I recognize these! They're from a rather old book I have. Most of the book is very outdated by now, but the mammals aren't that bad.

Just be warned that the dinosaurs are very outdated, with almost all theropods being completely naked and some even in tripod pose.

retro paleo art is always a delight for me (as long as they're pre-1990) :D
(and i think i have the book after all. different version/same content and illustrations)

I really like this shot from WWD.

"3,000 km to the south, the massive comet crashes into Earth. The light from the impact fades in silence. Then the shock waves arrive. Next comes the blast front. Finally a rain of molten rock starts to fall out of the darkening sky - this is the end of the age of the dinosaurs. The Comet struck the Gulf of Mexico with the force of 10 billion Hiroshima bombs. And with the catastrophic climate changes that followed 65% of all life died out. It took millions of years for the earth to recover but when it did the giant dinosaurs were gone - never to return." - WWD

Not scientifically accurate, but still awesome.
Jurassic Park is frightning in the dark
All the dinosaurs are running wild
Someone let T. Rex out of his pen
I'm afraid those things'll harm me
'Cause they sure don't act like Barney
And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend
Oh no

I remember Mark Witton being quite tranchant on the Papo Quetzalcoatlus when it was announced, maybe he's a little bitter because he didn't feel Mr Seo borrowing the Dimorphodon stance as an homage but rather as a rip-off?

I guess the pose is a little similar! But, Mark's one of the leading experts on pterosaur life appearance; that Quetz was bound to hurt his sensibilities regardless of personal biases regarding artistic property  ;D

I reckon Witton would not have been as bitter if the Papo Dimorphodon had mimicked it in accuracy as well as pose.
In the kingdom of the blind, better take public transit. Well, in the kingdom of the sighted, too, really--almost everyone is a terrible driver.

I came across this Dimorphodon by Julius T. Csotonyi.
I don't know if you've already had this painting in this thread, but it seems to me, as a big inspiration for the CollectA Dimorphodon, so I thought of leaving it here.

Definitely inspired by that, colours and position. I wonder if Csotonyi cried out for some kind of recognition, like that DeviantArt guy did with Safari.

I don't buy that one bit. The colours are nothing alike and the pose is fairly generic.

I'm not sure if book art counts for this list, but I did stumble across this book because of the internet!

Jason Chin's "Grand Canyon" has some nice (non-dinosaur) paleoart depicting the prehistory of the Grand Canyon. He conveys the concept of Deep Time in a rather clever way; each fossil the girl finds on her hike literally becomes a "window in time", with a cut-out in the page revealing the animal in its original environment on the next page! It's a fun book, and one of the better presentations of the full scope of natural history in children's non-fiction literature. (You can read a longer review of the book here: https://dinodadreviews.com/2018/08/11/grand-canyon-jason-chin/ ).





It's also got several nice diagrams of the canyon's stratigraphy:
