My book. 'The Amazing World of Dinosaurs" features more than 160 pages of my natural history artwork. It's available at here……

Never really bought into that idea myself anyway...

I'm really humbled and excited to be part of this collaboration. In addition to myself, the book will feature art by Luis Rey, Davide Bonadonna, Sergey Krasovskiy, Masato Hatori and others. Available now for pre-order on Amazon!…

I recently completed a project creating images for the West Hartford Children's Museum new dinosaur exhibit. The project involved about 20 small (2' x 3') images, and three 16 x 20 foot murals. You can see one of the murals in the image below. The mural depicts feathered dinosaurs (Yutyrannus, Psittacosaurus, Caudipteryx and Sinosauropteryx) to contrast with the model of Deinonychus that is not feathered to display the changing views of dinosaurs. Link to two stories about the opening of the exhibit with additional images.……

The Beast
I'm going through this period where everything I touch artistically turns to shit. So I decided to just do something fun. One of my first zbrush projects was an attempt to recreate the Rhedosaurus from the film The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms. The model's not very good, but it was fun just to finish it (relatively speaking) and render him out in a scene.

You, sir, have a very impressive gallery of prehistoric lifeforms charts. I am very impressed.

Hey PaleoGuy, I have a question. Love your artwork and I've noticed a lot of Abelisaurs and Carnosaurs being rendered with the proto-fuzz found on a lot of Ceolurosaurs. I'm not arguing it, just curious if I miss an important discovery as I hadn't heard of them having feather. I do try to keep up to date but paleontology is a big field so occasionally I miss a few things. To my knowledge pretty much all epidermal impressions from those two groups showed either bare skin, scales, or even scutes.

On behalf of all paleoartists who reconstruct their non avian Dinosaurs as original, strange, beautiful, terrifying and unique as possible (while still being scientifically accurate), I'd like to thank you dearly for reconstructing not only a Carcharodontosaurid with feathers, but also an ABELISAUR with feathers. This is a rare site in paleoart  due to everyone not only copying off of everyone else, but also because people just automatically assume that since a couple of species are known from relatively small, damaged scale impressions, that all of their relatives were automatically completely devoid of anything else but scales. Thank you for being such a unique and original artist. May I add a few possible ideas that you could give to your Dinosaurs that would make them even more unique?
tarbano Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2015
Not arguing with you, just curious as I hadn't heard anything about this. Did we find feathers on Abelisaurs yet? I had heard of some debatable evidence from a few Carnosaurs, but everything I'd heard from the former group was all scales. The extensive epidermal impressions from Carnotaurus were all bare skin, scales, and some scutes last I checked.
