Spinosaurus

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:

And the article on sail shape I posted in the last journal:

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.

Hesperornithoides

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!

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: www.skeletaldrawing.com/home/t…

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 better off looking at the skeletal galleries on my website. I'll try to make time to get them here as soon as I can, but time will be tight for a while.

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
