Part 2 of this VS series, the toddle Kandi then seems to be changing Babel into something more. After losing some limbs, growing flat, and shrinking to a much smaller size, she become a little Babel lollipop. Which Kandi seems to be enjoy alot ^^
Just some random dinosaur characters. Iīm not sure whether Iīm going to make a webcomic with them or not. Most names are just placeholders till I find a better name.
Manny: A not very bright Mamenchisaurus who often talks with his tail, which he refers to as "Mister X", because it is mysteriously silent... Comment: As I said, this post on the "Sauropod Vertebra Picture of the Week" Blog [link] inspired me to make a schizophrenic sauropod XD
LOLKOL: An always smiling Kol ghuva with few problems and bad grammar. The only time he is serious is when he complains about his stubby arms. Comment: While drawing my cartoon dinosaurs I suddenly got the feeling that I should include a dinosaur based on those LOLCATS you find everywhere on the internet. And this alvarezsauridīs name just rhymed so well with LOL.
Mr. A. : A totally badass Anchiornis. Never make this dinosaur angry, youīll regret it. Comment: I think itīs obvious on which person this character is based off. Come on, itīs a black dinosaur with mohawk-style feathers on his head! How can you not turn it into a dinosaurian Mr. T.? XD I know Anchiornisī true colours were a little bit different, here Iīve got an accurately coloured one if you want one: [link]
Alex: A lone Alectrosaurus. He hates everyone on Earth for no real reason and usually wallows in self-pity. What makes him especially depressive is the fact that his arms are too short to score himself. Comment: Look, EMO-dino! Alectrosaurus means "unmarried lizard", so I first wanted to make this a dinosaur acting extremely unpleasant to others, which would have been the reason he has no wife, yet. But Alectrosaurus can also be translated as "alone lizard", and then I thought this is the perfect chance to draw probably the first EMO dinosaur on DA!
Marsh: A very serious Othnielia or Othnieliosaurus. He is constantly argueing with the more light-hearted Drinker Cope. Comment: This dinosaur is obviously named after its discoverer, Othniel Charles Marsh, and the relationship with Cope is based on the originalsī famous "Bone Wars".
Cope: A nearly always drunken Ornithopod of the species Drinker nisti. He often argues with Marsh, though he doesnīt understand most parts of their discussions. Comment: Come on, the genus name Drinker is way too hilarious to be ignored. Is there a better way to introduce an alcoholic dinosaur? Gotta love his face.
Comment: Iīm not sure about this one... Maybe I took one step too far with this dinosaur. He is supposed to be a Mochlodon, born in Austria, and World War II veteran. I think a dinosaur based on Adolf Hitler may not be the right figure for a comic...
Pleo: This old Poekilopleuron is a World War II veteran and Communist. He often tries to impose others on his ideology with the help of his relative Dabby. Comment:Not as extreme as an Adolf Hitler dinosaur, but a communist dinosaur might still be a little bit too serious for a comic (but this isnīt supposed to be a comic for little children, either). At first I wanted to make the communist a really small dinosaur like Compsognathus so it has more problems to assert himself, but then I got the World War II idea and chose Poekilopleuron, whose skeleton was destroyed.
Dabby: A young Dubreuillosaurus who tries to help his cousinīs grandfather Pleo spreading his communism ideology over the world, but has absolutely no idea of politics. Comment: This is what would turn the serious communist idea into something more humorous. The relationship between Dabby and Pleo is a reference to the fact that Dubreuillosaurus was originally assined to the genus Poekilopleuron, but has been renamed in 2006.
Orni: A quarrelsome Ornitholestes who often gets himself into trouble. He has already black eyes and even a broken nose, but he doesnīt seem to care. Comment: This character is obviously based on the fact that Ornitholestes was once believed to have had a small horn on its nose which was actually a broken nasal bone.
Lurdo: An actually quite patient Lurdusaurus. He is a passionate sumo wrestler and the strongest and heaviest off all characters. Comment: I already pointed out that Lurdusaurus was a very heavily-built iguanodontid. And what could be a better job for such a ponderous animal than sumo wrestling?
Time for Babel's VS comic. One of the suggestions I got for the month of Shinichi interested me, but I was never able to get around to it. Then I thought the character involved would make a great subject for Babel's VS.
The character is 's OC Kandi Kane. Here we have Babel turning Kandi into a little toddler, but then the child-minded toddler turns Babel's body into candy. Looks like she's enjoying her own little prank.
Fan Creations made by for Needles. This was kind of a quick sketch, so no shading in this one.
The Kempen is the bat-like creature on the right, the Leptophobe is the one on the left. These creatures are NOT TO SCALE.
A race of Bat-like creatures native to the Badlands and Canyons of the Underworld, but recently they have been inching their way to the outskirts of cities, attacking any of those who decide night is a good time to roam. They are very territorial but strangely live together in large colonies. They are usually bearing many scars, missing fingers and tears in their wings from in-fighting. Obviously, they are carnivorous and hunt animals smaller than themselves. They bite into prey with their razor sharp teeth and tear it apart.
A venomous, horrifying abomination from an alternate dimension. Leptophobes have an arsenal of biological weaponry that could make even the biggest, baddest creatures tremble. Leptophobes themselves are about 9 meters tall! They are completely blind, but this doesn't hinder their hunting abilities in the slightest, relying on smell and echolocation as their main senses. It has two pairs of tentacles on it's torso, the flatter ones allowing it to grip prey, and the blade-like ones allowing it to tear and eviscerate smaller creatures.
The Taker is a dragon-like creature native to the Europe and Asia Underworld Equivalents to the Overworld. They are fairly large, measuring up to 8.2 meters (26ft) in length. They are brightly colored creatures, always orange and/or black, and each Taker has it's own special pattern. No two takers are alike, though most are orange with black markings, but some individuals can be all orange or all black. They are aggressive creatures, especially females with young (which are born live), but they can be tamed, and many members of Thanatos' army have them as guard and combat animals. They have two pairs of eyes, a primary and secondary pair. The Primary eyes are what truly give the Takers good vision, and the secondary eyes sense heat and electromagnetic impulses only visible to them. Their sense of hearing is fairly good, but their sense of smell is not the best. They are obviously carnivores, and they have powerful jaws and talons. Females have smaller horns than males, but are usually larger in size.

P.I.N.S. is a robot developed by a secret government organization that was designed to eradicate the supernatural creatures that are starting to infect the Overworld. From that description, one would assume that it would be one of Needles' pals. Wrong assumption. Needles and his team are not excluded from the "To Kill" list. That's because this organization does not trust Needles or his team mates. P.I.N.S. is, for the most part a mechanical puppet programmed to be a killing machine, but he does have some form of artificial intelligence that is comparable to that of a young, curious child. He is armed with many weapons. Normally in place of his twin miniguns shown here, are a pair of hands. These hands can be automatically swapped with the aforementioned Miniguns as well as flamethrowers, grenade launchers, plasma cannons, and chainsaws that can be heated up until they turn red hot. He is also very physically strong, and can throw a concrete shattering punch or a deadly roundhouse kick. Underneath the plates of his razor sharp tail is a form of very strong rubber that can bend and stretch with ease. His armor is highly durable, almost indestructible. As seen here, he is also able to fly with the jets coming off from his back and legs. Many creatures that come into contact with P.I.N.S. don't last very long. His name meaning is still a mystery.....
