Parastrapotherium martiale - repaint by Zimices Parastrapotherium martiale - repaint by Zimices
English: A continuation of my collaboration with :iconjwartwork: Since that in the original image of Parastrapotherium vs. Pyrotherium (fav.me/d585r1j) the features of the former appears very obscured, I've decided made a repaint the Parastrapotherium... I hope you like it this rehash of this giant astrapothere :)

Una continuación de la colaboración con :iconjwartwork: Dado que en la imagen original del Parastrapotherium vs. Pyrotherium (fav.me/d585r1j) los rasgos del primero aparecen muy obscurecidos, he decidido repintar el Parastrapotherium... espero les guste este refrito del astrapoterio gigante :)

¡Muchas gracias! sí, con ese cuerpo robusto y la combinación trompa-colmillos son animales que recuerdan a ciertos elefantes primitivos, aunque en otras me recuerdan más a los tapires. Eso sí, este no es un notoungulado, los astrapoterios son un grupo distinto y eso precisamente forma parte del misterio de su parentesco - ¿qué tan relacionados estaban los mamíferos de pezuña de Suramérica entre ellos? y ¿con los de otras partes del mundo? la idea de que estuvieran emparentados con los afroterios es interesante, pero creo que no ha sido muy tomada en cuenta. O por lo menos es muy difícil de probar con los fósiles tan limitados que hay.

los notoungulados y astrapoterios quizas fueron parientes muy cercanos y resulta interesante pensar que quizas fueron  afroterios

Tal vez sí, tal vez no, aunque también está la posibilidad de que más que afroterios fueran primos suyos en un grupo mayor llamado Atlantogenata. Ojalá alguien pudiera recuparar ADN de un toxodonte para hacer un análisis molecular que despeje esas dudas :)

No para nada, es un astrapoterio, un grupo de mamíferos distintos (de hecho los tapires no tienen colmillos tan desarrollados). Igual en la historia de los mamíferos hubo y hay varios grupos con algún tipo de trompa :)

Veo que no entendemos esa palabra del mismo modo... para mí va en el sentido de volver a presentar algo después de un tiempo sin demasiados cambios... bueno, dejémoslo en renovación :)

Haha, well, to be honest, I think my texture kinda sucks... :( It's not realistic and has all blobs and circles everywhere... :hmm:

Anyway, the light allows that the animal have volume, then the appliaction of the paint is easy. By the way, how do you texture your animals?

I use a standard brush-brush (I don't know how to call it else :hmm:) with opacity to click many times and every now and then I change the colour to make it look the way I want it to. It mainly works for scales, but for mammalian-skin... no. :no: I don't know how other people colour and keep the original drawing preserved... [link] With my drawings it always fades away after too many clicks of texture... :o

I really don't know how these works, although my guess is that maye they not only use the original drawing as a basis but that they use the drawing over the painted version...

Hmm, yes... But then, how do you colour:?

I made a simple color to delineate the main lines of the original drawing, then I fill with the colours that I need and later I paint the details using dark versions of the colors over the lines that I made first.

Whoa nice, you really get feel of the distinct texture from that shading(what with the various colorations of the skin).

Haven't seen you around HC lately Zimices, how've you been?

Jeje, la mayoría de los comentarios destaca eso. Me doy cuenta que la pintura de Photoshop sobre esa piel "plástica" del modelo original le da un aspecto interesante :)
