My preferred medium of artistic representation, origami. Can you guess the animal it’s going to become? Here is the base (the initial form) and a picture a little further on with the legs of a Cretaceous creature I’ve started folding from a 24cm square of paper. The model design for this one isn’t mine, but I have designed a model before and hopefully will make some more of my own in the future. Hopefully the finished model will grace my shelf when I finally find one of these in fossil form. I hope you all enjoy, Benton
  6. I'm posting a current project in the hopes that it actually makes me finish it. I have a tendency to start several projects and set them aside for years. This Lepticitis was found in Wyoming in the late 90's. The initial prep was done by someone else (unknown) before the specimen made it to my collection. I've spent the last 5-6 hours under a scope removing glue, I would have almost surmised it was dipped in penetrant. It appears to have some abrasion damage as well, see the dorsal view of the skull above the orbits. I also took the opportunity to clean out foramen and do other various cl

  10. 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 o
  11. 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 r
  12. 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).
  13. 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
  14. 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

    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.

    Reconstruction

    From the album: Fossildude's Late Triassic Lockatong Formation Fossils

    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.
  19. 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
