We are still aiming for an October 26th premiere date

Currently, our plans for the channel are as follows: 

  • One major video a week on Sunday in a CrashCourse style format (if you haven’t watched CrashCourse on YouTube, please do, it’s amazing)
  • Vlogs whenever a member of our team wants to talk about something in a more informal format - for example, touring a museum, or talking to an expert in palaeontology 
  • Once a month Q & A videos and News from the World of News, where we answer YOUR questions and cover some of the major discoveries in paleontology from that month in a more formal format than just vlogs (we will probably talk about everything twice but you know Kulindadromeus deserves to be talked about an infinite number of times, for example) 

For now, we are working on scripts and art for the initial episodes. This blog is mainly so we can try to build an initial audience and keep you all updated on paleontology while we work! Please feel free to ask ANY of us questions and get to know us! We will answer literally EVERYTHING (mainly because, we don’t have enough of a following for that to be impossible at the moment.) 

Thanks,

The PalaeoVerse Team

Paper testing for the calendar.

I’m planning on going mixed media for the colored illustrations, with base color of watercolors/aquarells with colored pencils on top of them, so I need something that can take water, but is also smooth enough for the pencils. I have couple of different sorts of paper reserved for the project, and I’m finding out which one I like best. Not going to use this one, it’s thick, which is a plus, it is super smooth (I bet it’s great for inks and makers!) but it pretty much sucks for water colors (as in it doesn’t suck enough, the colors don’t get absorbed properly) and pencil only slides on it, making the sketch lines too light.

Too bad I don’t have the other paper with me right now, I’ll have to wait to try it (I have some of my default paper, but I know from before that it could never, ever handle watercolors. Or any wet media for that matter).

Anyway, it’s the heads of the clan. The chief troodon (name in progress) is getting his crest tasted by the herd’s matriarc (I love her tiny brow horns). She luves her fuzzy little daddy.

my budgie mango suddenly came down with some serious symptoms and i need to take him to the vet asap but i haven’t gotten my paycheque yet so i can’t afford this until i do but this can’t wait that long ):

it’s $155 just to bring him in, which i can handle, but of course it’s more for diagnostic tests and medication and i can’t cover all of it right now. 

i feel bad asking for more but mango is more important than anything to me right now and if anyone can spare anything at all i would be so extremely grateful.. my paypal is musica-smi.le@live.ca  . i can offer coloured sketches in return if you don’t mind that it will probably take a while to get to it .

thank you so much 

mango is looking a lot better! but he still needs a vet because birds are great at hiding illness until it’s dire and my job that is supposed to be full time is only giving me three shifts over the next two weeks… and then i need to pay rent… ):

we really appreciate the help so far and any further help sooooooooo much you all are a bunch of sweethearts

here is a cool pic of mango
