Here it is. I'm sure people will have opinions on it. I'm happy to answer questions, but if you want more detailed information I wrote extensively about my choices and assumptions on my website: https://www.skeletaldrawing.com/home/road-to-spinosaurus-iv-not-your-fathers-jp3-osaurus11282020 https://www.skeletaldrawing.com/home/the-road-to-spinosaurus-iii-of-chimeras-and-leg-proportions11262020 And the article on sail shape I posted in the last journal: https://www.skeletaldrawing.com/home/the-road-to-spinosaurus-ii-known-unknowns11252020

I have finally got back around to working on a new Spinosaurus skeletal from scratch. I'm exploring some of the issues on my website, including a critical look at the new sail shape everyone seems keen on copying. Check it out here: https://www.skeletaldrawing.com/home/the-road-to-spinosaurus-ii-known-unknowns11252020

I'm afraid my summer schedule isn't going to give me much time for DA posting, but I did want to take a moment to introduce you to a new small, winged dinosaur from the Jurassic of North America that I and my coauthors named - Hesperornithoides miessleri. If you want more information about it I also wrote up a blog post you can read here: http://www.skeletaldrawing.com/home/hesperornithoides-faq7102019 Cheers!

Hello Dr Hartman,


I'm a big fan of your work. I was wondering if you take commissions?

Hey Scott, quick question. While I've heard that most paleontologists specializing in raptor dinosaurs agree that the second toe claw is used for stabbing. I saw in a recent interview with Jim Kirkland that brought up a good point that supports the old slashing toe model. He said that the toe claw is laterally compressed in Utahraptor and, in life, may have had pseudo-serrations on it from the keratinous sheath having growth lines. Could this model be possible? The link to the interview is in this post. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tFfnfJrhfA

Congratulations on your doctorate, Dr. Hartman.

Greetings!, may i draw some of your art and post them as a deviation if i give you credit? if not that is also fine.

You can use my skeletals are anatomy guides for your drawings, but not just to trace or modify.
