A drawing was inspired by "All Yesterdays", especially the sleeping T. rex.

I wonder how and where theropods could rest. Who knows, maybe in a hot spring during winter...

The animal you see here is not a particular genus, I thought about Atrociraptor or Dromaeosaurus; it is one of my less spectacular ideas, more stuff will come soon.

Cladocyclus, or how I call it: the dwarfed Xiphactinus. It's one of the smallest Ichthyodectiforms, a group which members can easily reach 5 m and more. With 1,2 m Cladocyclus is just a bite for it's bigger cousins (which are known to feed on close relatives) but it could be still a possible snack for Spinosaurus. I have seen photos of large crocodiles which drag their jaws through the water to catch small fishes. I could imagine that these fishes lived in small swarms where a big predator would just need to bite in the water.

By the way: I had recently a idea which purpose the hump/sail of Spinosaurus could have too upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia… just think about it ;) (or forget it better, I wasn't the first...)

The Hor were a nomadic civilization in the savanna of north africa. They are the model for the egyptian gods Horus and Ra. They lived in pyramid-like tents and hunts primitiv unicorns and camels.
As shapeshifters of the third rank they can shift one part of their body. Here it's the head.

Pachyvenator
Lenght: 9m/30 feet
Height:3 m/10 feet
Weight: 1-2 tons
mix between Pachyhirnosaurus and Austarlovenator

Pachyhirnovenator looks similar to Ultimasaurus but has a different look, it was bred to make a less dangerous version of the ultimasaurus but it was failed, the hybrid wer just as dangerous. The head has a thick and powerfull skull, perfetc for raming into victims before tearing them apart with the long claws.

Baryonyx= Heavy claw
Codename: Snapper
Diet:carnivore,piscivore
Lenght:9-10 m
Height:3 m
Wheight:2 tons
Early Cretacious, 130-125 mya
Area:Europe

A smaller cousin to the gigantic Spinosaurs but not less dangerous. Baryonyx was bred since it was a odd looking theropod with a foretaste for fish, thougt to be easy to handle for keepers but they are dangerous and dont only feed on fish but also attack smaller dinosaurs. The large hook like claws on the first finger are lethal weapon effective when catching fish and killing other dinosaurs

One of the adult Baryonyx wounded a ranger so bad that he couldnīt work anymore. Baryonyx can be found on both Sorna and Nublar, the individuals found on Sorna lives in caves and near lakes and rivers were they meet competition from the crocodile Deinosuchus.

Dangerous, unpredictable

Stegospinus
lenght: 9 m/ 30 feet long
Height: 2 m/ 7 feet long
Weight: 4 tons
Mix between Spinosaurus and Stegosaurus

This large herbivore is both lethal and strong able to run up to 20 km/h to catch a unlucky victim that may disturb it. The large spikes are perfect for killing combined with the hook like claws on the hands, stegospinus can tear a human into pices within seconds....

"Rorsh cares nothing for goals or sides in the battles wracking western Immoren and offers his services for reasonable payment and no questions asked. He carries his lever-action pig iron and a fondness for explosives from one battlefield to the next. His greatest weapon is the gargantuan bipedal fighting boar Brine, whom Rorsh takes particular delight in unleashing to rend enemies limb from limb."

More from the upcoming Hordes expansion, Metamorphosis.

Add one part "A Fist Full of Dynamite", one part The-Pig-With-No-Name and season liberally with Lee Marvin; out'll pop Rorsh - one of my favorites of the new Minion Lesser Warlocks that will be in Metamorphosis.

"Grim masters of elemental cold, the icy stares of the Koldun Lords seem almost to freeze the blood of those they gaze upon. Koldun Lords often obscure themselves and the warjacks under their control in a mist filled with churning snow and capable of freezing solid any foolish enough to approach too closely. So too do these wizards instill the blade or cannon of their 'jacks with a chilling mystical rime that even the fleshless dead can feel."

More from the land of rivets and fun.

Changyuraptor yangi is a newly-described microraptorine dromaeosaur dinosaur from the early Cretaceous (Yixian formation) of Liaoning, China. 

The animal would have been around 4 feet long in life, and its fossil shows that it was covered in feathers -- including, as in its smaller cousin Microraptor, a pair of "leg wings" represented by long paired pennaceous feathers on the metatarsals and tibiotarsus. One of Changyuraptor's most unique features is its voluminous tail feathers, and these feathers constitute the longest of any known non-avian dinosaur, with the most distal retrices reaching around 30 cm in length.

Changyuraptor is also by far the largest "four-winged" dinosaur known, and while this might not be as big of a deal as it sounds (given that there aren't very many "four-winged" dinosaurs), it does show that small size wasn't necessarily the gatekeeper to certain volant adaptations. I personally doubt that this animal was doing anything approaching powered flight, but the long tail feathers and multiple sets of long, well-developed lifting surfaces may have been a boon to gliding and controlled descent. The exceptionally long tail feathers therefore might have been used as a sort of "pitch control" device, wherein a large, relatively heavy animal would have needed especially fine-tuned control over rapid falls onto prey or in safe landings from higher ground. As Buzz Lightyear would say, "This isn't flying, it's falling with style!"

