A Whitlatch-Like Eye Lizard by Smnt2000
A Whitlatch-Like Eye Lizard
Well, it seems that all the work I'm doing is giving me some results - all of this thanks to Terryl Whitlatch's online course, Tales of Amalthea, and her wonderful book Animals Real and Imagined. I've to work very hard, but still.
Here's a restoration of Ophthalmosaurus, the ichthyosaur famous due to its appearance in Walking With Dinosaurs. I don't exactly know why, but I could never draw anything more Whitlatch-like.
I don't know ichthyosaur anatomy very well but I've tried my best. Used McGowan's skeletal restoration as a reference.

Thin week this time, folks. Oh well. Be sure to take part to that little and insignificant game of mine.

There's a little game on my blog and there's a poem too.
Don't know if I'll transform it into a full post (I doubt it) but let's see what happens.

Oh boy, we did it. 
Jurassic World hit the screens and now the Jurassic Park saga is more popular than ever. Is it a good thing? Sure. Is it a good movie? Well, go and find out for yourselves.
But this week wasn't just Jurassic World, wasn't it? New trailers, a freaky dinosaur documentary, sketches and a fantastic 'new' paleontological discovery: Balaur 'the killing raptor' becomes Balaur 'the flightless bird'! These past days were great.
Without further ado, try to enjoy the 14th K-T Boundary Assembly!

Ps: I've decided to finish my exams on September/October. Right now I'm too tired and too much light-headed to continue.
Good news then - hope to go in summer mode and start doing things seriously. Keep my fingers crossed.

I promised you that this was going to be a great week, in a way or another.
Read the newest assembly dedicated to Jurassic Park.
What? Where's Jurassic World in all this? Sit and wait.

Smnt2000

Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
Italy
The typical human being: unreliable, not smart, surely not handsome and hugely egocentric. Self-declared freelance "artist" and reviewer, also known with the awkward nickname "Smnt2000". Interested in geeky and nerdish stuff such as sci-fi, dinosaurs and comic books. 20 years old, luckly graduated from Monfalcone's I.S.I.S. "Michelangelo Buonarroti" and now an awful student at Trieste's University in the Language Department. Maybe.

Could you answer a question?
Did ceratosaurus have feathers? and Did Dilophosaurids have feathers?

Ceratosaurus shows a scaly skin but that doesn't mean that some thin hair-like feathers weren't presents (eg: eyelashes).
We don't have any evidence for scaly or feathered dilophosaurids (except the enigmatic impressions of AC 1/7) but probably had them both (as all dinosaurs).

When I say "all dinosaurs have feathers" it doesn't mean that they're all feathered the same way. Some dinosaurs were probably mostly naked after all.
But I'm sure that feathers are a common trait of Dinosauria.
