Another dromaeosaur, another illustration: meet Acheroraptor, the newly-described Hell Creek dromaeosaur! This velociraptorine has been previously known only from a handful of teeth, but now has a legitimate dentary and maxilla to its name.
All Your Yesterdays, a new book by C.M. Koseman of Irregular Books, has just been released and is now available for download! Brought to you by the same group that published the game-changing paleoart book All Yesterdays, All Your Yesterdays is a compilation of paleoart from dozens of different artists that seek to explore unusual aspects of rational paleontological speculation. I have three pieces in the tome: two Microraptors doing unusual things, and a Utahraptor being unusual just by virtue of not trying to kill anything. Many other aspiring and talented paleoartists have tackled such scenarios as lactating stem-mammals, polycephaly and cancer in dinosaurs, and many unusual - though often quite reasonable - display structures.
The book is available for free download, but please consider donating to keep the fine folks at Irregular Books producing fabulous work!
New painting has been added to the paleoart section of the site - the esteemed Utahraptor ostrommaysorum, the largest currently-known dromaeosaur. But how accurate can any reconstruction of Utahraptor be at this point in time? See it here and learn why this is the case.
