Your art is masterful. It really looks as though it's moving through the murky water.

Kawaii... but where did you find information about animals which lived after dinosaurs?

Mostly journal articles, web search, pictures of fossils taken at museums and elsewhere. For instance, if you type Paleoparadoxia in Google, you'll find plenty of references on this animal, especially the mounted skeleton at SLAC, Stanford, from an unamed Palaeoparadoxia species very similar to Paleoparadoxia tabatai from Japan represented here but larger (probably the same species if you ask me).

Just a note concerning the Stanford specimen, it has actually a name since last year, I just find out: Paleoparadoxia repenningi.
