Ixalerpeton
I was really thrilled when this critter was published, as it wasn't really possible to nail down the proportions of any lagerpetid before this. Obviously I wish there was more information about the hands and the snout, but seriously, this was an amazing addition to our knowledge of what Triassic near-dinosaurs looked like.

Also, this truly looks like an animal that could have bounded around on all fours just about as easily as it could move bipedally (remember that when moving quadrupedally it probably would have lowered the ankle and moved with the hindlimb in a for plantigrade posture). From critters pretty much like this we get both the bipedal marasuchus-like dinosauromorphs, and apparently more quadrupedal silesaurids.

Dawn 'bird'
Aurornis, the "dawn bird" is another taxa from the basal avialan/basal troodontid bush, and again I have no formal opinion on its phylogeny that I'm willing to make public right now. The skull and proportions feel less elegant to me than say Jinfengopteryx, but I suppose once you cover it in a proper coat of feathers it'd look just fine.

Jinfengopteryx elegans - the golden phoenix
Completely overhauled version of a much older skeletal. Basal troodontid/avialan thing, more details when Lori is published.

Dimetrodon skeletal 4 web by ScottHartman
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.

Enjoy!
Chinese Hunter
Years ago I did a Sinovenator skeletal drawing based off of the initial Nature paper. A lot more data has come out since then (though some of it is still waiting on publication), so here is the fully revised version.

Tarbosaurus bataar. I've only seen one paleo-artist ever tackle making a skeletal profile for Tarbosaurus, and I am unsure as to how correct it was. Is the "alarming lizard" anywhere on your to-do list?

Hello, I hope you don't mind me coming to you with questions, it's just you must know much about dinosaurs and google is failing to give me the answer's I seek. 
I've been trying to figure out which Raptors coexisted. For most raptors google will tell me that such and such raptor lived in the Early Cretaceous only that's a big time frame, so I can't tell if they all existed at the same time. On another side the locations is quite vague with some of them. I just really want to know which raptors were able to interact with each other. Is there someplace I can find the info I want?

hi Scott, a few years ago you made a few predictions about how Tyrannosaurus would compare to Giganotosaurus in length and mass.

on point number 5 you mention some fragments of even larger T. rex specimens. what individual specimens did you have in mind when you mentioned this?

Hello Scott, it's been a long time since I've had a question. Anyway I'm doing an illustration for my portfolio and it's a life reconstruction of Big Al playing with a metal barrel. I used this mount as reference. Any articulation problems I should watch out for?

Hello Scott, firstly I want to tell that your work is fantastic. :) (Smile)

I also want to ask you, are Paralititan and Argentinosaurus on your list of dinosaurs to reconstruct?

I know it's probably tricky to reconstruct them but it would be really, really great to see their reconstructions from you.

Is it possible that Oviraptor and Citipati is the same animal?

For a long time Citipati was referred to Oviraptor, but it appears that they are different critters.

Please might I have permission to use skeletons as a template for some of my dinosaur reconstructions
(Do I have to put a credit of you? Or this not nessercary....Just asking)
