This is an art gallery, not a science site. Most of the art here is nature and science inspired, but is NOT scientific illustration. Expect little accuracy, and you may actually enjoy it. :B

PS- Kind of funny how I have to specify this, this being an art site and all...

Prize Fighters Of Antiquity! by HodariNundu
Prize Fighters Of Antiquity!
A veces dibujar bichos poco conocidos en situaciones poco comunes no es suficiente :B Tienes que volver a los clásicos...
Sigo pensando que T. rex con plumas es una rara mezcla de gracioso y atemorizante... eso o así me sale a mí XD

Sometimes, drawing little known creatures in unusual situations is not enough :B You gotta go back to the classics...
I keep thinking that feathery T. rex is a weird mix of funny-looking and scary... although that may be just my style XD

Psittacosaurus, unfinished and loving it by HodariNundu
Psittacosaurus, unfinished and loving it
Inspirado en el descubrimiento (y posterior reconstrucción) de un psittacosaurio muy bien preservado, el cual sugiere que parecían una impía (pero adorable) mezcla de tortuga, perico y ET. El especimen además reveló los colores de este dinosaurio mas aproximadamente a la realidad que cualquier otro dino no emplumado conocido hasta la fecha, y sugiere que su principal defensa consistia en pasar desapercibido en el suelo del bosque, gracias a su camuflaje. Claro que no sería un Hodari Nundu original si no tuviera esa pizca de locura en la mirada -@ Lapices de colores

Inspired by the discovery (and subsequent reconstruction) of a very well preserved psittacosaur, which suggests they looked like an unholy mix between a turtle, a budgie and ET. The specimen also revealed the colors of this dinosaur closer to reality than any other known non-feathered dino, suggesting its main defense consisted on hiding on the forest floor from the eyes of predators, thanks to its natural camouflage.  Of course, it wouldn´t be a genuine Hodari Nundu if it didn´t have that madness in its eyes -@ made with colored pencils

As I implied in the previous journal, I'm currently working at a Museum, and although most of my time is spent in a small stuffy room cataloguing 100 year old insects, sometimes I wander around the actual displays. I think this one is my favorite and I wanted to share it with you guys (sorry bout the poor quality; took them with my phone, no flash allowed and the light is pretty dim inside)

As you probably guessed, this is a skull of the really fantastic Imperial Woodpecker (Campephilus imperialis) which was the largest woodpecker in the world. It lived in Mexico and parts of the US but is believed to have gone extinct in its last sanctuary (the mountains of western Mexico) some time around the 50s or 60s. There's been lots of claims of sightings, however; back when I was teaching I heard from people who lived in villages up in mountains and swore the bird was still alive. Some of the sightings may actually be of smaller but similar looking species, but I do hope there's still a few Imperials left, away from the eyes of man!

I think the stuffed bird is a red-bellied woodpecker, which is about middle sized for woodpecker standards. The Imperial's skull is nearly as long as the entire body of the red-bellied, if you leave the tail and wing feathers out!

The Imperial woodpecker supposedly made a sound like a small trumpet, and was as big as a raven. There's a video of a living female here; to my knowledge, the only one ever recorded.

Hey Hodari, here's a question for ya.

OK so you're a Paleontologist and you're out in the field looking for new prehistoric species, it can be anything, new dinosaurs, new Prehistoric mammals, pterosaurs, prehistoric reptiles whatever....as long you make that good money out on them bone beds coolrudeshadesplz  but anyway, here's the question. The god of Fossils or whatever appears before you, he makes you an offer. To help you out, he's willing to reveal the locations of three unknown prehistoric animals for you to discover but you can pick one and the rest are fair game for anyone else, here's your options.

1. A giant feline, it has a Skeletal structure similar to a lion but it's the size of an elephant....so essentially a GIANT prehistoric lion in....The Congo...but its fossil location is in the epicenter of Guerilla country...and they're having a SEVERE Ebola and Zika Virus outbreak as well

2. A massive long legged crocodilian, it's the size of a Triceratops and has a mouth full of teeth, two of which are saber teeth, it's completely terrestrial and it's made for hunting medium to large prey items....its fossil location though is also the resting place for a field of landmines that haven't gone off that were leftovers from a war....it's also somewhere in the Middle East

3. A massive humanoid ape that bears a striking resemblance to early apes like Australopithecus, it's stands 15ft tall and is very bulky, think Eren Yeager's titan form but hairy and more Ape-like, it also appears to have something clutched in its hands....it's....a sandwich....its fossil location though is on an island that's infested with snakes so venomous, one bite will LITERALLY dissolve your flesh in minutes and there is no anti-venom for its bite

Which one do you pick

Oh, man, this is what I get for posting those stupid polls, isn´t it?

I’m really overthinking this… ok, so here’s what went through my mind, almost verbatim.

