Just a Eosinopteryx nest by Hyrotrioskjan Just a Eosinopteryx nest by Hyrotrioskjan
Nr. 17 of my All Yesterdays series.
This time it's less creative and more aesthetic. Birds build their nests every and climbing, gliding, flying non avian theropod would have the same opportunities. Here it's a male Eosinopteryx which warm the eggs in an hollow tree trunk during the female searching for food.

Edit: ~Orionide5 mentioned that Eosinopteryx was flightless. That's obvious true but it't doesn't make nests in trees impossible. A good example from today for behavior like this is the Seriema, these birds are nearly flightless but the build their nest between 1 and 5 meters over the ground, sometimes even higher. For their nesting places they choose trees where they can climb up to the nest...
I hope you see where this is going.

Holds a lot of interest for such a boring animal

Boring animal? My brain isn't able to work with these term in that combination.

These are just the bigger paintings, there is much more small, sketchy, unpublished stuff which you will see on the photos =)

Oh... there is even more! Are you sure you're from this planet? :lol:

I'm kidding. I simply enjoy every new artwork produced by you. "All Yesterdays" seems to be tremendous inspiration for you.

Very elegant piece. I could actually picture that one framed and hung on a wall for someone.

Haha, in the moment it hangs from the ceiling, but you are right, some of this pieces work very well framed.

I guess this one of the many questions I have about your process. Is there a particular reason you tear or cut out pieces?
Reply
:iconhyrotrioskjan:
Hyrotrioskjan Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2013  Professional General Artist
One reason is that the paper I use is to big for the scanner, the other reason is that I just like it, it gives the pieces something volatile, dynamic and different (which fits very well with the AY revolution ;))

Sorry for such a delayed response!

Ahh that makes sense! Now it does make the works look more natural come to think of it.

Eosinopteryx was fully terrestrial. Do you have it confused with something else?

If they used hollowed trees often, then they may had relied on another kind of dinosaur(s) to knock the trees down for them. I smell ecology taking place hear :iconwoohooplz:!

Nice work by the way, still loving you stuff.