This is the seventh of my illustrations for mine and *Agahnim's evolution book, Sinosauropteryx prima. If you're unfamiliar with our book, feel free to check out the previous six illustrations: Jinfengopteryx, Microraptor, Archaeopteryx, Velociraptor, Sinornithosaurus, and Epidexipteryx.

Sinosauropteryx, from the early Cretaceous of China's Liaoning, is famous as being the first dinosaur found with fossilized feather impressions, and one of the most primitive. Its feathers were very simple, and would have been little more than furry down. It was thought that this animal's body covering may have been collagen fiber remains instead of feathers, but more recent analysis of its long tail - which shows an alternation of light and dark bands - shows that it was more likely to be primitive down.

As usual, lots of appreciation to *Agahnim and the Gondolendians for their help and advice with this.

Medium: Prismacolor pencil over watercolor on illustration board.

Phew... finally done with this. Talk about a very long and arduous piece. My hand still hurts.

Anyway, this is a colored pencil reconstruction of two Lower Cretaceous dinosaurs found in the Liaoning province of China, Sinornithosaurus millenii and Dilong paradoxus. Sinornithosaurus, the orangish winged beasts in the trees, are small maniraptors. Here, the female is protecting the nest while the male (with his distinctive bright red head) is attempting to lure the predator away.

The predator in this case, Dilong, is a somewhat recently discovered basal tyrannosaur. Both of these animals have feathers, and they are non-speculative, as both have had skeletal imprints unearthed with very obvious and precise feather patterns. These animals have not been found together but their location and time period suggests they may have been contemporaneous.

I guess that's it. This thing took me freaking forever. I was going to try to get it into next month's issue of Prehistoric Times for the "Feathered Dinosaurs Revisited" section, but I obviously missed the deadline. Oh well, you fine DA folks can enjoy it instead.

During the siege of Saguntum, Hannibal is wounded in the hip by a spear. Two of his soldiers hold him down as his physician removes the spearhead.

(The man on the far left is Bomilkar, soon to be Hannibal's bodyguard captain. It's his first week as Hannibal's guard and he probably thinks crucifixion is more likely at this stage than promotion...)

Note #1: No, I decided against something to bite on. This seems to have less common than films make us believe. And it would have looked totally disgraceful for the strategos autokrator of Libya and Iberia. 
Note #2: That said, clutching at the physician's assistant is probably not a very smart move...

I started out veeeery loosely from a reference angelasasser-stock.deviantart.… by AngelaSasser-stock, but all that's remained of that is really the angle of Hannibal's left arm. ;) Still, the angle of the ref shot was dead useful for building up the scene, so thank you! :)

Hannibal rubbed his right eye; an old habit. "Hasdrubal needs to move closer to the river," he said, grimacing. "He won't like it a bit, but he's taking up too much space there. If he stays like that, we'll have the Roman centre overlapping ours."
Hanno looked at his uncle. "Shall I ride down and tell him?"
"Yes, see to it. If he doesn't like it, tell him to bite off *my* head, if he dares; not yours."
Hanno grinned. "I'll tell him." He whistled on two fingers; his riders turned their mounts and rode after him.

On the ninth evening of Hannibal's crossing of the Alps, after attacks of hostile Celts, Hannibal receives reports of the day's losses over a meagre meal of gruel. The man standing on the left is Maharbal, one of Hannibal's best leaders and closest friends. His younger brother Mago hands around the food, while Spartan chronicler Sosylos tries to keep up with the reports despite his freezing fingers.

They're probably a bit less sexy than you're used to...

Just a quick and dirty sketch for Mermaid Week, which was last week? Yeah. Something.

No, they don't look too much like girls with fish butts. I just wanted to play with actually having the creatures look like they're aquatic - which humanoid features are definitely not. I was also toying with different physiological traits and different ecological niches for the "maids."

THIS IS A PREHISTORIC WHALE, NOT A TASMANIAN TIGER.
I gave them a similar color pattern, is all.

Once upon a time, there were no herbivorous mammals- but there were hoofed mammals - ungulates. Pakicetus is a member of an extinct line of ungulates that were carnivorous - so although they look like dogs, they're actually more closely related to sheep and hippos.

And yes, they are actually one of the basal ancestors of whales. How do we know? In the inner ear of Pakicetus is a specific feature endemic to their family group, which no other group of animals share- except modern whales! CRAZY.

These guys lived in what is now Pakistan 55-40 million years ago, and during that time, the Indian subcontinent had yet to plow into Asia (creating the Himalayas), so until then, these guys had a nice beachfront where they could frolic and eat fishies in the warm shallow lagoons. :D

Notice they already had the long fish-catching snout and high-rotated eye sockets on top of their head, perfect for breathing while swimming!

This is a painting done for The Games We Play show in San Francisco, which will be up from March to April [link]

yay!