What does this god of fossils look like? Is he definitely, evidently, unmistakably a supernatural entity, or does he look like an average Joe? I’d be highly skeptical if he was the latter. I’d ask for proof that a), I’m not hallucinating after being under the sun all day, b) he REALLY is the god of fossils, I don´t care how he proves it, and c), the fossils he speaks of are the real deal and not fakes purposedly planted to make a fool of me (or get me killed). I mean, the sandwich-holding giant ape sounds really suspicious.

Also, I could argue that since he’s already revealed the identity of all three, the thrill of finding them would be greatly lessened and so I wouldn´t necessarily care to go personally to those hellish places; I could just as easily hire some crazy people to get the fossils to me.
Still, I’d want to know what would happen to me if I picked one but then went after the other two as well (after all, I find it unlikely anyone else would be going after them any time soon). Would I be cursed or punished in any way if I did? If not, here’s what I’d do:
I’d abandon my current dig, and use the funding to travel to the island of the flesh-melting snakes, where I’d capture several of the beauties (which shouldn´t be a problem since I’ve worked with reptiles before and I’m at ease around them, and you didn´t specify anything about their temper or aggression levels, which I assume are not on the rabid-mad level). Alternatively I could just pay people to catch them for me.
Then I’d extract a good amount of venom and weaponize it. Hey, in a world where there are gods of fossils, I can totally weaponize snake venom.

Next I’d contact the Congolese guerilla and send them a sample of the weaponized venom, hoping that they’ll test it, fall in love with its effects, and request a larger shipment to use against… whoever their enemy is. If all goes well, they’ll pay me enough money to hire a team of people and send them to the Middle East site to clear the land of mines, so I can safely dig for the giant crocodile skeleton. (Mind you, the god of fossils should have given me proof that the skeleton is still there, and that it hasn´t been blown to bits by a mine, otherwise, why bother). So there’, if Step 1 goes well, I get the giant croc.
Step 2 would be to wait till the guerilla requests a second shipment of venom, as well as the antidote I told them was being produced. They don´t wanna die accidentally by their own weapon. Problem is, as you specified, there is no antidote to the venom. So, after they make the second payment, I’d send them crates with both venom and what they’d think is the antidote… except the latter would be a delayed-action version of the same venom. They never suspect a thing, they inject themselves, after a while they all die, I’m free of any further commitment with such unsavory characters, AND the area becomes considerably safer. Any survivors will probably die of ebola and zika anyway, and when the epidemics subside, I’ll be able to dig up the giant cat with relative ease, which will make my inner cat boy very happy.
Step 3, I’d use the money they paid for the second shipment to fund the dig for the giant ape.

On the other hand if the Lord of Bones did threaten to curse me if I tried to cheat, then… I’d probably pass. I mean, like I said, it’s not like there would be a huge sense of discovery seeing as he already revealed what they are and what they look like.

O...O Hot damn, you really did over think eh I guess when you ask stupid questions you get either stupid or overthought answers also dude, that was some dark shit you did to those Guerrillas, I would have asked nicely to dig first and if they don't kill me then I go...bio warfare on their asses. To try and answer some of your questions, the fossil god has a pretty divine look, like Jesus with dinosaur bones and stuff and like Jesus...you just gotta trust him, he's extremely honest to. As for the sandwich, it's a time anamoly thing like they found a screw in a Trilobite fossil and the screw is just as ok as the rock it was in, nobody could have put it there as it was millions of years old also the island infested with the flesh melting snakes....that's actually a real place, I didn't make that up, those snakes are mean as fuck to, there's little prey on their island and they often resort to cannibalism. Well the whole theme of the scenario was that you're a paleontologist who's having shitty luck and can't find shit and I guess divine intervention tries to give you a break, I don't think that I emphasized that enough and that's my fault.

Alright Mr.Smartass, I have another question for you. This time, You have two options, you have to pick one of these women to have sex with. Your first option is an old hag, she's head to toe covered in wrinkles, her breasts are so saggy, they drag on the ground and get splinters in the nipples once in a blue moon, her nails and toenails are practically talons, teeth are falling out her mouth as she speaks and she smells of...cherries you can do her in whatever way you choose also no foreplay or oral or finger banging, just put the peg in the hole. Your second option is a beautiful woman, beautiful skin, eyes hair. Nice racks and a soft round ass that you could you use for bongo practice, the catch...she has the face of a monster, a horrific monster, like you'd scream in terror and piss yourself just by looking at her face, you can do her any way you want but no matter which position she's in, she will be glaring you in the face and you MUST KEEP EYE CONTACT otherwise if you fail to do so...she'll give you a micropenis and steal your balls also a bag or a mask you put on her will immediately disintegrate, aside from that, she has a soft beautiful voice, like an angel so...who will you choose?...

I did think the snake island sounded a lot like Queimada Grande :B

Re: second question, there's no way I'm picking one of those. I don't care bout the consequences.
