Fuzzy Apatosaurus Juvenile by Himmapaan Fuzzy Apatosaurus Juvenile by Himmapaan
This perhaps rather provocative illustration was commissioned by Brian Switek for his forthcoming book, My Beloved Brontosaurus. Do please visit this Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs post to read a little more about it (certainly, please do so before you raise an outcry. Or you may expect something like this or this ;)). The image quality in the blog entry is better too and doesn't suffer from the same woeful compression as here.

ETA: Matt Wedel has also made a few observations on this over on SV-POW.

Coloured pencils, sepia ink, and gouache on recycled paper.

Now that you have drawn this, it looks like sauropods are supposed to have feathers.

I love the fuzziness! I can imagine this would be provocative for traditionalists, but what's science without some wild hypotheses to encourage further research? ;) Anyway, he's adorable and beautiful.

:giggle: It really is amazing the range of things that can be called provocative!

It depends on many things, I'm afraid. This was for a publication, so it was not unlike most of my other work. I find it very hard to fit in personal commissions and to know how to price it.

Fair enough. ;p

You know what I'd love to see? The Niroot Puttapipat Pop-Up Book of Dinosaurs. :nod:
