GoneHey y'all, sorry I've been gone. I haven't done a single piece of art this summer and now that it's ending...I should draw something. I don't have to go to university anymore so I can focus on whatever I want.
So the question is:
What kind of dinos/fanart/pokemon y'all want to see? I've got big non-art projects looming in the way and I hope to someday share that stuff here.
Give me work please!I'm free, and I want to do commissions! Order a print or ask me to draw dinosaurs or concept art for you!
Update: New entry! Now what? I need 4 more dinosaurs to draw this term. Let me know in the comments!
Don't ask me to draw raptors.Or maybe I shouldn't draw raptors. I'm never happy with them. I'm a lot happier drawing other stuff. And no, it's not the feathers.
Aaaanyways, uh, well, I've sold a buncha dinosaur toys here: http://stores.ebay.com/Lulus-Mesozoic-Emporium?_trksid2047675.l2563 it may be too late for you to get your dino before x-mas, but should you get cash for x-mas, well, come spend it here!
Yes, I will continue to draw, but I need requests because I don't know what to draw anymore. This week I'm submitting a certain hadrosaur, and I hope y'all will like it. I'm trying hard to be on more often.
Climate Change hero kidI rarely get political, but if y'all have a few minutes, please watch this and join the effort:
Sorry for the latenessI'm not gonna lie. I've been super busy with school. WHY DID I RETUUURN? I have no idea. I'm pursuing a degree in business so that I may sell my dinosaur toys (seen here: http://stores.ebay.com/Lulus-Mesozoic-Emporium?_trksid2047675.l2563) in a more efficient way.
Thanks to those who wished me well upon my graduation and even bigger thanks to those who said happy birthday! Man that entire week I was depressed over a certain class I was no good at, but that's over...prematurely. I'm still doing what I love, but I took some missteps there.
Anyways, I have a new dinosaur up, it was drawn back in May, and I'm going to be more active here and on the web from now on, I promise. I've got 4 more dinosaurs that are complete! But I'll upload them sloooowly.
And for those who collect dinosaur toys, I've started reviewing the Jurassic World toys here: http://emperordinobot.blogspot.com/. Except 2 reviews per day. They aren't much, but they are something and people elsewhere have been waiting for
I GRADUATED!!! And JURASSIC WORLD!!!I got my BA in Anthropology. I can be called an Anthropologist now. Dunno what I'm gonna do with it but...does it really matter what I do with my future? That's not what we're here to talk about! We're here to talk about JURASSIC WORLD!!!
...I greatly enjoyed it and it was cool.
Now buy my stuff: http://stores.ebay.com/Lulus-Mesozoic-Emporium?_trksid2047675.l2563 I have the largest selection of Jurassic Park toys on the planet.
Four dromaeosaurs are going to grace your screens very soon! As soon as I have time to work on them.
And no, they are not Owen's raptors.
Update time!I graduate in one month.
Jurassic World comes out in one month.
The end cometh.
Actually, no, it's a new beginning. The reason why I never posted Xenoposeidon, Turanoceratops, Velociraptor, Stegosaurus, Triceratops and another Deinonychus (because he came out fucking hideous) is because I've been EXTREMELY BUSY this term!
Elections took 5 WEEKS! 5 fucking weeks! It's ok because I GOT RE-ELECTED as ASPSU Senator. Another year of helping the community! I couldn't be happier. My entire slate kicked ass. Excellent examples of leadership. Oh, that and that classes are kicking my ass. I mean who the F cares about Egyptology?!?! Ok, well, I kinda do. It's interesting.
Oh, and I may have met someone.
Oh oh oh, and don't let me forget about this: http://stores.ebay.com/Lulus-Mesozoic-Emporium?_trksid2047675.l2563
My ebay store is a huge success, and I'm currently the largest distributor of old Jurassic Park items on the planet. I held that title last summer and I finally got the
Fuzz/feathers/hair/biomechanics questionHere's a reminder: The next dinosaur I'm going to post is going to make some people hate me, and that is ok.
Also, tell me something about robustness, skinny animals/compressed animals.
Am I missing something here?
