A trio of hungry Zhuchengtyrannus have isolated and cornered a Sinoceratops. As the desperate ceratopsian exchanges roars with one of the tyrannosaurs, another closes in from behind and prepares to make the killing bite and finish the hunt.
Raptor Family
The dromaeosaurids, or “raptors” were a successful and adaptable family of mostly small, very bird-like carnivorous theropod dinosaurs. Left to right; Dakotaraptor, Velociraptor, Deinonychus, Halszkaraptor, Microraptor, Dromaeosaurus, Sinornithosaurus, and Austroraptor
Happy New Year everyone! This past orbital cycle around the sun has really been crazy for everyone I think. Personally it was probably one of if not the worst in my life for me and my family, but I've pulled through, and we'll pull through whatever challenges this next year faces! I'm especially excited for all the discoveries and achievements to be made in the realms of zoology, paleontology and environmental conservation this year!

As for what you can expect from me this year, here are some things to look forward to:
-The completion of my illustrations of all the major living mammal families(as well as some extinct/ancestral families, call it "honorable mentions" perhaps!)
-Illustration of all the major families and orders of living birds. With 10,000 known extant species, this will probably go on through the year.
-Art from BioTopia; the largest and most scientifically advanced zoological park in history where animals living and extinct roam together to give people an understanding and appreciation for the natural world and where research and technology come together to resurrect the past, inspire the present, and preserve the future!
-Art from the Neoterranic Period, 50,000,000 years after the Anthropocene and the extinction of humankind. 
-More reconstructions of prehistoric animals as well as depictions of living species.

I am a nerdy college guy with an extreme passion for animals of all kinds, especially extinct ones, and a talent and appreciation for art.

What you can expect to see from me:Dinosaurs and paleoart, wildlife art, biblical pieces, speculative evolution works, and perhaps fan-art.

If you love animals(dinosaurs included), have a kind, accepting heart, aren't afraid to be creative or weird, and aren't a douche, lets be friends!

The only real reason I am good at art is because I love animals and have always loved animals.

God and Christianity are important to me, yet I accept the theory of evolution as fact. It's not that hard, people!

I believe that all living things are connected, both spiritually and physically through evolution, and that my way I can please God is to help animals.

My all-time dream is to create my own exotic animal sanctuary so that I can save abused, abandoned and neglected exotic animals and give them natural homes that thy deserve.

Two things make me incredibly angry, abuse and neglect towards animals(especially animals in the exotic pet trade like keeping tigers and lions as pets!) and creationists blatant disregard of paleontological, geological, genetic, and archaeological evidence against their literal interpretation of the book of Genesis.

Any girls out there that wanna draw dinosaurs and rescue tigers with me?

If you don't wanna read the description these stamps sum me up pretty well!(NOT MINE, I JUST USED THEM!)

I just Favorited several of your drawings! So awesome!
I'm the same age as you, and a natural history buff too.

I'm a bit curious about what some of your creatures in the Lost World Reborn are based off of, as I have read the book and watched the original silent film, the film with the lizards wearing prosphetics and the BBC remake and do not recall anything that looked like some of them from there

There are other sources that some of the animals come from including a book called Dinosaur Summer by Greg Bear set after The Lost World. Other animals were simply original creations made to add more diversity to the fauna of the lost world.

Oh! Cool! I assume that Pongodactylus, the Proboscidisaurus, the Kastorosaurus and the Gohanosaurus are some of your own creations. Where did you get the inspiration for them? As in what gave you the ideas for their designs? 
MickeyRayRex Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2018  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah i dunno there just stuff i came up with. The Gohanosaurus came from Dragon Ball Z (hence the name) and a fellow deviant gave me the idea for the Kastorosaurus
