I guess this is the best place to make an introduction post, and get directly to the art business.

Quaternary geology research assistant, armchair paleontologist. Moderately accomplished amateur artist with interest in prehistoric wildlife/scientific illustration while also dabbling in science fiction and fantasy.
Been using ArtRage on and off since 2004. Recently bought a new Wacom tablet and with the bundled ArtRage install I'm reacquainting myself with art after a dry spell sorting out my life.

Below are those recent works treating more or less seriously the recent description of a giant feathered tyrannosaur, Yutyrannus huali. The current challenge now is emulating my pencil technique in digital format with the more serious drawing and perhaps see if I can channel Wayne Barlowe with the less serious one ;)

Thank you very much for the warm welcome and for the compliments :)

Older work while we're at it... and don't be shy to toss in a critique edgewise: that's why I came here after all.
