More entries for the #Sciart #Tweetstorm - three works in progress for Wednesday.
First up is a lone Nanuqsaurus that will be used in a few ideas and projects I have on the back burner. Secondly, a layout for a piece depicting the paleoenvironment of Alaska's North Slope during the Late Cretaceous period, with a pint-sized tyrant realizing he blundered into the wrong part of the Colville River delta. Last, a pair of azhdarchid pterosaurs pause for a drink in Denali, leaving their footprints along the side of a stream.
Deinocheirus! As might be inferred from the title of this post, this is what's in my image-editing application at the moment (among other things, but for sciart, am I going to share those? Obviously not).
This is an intermediate state wherein I block out the areas to be converted to vector. The colors are to keep me from being confused when I zoom in; I don't want gaps in some areas, nor much overlap in others. Proper colors will be applied after it's vectorized in Illustrator.
Update: added a new version of the same image—made the mandible a bit more robust & such.
Some progress on that Deinocheirus skull. Anything I should change?
