Group Info

Welcome to PARC (Paleo Artists Resource Center). A DA Group dedicated to providing up to date information and resources to users who wish to reconstruct the lives, anatomies and behaviors of extinct organisms. We provide everything from skeletal diagrams to examples of the practice by some of the best talent on the site. We hope this library can prove useful to you in anyway.

- Paleontography (or PARC) is a group focused at providing a starting point to young or otherwise beginning paleoartists with various resources and tutorials to help them on their way. Submitting a skeletal reconstruction, a tutorial or a finalized artwork means that you allow it to be used as a resource or as inspiration by other people. This does not mean that PARC encourages art-theft - copying art by other people is not allowed.

- Artwork submitted to the group should be scientifically accurate. This means that nothing in the artwork should contradict the fossil record. Speculation is allowed and welcomed and there are several folders in the gallery for varying degrees of speculation. Artwork that does contradict the fossil record will be removed and the artist will be given an explanation of the problems and what to improve in terms of accuracy.

- It is encouraged to submit artwork (or other submissions) to the relevant and correct folders within the group. Artwork not submitted correctly will be moved to its correct place when noticed by one of our admins.

- Artwork deemed unrelated to the group will lead to an admin removing said artwork from the group and providing an explanation of why to the artist.

I apologize for the lack of updates. I needed to write this up really quick to inform all members of the group of some changes made to our submission policy. Up until now, we have had the group set so as to accept any submissions made to our gallery. However, because of a wave of submissions that go against our terms of service, this permission has been changed for the time being. As of now, every submission will have to be approved by our moderators.

I say for the time being, because I am announcing that I will be stepping down as this groups founder. If I am being perfectly honest, I have not been paying as much attention to this group as I probably should have. I now see that I a not fit for this position, but rather than delete the group outright, I instead would wish to invite a potential replacement. If anyone of the moderators would wish to apply, feel free to message me privately. Until then, I appreciate you guys who've submitted great work in the past and hope that in my absence this will still prove a valuable resource for aspiring paleo-artists.

Thank you for your time,

Friendly reminder that the AAKZ (the people selling supposed pterosaur amber specimens) are scammers and doxxing freaks. Here's Mark Witton explaining why they're horrible people:…

Hey, I am finding that some of my submission end up being accepetd here on this group and later on they are silently removed from the group. And, according to this group: "Artwork that does contradict the fossil record will be removed and the artist will be given an explanation of the problems and what to improve in terms of accuracy." and "Artwork deemed unrelated to the group will lead to an admin removing said artwork from the group and providing an explanation of why to the artist.". These removals haven't been followed by no explanation. I might have missed something in the meantime, but I guess that, if anything is innacurate in my artworks I should know... and I want to know as well.

Apologies for the late reply, I haven't done anything a moderator would do since I was given the role.
I'm not the moderator who did it, but I am aware of the reasons.

 your art was rejected due to it not fitting in artistically.
