Thought I’d share this advance view of a piece I hope to finish for the sauropod challenge at ArtEvolved. If you’re at all interested in paleoart, dinosaurs or evolution you should head over and either take part or subscribe. There are also ample links and previous challenge galleries… very cool.
What fascinates me about sauropods are their progression into these huge beasts. I’m hoping to manage 3 models; thecodontosaurus, plateosaurus and supersaurus. The plateosaurus physiology is based on the wonderful sculptures at the Stuttgart Museum of Natural History. If anyone knowledgeable has any tips or observations, please share… I’m new to paleoart.
edit: new composition. This one pushes the focus more effectively on the beginnings… whatcha think?
