Classical vs Modern Dinosaur Art1,452 Views10 RepliesAdd A Reply
I’ve recently remembered a book I had when I was younger. I tried finding with no luck. When reflecting on my memories of it I’ve discovered I have a soft spot for Classical Dinosaur Art. The style and portrayal just is something special.
What do you prefer, Classical or Modern?
By modern, do you mean Jurassic World style? And by classical do you mean Jurassic Park style? If that is the case then it goes to classical.
What I mean is the classical art from 1900s-1970s to and Modern which is 2000s - current.
I enjoy modern work, but those old ones are very fond to me
1990's and up, I always dislike the dragging tail dinosaurs
But it reminds me of the “Golden Age” where dinosaurs were more like monsters and you’d...
Im being nostalgic for times I never experienced... that’s a bit weird.
I've also felt that, nostalgia for a time I never lived in.
I like..hmmm...honestly, i can't decide. Old, dragging-tailed dinos show the effort of reconstructing something but not quite getting it right, but still trying
New, bird-like dinosaurs by people who pour their hearts into researching these animals.
i'm going to go with a tie for me.
I've watched from an old dinosaur documentary on how some of those old reconstructions actually damaged the fossils to make their tails drag, I never forgave those old dinosaur reconstructionists for doing that to those millions of year old fossils. Thankfully modern museums use replicas instead of the actual fossils
How dare they do that.
People learn, and people have made mistakes in movies such as inaccurate portrayals. I don’t think this means we have to get rid of these movies or replace them, but to apprise what they teach us about the past and how we can be better.
So I think the same applies to dinosaurs.