I know this is not a straightforward question, but is trying to draw dinosaurs a bit less fat a bad thing? This was brought up by a commenter who took aim at the "Allosaurus of dischord", and I've been wondering about it ever since.
Don't worry, my next two dinos are gonna be FAT accordingly.
Allosaurus pictured is meant to depict a subadult Allosaurus. If I were to do it again, an adult of either sex, I would draw it mostly naked. MOSTLY.
That is all. Spring break cometh, giving me time to work on stuff that's due. After the next dinosaur (If you've seen "the classics" list), I'm gonna break protocol and...uh. Just wait and see.
Thanks to the watchers, and even more thanks to the commenters, who make me think in a mostly braindead world.
Allosaurus created controversy on Paleoartistshttps://www.facebook.com/groups/16791880228/10153134334230229/?notif_t=like
God damn, I knew this piece of crap would be a hit, but who knew Schlomo would bring thoughts up?
Ok, so I've been looking at the whole All New Yesterday's movement, which I define as an "encouragements for fellow paleoartists to depict prehistoric fauna in unconventional ways yet not straying far from what is evidence...".
Apparently my Allosaurus with fuzzy integument caused some people to get mad. Believe me, as I drew him, I was the first angry person. This was a 9m+ highly active theropod that lived at a time where the planet was the absolute hottest. Why give it fuzz? It's not even a coelurosaurian. BBBBBbbbbbbbbbuuut...why not?
Why not? I don't think I've seen any allosaurs with fuzz.
I think he looks good! I never draw allosaurs since they do not interest me as much as...ceratosaurs or sauropods do, but they are a very diverse group. So who the F knows what went on back in the day?
Anyways, I'm j

Update from DD-Catalogue FounderDear All,
Thank you for 'watching' DD-Catalogue, and for all your support over the last 4 years. You may have noticed that the group has recently lost super group status. I'd like to apologise for the disruption this has caused to our Gallery and homepage. I'd also like to apologise for the lack of updates and features recently. I have neglected the group somewhat during my university study.
...but I'm planning a revamp to make it better than ever!
I would appreciate it if you could give me some feedback in the comments on some of the following:
What do you like most about DD-Catalogue?
What would you like to see from DD-Catalogue? (features/interviews/polls ??)
Would you donate a small amount towards Super Group status?
Would you like to be on the admin team?
Thanks for reading,
Add this Journal to your 'favourites' if we have your support in bringing DD-Catalogue back to life!

DeviantArt, deviantART and Lots of Things TooWe're going to be DeviantArt, officially. But you can always call us deviantART. You'll get to be retro, and that's always... well, retro! This goes for DA and dA, too.
It was nice to see Moonbeam13 and starvingartist today in Toronto. We got some lunch. Then 'Beam was nice enough to drive me to the airport with Rob. Rob! Happy Birthday Moonbeam!
I'm in the sky eating a banana at the moment. I wonder what monkeys would make of me eating a banana at 30,000 feet. Let alone journaling on DA from here.
I was in Toronto visiting Autodesk, and the teams behind Sketchbook and Pixlr and other awesome apps they have. What wonderful people. I really enjoyed seeing what they're up to, it's all very exciting.
I've been hanging out on #devart on dAmn today, and I asked Pickley to pull together all the best scripts and projects out there that improve dAmn. This way DA can consider buying the code, interfaces, etc. and
I hate manga and anime.Recently, someone told me that she likes Anime and Manga because they are avenues for limitless imagination, and without rules.
I couldn't believe what I was hearing, because my own experience is utterly opposite: Anime and Manga are quite possibly the least creative, most rule-infested genre of art. I can speak with some authority on this subject because I've lived in Japan (the home of anime and manga) for seven years.
In fact, I OWN some rulebooks about manga and anime, despite avoiding that genre with the same dedication with which a diabetic avoids sugar. I've also watched interviews with manga artists as they discuss the rules of manga/anime, and hung out on a Manga-for-artists website before discovering DeviantArt.
Consider the following rule set, and ask yourself a) is it true? b) what sort of stifling rulebook and lifestyle forced these artists to stay well within the rules, only trying to break away from the pack by taking the rules of cuteness, sexiness, violence, and good-v
