Paleoartists Show Realistic View of Dinosaur Predation
Few people make their way through childhood without being a little dinosaur obsessed at one time or another and some grow up to continue that obsession. If you’re one of those people, you’ve probably wondered at one time or another what it would have looked like to see a Tyrannosaurus Rex or a Velociraptor hunt and eat its prey.
In a book titled Dinosaur Art: The World’s Greatest Paleoart, paleoartists have now taken a look at dinosaur predation and composed illustrations of the events and what they may look like, basing their work on fossils. The book is packed full of magnificent artwork on what dinosaurs might’ve looked like and how their hunting systems worked.
Editor Steve White said that he wanted to put this book together to highlight paleoart and paleoartists, mostly because such artists rarely have their work seen outside of academic tomes or popular dinosaur books – the focus is never on their work alone. White said he wanted to do something that highlighted them as artists while drawing in those who simply love good art.
