Her eight segmented arms move in perfect coreography, pushing the body forward with each wave of movement. Several eyes scan her surroundings while she journeys trough the tree and trough the foggy morning, as milky as her web. Gravity is almost irrelevant as she walks all around the branches in a 3D world where up and down barely matter.
The humming and chirping incessantly fills the air in a loud cacophony of songs and sounds backed up by the rustling of leaves and fluttering of wings. The wind is unforgiving, upsetting the vegetation which emphaticaly complains at every gust.
The many eyes focus on her six-legged prey that sits blissfully ignorant upon the green surface of the plant, cleaning itself with hairy feet in rapidly calculated motions.
And so the dance begins.
She rotates in her own axis, never letting the soon-to-be meal leave her kaleidoscopic field of vision, until she is perfectly positioned to strike. It’s certainly big game, but nothing out of the deadly reach

Hello guys!

Some of you may be wondering why I am not making art anymore. The fact is, I am! Plenty, actually, including a much more variant content like cenozoic mammals and pre-mesozoic fauna!
But, for several reasons, I am not being very active here on DeviantArt lately, and have instead moved to other social media platforms, mainly Facebook and Tumblr. So, if you want to keep yourself up-to-date with all the new artwork that I'm making almost weekly, take a look at the following links:

My paleoart page on Facebook

My Tumblr

I also suggest you to have a look at the Earth Archives webmagazine and the brand new Pteros, an online encyclopedia for pterosaur species, where my works are often being featured.

For those of you interested, I am open to commissions, although my availability at any given moment depends on how much stuff I have on my hands simultaneously. But if you want me to make a piece specially for you, contact me at so we can discuss it! :)

Happy April , RH

Will you ever continue you're aquarium series? I really like it, and am always intrigued by the astounding displays of depth and light produced in you're amazing paintings.
Julio-Lacerda Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you! I don't have plans for it in the near future, but I do like the series very much and there's some animals that I would like to do eventually, so who knows.

So when will you add your newer artwork like the Austroposeidon, Chalicotheres, Dakotaraptor, Gualicho, and others? I've been waiting for you to add them, but you never did... Big fan of your paleoart by the way, you're one of my favorite paleoartists. :)
Julio-Lacerda Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you! I don't plan on adding those here on Deviantart because I don't feel like using this platform anymore, specially after having so many others (Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram) to manage. I only stop by occasionally to interact with people who may not follow me elsewhere.
AcroSauroTaurus Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2016
Ah, thats understandable. So does that mean the Aquarium series is over? Also, I wouldn't mind if every once in a while you added one of the new ones to your gallery, that would be fine. Your work is really good, have you thought about having a professional looking site to put your artwork on?
