While fishing for food, Black Hook finds a way to annoy his partner Itaii by efortlessly catching two rather large river coelacanths as she struggles with just one small fish.
Scouting Ahead
During a routine patrol, something catches Pucu's attention, something that requires her to split from her Plated Thornbeast partner if she wants to remain undetected. she must now proceed with caution as her weapons are stored in her partner's dorsal spikes.
Even if Pucu's role in her tribe is akin to cavalry archer, they aren't constantly at war or under attack, so she can't always apply her "charge at the enemy while firing" approach, especially when on perimeter patrol, where she is expected to report back in case she finds anything or something happens. She hates it, but she is as duty-bound as her best friend Itzimitzin. Which means she always follows the rules, even if it annoys her to no end.
The Witch of the Wilds
And now, a piece of fan art of one of my favourite videogame characters ever. Morrigan, the Witch of the Wilds from Dragon Age: Origins and Inquisition.
Besides being clearly desgned as a "sexy" character, I love her personality, even if it's too abrasive and straightforward, she's basically a fantasy version of Emma Frost, a jerk that secretly cares and is never without a sharp remark on her tongue.
Cretaceous Aerophonist
A bull Parasaurolophus interrupts its morning drink to rear up and assess wether a male newcomer is a threat or a harmless distraction in the swampy forests of eastern Canada 75 million years ago.
Parasaurolophus ("near Saurolophus" or "near-crested lizard", because both dinosaurs have a nasal crest) was a rather iconic crested hadrosaur that lived in North America in the late Cretaceous. Like other members of its family, the lambeosaurines, it had a bony crest extending from its nasal bone that was hollow with air passages that allowed it to be used as both an acoustic and visual signaling device. Over the years, both digital and physical reconstructions of the nasal crest have been built by researchers, letting us have a glimpse of what these animals might have sounded like. Also like other hadrosaurs it had a dental battery that allowed it to process even the thoughest plant matter into a digestible paste, which probably contributed to the hadrosaurian success, in fact, these dinosaurs were some of the most successful herbivores in the history of Earth. This crested vegetarian measured around 10 meters in length when fully-grown.

I've never actually drawn Parasaurolophus for this site. For some reason, despite its iconic crest and the interesting tidbits we know about this animal, I've never actually wanted to draw it. Also, this was one of the first dinosaurs i ever drew, a monstrous blob with spiral eyes and the long crest extending almost as far as the tail.
A lone Therizinosaurus lumbers out of the edge of the forest into the arid plains of what today is southwestern Mongolia, 70 million years ago.
Therizinosaurus ("scythe lizard") was one of the last and largest members of its group, the Therizinosauria. It, like many other derived members of the group, was a theropod with adaptations toward a vegetarian lifestyle, such as a horny beak for shearing and a large abdominal cavity that housed the guts necessary to process plant matter. Its most remarkable feature were its meter-long claws, which had sharp inner edges and were vaguely sickle-shaped. Originally, it was thought that these claws belonged to a turtle or turtle-like reptile (its full name, Therizinosaurus cheloniformis means "turtle-shaped scythe lizard"), and as scientists realized the claws belonged to a theropod dinosaur it was hypothesized that it was some kind of hyper-aggresive predator that disemboweled prey with those huge claws. As paleontological knowledge of this animal and its relatives has progressed, we now believe these animals were similar to the extinct ground sloths in both lifestyle and ecological niches, as slow browsers that used their claws to manipulate foods and as a defense mechanism. Therizinosaurus was almost as large as Tyrannosaurus rex, with comparable weight, but it was taller and shorter, with an estimated length of 10 meters.

Even though therizinosaurs are some of the weirdest animals to even walk the Earth, I personally don't like to draw them, as I think I don't really get their body structure and gait. Nevertheless, I decided to give it a shot and added a fluffy neck for display and large eyelashes to keep the desert sands at bay.
Hello, everyone!
It's been almost a year since I last posted a Journal entry and... while I think very few actually do read the journal, I think now it's as good a time as any to post an update.
Firstly, I'm officially out of school. And not in a good way. Mostly because of time mismanagement, I got myself kicked out of the Biology courses of the University of Guanajuato. But since I have an uncanny luck for second chances, my journey to become an actual paleontologist hasn't quite ended. I am going to start the Biology undergraduate courses in San Luis Potosí, the compatible subjects between both courses will be validated again, and I'll be living with my siblings from now on. Which is good too, because the moment I got expelled from Guanajuato, I fell into a deep, deep depression. Fortunately, I was offered (and took) professional help, and it coupled with medication and the company provided by my family is helping me far more than I expected.
On the subject of health, it turns out that my eyesight is worse than I thought but not as bad as it could be, so I'll be wearing glasses from now on. The good news are that according to the optometrist, my condition doesn't seem to be worsening so, as Spidey would say, thanks for the small favors.
Also, I became an actual paleoartist. Or what my narrow view defines as an "actual" paleoartist, anyway. My brother comissioned some restorations for his undergraduate thesis, on the remains of a marine crocodile, and now my art is actually published in scientific material. So yay me. I'm participating in a paleontology congress with my paleoart, too, so that is super exciting and a step forward, too.
All in all, the future doesn't look bleak, even if it isn't at all what I wanted a few months ago. But hey, that's life. It never goes the way you expect it to.

Well... First, if you liked my dA home enough to scroll down here, I'd like to thank you for stopping by. I'm just a guy with a huge outer child who enjoys all things silly in life.
Hmph... I guess that's about it.
But thanks for stopping by, anyways, I hope you'll enjoy my little gallery.
