Hello, my name is Thije Jim Zuidewind

I'm a Biology student in the Netherlands. I love to draw it's one of my favorite ways to spend my free time. Another thing that I really love to do is diving, being with the fish and just let all the beauty sink in (you get it sink ;P)

My favorite dinosaurus are:
Therizinosaurus, velociraptor, tyrannosaurus, spinosaurus and titannosaurus

Lost Shore, Permian Patch(Herbivores)
Happy Kingsday everyone.
While most of the Netherlands is partying in the city I finally finished the second piece of the Permian Patch. I'm very exited to tell you more about this so lets dive into this.
First of we've got a Permian swamp. This swamp is home to one of the most colorful creatures in the Permian Patch the Edaphosaurus. These animals enjoy eating the many horsetails growing on the shores. The most distinct feature on this animal has to be their elaborate back sail. This sail is surprisingly the same color between males and females. Young individuals do not have these colors though so we expect it's an indication that the animal has reached sexual maturity. Diadectes is mostly seen wading in the shallow waters. Here they eat the watering plants. They can be seen in small family groups of up to ten individuals, these are mostly animals that came from the same nest. Angelosaurus on the other hand are solitary creatures. They only come together to mate and then go there separate ways. They can sometimes be found hanging out in herds of Edaphosaurus or Didectes, probably for protection in numbers. Also I decided that since the island is located in a tropical climate it would be logical to have a storm front now and then. 
Next up we've got the Scutosaurus prairie. Yes indeed after your comments on the Inostrancevia exhibit I realized that the dessert habitat was only accurate at the very end of the Permian. So in order to make this up I spent a lot of time in making this exhibit an environment sutable for these awesome creatures. So I designed a lush forest area bordering a river with a bit of grasland and a piece of dried up riverbed. The Scutosaurus has a similar niche to sauropods later on. Of course they are not big enough to topple full grown trees but they do keep the grasland clean of young trees for they love to eat them. The adult animals are completely terrestrial and have a brown color while the young have a more amphibian lifestyle and are a brownish green. The young mostly eat water plants and use the water to get away from big predators. There is a second Pareiasaur species called Proelginia. They look and act a lot like adolescent Scutosaurus. They live in small groups but do occasionally form large groups, it's likely they do this in order to mix the groups to prevent inbreeding. A more elusive creature is the Proburnetia. They are mostly nocturnal and mostly carnivorous. We found that they actually enjoy berries and other kinds of fruit. Despite this they mostly feed on small mammals that inhabit the island like mice and rats and on rare occasions a baby Paeiasaur. The final creature in this paddock is the tree roaming Suminia. They act a lot like monkeys just less intelligent. They spent all their time in the tree tops except for when they need to lay eggs. Here they eat the leaves, nuts and fruits that the trees produce. 
The last paddock contains some late Permian animals. (in first instance I wanted to make it a Lystrosaurus paddock but then I realized it was to far into the Triassic for a Permian theme). The most abundant species in here is the Delectosaurus. They look a lot like Lystrosaurus only these did live in the Permian. They live in big groups and feast on the low growing plants. Then there is the slightly bigger Vivaxosaurus. These live in much smaller groups and also enjoy eating the low growing plants, mostly the horsetails. And jet again we've got the awesome Rautiania. My friend awesomeelephant suggested I added the Coleurosauravis but this one lived with the Scutosaurus and I had already filled that enclosure so I decided to use the Rautiania again. They can be seen between the trees gliding back and forth to catch a swarm of flies. Finally there is a Euparkeria trying to catch a fly between the palms. I know these are actually Triassic but I felt it fitted perfectly in that corner.

So that's it for this one, lots of words. I'm kind of dubbing for what I want my next piece to be. I've already got the concepts done for the aquarium and the amphibians so I'm not sure which of those I should start with. I was also thinking about adding a Carboniferous bug house, because I'd love to do something I've never done before. Please tell me your thoughts in the comments below.

