Mosasaur Sketch
BLAAJBSIXJSJSKD I haven't posted anything here in so long. Or been around much anywhere actually. Things have been changing a lot. I've moved and everything's different and I'm working full time. But on the plus side I feel the absence has given me a chance to reinvent myself. Developed without fear of others seeing what I make. (in short I drew a lot cried a lot). But in the end it's done wonders. I think I've actually got a STYLE, dare i say it. My scanner was also out of commission for a while but I've fixed the issues (DAMN YOU WINDOWS 10). So to recap, art, here now, more active, hope youre glad to see me around again, etc etc. Oh and yeah this is some sorta mosasaur. I think he's judging a shark or something he sees behind him, Idk. Also guest appearance by seaweed.

Dig Dug
Sorry for the long hiatus on posts here. Deviantart has been giving my usual browser trouble for the last few weeks, and I've finally worked out the problem. Anyway, this is probably my favorite piece I've ever made thus far. Here is a Globidens dakotensis attempting to grab some bivalves it dug out of the sandy sea bottom it frequents. Globidens is a peculiar Genus of mosasaur as it's dentition (and associated stomach remains) all seem to suggest a diet of primarily bivalves and other hard shelled molluscs. I really tried hard to capture the varanid like build mosasaurs had, while keeping in mind the streamlining needed in a marine environment, and also mantaining consistency with what we know of scale variation in mosasaurs. I also put special emphasis on varying the pose I used, as the tail is seen at a different angle to how it typically is displayed. This was purposeful, as I also wanted to show off the fact that mosasaurs, (like most other marine animals such as Cetaceans, Ichthyosaurs, and Fish) possess a large caudal peduncle at the base of the caudal fin. This is something that isn't generally rendered in mosasaur reconstructions, but should be included as this is a functionally important part of mosasaur morphology.

Then and Now 2015-2016
The Velociraptor on the right was the first piece I ever uploaded here that I really liked. I spent a whopping total of about 15 minutes on it at 3 in the morning when I couldn't sleep. This was a whole YEAR ago already, jeez. I knew nothing about anatomy, about art, about paleontology, honestly anything really. The image on the left show where I am now, and was made in the exact same amount of time. I've come a long ways, or at least, I FEEL I have. And I owe you all that. I am not exactly an optimistic person, I deal with depression and self confidence issues just like a bunch of other people out there. So thanks for being there, liking my art, making me feel welcome here. Just knowing that someone likes what I make and wants me to improve does more for my confidence than anything ever has. So yeah, thanks. :D Here's to another year.

Peace, Fish.

My my, all sorts of interesting new revelations in the last few weeks here. A new specimen of Liaoningosaurus paradoxus has been found in the Yixian Formation. What is interesting about it, is that fossilized fish remains were found within it's stomach region. So this is A). A Carnivorous ornithischian, B). A Semi-aquatic ornithischian. The specimen even shows special ventral armor plates, obviously to protect the stomach region from harm. Seriously cool. Check out the abstract here: en.cnki.com.cn/Article_en/Tota…

Anyway, that's the educational portion over with again. Now onto the main part of tis journal- I done been tagged. Again.

Obligatory rules again here:

1. You have to post ALL the rules
2. Each person has to share 13 things about themselves
3. Answer 13 questions asked to you, and invent 13 questions for tagged people to answer
4. Choose 13 people (STILL NO)
5. You legitimately have to tag 13 PEOPLE (I SAID NO!)
6. You CAN'T say you don't do tags
7. Tag-backs ARE ALLOWED (plz no)
8. YOU MUST DO THE JOURNAL ENTRY! NO COMMENTS! Unless you're talking -ABOUT the Journal Entry
9. You have to finish within a week. If you don't finish in time, you have to do whatever le creator asks
10. Be creative with the title. You can't mention you got tagged in the title, but can in the Journal/Journal description

And now for the standard 13 things again.

1. I've been practicing landscapes lately.

2. Landscapes are hard. Who knew?

3. I'm literally freezing right now.

4. Totally hyped for Rogue One rn.

5. Found some belemnites the other day.

6. Am I really only halfway through here? Damn.

7. I'm broke as hell.

8. I really wish I had a competent computer. And a Wacom.

9. I'm working on a game! That's cool.. I guess..

10. I think I have too many things going on now :D

11. I think you all make too much goddamned amazing art. It's hard to favorite it all!

12. I really hate a lot of my old art. I was a noob a year ago.

13. Will never ever ever draw a Spinosaurus. That's just asking for it.


And now for the questions from my dude :iconvelociraptor1801:


1. Watercolours or oil paints?

Watercolors. Though it has been about 6 or 7 years since I've used them.

2. Favourite generation of Pokemon and why?

3rd Gen because....  SHARPEDO

3. If you were given the supplies to survive for one year at any time period, what would it be? (e.g the Permian because yada yada yada).

The mid Triassic. Hang out with all sorts of interesting reptiles.

4. Turtles or Tortoises?

Turtles.

5. Do you think we will ever find another planet with complex life?

No. And if we ever do, it's likely it will lose it by the time we ever reach it.

6. What's your favourite species of bird?

The Shoebill.

7. If you could become a master at any one skill, what would it be?

Well, Art.

8. Favourite restaurant?

Little Ceaser's.

9. What prehistoric Pokemon would you like to see as a new fossil Pokemon? P.S I might try designing it so think carefully...

I'd love seeing a Eugenodontid Pokemon. Like a Sarcoprion or Helicoprion looking thing.

10. What would the story and genera be for a dinosaur novel you wrote?

I've written and trashed so many novels I don't even know anymore. They'd have to be unique.

11. Could armadillos technically be a species of fruit?

If you're a carnivore and can't eat plants.

12. What species of dinosaur do you think could've carried some kind of venom?

It's possible but unlikely that any of them could have really.

13. Why do you think I'm so bad at coming up with questions?

I think everyone is.

I am an 18 year old dude who tries his best to draw some dead animals in a lifelike manner. (Some people would call this paleoart) In particular I've been trying to specialize in Marine Reptiles. I'm happy to take requests but will not accept all of them. Feel free to explore my gallery, and I hope you like what you see!
