Dinosaur Provincial Park by Eurwentala
Dinosaur Provincial Park
Reconstructions of some of the angiosperm plants of Late Cretaceous Canada. These are plants known from leaf and twig fossils from the Dinosaur Provincial Park, much more famous for it's dinosaurs. Unfortunately, none of them have been properly described, and the only paper actually illustrating some of them is from 1965 and seems unobtainable. I'm starting to understand why paleoartists so often settle for random greenery.

These were made using photographs of fossils from other Late Cretaceous North American locations and the written descriptions in Currie & Koppelhus's superb book on Dinosaur Provincial Park, in addition to the closest living relatives of these plants. The quotations are from the book.

The main idea was to illustrate my latest paleobotany article: hummingdinosaur.wordpress.com/…

And it's part four of my Botany for paleoartists blog posts. This time, we are taking a closer look at a particular fossil site: Dinosaur Provincial Park from the Late Cretaceous of Canada. That's the place where Daspletosaurus and Chasmosaurus are from, among others.

You'll see why writing it took so long when you take a look at the article. Finding any actual information was hard, finding proper references for reconstructions a nightmare. But it's finally here and I hope it will be of use.

Modern Raptor Skeleton by Eurwentala
Modern Raptor Skeleton
A rather malnourished eagle. It's supposed to be a golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos), but for the lack of proper references, it's mostly modeled after the Australian wedge-tailed eagle (A. audax).

Made for Sieppo, a children's magazine published by The Finnish Association for Nature Conservation.

Black markers and Photoshop.

Wuuuh ihan siis tunnet Dinomaniacin ja te kummatkin olette tiedostaneet olemassaoloni. Hui nyt kuumottaa :D Ja muuten tä varmaa kuulostaa tyhmältä mutta mun mielestä tosi siistii et sentää jotku naisetki tykkää esihistoriasta ja vielä harrastaa paleotaidetta.
Mun mielestä ootte kummatki tosi hienoja taiteilijoita ja jostai syystä en oo viel watchannu sua niinpä siis watchaan nyt :D

Heh, joo. Itse asiassa löimme juuri Dinomaniacin kanssa hynttyyt yhteen. Tule kylään jos olet pääkaupunkiseudulla. :)

Enhän ole sentään edes Suomen ainoa paleotaidetta harrastava nainen. On meitä ainakin toinenkin.

We're going to start endorsing paleo-artist hear on Da for my group now, and I chose you as my first endorsement because I really like your work. Are you okay with that?
