Dakotaraptor Growth Cycle

By arvalis

Saurian, the dinosaur game I do art for is now on Kickstarter!  I now get to show off the full growth cycle for the first playable dinosaur, Dakotaraptor.  No spoilers, but those youngins have some awfully large wings, I wonder what that could mean for gameplay...

So out of curiosity, how different will the males and females be?
FeatherNerd's avatar
Probably, the males will be darker in color
DieHard300's avatar
I beg to differ, in modern birds the males have always much more vivid colors than the females, while the females have less, darker colors.

Dude, that comment is from 2016, not yesterday

Well, I have no way to know if you have realized that, so I inform just in case.

As anyone else noticed the human he used is Dr. Robert Burke from the Lost World: Jurassic Park? Because that's just hilarious.

Probably want to look up the real paleontologist named Robert Bakker...

I love the uncanny resemblance to the actual paleontologist's name. Just makes me wanna slap Horner even more.

I never knew that character was based off of a real paleontologist. Awesome. TIL.

I know. PCAwesomeness told me.

You'd be incorrect, as usual.

I am never incorrect.

Wow, such rude.

Good luck treating those who try to be kind like that, idiot.

Lol, you just called him an idiot. So much for 'practice what you preach'.
