Introducing Hesperornithoides miessleri

Introducing Hesperornithoides miessleri

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!

Most theropods probably had lips

Most theropods probably had lips

This is just a quick journal entry to let all of you know I'm overhauling of my non-bird theropod skeletals, and a large part of it is to put more obvious (and IMO more accurate) lips on them. I've written up a (lengthy) blog post outlining the evidence that supports theropods lips here: http://www.skeletaldrawing.com/home/the-lip-post1 I will do a second blog post in the next week or so on what correlates I'm using to guide the lip reconstructions. I also wanted to warn people that while I've updated around half of my theropod skeletals it will most likely be a few more weeks before I have those uploaded to DA, so in the meantime you are be

A quick update on my absence

A quick update on my absence

Hello DAers! My long absence due to multiple projects (and teaching, and graduate school) is probably a month away from coming to an end. I apologies for those who sent me IMs and didn't hear back, sometimes for months. If there is a rush it's almost always better to contact me through my website contact form, as I'll see that right away. Also, I should have lots of fun skeletals to show off in the coming months (and years) thanks in part to the work I put in over the last 9 months. I look forward to chatting with you all again in a few weeks! -Scott

Right now I'm currently working on an art project that is basically balancing out the design of the dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals from the jurassic park / world franchise with the current scientific research and I was wondering about if I could use your paleoartwork as reference material I promise that I'll credit you for it

That's fine with me. Good luck on your project!

i was curious about your Miadanasuchus skeletal: is it intended to be a peirosaurid?

I'm aware of the basic differences such as T. prorsus' longer nasal horn, but are you familiar with the more diagnostic features that differentiate the two species of Triceratops? I don't need this for anything in particular I'm just feeding a curiosity, and as someone who isn't especially familiar with what qualifies as a diagnostic feature I think this could help me get a better understanding.

Given the growing number of genera associated with the Megaraptorans, what do you attribute to the very incomplete nature of the fossil material we currently have.
