Paleo Art Stumbled Upon The Internet
« on: May 20, 2016, 01:42:52 PM »
i think it is about time that we have a thread about great paleo art we come across the internet and post them here. please state the genus (and species if the info is available) and credit the artists who created the illustration or sculpture. we are also open to discuss the shortcomings/merits of a certain work and whether it is highly accurate or flawed in certain ways.

Great idea for a thread! :)
Found this one by chance on Tumblr. It's one of the best pieces of PaleoArt I've seen. I love it when prehistoric animals are portrayed with the behavior and looks of modern animals, it makes them so much more real. Sometimes you see images of dinosaurs, and they just look like fantasy monsters in a fantasy world, but they were just animals doing normal animal things. The one below shows three pliosaurs, probably Liopleurodon or Pliosaurus, during sunset. One is being groomed by small pterosaurs, while two in the background are ''dancing'' like humpback whales do.

I am well versed in paleoartists and keep up with many of them. The particular style, I like the most is Fred Wierum and StygimolochSpinifer

I like the idea of a pteranodon diving like that, but is it possible for a pterosaur to have taken off from the water?

Well, there are some papers on that subject, but I'm not sure what the current theories about pterosaur movement in water are. Anyway, it sure looks cool! :)

There are a few studies that i know have looked into this, but it definitely depends on the species and how pelagic the lifestyle was, along with forelimb mechanics. I seem to remember multiple blog posts by Mark Witton on the subject, and I remember that ornithocheirids seemed to have been able to, I don't know if Pteranodon was mentioned at all however. I'd imagine because of it's lifestyle it would have been a good adaptation to have.

Thanks,

I have just come across this article on the internet.
Inevitably, underlying instabilities begin to appear.

Wow, love the homemade look of his dinosaurs. They have such a whimsical feel, like they stepped out of a children's story book.

Stock art by LakeSpirit3. Is it scientifically accurate? Nope. Is it absolutely freaking adorable and am I jealous of those little kids? Hell yes!

The march of so many dinosaur genera, from the smallest to the biggest.
