1. How to make a dinosaur head. 

    We’ve been following Tyler Keillor, a sculptor who specializes in skull and flesh reconstructions, since he launched his project to create an authoritative full-body reconstruction of Dryptosaurus.

    Seeing as we never thought about the men and women who tirelessly work to accurately reproduce an extinct species, it’s been fascinating to watch Tyler prepare for such a massive undertaking. It’s been even more wonderful seeing his work as it comes together, as you can see above.

  2. Tyler Keillor is a paleoartist who wants to build the most realistic, accurate  full-body reconstruction ever of a predatory dinosaur called the Dryptosaurus. Working with digital technology instead of the more traditional clay and rubber, this version of the Dryptosaurus will be infinitely scalable and editable — meaning that it can be easily updated according to new discoveries and evolving knowledge about the appearance and life of the ancient dino. Clever! Also, our Project of the Day.
