Baryonyx walkeri by Gonzalo Jara, illustration based on these footprints:

“If you visit the Museo de Salas de los Infantes website you can see that in Costalomo deposit are some of the most impressive icnites of the world. The particularity is that some of these footprints are extruded from the ground due to the very special conditions the dinosaur faced when it left the footprints. I tried to represent this moment in my illustration, and well, I tried to do my best. I hope you like it.” Full comment here

Oldest Dinosaur Found: A Labrador retriever-sized animal that lived 243 million years ago and sported a five foot-long tail may be the oldest dinosaur ever found.

“Fluffy Deinonychus”, by Paul Heaston:
“The idea here was to show how a male Deinonychus might display by “puffing,” just as some modern birds do. I started this as just a pen sketch of the head and neck, then photo-scanned it with my phone and threw it into photoshop. Everything else was digitally sketched. I used Smnt2000’s fantastic dino-wing tutorial for this guy’s wings.
Edit: changed the folding of the arm a bit; “Wings” over at the Dinosaur Toy Forum gave me some constructive criticism.”

No Instagram here, kids, this is photographic paleo-art from The Eighties. The photographer, Jane Burton, combined models, cutouts, glass panels, painted backgrounds and different camera tricks to achieve these results.

If you want to know more, take a look at Tricia’s Obligatory Art Blog, and you’ll see that she deserves all the credit for this post. Thank you, Tricia. Also there’s this book.
