Thanks for all your feedback, likes and enthusiasm on Deviant Art.
Sorry I'm not very active here these days, but you can still follow my work through my website, http://www.cmkosemen.com
I want to announce a new series of evolution, film, science and zoology-themed podcasts on my youtube channel. Please watch them, and join the fun on http://www.youtube.com/cmkosemen
At long last, All Your Yesterdays is out! This is a volume of All Yesterdays - themed palaeoart based on the contest we held in February. Download it today at http://www.irregularbooks.co/
All Your Yesterdays is absolutely free, but we'd be very happy if you could donate an amount of your choice. Remember, the more financial support we get, the more time we can devote to writing, illustrating and publishing exciting new books!
I have a Q&A session going on at my Youtube channel.
You can ask about palaeontology, All Yesterdays, science fiction, questions about me, etc. etc. Just write your question in the comments section below - and I shall answer them in my next Youtube video.
I started a series of video podcasts about palaeontology, zoology, and anything that piques my interest, all supported by books and artwork from my library.
Quick - go check it out at
I've noticed this phenomenon among some fan-art produced here on DA, especially in my case, for Snaiad.
Some users are too eager to "diss" the creations of their fellow Deviants, poking holes and writing them off in curt, dismissive tones. This is unproductive and juvenile.
When someone produces fan-art for a project, any project, this shows that they have "lived" in that world long enough to go ahead and make stuff on their own. Dismissing such eager participation would be the most stupid course of action to take.
I almost never "denounce" Snaiadi fan-creations, unless they look too much like pokemon or cheesy monsters. Even if I don't ca
Much has been made of this issue.
I feel that while Mr. Paul did put himself into an indefensible position with what he said, ranting on an on about how he was wrong won't help anyone either.
In my humble opinion, the one artist who can best represent paleoart in the "post-Paulian" era is none other than Mr. Frederik Spindler. Do check his website if you haven't seen it already. There is so much in there that is so fresh...
Hi everyone. Just checking-up quickly to see which of my artistic styles you like the best. Care to answer?
I can't do a proper poll since I'm not a premium DA user.
Here are the styles:
* Snaiadi Saliva Painting
* Detailed Fine-scale Lineart
* Messy Dinosaur Lineart

* Funky-Colorful with Thick Lines (As in the Illustrated World News, "Pascagoula Encounter" etc.
I've been getting a lot of questions and requests about Snaiad recently. Some of these are very heartfelt and sincere, and I apologize for making this project unavailable for so long.
I cannot work on Snaiad as much as I used to. Yet there is so much more that I want to add to this project, including those "canonized" designs sent in by you guys. Besides this, I feel that some of the older plates are in dire-need of re-drawing, and some parts of Snaiadi anatomy (How Fututor tongues work, Jetocetes, etc.) need to be clarified and re-designed.
I don't want to prop up a half-finished project. Yet I know how much people miss the o
