I spend quite a lot of time sketching and doodling at school, and while most are pretty rubbish, some turn out somewhat okay, so here’s a selection of my personal favourites:
- "Kulindodromeus", the filamented ornithischian (please excuse the inexcusable misspelling).
- An Einiosaurus. The pencil mark over its eye was an accident (someone bumped into me), although I suppose it could work as a marking or something.
- A bunch of sauropods.
- Some Atopodentatus studies.
- An Acrocanthosaurus, fast becoming my favourite carnosaur.
All were done without reference, so they’re probably inaccurate.
The second in my Life-Sized Little (Pterosaurs/Dinosaurs) series, Pterodactylus, which is much smaller. If you want to see the actual size, the full image width is the same as and A4 sheet - so make your browser window that big and zoom in.
(This one is much more affordable, hint hint!)

Giganotosaurus with it’s yap shut. Like you would probably have seen it 90% of the time.
The newly described Torvosaurus gurnseyi keeping it’s mouth shut, much as I had to the last several months waiting for it to make it into press. This image is a bit of an extra exclusive, as I probably won’t bother to post the open-mouthed version until later in the weekend.
This is not the reconstruction in the PLOS ONE paper by the way - this is my reconstruction of the skull, which differs somewhat from the modifications made in the paper.
Science marches on, and our understanding of dinosaurs is constantly being updated.
And, sometimes, it’s funny how certain changes seem to be accepted by the general public easier than others.

Yet another update to my Tarbosaurus bataar and Gallimimus bullatus painting, this time to put feathers on the tyrannosaur.
