Paleo & Animal References From The Natural History Musem London
04-28-2011, 02:09 PM
Hi all me again.
I recently paid a visit to the Natural History Musem London and took aload of reference photos of all sorts.
Its a brilliant place to gain knowlage and inspiration on all things beasty and dino.
im currently editing and cleaning up the photos and will place them on here and on my DeviantArt page for download, a link will be provided.
You are free to use thease as you like but it would be nice to mention who you got them from or give alink to my page here or my DeviantArt page.
First up is the Ground Sloth..
Paramylodon is an extinct genus of ground sloth of the family Mylodontidae endemic to North America during the Pliocene through Pleistocene epochs, living from around ~4.9 Mya—11,000 years ago (approximately 4.889 million years).
Paramylodon is known from North America deposits as far south as Guatemala as well as Mexico and the United States and often mistaken as Glossotherium. Currently there is just one recognized species, P. harlani, that is commonly
referred to as Harlan's ground sloth in honor of American paleontologist Dr.Richard Harlan who first discovered and described a lower jaw in 1835. Paramylodon exhibits the interesting characteristic of having had dermal ossicles, small bones embedded in the skin, presumably adding a degree of protection to the animal. This characteristic is also shared by the South American Mylodon.

Lots of great links in this thread. I hope you find some use out of these.
Animal Shots by Habitat. Nice shots but a bit small.
Another animal set:
Invertebrate Sea Creatures
This site is kind of ridiculous, but great for when you need to put a snarl on an animal.
Enjoy. I have some figure drawing and costume stuff as well, but seeing as this is a creature forum, I'll try and post it in the character area.

Already posted this on CA, thought I might as well post it here, too.
Creature Design Tutorial, this is probably be better for a beginner in creature design, but it might be useful to others as well.
In terms of inspiration I'd recommend looking through the artist's gallery as well, as he is quite the monster maker!