Lost Shores, Permian Patch (Carnivores)
Well it's been half a year but I'm back, and stronger than ever before if you ask me.
Some might've already noticed that there are some differences from my previous piece that was in progress. This is because I finally found the right paper and the right fine liners so I decided to do it all over, and I'm really happy I did.

So first off the Dimetrodon swamp. You see four Dimetrodon of which two male and two female. The females can be recognized outside of mating season by the green colour, they have this in order to blend into the shrubs when protecting the nest. The males are usually more green but during the mating season they get the most beautiful colouring to attract mates. You can see two males going at each other to impress the females. The second synapsid species here is the Secodontosaurus. They are smaller than Dimetrodon but they are still very capable hunters. They mostly feed on smaller creatures near the waterfront and sometimes they can be seen hunting fish in the water. Their diet consists of frogs, turtles, fish and rarely unsuspecting birds. There is also a small amphibian called Pantylus, there isn't much to say about this guy.

Second we've got the Inostrancevia dessert. Here we've got two more synapsid species, namely the Inostrancevia and the procynosuchus. Inostrancevia acts a lot like dogs, we imagined that these large predators would be solitary but instead they hang around rather often. This might be because we feed them so there is no competition for food which lets them be more relaxed. The procynosuchus usually live in pairs. They are almost completely monogamous and do not tolerate any other in their territory.

Last but not least, the arachosaurs. These primitive crocodillians are what you'd expect. They hang around at the water side and bask in the sun most off the day. They share their river delta with shy obirkovia. This animal is rarely seen, though this is mostly because of it's size and their ability to blend into the rocks. The last species on the list is the rautiania. This flying reptile is frequently seen gliding between the trees to catch flies. They also like hanging out on the water side because of the open spaces and the high density of insects.

Hope you guys enjoy it, have a good one

Dimetrodon exhibit in progress
So since it has been quite a while since my last update I decided to give a small sneak peak of what I'm working on.
Here you see one of the three exhibits that I'll feature in this piece. I'm thinking about buying a fineliner to trace my work just because of the shear amount of detail that I want to put in it. Let me know if you think I should do it or if I should keep using pencil lines.

Heey guys I would just like to let you all know that I'm currently working on my next piece. It might still take a while though because of the shear size and the fact that I'm working a full time job now.
Any way lately I've made some videos from my vacation in the Azores last summer so I've still got something to post here.

So I hope to make some real progress on the drawing this week in the mean while please enjoy the sharks. ;)

Lost Shores, Chinese Aviary
So after months I finally completed the piece requested by Dontknowwhattodraw94.
I present you the Chinese Aviary. This aviary contains various early birds and avian dinosaurs. The most notable dinosaurus are the Microraptors that call this exhibit home. Other "birds" are the Jeholornis, Apsaravis and Confuciusornis(Thank you ethantulloch24 ;))
Since the exhibit is quite massive it had some spare room for some bigger creatures. One of these creatures is the Wuerhosaurus which was also featured in my last piece. This subspecies is green instead of yellow to blend in better with the foliage. There are also a few Beipiaosaurs walking around the exhibit. These are the first Therizinosaur species in the park. The Beipiaosaurus uses its brown feather coat to blend in with the brown forest floor to evade predators. It's quite the lazy dinosaur, since they eat very tough vegetation they spend a lot of time eating and digesting their food. They are seen playing on rare occasions though these are mostly the younger individuals.
The Microraptors are usually quite shy creatures. They spent a lot of time in the tree tops where they are barely visible. Only when they are fed you have a solid chance of seeing one up close. They live in family groups that vary in size. The Jeholornis on the other hand is a lot more relaxed around humans. They like to "investigate" the visitors and are often seen watching the visitors as they walk through the exhibit. During feeding time they like to climb onto the zookeeper and grad the food right from it's hand. For the more adventurous of visitors this is a great moment to pet an actual dinosaur!

I would just like to say that I appreciate your understanding and patience. Keep in mind this is the first time I've done a forest background and I hope to do more to improve my forest skills ;)
