These are a few amazing prints I'd love to own but cannot afford.

Activity


I've noticed that lately I've been getting an increasing amount of watchers, so I'm going to grace y'all with an update. In the last year or so I have been quietly peaking in on deviantART keeping up on my messages, but evidently I've been otherwise inactive. Allow me to explain myself.

About a year ago now (around December 2013) my laptop (which until recently was the only computer I had to use Photoshop on) went south (due to a possible virus) and couldn't handle games or even Photoshop anymore, so I could no longer color my drawings, which slammed the breaks on my activity here and drove it to a screeching halt. Around that same time I was also overdosing on school-related stress, which was slowly killing me, so I also lacked the time and energy to draw much.

Shortly after I finished school, I went south too for an internship at a small private zoo in Georgia, which has kept me busy most of this year since starting in May. I am loving it, but it feels like an underpaid full-time job (not that I'm complaining, I really do love it), so I haven't had any time or money to purchase new equipment so I can use Photoshop again, or even just get my drawings scanned onto the computer in the first place. However, for my birthday recently my parents did buy me a new computer, so all I need now is a scanner and I can resume my activity on deviantART again. I will say this though, my new computer has been a hassle to set up and due to poor packaging I actually need to get a replacement video card, so... Once all that is dealt with I'll hopefully be more active on deviantART again.

Until then, thank you all so much for your appreciation for my art and your support! It really inspires me.

Thoughts on the new Spinosaurus discoveries?

I was skeptical at first, because quadrupedal locomotion has been suggested for Spinosaurus before, but to me the notion of a quadrupedal theropod is laughable because of course theropods had supinated wrists that would have disallowed them from walking on all fours in the same manner mammals do--which is how it's always depicted. That being said, the newly-discovered limp proportions of Spinosaurus are so radical it forced the authors to propose a unique supinated knuckle-walking stance that I have come to accept. Deep down, Spinosaurus always did look like a quadruped to me, but until the correct limb proportions were discovered it was never a feasible notion to me. I personally welcome the new Spinosaurus and hope it takes off in mainstream paleontology as well as popular culture. Spinosaurus has always been one of my favorite dinosaurs, but now that it is such a more beautifully complete animal, I can now confidently say it is my #1 favorite dinosaur.
