Re: Dino Art

> Best Dino Artist: Greg Paul/ Doug Henderson/ Brian Franczak

Is this restricted to extant artists only? If not I'll have to send the
attack-theropods over for not mentioning Knight...

Hmm...my favorite 3 modern artists would be Greg Paul, John Sibbick and
Wayne Douglas Barlowe.

Greg Paul: the first person who made insulated dinosaurs look
CONVINCING.His dinosaurs are brilliant and original though some of his
colour pics look a bit 2-dimensional.
Sibbick: beautiful, super-detailed but not "too real" as in Gurche.
Barlowe: while he hasn't done as much dinosaur illustrating as the others,
his          pictures capture the "other worldly' aspect of the distant
past. (e.g. his squatting oviraptor with the little crabs scuttling around)
