gondwana; concept art goes palaeo

gondwana

Concept art and palaeoart (or palaeontography if you prefer) are two very different beasts. On the outside they can look very similar, but with all but the most informed artists, the underlying structures reveal these surfaces to be at best convergent. I ran across these juicy images by Gondwana, a skilled concept artist. Wow! Look at those textures. Yet the dinosaurs leave me with an odd feeling that there’s a man in there, wearing a fantastic rubber suit.

No matter… check out his raptor, switch-blade Smilodon and Styracosaurus.
