A fantastic new painting of a Diplodocus grazing by Phil Wilson – consider him for your next dinosaur project! Interesting that as I post this “Dippy” is being removed in London – much to the outrage of dinosaur lovers everywhere!
Phil Wilson just illustrated two new dinosaur paintings using a combination of acrylic and airbrush. The first painting – “Dimetrodon” – was a 12 foot long reptile that pre-dated the dinosaur age and was the first predator of its time. The second painting – “Liopleurodon attacking Mosasaurs” features Liopleurodon, which is nicknamed “T-rex of the ocean” or “Sea-rex” It was a top ocean predator of the late dinosaur age and is shown attacking Mosasaurs, which was a sea-going lizard related to the modern day Komodo dragons and reached a length of 30+ feet. As usual – like the majority of his dinosaur art being used for various publishing books – Phil uses a combination of scientific fact and super realism.
Two new dinosaur illustrations by Phil Wilson that depict recent discoveries from the last two years – Agustinia & Diabloceratops. Phil has currently illustrated dozens of dinosaur books in all markets and has worked with famed paleontologist – Jack Horner – on book projects and several years of Wild Outdoor Magazine. Check his portfolio for many great dino images!
