I have been approached with offers to do creatures for Magestone by several people now. This seems to have all started because my friend form Speculative Dinosaur Project times Pristichampsus (https://www.deviantart.com/pristichampsus) had done some spec-evo D&D critters as Magestone fan-art, and asked me what he should do with them. Now, I have always intended Magestone to remain strictly a personal project, but seeing as he had already put a lot of effort into it and the monsters he had chosen were ones I was unlikely to spend much energy on anyway, I reviewed them and noted which ones could plausibly be part of the Magestone canon, and Tim posted those in his gallery.
Obligatory June update: my hands and arms are in awful shape, hence no new art all year. Even writing is bad. Still no improvement.
If the muscle & nerve pain & numbness improve I could post old stuff & WIPs fom last year & winter. No idea when, though. Could be months. Watch this space in 3 months or so.
I wanted to let you know that from now on, I will no longer be posting works of certain paleoartistic subjects on DeviantArt. There will still probably be new paleoart uploaded in this gallery in the future, and this will not affect the spec bio art, unless at some point I deem it necessary. If I do produce paleoart not suited for dA in the future, I'll try to find some other venue to make it publicly available.
There used to be a time I wondered why so many paleoartists were leaving dA. I no longer do. Let's hope it doesn't come to that.
Oh my Cat! :omfg: I just hit 1000 watchers today! In the face. With a giant mallet with the words "Watch Me!" on it. Seriously though, I have 1000 watchers as of today, and that's amazing! You're amazing! Wooo! :party:
I feel like this is a MAJOR DA milestone, and because I wouldn't be much of anything without my audience, I want do do something special as a thanks to all of you. I didn't have long to prepare, but I did a redesign of one of my first speculative dinosaurs specially for this occasion, I'm uploading a bunch of old stuff from my dinosaur storybook soom, and I'm opening the comment section of this journal entry as an AMA, which s
Yep, it seems like I only manage to write one of these per year these days, so better make it count!
As you've probably already noticed, I've had a bit of a burst of productivity lately. This has to do with two things: 1) my lazy endocrine system is waking up after winter hibernation (unfortunately my body reacts negatively to hormone replacement so I guess I just have to deal with it) and 2) I've finally gotten the hang of using my new Wacom Tablet.
Much of the credit for the latter actually belongs to Joschua Knüppe a.k.a Hyrotrioskjan, who I've incidentally wanted to do a shoutout for for years, especially since I never seem to find
