Rhamphorhynchus might be dead, but I'm not!

Visit my palaontographical website, and get a free dinosaur!

I am not dead, I have even submitted something! A dissection series of Rhamphorhychus:

It's a little... odd, I guess. I'm not sure where I'm going with it, but it gave me the feeling of painting something real and alive (even though it's dead!) than all the natural life restorations I've done. I hope it conveys the same.

That was amazing

I draw some palaeo-creatures, but none as good as you, Arthur Weasley or Stanton F. Fink or anyone for that matter....

It does look alive. But that's a quality I like about all of your dinosaurs. They look like they were painted from the outside in---by a person watching the animals rather than extrapolating muscle and skin over articulated bones.

I have to say, I don't find the piece odd at all, in fact I find it extremely unique and funny, you should do more like it. I enjoyed it greatly. Keep up the creativity!

To me, it conveys a chill down my spine.....
I admit, there's nothing better than real-life anatomy references for a painter, but just thinking about a bird being dissectioned makes me shiver!

Is it a real word?
