Making of: Paleoarte | Magazine article

General / 20 July 2023

After doing the Masterclass at Lightbox Academy, the magazine Renderout! reached out to me to talk about the process I follow when creating a prehistoric creature.

When I do palaeoart, the pre-production is the most important step. I talked about scientific research and anatomy but also about the software I use to bring them to life.

Renderout! is the main digital magazine for Spanish speakers and I was so glad to share my workflow with them. Thank you Marco Delgado for the opportunity!

You can download the latest magazine for free and read the article here (page #96).

Thank you Juan Nieto for the invitation and to everybody who followed the masterclass, we had so much fun!

Xenokeryx amidalae - The muscles

Work In Progress / 29 January 2021

Once we have the skeletal system of our creature, it's time to put the muscles. Just like the bones, I had other well-known ruminants as reference like horses and giraffes.

I did not draw all the muscles and many of them are in a wrong position, but this part is an useful draft for putting all together in ZBrush.

Xenokeryx amidalae - The skeleton

Work In Progress / 13 January 2021

All we know about xenokeryx amidalae is thanks to the fossil remains.

The skull is a well-known part but there are not many fragments of the post-cranial region. For this time, I decided to compare with more close relative creatures. The body structure of the ruminants doesn't change pretty much between species. 

However, I warn you that I did not found many information from this, I made a bit of speculation so is clearly possible that the real skeleton was different. Next episode: the muscles!
