Cetiosaurus oxoniensis

Working preliminary drawing for the next Art Evolved gallery- Sauropods- This large beast roamed the mudflats of Oxfordshire, England at the end of the Jurassic.

Hurdia & Aysheaia

Not my best piece of work but the cause of the most interesting research I've undertaken in a long time. Instigated by the Art Evolved Anomalocaridid gallery, I've been sucked in by these Cambrian creatures. Fascinatingly diverse and more complex than I ever imagined.
I've tried to mix arty background techniques with scientific accuracy in the creatures and it hasn't really worked. Too fussy and the compostion doesnt work at all. Hay ho- the first a many Cambrian- Burgess Shale works though. .never give in....
