Best of all, I will be adding an entire section devoted to the miraculous mammals of this site to the book. I will be going into a LOT more detail about each genus and family on this site in the book. A lot more than just names and pictures. Although I do intend to use the pictures I use on this site in the book. It's just that there will be more detail about each genus in this book I am working on. I'm separating each page to discuss each genus of animal. That's how I've decided the layout of this book will be. I've been doing good so far, and it is looking nice! I will offer this book on this site, on the UMG Productions site, as they are the publishers, as well as Amazon. I will post all the links on this site when the book is finished. It may take a while to finish, as I am still currently also working on the pictures for the Meet the Mammals section, that will also be used in this book. Watch for it!
Don't expect this book to be cheap! It's going to be in full color, and that it's self is expensive. I really have no idea right now what it's going to cost, but it may be quite a bit. I'm going to cut costs as much as I can, by only offering this book in paperback. But I've also got other full-color books on UMG Productions, and they are pretty expensive. I may offer a generous discount to those who would want to collaborate on this project, but only to those people, and only through this site. Not through like Amazon. If you would like to donate your time to collaborate with this project, please use the Contact Us form and submit samples of your work. I am not that great at drawing cats or panthers, so I can use someone who can draw those animals very well. Like I said, I cannot pay anything, but I can offer you a great discount on the book once it is published. It's worth it, believe me. I hope to have this book done by the end of the year. But it also depends on how quickly I can finish the Meet the Mammals section.
I will be keeping you all up to date on the progress of this book.
Are you going to include the flying bird ideas I came up with-- the night-thrushes, the parrotfinches, and the Antarctic parrots?
I would. If you would like to submit pics for those ideas, you can send them to me by way of the Contact Us form. :)
I'm also good at drawing cats, if you need someone to draw the barofelids and ailurocyonids.
Yes, I do. If you could do that, it would be great. :)
I'm glad to see your project is still online and expanding! Happy New Year to you!
Happy New Year Paul. I haven't seen you in forever!
My project is still alive, as you may see. And I decided to gather links to spec bio projects and resources - the page is called "Blue Chimera". To be honest, I'd like to see your mammal ideas as a site again - pictures + descriptions of groups and species included.
Good to hear your site is still going strong.
As for descriptions, I am getting a companion book for this site set up, it'll have basic info about each of the species I depict on this site. I don't know exactly when it will become available, but I am working on it now.
Just begin your work - re-make your site (oh, not chemical green letters on black background, please!!!) and put the info you have for now, and then make new descriptions and pages - once or twice per month, to show your work in this field.
LOL! I'm not going to use green letters again. I like this site the way I have it now. I think it looks more professional this way. I just need to figure out how to put these pages of info up for all to see.
