I was so happy that :icontraheripteryx: didn't tagged me, but just a day later I was tagged two times by :iconmunkas02: and :iconyutyrannus:.

So I feel a little forced... and because I'm in an rebellious mood I will:

-Not post the rules here

-Answer only 13 questions and tell 13 facts

-And will not tag any other Deviant

Some fun-facts to have fun or not.

1. Most of the time I'm totally lazy, but when I move my ass I produce a lot of stuff in short time
2. I love walking around in my red snuggie which I wear different around to be like a robe
3. I'm the barbecue chef in our family
4. I have daydreams of spaceship fleets under my command on a regular basis... just the daily madness. I don't know how many stardestroyers already exploded under the fire of my Marco Polo class battleships.
6. Going on Facebook was maybe one of my best and at the same time worst ideas ever.
7. I'm a Fantasia-kid, my first experience with dinosaurs on TV was accompanied with the soundtrack of Stravinsky.
8. I was always the one in school which made facepalms when other, mostly male, classmates interrupted the lessons.
9. I actually try to delete 'never' from my vocabulary, I fail too often with doing something never.
10. Having a own museum is one of my biggest dreams.
11. I order my sketchbooks in stratigraphic periods (we are currently in the Mesoadumbratium)
12. I'm one of these horrible persons who rarely say really yes or no about a topic... sometimes just to annoy someone.
13. It's not that I'm not interested in the possible answers of those I should tag, but I don't like to be tagged so I always 
think about the poor guys which don't like it either but would feel forced because of this.

Ok, now some questions I pick from the two sets I got.

1: what are your favourite species of trilobite?

Difficult to say, I'm not so into trilobites, but I like all species which can roll up 

2: What is your favorite extinct animal(s)?

I don't choose a favorite to be open for everything.

3: if you could have two dinosaurs, one as a steed, and one as a companion, what would they be?

Utahraptor and Utahraptor.

4. What is your favorite prehistory documentary?

There are a lot small productions from Germany I really like, nearly without CGI, just plain science plus scientist
at work. Beside that WWD is still the best CGI based dinodoc for me!

5: do think Pluto should be a planet?

I actually never understood why everyone was complaining about that. Pluto doesen't changed because of the class we put him in.

6. What is your least favorite aspect of The Hobbit films?

Least favorite... well, I don't understand why the last battle against Saurons army was so completely without strategy, as someone who studied the work of Hannibal and so one I would never just stand there all together and wait to be circled by an far bigger mob of orcs.

7: any movies you just can't wait to watch?

Star Wars VI!!!!! (Also a bit JW, but only to go on nitpicking rage)

8. What is your favorite TV series?

Probably "The Mentalist", but again, I don't like to pick favorites.

9:what programs do you use to draw/paint?

It's called Brain 2.0 with some tools like "hands" and "pencils" =) 

(I use GIMP for a bit aftereffects)

10.What is your favorite novel?

Again, I have no favorite (that's a problem of tagging, half of the questions begin with: "what's your favorite")

11. What is the best thing about legends about dragons?

Well, I think it's the fact that we can still find so many truth in there about real Draconiformes.

12: do you have a cat?

We have three cats

13: Question to myself: will you do this again?

Probably not, next time I just send a link to this journal.



Sooooooo... anything else? 
Hmm, I don't think so, maybe I should go to bed, I did a bigger drawing/painting today which went very well
and was at the same time the start for a new project. So be aware! We will leave Earth again!

All the best,

Mother's day greeting by Hyrotrioskjan
Mother's day greeting
A picture I had in mind for a long time but hell you know that I have problems with drawing humans. But today I thought: try it again!
You see here a female Neoraptor with it's offspring... and the birdy instincts just grow a bit too strong ;)

So here my small tribute to all mothers of the world, feathered or not =)

Happy Mother's day!

A family portait by Hyrotrioskjan
A family portait
Oh look, what a surprise! Another Yi! And this times with some close friends, Epidendrosaurus/Scansoriopteryx (left) and Edidexipteryx (middle).

