I know this is for your son, but do you think a scene with Appalachiasaurus and hypsebemia or hadrosaurus would be cool? (Or maybe something smaller like claosaurus or lorophotodon)
Did you know if you drink the juice in a magic eight ball you can see the future!?!

Yes as I recall they had originally pegged it with powerful 3 clawed arm but then suddenly did a 180, I supposed based on some cladistic analysis. Which would be interesting as it would put appalachiosaurus and whatever predicated dryptisaurus in the same general area where they would have had run-ins.

But in general I wanted to cover several time periods/animals in the state
Chronologically:
Cameroceras
Edestus
Appalachiosaurus
Megalonyx

All predicated by the fact that when I was growing up no one could really tell me what animals lived close to home. As interesting as the dinosaurs in Texas or Montana it is very rewarding to be able to talk about your on home in the grand scale of time.

I remember really wanting to make Tennessee species for the park.  There just isn't much except in the western end.   I did try a  few times to talk about the Southern species to people visiting the park, I said Appalachiosaurus and remember getting laughs, they thought I made it up.

A group of Hypsebema play a part in the story actually, as does encountering nodosaurs and a dienosuchus

Beautiful watercolours, Brandem. Based on those I'd say your book deserves publication so it can be appreciated by a wider audience! One thing you could improve on is your backgrounds as they seem a little static, but they do their job well (which is more than can be said for most of mine!)

Hey thanks, I totally agree on the backgrounds, itís my first time really using watercolor so Iím super focus on not screwing things up in the late stages of an image, I think the background will get better when I can start worrying less about that.

I congratulate Brandem you on knowing how to paint as you do it is an art and faculties that very few privileged possess and the same in the sculptural aspect.

I use prismacolor watercolor pencils, theyíre pretty nice, watercolor pencils are pretty flexible in general for things you can do with them.


And thanks shonisaurus, I think what I make is alright for the amount of time Iím able to put into it.
