Updating older work?

Updating older work?

What do you, fellow humans, think the best way to update an image on DeviantArt is? What follows is my over thinking.... The reason I ask is because I often update my images a fair bit; to either improve scientific accuracy or artistic rendering. Some of my images are on Wikipedia so I feel it's important to keep those inline with current thinking.

Jurassic Park is my earliest cinema memory (roles eyes). I’m not sure which one came first JP or the magazine. Either way,

Right now I’m currently working on an art project that is basically balancing out the design of the dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals of the Jurassic Park/world franchise with the current scientific research and discoveries and I was wondering if I could use your artwork as reference material I promise that I’ll credit you for it please
