Paleo-Art: Pretty As Hell by vcubestudios
Paleo-Art: Pretty As Hell
Pretty as hell. Hell Creek that is. One of the buildings I maintain has these two huge Magnolia trees, and come spring, they're some of the most beautiful things in all of nature. Latly, I've been in a bit of a rut as far as art goes, and being Finals Week doesn't help either, but it was great to see those things in bloom when I could. Magnolias are a pretty ancient flower bearing plant, with many fossils dating as far back as 90 Million years ago. A place where they are commonly found was the land that now forms the layer of rock known as the hell creek formation. For this piece, I used Aaron Blaise's brush set for foliage to create the backgrounds. This was done in the opposite order of how I do things. Normally, I draw the animal first, then I make the background to fit it. This was reversed. So we see a pair of Triceratops wandering through what looks to be a field of wild flowers growing under a few magnolias in full bloom.

Paleo-Art: Hadrosaur-Peckers by vcubestudios
Paleo-Art: Hadrosaur-Peckers
More of an idea than a piece. This quick sketch shows an Edmontosaurus, and a flock of an Oxpecker-like Cimolopteryx. Since there are so few bones of this creature currently known, I thought it'd be fun to speculate the possibilities.

Paleo-Art: Mammoth At Sunset by vcubestudios
Paleo-Art: Mammoth At Sunset
A 3d rendering done in Poser, and edited in GIMP of a columbian mammoth. I made this model from a modified version of the Vanishing-point elephant model, and I added the tusks of Dinoraul's Mammoth model to add to the look.

Paleo-Art: Pachirhinosaurus by vcubestudios
Paleo-Art: Pachirhinosaurus
Pachyrhinosaurus was a large ceratopsian dinosaur that once lived in what is now Canada and Alaska. For this more speculative piece, I tried to envision different sub-sets of the species Lakustai. I liked the idea of a woolly ceratopsian dinosaur, so I created three variations of the same animal. The bare one lives in regions where the temperature and weather does not change as drastically throughout the year, so it can afford to be bare of feathers, instead growing elephant-like skin. The cold weather variant has a short, stage two or three feathers to keep it relativly cool during the summer months. Then, in winter, it grows a double layered coat. This being a fine, downy coat close to the body, and a long, wiry coat to protect it from the elements.

Paleo-Art: Spinosaurus V2.0 by vcubestudios
Paleo-Art: Spinosaurus V2.0
Spinosaurus Aegyptiacus was the largest terrestrial carnivore that ever lived. It's part of a group of Therapod Dinosaurs that are relatively recently discovered. The original specimen was recovered in 1912 and was put on display in the Natural History Museum in Munich, before it was destroyed in WWII. For the next several decades, a single photograph was the only record we had of this strange beast. Then in 2014, more material was recovered from Morocco. It showed that Spinosaurus may have had a slight dip in it extended dorsal spines, shorter legs, longer neck and tail, and flat/ possibly webbed feet. This fits nicely in our current view of this animal, given that we now know that this animal lived most of its life in the shallow waters of the vast mangrove swamps that once covered North Africa. We also know that Spinosaurus's Diet mostly consisted of fish.

For this piece, I was kind of in the mood to draw more feathered dinosaurs. I've seen works by people such as Plastspleen and Traheripeterix, and got the idea of a feathered, whiskered spinosaurus. I drew this guy on paper, and then colored it digitally. The colors and textures were taken from a chinstrap, and a humbolt penguin, and I incorporated two factors to the new discovery. The first being Scott Hartman's observation that it's legs were a little longer than the publication made out, and this idea that Spinosaurus made have had a strong, flexible neck. Similar to a modern Pelican.
