Did Dinosaurs Have Lips? Paleoartist Puts a Face on Ancient Bones. CHICAGO—After careful consideration, Tyler Keillor made a decision: T. rex had lips.

Did Dinosaurs Have Lips? Paleoartist Puts a Face on Ancient Bones

In the debate over dinosaurs’ “oral margin,” one of the country’s top paleoartists has taken sides. Mr. Keillor’s job is to create “flesh models” of dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals based on fossil evidence—giving creatures that died millions of years ago a face, a story and sometimes lips. Using traditional mediums like clay and resin, as well as CT scanning and 3-D printing, he is at the forefront of incorporating digital art and technology into paleontology. Mr. Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs: Vintage Dinosaur Art: Prehistoric Monsters. A slightly unusual entry this week - in fact, it's a book completely devoid of illustrations. Instead, it's packed full of photographs by Jean Philippe-Varin that veer wildly from the artistically impressive to the downright hilarious - usually dependent upon the subject.

The best ones feature life-sized models that, while almost always scientifically obsolete, are nevertheless quite awe-inspiring through their sheer size and the craftmanship involved (most of them aren't your usual goofy 1980s fibreglass monstrosities). The worst photos feature toys. We'll get to those in due course. The Diplodocus on the cover is certainly very retro, but it's an impressive photograph nonetheless - the detailing in the sculpt is admirable, and the lush scenery is suitably evocative (actually, it reminds me of the Hawaiian locations used in Jurassic Park , although this book - from 1987 - predates the film by some years).

In a similar vein (and colour), here's a Parasaurolophus . And so, to the toys. Re-texturing a Poser Model With ZBrush. Pterosaurs: Adapted for Flight. Sculpture. Rugops (meaning "wrinkle face") is a genus of theropod dinosaur which inhabited what is now Africa approximately 95 million years ago.

Encuentran en Dmanisi (Georgia) el cráneo del "Homo Temprano" de 1,8 millones de años de antigüedad – Arqueología, Historia Antigua y Medieval - Terrae Antiqvae

J.H. MATTERNES El hallazgo de un extraño cráneo de 1,8 millones de años de antigüedad en Dmanisi, Georgia, puede transformar profundamente lo que creíamos saber sobre la evolución humana. Estos restos espectaculares, conocidos como Cráneo 5, se distinguen por combinar una pequeña caja craneal con grandes dientes y una mandíbula prominente, alargada y simiesca, rasgos que hasta ahora nunca habían sido observados juntos en un hombre primitivo. RANDOM ACTION HOUR .:. Cadillacs And Dinosaurs. By Ragey From 1994 to 1998 a few VHS tapes were released, containing either two to three episodes on each of them; they're still around on Amazon for variable prices, some as low as $2 and some reaching up to $30.

RANDOM ACTION HOUR .:. Cadillacs And Dinosaurs

The series has yet to get an official DVD release, presumably due to trademark hiccups with General Motors. Amazon offers (offered?) A Video On Demand service, charging $2 for each episode or $21 for the whole series; I can't verify the quality of the service, as it's blocked to anyone outside of the United States. JONATHAN KUO.

Jurassic dinosaurs as illustrated by Peter Zallinger: these are svelte, lightweight animals typical of the late 1970s and 80s. Hat-tip to LITC for the scan. Anyone who knows anything about Mesozoic dinosaurs will be – or certainly should be – familiar with the fact that our view of what these animals looked like in life has changed substantially within the last several decades. The ‘dinosaur renaissance’ of the late 1960s and 70s saw the flabby-bodied, tail-dragging behemoths of earlier decades be replaced by sprightly, athletic animals with big, bulging limb muscles, erect tails, and dashing patterns and colour schemes.

Robert Bakker's dinosaurs (and other extinct animals) really changed the game in terms of how these animals became depicted in life. Article: Patterns in Palaeontology > Patterns in Palaeontology: Palaeoart – fossil fantasies or recreating lost reality? By Mark P.

Article: Patterns in Palaeontology > Patterns in Palaeontology: Palaeoart – fossil fantasies or recreating lost reality?

Witton*1 Introduction: Illustrations, sculptures and animations of fossil organisms and the world around them are mainstays of palaeontology. Such restorations, known as palaeoart, are more important than they may at first seem: they help to communicate palaeontological ideas across age and language barriers; have inspired generations of scientists; and have provided the foundation of an international industry of palaeontology-themed merchandise and media worth hundreds of millions of pounds. Due to its increasing prominence and popularity, palaeoart is routinely scrutinized by scientists and the public alike. To address this concern, we must first consider the methods employed by palaeoartists to research and execute their reconstructions.

Although introduced to the general public by the highly successful documentary WWD, Postosucus remain one of the more obscure figure out.It did not enjoy the same fame that others from the series, such as Liopleurodon, Ornithucheirus, Muttaburrasaurus, and Torosaurus received.Perhaps it is due to the fact that the Rauisuchian are poorly known group of prehistoric predators that we have not seen more figures of them.Fortunately, Toyway included it in their official WWD line of toy figures, offering us the first Postosuchus toy figure offered.The new Safari 2009 postosuchus and a JP figure join their WWD predecessor as only a handful of figures currently available.

Both the WS and WWD figures are nicely done, showing great details. The WWD figures is the more colorful of the trio with it's striking red and black coloration.The Safari version is more subdued in it's coloring, with mostly dark brown and olive. The JP figure, I believe, comes in two versions: A brown and a blue. Pravěká zvířata. Elasmosaurs by Sammy Hall from the Global Outfitters' Wildlife Art. Chiodo Bros.' Inter-Dimensional Safari.

Visiting your local boot sale in London is almost always guarantee that you’ll find some new dinosaur toy rejects… that’s what happened couple weeks ago: spent £2 and got a full bag of selected dinotoys… among which I found a pretty accurate (unknown make to me at least) Triceratops that gave me an idea… Everytime I see something that is close of what I expect I have to go further.

This time I did what I always wanted to do to many other of my collectible models but had never dare! For the first time here it is in all its glory: Triceratops with my interpretation of the new skin topography! It has been extremely fun and very challenging; I really think this is the closest I could get to really get the impression of the new, spiky Triceratops everybody is talking about… and is based on pictures of the real thing!

Prehistoric Australia Part 1. Dinosaurs and Reconstructions. Guanlong by Safari ltd, Wild Safari Dinos 2011. Uno dei modelli Safari ltd usciti quest’anno che ha fatto discutere di più i collezionisti è stato il Guanlong: c’è chi lo ha amato sin dal primo istante nonostante i suoi difetti e c’è chi lo ha subito considerato uno scherzo di natura. Nonostante la sua scoperta sia una delle più importanti nel mondo paleontologico negli ultimi anni, il Guanlong è stato raramente riprodotto come giocattolo o modellino e non era presente in nessuna collezione delle marche più famose.
