Pterosaur Artwork by Burian

John Lavas continues his detailed examination of the artwork of the influential  Zdeněk Burian.  This edition features pterosaurs and there are some excellent examples of the famous Czech illustrator’s work including depictions of Rhamphorhynchus and Pterodactylus.  Phil Hore provides two prehistoric animal articles, the first on Allosaurus resulted in editor Mike Fredericks being inundated with images of this Late Jurassic predator.  Look out for fantastic illustrations by Luis Rey, Jorge Blanco, Mark Hallett and John Sibbick.  The second Phil Hore article discusses the enigmatic Elasmotherium, which ties in nicely to Mike Frederick’s “What’s New” review as it features the Elasmotherium illustration that we commissioned, when discussing the release of the CollectA Deluxe Elasmotherium figure.

Eagle-eyed readers may also spot the image showing five of the new for 2019 Schleich prehistoric animal figures which is displayed on page 35.  This image was created by us and used to announce the first batch of new for 2019 Schleich figures back in December 2018.  The vast majority of the figures discussed in this article are already available from Everything Dinosaur, an exception being the limited edition Papo Spinosaurus which has now been delayed until the autumn.

Prehistoric Animal and Fossil News

Recent news stories featuring fossil discoveries are succinctly covered in the “Paleonews” section, look out for a story about a small T. rex relative from New Mexico and a stark illustration of the power of Sabre-toothed cats, which could puncture the skulls of rivals.  Issue 130 also includes a fascinating look at the creation of a four-foot-long Bronze Allosaurus sculpture by Mark Hallett.  Tracy Lee Ford continues the Late Jurassic theme focusing on how to draw the body of Stegosaurus, with a particularly helpful review of Stegosaur plate shapes.
