We’ll add you to our growing list of deviants interested in stepping into the new phase with Eclipse. Keep in mind Eclipse will be steadily rolled out to deviants in batches over the coming weeks and months, so don’t fret if you haven’t received a notification just yet!
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
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
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!
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.
That seems to be the case with most poorly understood groups. Hopefully we can at least take care of the sampling bit in the coming years so people can at the very least decide where the heck they belong in the theropod tree.
