  • Palaeotherium magnum by Roman Yevseyev, magnific realistic recreation of this ancient ungulate.
  • Cervus elaphus cherskii by Margarita Panova, her gallery in deviantArt is full of marvelous depictions of extinct cervids. Really worth take a look.

  • Ornithomimus by Paul Heaston, following the latest researchs on ostrich-like dinosaurs.
