  • theabsurdmudskipperstentialistWhen you're illustrating dinosaurs do you ever get to examine the fossils up close or do you have to rely entirely on photographs?
  • At this point in my life I have to pretty much rely on photographs and what others have drawn before me (which sucks but there’s some pretty amazing and informative stuff out there). I’ve worked in a dinosaur lab before, but even then when was doing 3D work sculpting the skeleton of a 20 foot-long extinct genus of Coelacanth I had to rely on photographs and the extensive fish knowledge of my boss. During at least one of my upcoming internships I’ll be working with the paleontology lab of a major natural history museum, and I imagine there I’ll get to draw from real dinosaur bones and fossils pretty regularly. Which will be great because there’s nothing like touching the real thing to figure out how it’s supposed to look on paper. :)
