Tomozaurus's Profile Picture
Tom Parker
Artist | Student | Varied
Known as Tomozaurus or Tomopteryx in online circles.

I am a biological science enthusiast with a particular interest in birds, crocodilians, evolution, phylogenetics and the reconstruction of extinct animals + ecosystems. I am currently studying Zoology and Animal Science aiming towards a future in animal research. On the side, I am a freelance scientific illustrator specializing in life reconstructions of stem-birds. I have a degree in Computer Science and have dabbled in game design in the past, focusing on level and environment design. I am a developer for the indie video game Saurian, reconstructing the ecosystem of Hell Creek and bringing it to life using Unity 3D. In my spare time I am also a devotee of Australian rules football and heavy metal music.

Ornitholestes is weird. Before any of you nerds boo-hoo about the scaly tail, Ornitholestes forms a clade with Juravenator in Cau's coelurosaur megamatrix.

I suggest full sized view. The badness is real on the compressed version.

Hi, i'm kinda confused. I saw the t-rex design from the stomping land (a game with the most inaccurate setting in the world, i know) wich i wasn't able to find any inaccuracies with. However, i saw that your drawings of the tyrannosaurus had obvious plumage, wich this one dosen't and instead has very small feathers that made me think it didn't have any when i first saw it. So i'm confused if it's accurate or not and if games can be excused for using this "hidden plumage" feature.

The reletive plumage length on my tyrannosauroids is based on the actual preserved impressions we have from multiple specimens.

Are the specimens complete? (is the plumage 100% accurate)

Just asking a bit randomly here, do you happen to know to what extent mosasaur scales would be visible? I've heard that they wouldn't be visible at all, but some things i found says they were visible.
Would it be possible that the scales looked like those of marine snakes?
