Finished little Ankylosaurus piece :) :

I love it! I really like your deinocheirus as well! It really shows how Dinosaurs can be fun and stylized, while being accurate at the same time. In my opinion the more accurate and diverse dinosaurs are way cooler than the pop culture ones.

Thank you, Kayak! ^-^  That's my goal with my dino-art!  I try my best to make them accurate, but still retain my own artistic style.  My hope is to get more people interested in dinosaurs, aside from just getting their information from sources like Jurassic Park, haha.  (though honestly, I do still enjoy the movies, but for different reasons ^^)

I definitely agree with you; the diversity in what we know about dinosaurs now is amazing.  :)

Aw, too cute  ^-^ I love the little ankylosaurus! I have deep respect for anyone who can paint backgrounds, since it's something I'm rather bad at :)


My chickens as the raptors they seem to think they are.  :P

Thanks, Mamasaurus! ^-^ Adding backgrounds is something I've sort of forced myself to do over the years, because I personally prefer art where the subject is in an environment, instead of just on a blank space.

A couple new things:

A tiny Minmi sketch:

A Parasaurolophus singing at night:

Absolutely love your style! So whimsical and they look like they belong in a children's book. I looked through your deviant art and absolutely love the sea-goat picture you did!

Nice artwork, particularly the honking night time Hadrosaur.  Well done.

That parasaurolophus is gorgeous (always been one of my favs since they "sing"  ;) ).  I never thought I'd want to hang a dinosaur on my wall, even though I love them.  But I'd actually consider buying a print!  :)  Don't think my hubby would appreciate that too much, so it'll have to wait until I get a little art studio space for myself.

Hehe, I just love how charming and heartwarming your work is.  That's what I try to do in my illustrations, and your work is really inspiring.  :)

Thank you, everyone! :))

Kovu- glad you like the sea-goat pic; I really loved working with those beachy colors. :)

Mamasaurus- thanks again for the kind words! I actually don't offer prints of my art, so your walls are safe, haha. I'm sure you could whip up something lovely to hang up, though. ^^

@Paleona I really admire your style. You definitely should release a children's dinosaur book. As a graphic designer I would love to help you put it together. Send me a message if you're interested!

Thanks for the kind words, kreativek. :) I'm not currently looking to publish my artwork, but I'm flattered, all the same!

Got dinosaurs on the mind again, so here's a little Styracosaurus sketch I drew yesterday~


(see the non-stretched version HERE)

Hoping to do some more little dino pics soon. ^-^

What do I have to do to get the chance to purchase a shirt with that wonderful Olorotitan on it? Actually, all of your hadrosaurs and stegosaurs are desperately needed. Your art is so colourful and whimsical and innocent and messy in all the right ways.  ;D
The Styracosaurus also looks great, you backgrounds are so full of suggested details, itīs really intriguing!

Thanks so much~! I really love working more messy like this :') In a world where realism seems to be the dominant look for paleo-art, I'm happy people enjoy my more colorful dinosaurs!
Ahh, sorry, I actually don't sell prints/merchandise! For me, art is my passion, not my job. ^-^

I never thought I'd say this about an Ankylosaur, but that Euoplocephalus is cute!
