  1. Mike from Ottawa Says:

    Seeing that art, I’m left slack-jawed with wonder that guys like John Conway and Mark Witton can make the vast fortunes they do from palaeoart when it’s obvious any 3 year old can do it.

    Checking the post I just noticed that: 1. I was in the conversation, and 2. I never drew the gliding ankylosaur…. too nice and too bad, respectively.

  3. Mark Witton Says:

    After 200 years, palaeoart finally has a winner.

    Awesome ! What program did you use?

    Amazingly, I was able to achieve this level of artistry using only the GIMP, a free PhotoShop-alike.

  6. Sean Says:

    And here I was thinking Doug Henderson was the best Palaeoartist of all time!


  7. Mostly I’m left being grateful that I wasn’t drinking a mouthful of beverage when I started reading this post. Well done Mike!


  8. Yay, another falling ankylosaur to add to the collection!

  9. Mike Taylor Says:

    There’s other falling-ankylosaur art out there? Dammit! Just goes to show how hard it is to come up with something genuinely new!

    I just hope that this doesn’t instigate accusations of plagiarism / uncredited inspiration on your part, Mike! You’ve already stated that you were unaware of prior work (and that’s good enough for me) but perhaps it’s worth considering detailing the process that you went through when creating this unique piece? Hopefully it won’t take you any longer than it did to draw the picture in the first place.

    Tsintaosaurus proves both dragons and unicorns exist!


  12. […] Save this link for that moment, probably late at night, when all you need is a good laugh about dinosaurs, etc. […]


  13. Mike! I’m loving the awesome dino art. Now, I definitely feel encouraged to have a go myself.
    However (a minor quibble!) I feel you have drawn T.rex with too many gill slits. I don’t think the gastralia were gill arches.
    Otherwise, great!
