Finally, the (rather artistically experimental) follow-up to Posse – ha.

I'm kinda getting this vibe to where, sure, it may look the opposite, but the outlaws on carnotaurs will actually be the good guys. They look rather sinister right now, though.

This came out a bit sketchy; I may go back in and re-tool this, or I may leave it as-is. We'll see! Sauropods have such strange feet, so I hope I got that at least marginally correct.

(Also, I find it totally understandable that many people commenting on my previous dino piece brought up ARK: Survival Evolved, but I have actually never been able to play it! I was more inspired by James Gurney and Dinotopia than anything. Still, I totally see the connection!)

What do the natives ride on?
If you're going to make a series of it, we will keep coming back and drooling and cooing over it. Promise.


I love how the dino looks as startled as its rider.

My goodness this is gorgeous--and I definitely got the James Gurney vibes off of it (love the Dinotopia series--lucked out once at the bookstore once and got one of the books on sale :D).  And considering I've fantasized about this sort of storyline, I would love to learn more about these guys--cowboys on dinosaurs yes!  And I love how gorgeous and so very much like an oil painting this looks like--I didn't realize it was digital until I looked at the information.  And the lighting is gorgeous and the motion and staging is grand and I just love it. :love:
Excellent work!  Looking forward to more! :la:
