Artwork of the Day #13!!!!!!!!!!!!

Artist Reconstruction of the amazing Toodontid, Jenfengopteryx elegans. This is a preview for the 13th Fossil Fact where I will be discussing the "Dino-Bird Theory" in Paleontology. Stay Tuned as this will be my first post in a good while! :) Did you miss me? The Raptor Is Back!!

What a vivid rendering! Who's the artist?

Ian said...

It's about time! I'm looking forward to your next post. The dino-bird is one of my favorite paleo subjects, though you would probably already get that idea due to the number of blog posts I make about the topic.

I like that picture!

hmmm.... wonder who did it!

Raptor Lewis said...

Andy and Dinorider- I wish I could say....Sadly, the artist wasn't wise enough (or was it the guy who borrowed it?) to put the signature on it or the re-print. It is, indeed, a "vivid rendering," which is why I chose it. :)

Ian- I expected as much from my loyal readers. lol! :) Normally, I would be a little annoyed by the exasperated remark, but it's the truth and I can't be mad if you guys were really agitated by my absence. ;) And, yes, about your fascination with the theory, I figured as much as soon as you published the post on "Protoavis."

I believe that's Matt Martyniuk's Jinfengopteryx, just uncolored: http://www.azhdarcho.com/Art/Paleoart/jinfengopteryx.htm