Ok, I must addmit that I noticed on my last picture that the wrist of the animal is maybe to much folded, Jaime Headden :iconqilong: noticed it too and I had the feeling I can't leave the bandwagon with an wrong folded Yi (has someone maybe done a origami Yi yet?)
So here all three known species together sitting on a dripped Ginkgo branch. Note that I made the tail feathers of Epidendrosaurus similar in shape to some extinct Ginkgos, a idea I had back during the All Yesterdays contest but never went over the sketch level. 

This picture is also available as a print. 

P.s. if you want to know what I did 5 years ago have a look at this video where I went through some old stuff: www.facebook.com/7324269534815…

The Dark Yi by Hyrotrioskjan
The Dark Yi
Oh Palea* what have you done to me! Yi qi don't let me go and when I look daily on DA and Google I see how the pages get filled with more and more interpretations of this extraordinary fossil so the whole community seems to be in a rush. 

The story of this drawing/painting is quickly told. Two days ago :iconalexandernevsky: credited me as the inventor of the "camera trap plaeo-meme", while I'm not sure if this is true it was the spark for an idea which already had some shape in my sketchbook but now got a darker setting.
I tried not to show this animal in flight or in a way which show how the Patagium is attached to the trunk or legs because flight abilities and correct posture of these soft structures are still unknown. It was also important to me to lead the eye of the viewer not directly at Yi but turn the animal into a secondary spot so that, when everything works, the eyes first find the Ginkgo leaf (Ginkgoites to be correct) and then follow the tail feathers toward the head with the glowing eye.
So here it is, Yi at night, produced with colored pencils, white ink and gouache paint on dark blue paper (DinA3), one day worktime.

Some other Yi art recently produced most of it can be found here on DA:

Yi qi by Hyrotrioskjan
Yi qi
Before everyone ask me if I will do a drawing of this new feathered bat... yes I sat down in the middle of the night and produced this quick 20 minute 
picture. This new wing structure is certainly a new challenge and I'm not 100% satisfied with the result but it's enough for the moment.

Hi, my name is Joschua Knüppe

In the moment I study free art at the Academy of fine arts Münster and I hope to work and teach one day as a independent artist and illustrator.
My work can be split into three big parts:
1. Paleoart and Paleontography
2. fictional ecosystems, some of them on other planets
3. mythical creatures, especially dragons, depicted in a realistic way

All my work is connected together and form large four-dimensional networks which become more and more dense with the time.
In terms of an classic modernist I'm a concept artist, which means that the idea is for me always more important or interesting than the form of it, I still try to improve myself, and I see that it work, but the construct, the concept behind my artwork is the real art.

I love comments, positive and negative, try to reply each of them and 'm always open for questions.

Projects which are belong together and form large four-dimensional networks:
-Part time humans
-Dragons of the world
-Silvanus
-Wegener 2
-Serentopia
-Atzlan
-Future birds and their world
-Organic technology
-Paleoart (with Jurassic Germany and many more)

Out of this I have two other projects:
-Pyrungata
-GDM (Global Dinosaur Monument)

This ID cards have a place for interests and hobbys but I'm interested in too much things so I count them here:
dinosaurs, pterosaurs, mosasaurs, birds, dragons, art, art history, paleontology, walking, annoy creationist, writing, reading, drawing, painting, working with clay wood and metal, ants, biology especially behavior, bio technology, bio informatics, fantasy, SiFi, being at DA, doing exhibtions, holding lectures, arguing and many more.

Well, take a look at my Gallery maybe you find something, beautiful, strange, interesting or more positive adjectives ;)

Copyright:
If you want to use my work ask first, I normally don't mind but I want still the controll over my work. Also I don't like to see my work out of it's original context, how I said: the story behind the pictures is important!

Commissions: I normally don't do commissions, exeptions are for scientists who want a reconstructions. In addition I do sometimes sketches for friends and people who ask friendly =)

Contact:
If you have questions or other reasons to contact me can send me a Note here on DA or mail me under: utahraptor.jo@web.de

I'm now also on Facebook! www.facebook.com/pages/Art-by-…

Hello!

I am creating a YouTube/research report on feathered dinosaurs. You seem like a person who knows their paleontology. Could you give me your thoughts on which dinosaurs had feathers and which ones did not?
(Examples: allosaurus, sauropods, tyrannosaurs, cerotsaurus)

I will give you credit for your information and feature a link to your page
