Well life managed to get to me yet again: here is a little conceptual-ish art on the subject.
Bamboo tablet on Photoshop 7.

First a tutorial/diagram for the reconstruction of various soft tissue structures in Tyrannosaurus. Second a refined version of my IOW #22 entry. Third a sketch for this DSG challenge.
Angel Intheuk: I was like that for some time growing up. The first time I was presented with a mantis about 6 years of age I just freaked out.
Perhaps it was pertinent documentaries that now and...
Disc-winged bats: yep, those are suction cups on the wings and feet.
Barefoot: as the other people above I see nothing wrong with pteropodids. You might want to go out, cool off for a bit, and then inform yourself about the animal instead of overreacting to how it...

For some reason I got repeated visions of Oviraptor, Dunkleosteus, Thylacoleo and Panthera.
This face-eater is only ostensibly so. An ambush attacker, it tries to neutralize prey as quickly as...
I use a similar method to get proportions right from skeletal references when reconstructing dinosaurs or other prehistoric critters. It's pretty useful when you want to close or open jaws or move...

While we're at it, John Sibbick does a good deal of his work in gouache: http://www.johnsibbick.com/ (see the "About" section for details on his methods).

My apologies for taking so long in getting back to all who took interest in this thread: field work and finishing an IOW entry were more pressing matters at hand.
And the interest: I'm frankly...

It was sort of a ritual a few years ago: when I went to the local mega bookstore, I spared some time to go to the kids' section and peruse the dinosaur books just to see how things went on the...
SketchBook: Dracontes' Sketchbook Mk II
After a tentative testing of waters way back when, life got the best of me and I had to attend more pressing matters than a relatively serious hobby. Now free time is slightly more abundant with...

Rather simple drawing of an albertosaur-like theropod.

Thank you for dropping by my sketchbook.
Since previous people have been rather helpful, I can only say I find the felimorph's face a little too stylized for a big cat.
I think Machairodus is...
Pyroclasm00: Thanks :) Not so much as I'd like to but life has a tendency to get to one.
Anyway a random imagining of mine I have really no justification for... I'll leave the interpretation to...
SketchBook: Thanks :) Glad you liked those. Anyway more...
Thanks :) Glad you liked those.
Anyway more sketches:
A concept sequence for my idea of that what could the creature that mauled people in "Lost" be. Longaevosuchus novahebridensis is a relict...

Since posting here won't be so much a waste of anyone's time might as well present myself formally...
Earth and Life Sciences student, amateur artist with a penchant for dinosaurs, science fiction...
Since the artistic response will take a while as I am going overboard with scales might as well show some other of my tries at texturing scales for your evaluation.
Not a particularly original drawing, I guess. However, I registered here on a whim and because I'd like some good hard critique on my scale texturing technique. While I'm experimenting on it I can't...
