#Sciart explores the relationship between science, art, and illustration.
Recently, paleoart was mashed up with lasers ("8 o'clock, day one!"). This has been done before. And again. And it will likely happen again and again.
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.
Last year, the authors of the Symbiartic blog on ScientificAmerican.com -- Glendon Mellow, Kalliopi Monoyios, and Katie McKissick -- summoned an epic storm of amazing and informative scientific artwork on Twitter with the
Tarbosaurus bataar. With apologies to Warhol, but that won't keep me from selling prints and such of this guy. These guys.
Painted for the Shields and Spears art show: an albino Pachyrhinosaurus lakustai at sunset. Brooks Range, Cretaceous Alaska. This image earned an Honorable Mention ribbon at the 2015 Alaska State Fair in Palmer. Prints and other products for this image are available here.
