- Full Description
Dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals pose vast problems for the artist. How do you go about recreating the anatomy and behavior of a creature we've never seen? How can we restore landscapes long lost to time? And where does the boundary between paleontology—the science of understanding fossils—and artistic license lie? In this outstanding book, Mark Witton shares his detailed paintings and great experience of drawing and painting extinct species.
The approaches used in rendering these impressive creatures are discussed and demonstrate the problems, as well as the unexpected freedoms, that paleontological artists are faced with. The book showcases more than 90 scientifically credible paintings of some of the most spectacular animals in the Earth's history, as well as many less familiar species.
Chapters include: Of Mesozoic Seas, Sauropods: The (second) Best Animals, A World of Pterosaurs, Rethinking Dimorphodon, River Masters, Local Heroes, Controversial Ceratopsians, Hey Triassic, you so crazy, Those Persistent Azhdarchid Pterosaurs et al.
