Brochoadmones milesi
Early Devonian
colored pencil on heavy-toothed paper

This one looks so much like a knife fish  :)

You caught me! The coloration was partially influenced by a reticulated knifefish, although I brightened it up a lot.

By the way Halichoeres What drawing techniques do you use? For example oil on canvas, digital illustration, etching in your paintings. This Devonian fish with its colors has left me surprised by its beauty.

Thank you, very kind. It depends. I do everything in pencil first, usually a 2H technical pencil, though sometimes I use a 3H if I know that the end result is going to be light colored, or an HB if I know it's going to be really dark. I use archival pens for black-and-white work, usually Pigma pens with several tip sizes. I use Derwent watercolor pencils for most color work, though I sometimes supplement with marker if I want large expanses of very saturated color. The Brochoadmones is entirely watercolor pencil. The Tethymyxine was mostly pencil but involved some gray and pink marker.

This week's "Sunday Fish Sketch" challenge on Twitter was to draw a coloring book page, so I drew a selection of animals from the Carboniferous Bear Gulch fauna from Montana, USA.

Clockwise from top left:
Discoserra (an actinopterygian)
Damocles (a ratfish, I think so named because it has a "sword" hanging over its head)
Harpagofututor (an eel-like chondrichthyan, possibly closer to ratfishes than to sharks)
Bairdops (a small, shrimplike crustacean)
Lepidasterella (a sea star)
indeterminate productid brachiopods
Carbosesostris (a polychaete annelid)
Rainerichthys (an iniopterygian ratfish)

That would be a pretty great page! It goes perfect with the coloring book aesthetic

That coloring book page look really well made. I like it!

Killekor
Bigger than a camarasaurus,
and with a bite more stronger that the T-Rex bite,
Ticamasaurus is certainly the king of the Jurassic period.

With Balaur feet, dromaeosaurus bite, microraptor wings, and a terrible poison, the Deinoraptor Dromaeonychus is a lethal enemy for the most ferocious hybrid too.

Thanks, guys :) I definitely learned from this exercise--I would compose it differently if I were to do it again!

By the way, your love of Halichoeres ichthyology, has always emerged, that is, of all life. I mean that your love for ichthyology has been vocational since childhood? What are you most passionate about extinct or existing fish? I understand that your life is a life devoted to the study of marine fauna, independently that I know you are an ichthyologist. On the other hand I congratulate you for these magnificent illustrations.

Bear Gulch was very, very strange!

Thanks for the kind words. I have been interested in animals since I was very young. There is a story in my family about me talking the ear off a friend of my parents about aphids, and he, not speaking English well, thought I was talking about elephants, resulting in great confusion (I was about 4 years old and think I did not yet know the Spanish name for aphids). I started focusing more on fishes than other animals in college because they are so diverse and, in my mind, somewhat underappreciated. I study modern freshwater fishes professionally, but I definitely find the marine ones fascinating as well, and I often wish I had gone into fish paleontology instead.
