|Crude concept art sketch from some months ago, based|
on a prehistoric fish. Now serves as "starting point" for
comparison to later works.
|Some things that I like on DeviantART (or used to like but haven't removed yet )|
|This is a selection of Mæstro-approved deviants on here. Everyone on this list shall, once I get the Lazarus project (think a nature park with all kinds of pre-historic life, or a real-world Jurassic Park with better fences ) off the ground, shall be able to visit for free for life because I enjoy their work so much. List is not exhaustive.|
The "Big Three" of palæo-art on here, IMHO. The dinosaur on the left does CGI, the fuzzy thing in the middle does traditional hand art, and the giant robot or wizard or whatever (I can't tell at this resolution) on the right does interesting coloured depiction of really any fossil animal that you've heard of, and then some. The former and latter both do illustrations for Wikipedia.
For being one of my patrons. Although my focus has shifted from when you first came aboard, my manga girl OCs are still based on fossils
The only person on this list who is not a palaeontologist, this man draws manga gynoids (female robots). In more than one thread, we have a role-playing game (one of which has went on for the better part of a year by now) with an interesting plot that's building as we go. He is also one of the reasons why I've decided to learn manga in the first place. At one point, I had as a joke in my signature a question on what the hybrid of a koala-bear and Dickinsonia would look like; this man took it upon himself to look up what the pre-Cambrian fossil was and was able to give a response that's even better than what I heard from some palaeontologist friends of mine. Once the gynoids are built in real life, I'll be bringing an Archaeopteryx for Saiaka
