Tyrannosaurus rex

“Falling debris and molten rocks the size of a modern Volkswagen beetle crash all around her. She pushes through the forest and the flames as fast as her legs will allow. The air is full of smoke making breathing more difficult. Her vision begins to blur as the glow of the red and orange flames in the darkness begin to blend together. One after another, smaller meteors explode on impact, throwing more debris into the air and pushing the queen side to side. The flames reflect in her eyes and for the first time, you see real fear from an animal that has never experienced the emotion before. She lets out a cry that echoes through the devastation. Resonating in he ears of the remaining animals for miles .”

[from the novel "Escape from the Cretaceous" by Benjamino Antonio Manarello]

This was the most likely inspiration for Beast In Black's song, End of the World. Just listening to that song will give one such visions

This reminds me of the land before time.

Great job, sad story, but great job

This is an incredibly dynamic, rather gut-wrenching piece. You are one talented artist
