Dendrorhynchoides by Matt:
”(…) anurognathids are weird. Furry frog-bats. With furry edges to their patagia for silent flight, like the frayed flight feathers of an owl. Short, broad wings = high maneuverability, great for chasing after bugs between tree trunks or out over Yixian lakes. Big, wide frog mouth for catching them. I’ve seen reconstructions give them long, bug-sensing whiskers like an Owlet-nightjar, though I don’t think there’s direct evidence for this (…)”
Sketches by Stevie Moore. About the first one:
“A concept of a possible Southern extreme late Jurassic/Early Cretaceous Scene where a Diplodocid sp. Looks for food among the Coniferous Austral Forests. This is a hypothetical scene.”
Megalosaurus, past and present, by Heraldo Mussolini:
“I always wanted to do something with vintage dinosaurs, so I drew two versions of the same dinosaur, the old quadruped reconstruction above, and the modern bipedal one below.”
Leptoceratops and Stegosaurus by Doug Henderson.
“In a lot of palaeoart, the animals will practically be jumping down our throats, as if they’re putting on a show for us (it’s almost possible to smell the popcorn). Instead, Henderson offers us furtive glimpses through the thick underbrush of a world that is as lush and filled with life as it is hostile and unwelcoming. Dinosaurs, so often depicted as the lords of the Earth, are typically hopelessly dwarfed by their surroundings. There’s something so very real about it all.” Keep reading Marc Vincent’s post on Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs.
Liopleurodon rossicus by Andrey Atuchin
Swamp-dwelling Europasaurus by Emiliano Troco.
“Troco, in his deep sensitivity as an artist and naturalist, showed dinosaurs in unexpected postures (such as Megaraptor resting on the ground, or immersed in the snow), and returned to the archaic practice of depicting sauropods wallowing in ponds and lakes, an approach which the more orthodox Bakkerism disdained.”
Camarasaurus head study by Vladimir Nikolov:
b. Old-fashioned reconstruction with nostrils on the top of the head.
c. Modern reconstruction with nostrils as close as possible to the top of the snout.
d. Reconstruction based on the proved to be wrong hypothesis which proposed a chance for presence of proboscis in sauropod dinosaurs.
