This book is a collection of dinosaur illustrations by the most technically and aesthetically accomplished paleoartists working today. Paleoart is any original artistic manifestation that attempts to reconstruct or depict prehistoric life according to the latest knowledge and scientific evidence in paleontology today. Paleoart first became extremely popular during the 1990s following the megahit film Jurassic Park (1993) and has since been enhanced by advances in computer graphics technology. Since 2000, the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology has awarded the Lanzendorf PaleoArt Prize for achievement in the field. The artists in this collection present an outstanding selection of their works (many are award-winning) that show not only the dynamism of this artistic genre, but also the great detail and individual technique of each art work itself. Informative captions include the name and time period of each dinosaur, along wih the media and software used in each art work. Dinosaur lovers, fantasy art fans as well as 3D art professionals and students will enjoy exploring the world of dinosaur art today with this beautiful full-color book.
