Sloths from the Ware Formation - Colored (2015). by jwmorenob
Sloths from the Ware Formation - Colored (2015).
This drawing is inspired in the work of Eli Amson and coworkers (2016), which describes the Miocene and Pliocene sloths from the La Guajira Peninsula of Colombia. The Pliocene Ware Formation has yielded a sloth assemblage that includes a nothrotheriine very similar to Nothrotherium (upper left), the megatherine sloth Pliomegatherium lelongi (ere represented by a couple of individuals in the upper right), and an scelidotherid taxon, very similar to Scelidotherium, here shown digging in the soil (lower left). Fossils of two other sloth families, the Megalonychids (lower right), and the Mylodontids (center) were also recovered from the same deposits. The sloth fossils of the Ware Formation represent four different sloth families, and indicate a diverse assemblage with varied ecologic niches and a wide range of body sizes.

Este dibujo está inspirado en el trabajo de Eli Amson y colaboradores (2016), que describe los perezosos del Mioceno y Plioceno de la Península de la Guajira en Colombia. La formación Ware del Plioceno ha producido una asociación de perezosos que incluye un notroterino muy similar a Nothrotherium (arriba, izquierda), el perezoso megaterino Pliomegatherium lelongi (aquí representado por una pareja de individuos arriba a la derecha), y un taxón de escelidoterido, muy similar a Scelidotherium, que se muestra aquí excavando en el suelo (abajo, izquierda). Fósiles de otras dos familias de perezosos, los Megaloníquidos (abajo, derecha) y los Mylodontidos (centro) también fueron encontrados en los mismos depósitos. Los fósiles de la Formación Ware representan cuatro familias de Perezosos, e indican una diversa asociación con nichos ecológicos variados y un rango amplio de tamaños corporales.

Marine Gavialoid (2016) by jwmorenob
Marine Gavialoid (2016)
This is an idea that was around for a while.

As most gavialoid species are known from fossils found in shallow marine and coastal deposits, in several continents, their geographic distribution through history should have implied several transoceanic dispersals. This sparked the idea of creating an image that would properly illustrate the concept. So I took an underwater sea photograph and superimposed a picture of a swimming indian gharial (Gavialis gangeticus), of course previously deformed to make it look more similar to some fossil gavialoids such as  Piscogavialis jugaliperforatus Ikanogavialis gameroi Siquisiquesuchus venezuelensis and  Argochampsa krebsi.

Esta es una idea que estaba en el aire por un tiempo.

Ya que la mayoría de especies de gavialoideos se conocen a partir de fósiles hallados en depósitos marinos someros y costeros, en varios continentes, su distribución geográfica a través de la historia debe haver involucrado varias dispersiones transoceánicas. Esto encendió la idea de crear una imagen que ilustrara apropiadamente el concepto. Así pues, tomé una fotografía subacuática marina y le sobreimpuse una fotografía de un gavial de la India (Gavialis gangeticus), previamente deformado, por supuesto, para hacerlo mas similar a algunos gavialoideos fósiles tales como Piscogavialis jugaliperforatus ,  Ikanogavialis gameroi,  Siquisiquesuchus venezuelensisArgochampsa krebsi.

I have recently posted many drawings I made between 1998 and 2011, including most of my old charcoal drawings. I hope you like them.

I have arranged my post chronologically, so that viewers can see them in order by clicking the "browse gallery" option. According to that, I have organized my posted works in three folders, one for the early works between 1995 and 1999, another for the period between 2000 and 2010, and a third one covering everithing from 2011.

My charcoal drawings were always drawn in a format bigger than the scanner, this is why they have some additional imperfections. I´ll try to create new versions that will replace the old files.

Thank you very much for your comments!
