My Bio
(My e-mail adress 「メールアドレス」→) saberp@live.com
* Please don't use/copy my copyrighted artworks anymore, for whatever purpose, without contacting me first for permission.

I am taking requests now.

My artforms and tools of trade are:

1), Traditional 'oil painting' on canvas or board.

2), Traditional pencil/pen or color pencil 'drawing'.

3), To digitally add colors to traditional monochrome drawings(still haven't yet tried this!).


Those are and eternally will be, my chosen artforms. I regard all three as 'equally important' and I'll do them seperately but without letting myself focus on only one thing.

I'll do mammal paleontology art, figure and animal art, masterpiece reproductions, portraiture, still life & fantasy paintgings.

My top 3 favorite artists are: Diego Velazquez, Lucien Freud and Takehiko Inoue.


I have recently figured out the correct way of scanning higher resolutioned images and am going to scan most of earlier works through this new scanning.
Hope they'll turn out better.

By the way, I 've long badly wanted to color some of my works, using nice digital illustration tools!!!
Nowadays a number of good friends on this site, even devoted traditional artists, seem to be adding digital painting effects to their technical recipes or even completely switching to the art form.
I'm interested in the media but completely novcice at and I don't know much about it.
What I'd like to do is not the digital painting from scratch but to first create my usual traditional monochrome drawing and then add to it, colors and some more effects digitally to enhance realism etc.
Would somebody be kind enough to teach me how to, or tell me ideal softwares for the purpose?
Thanks a lot in advance!!!

Best regards,

Sarkastodon and Amphicyon : Bodymass

Sarkastodon and Amphicyon : Bodymass

Amphicyon ingens (Giant Amphicyonid 'Beardog') Image by ©Jagroar VS. Sarkastodon mongoliensis (Giant Oxyaenid 'Creodont') Image by ©Jagroar This is a match-up between Sarkastodon mongoliensis(the largest Oxyaenid 'creodont') vs Amphicyon ingens(the largest Amphicyonid 'beardog'), each represented as one of the deadliest maga-jawed land mammal predators of all time. Both Sarkastodon and Amphicyon will show up alongside the rhinos in my upcoming perissodactyl picture, so please stay tuned for that. B. Sorkin in his 2008 paper('Biomechanical constraint on body mass in terrestrial mammal predators') put forth the hypothesis that

Beardogs to Arctodus, Giant Caniform Predators

Beardogs to Arctodus, Giant Caniform Predators

From Beardogs to Arctodus : Giant Caniform Predators / Agriotherium's phylogeny The phylogenetic relationship between Agriotherium and Indarctos, short faced, long limbed carnivorous bears of the Mio-Pliocene may have to be revised, since the genus Indarctos, traditionally considered to have been ancestral to Agriotherium, is now being placed within Ailuropodinae(relatives of the panda) by several recent phylogenetic analyses. In addition, Agriotherium itself is considered not a part of the subfamily Ailuropodinae but that of Hemicyoninae, a strange group of beardog morphotypes in a 2019 paper that reports the youngest Indarctos remains yet

The genus 'Palaeoloxodon' valid or invalid?

The genus 'Palaeoloxodon' valid or invalid?

'Palaeoloxodon antiquus', the great straight tusked elephant of the Pleistocene Eurasia has been a subject of recent proboscidean genetic researches that provided some intriguing information. One earlier study indicated that the straight tusked elephant was genetically closer to the extant African forest elephant(Loxodonta cyclotis), more so than the latter is to the African savanna elephant(Loxodonta africana). A subsequent study(Palkopoulou et al., 'A comprehensive genomic history of extinct and living elephants', 2018) however, reveals a little more complicated genetic history of the straight tusked elephant in which it shared genetic affi

My country had a tusked Dolphin called Odobenocetops and even a marine sloth and Gharial called Thalassocnus and Piscogavialis

Well dude, I even thought of Europe like Homo Neanderthalensis hunting the giant Elasmotherium Sibiricum, Crocuta Spelaea hunting Bison Priscus and getting back to an origin of humans Machairodus Aphanistus carrying Pierolapithecus Catalaunicus.

I was think of doing of South American Predators before the Pre Incas, here's my selection:
Proborhyaena hunting Pyrotherium 
Purussaurus hunting Trigodon 
Thylacosmilus hunting Promegatherium 
Psilopterus hunting Diadiaphorus 
Kelenken hunting Homalodotherium
Homotherium hunting Amazonian Manatee
Protocyon hunting Palaeolama
Arctotherium (The Largest Carnivore) hunting Toxodon
Smilodon Festing on Macrauchenia

All very interesting, especially to me, Proborhyaena hunting Pyrotherium, Homotherium hunting Amazonian Manatee(such a scenario has never ever occured to me) and Protocyon hunting Palaeolama.
If you have some more interesting paleoart ideas to share with me, please do so via messages, not elaborating on this comment section.
