My Bio

Hi all! My name is Ildar Gismatullin, I am 20 years old. I have always admired nature, but started to draw dinosaurs only since I was 6 years old. But still prehistoric animals - the main subject of my work. I love the theropods, so mainly draw them. However, I am also attracted to animals from more ancient times, especially the non-mammalian synapsids ("mammal-like reptiles"). I hope that Paleozoic animals will eventually become more likely to appear in my gallery.


For my works I use skeletal reconstructions, mainly by Scott Hartman and Gregory Paul, if possible. Otherwise, I try to find such references what there is (but, of course not those, that by David Peters).


Current residence: Ulyanovsk, Russia

Favorite genre of music: some kinds of Metal.
