If like me, you went through a dinosaur phase during your childhood, one of the first genres of art you probably developed an appreciation for is Paleoart—the depiction prehistoric life. I loved browsing though my collection of Dinosaurs! magazine, admiring the pages of colourful hand-illustrated artist’s impressions of oversized lizards. The tools available to paleo-artists have since evolved to include digital illustration and 3D modeling, which now allow both hobbyists and professionals to produce intense dinosaur themed art. Today’s inspiration showcase features 60 fearsome examples of modern Paleoart, including ultra-realistic 3D renders and digitally painted concept art. It’s interesting to compare the difference in art style pre-and-post Jurassic Park (1993), which is now being built upon with a new wave of artwork that depict dinosaurs with the more recent discoveries of feathers and bright markings.

  1. WOW – you have put alot of effort in these. But don’t you think you have added a little too many? I would love to go through every single one but the time is not on my side. :( – Maybe it would be better to just add few of the best ones? I personally think articles are getting way too long for anyone to have time to go through them. Sorry, it’s a little negative but honesty is my best policy.

  2. HERSCHEL-HOFFMEYER made the best looking ones in my opinion. So few feathered dinos, but it is nice to see them few presented here. These lizardy raptors are a no-no.
