Favorite Animals in Art - A Walk Among Dinosaurs
This may actually prove to be educational for some of you. I've taken some of the more popular prehistoric creatures and grouped them by size and classification, and tried to put at least six or seven artist views in each group so you can get an idea what a particular dinosaur looks like and how it lives. You'll see how artists vary in their renditions (after all, none of us have actually seen these fellows when it comes to color or actual skin). Also, with the new decisions about dinosaurs possibly being more closely related to birds than anyone previously thought, you'll see a lot of feathers here and there among our big buddies. Those of you who aren't obsessed with our prehistoric "terrible lizards" will probably know more about them when you finish than you do now, For those of you who are already fans and experts, let me say that I worked hard on this and tried not to make any mistakes in classifications, but even so, one or two may have slipped through. If you spot a mistake, please correct it in the comments? Music is Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring."
