What do you, fellow humans, think is the best way to update an illustration on DeviantArt? What follows is my overthinking... The reason for asking is that I often update my illustrations a fair bit; to either improve scientific accuracy or artistic rendering.

It has a brightly coloured John Sibbick Parasaurolophus on the front. The issue was copyrighted in 1993 the same year Jurassic Park came out (so I'm asuming thats about the year I received it). Jurassic Park is my earliest cinema memory (roles eyes). I’m not sure which one came first JP or the magazine. Either way,

The first of my art project which is the tyrannosaurus rex is complete and posted on deviantart and you are credited for the reference material dude

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
