Dinosaur Art: The World’s Greatest Paleoart Edited By Steve White Brings Dinosaurs to Life
If you were the type of kid that looked at the pictures rather than read the book, then Dinosaur Art Edited By Steve White is a book you don’t want to miss out on. That’s not to say that the introduction from Scott Sampson isn’t great or the foreword by Philip Currie for that matter…but for me, this book is about the pictures.
A Look Inside Dinosaur Art: The World’s Greatest Paleoart
The detail in this piece by Raul Martin is so incredible that it almost resembles a photograph. The texture of the feathers and the layout of the piece in general are quite simply amazing.
Although I admit that this piece by Robert Nicholls terrifies me, it simultaneously leaves me in sheer awe of its coloration. Now I’m not a fan of marine reptiles…actually, I’m not a fan of marine anything if we’re being honest but the shading in this piece as well as the unique skin coloration of this mighty beast are beautiful.
This piece by Julius Cstonyicatches my eye simply because of the viewpoint it is created from. Certainly the variation in species is nice, and I enjoy seeing interpretations of texture and coloration, but for me the real grab of this piece is imagining that I am looking out on to these grazing herbivores while this sharp toothed theropod stands beside me.
There are people who have talent that is so mind blowing that it…well, blows my mind and Douglas Henderson is most certainly one of them. The translucence in the water of this piece and the lighting behind the clouds is enough to make this thalassophobe unable to tear her eyes away.
