I often have to sit on top of new skeletal reconstructions for a long time before I can show them (Utahraptor
would be the most infamous example to my DA followers), but this one has been hard to clam up about since I did it more than a year ago: Dimetrodon grandis
The skeletal was done during the design process for the excellent Permian line of clothes and merchandise
and they understandably wanted to wait on showing it off until their product line launched.
But now it has! So here is my overhaul of D. grandis
, based as much as possible on the Smithsonian specimen, with the tail taken from other specimens. The high-walk-in-a-hurry pose is something I created specifically for Permia; I will be creating a more sedate high-walk pose for the version that eventually ends up in my galleries, but I didn't want to wait any longer to share it.
If you want to read more about how the skeletal was made (and the data used) you can read about it on my website here.
