Art Monday: Eremotherium & Glyptodon

Burning the candle at both ends. Happy and artistically busy. Please enjoy precious fossil eremotherium skull and fossil glyptodon skull while I scamper back into my cave-studio and continue cackling gleefully while I toil. These skulls are...precious...to me.

so long as there is no riddle for me to solve when i accidentally find one of your skulls in said cave!

they look good. going for a background, of just letting them float together in free space?

Nice skulls. Though I'm afraid of sounding a little necrophilic, I do know that's not the case. (sorry thinking aloud.)

I don't know what runs through that head of yours, but I'm sure "it's all good" in there.

Traumador- You never cease to amaze me. (I mean that in a good way.)

Glendon Mellow said...

Traumador - a real fossil skull? Sadly, no.

Probably no background, but I wanted to record them for posterity before I add another element to the piece that overlaps them both.

Raptor - Ha! That's not necrophilic. You are a paleo fan after all. I know what runs through this head of mine, and its first name is "Co" and last name is "Ffee".

Is there one skull to rule them all?

These are looking good...almost alien-esque. I love the details in skulls, all the ridges and crevices and knobs... Beautiful!

Glendon Mellow said...

Thanks Peter! The knobs and ridges make them fascinating to draw.

Raptor Lewis said...

Yep! I am a paleo-fan true enough. The skulls really lok good though. Nice to capture some life from the lesser known Cenozoic era. Sometimes dinosaurs need to step aside and allow their successors (us, mammals and birds) to take the "spotlight", if you will. (No offense to Traum. :P)

Anywho, great work!

Awesome skulls. Xenarthans are cool!

Glendon Mellow said...

Thanks Zach!

Mona Albano said...

Those are beautiful!

Glendon Mellow said...

Why, thank you Mona!
