Hey y'all! Long time no post.
Things have been a bit nuts in Tiffanyland lately, but I wanted to show you a few things I've done that are creaturey. Unfortunately, (or not), they're prehistoric reconstructions.
Lunchtime With Livyatan
I've been wanting to do a rendition of Livyatan melvillei ever since I saw the sad reconstruction painting that was stuck to every article about him.
I used Nemo-Ramjet's rendition as reference, and gave her a Cetotherium to eat!
Here, a Livyatan female has just pulverized a straggler with her initial bone-breaking ambush from below, and is moving in to finish her meal off - while the rest of the Cetotherium pod gets the fuck out! >:]
Not too accurate, especially with the sizing, but eh.
Work-in-progress of Polycotylus, a late Cretaceous plesiosaur.
Last year a specimen was described with viviparous fetae inside her - which could be potential evidence of mothering!
…So here she is with her beebees. :3
Oh, I used a variation on Wilhelm's fluke reconstruction, too - just for lulz.
Not horribly accurate, I just wanted to draw some baby plesiosaurs.
A Rest With Dimetrodon
Clifford and his new friend enjoy a quick rest in the Texan Permian.
Meanwhile, Clive stumbles into a hungry Eryops! Watch out! :O
Whew, he just wanted an Orthocanthus snack. :3
These last two are from my original children's book, Dinosaurs Before Bedtime.
In the story, the Clevenger Kids go on a magical adventure through prehistoric time on a quest to reach the Mesozoic before mom declares lights out. But there's so many critters that came before dinos!
More to come soon, critter peoples! :D
