Retro Dino Cards

I used a rather vintage style and some intentionally outdated details in the previous set that got some pretty good reactions. I went all in for this set!
Let me know what you think :) And let'se see if you can find the references in anatomy and style I used.

The T.rex looks like something out of Hellboy.

I love this, as many of these very closely resemble illustrations I've seen in old books I've read (especially that Protoceratops, which brings back nostalgia from a book I have written by Roy Chapman Andrews), while still having their own style with a more "modern" or dynamic look.

Retro as they are, this is really great.

uhhhhm it wasnt science......
it was the people who drew dinosaurs like this.
we eventually found out what they really looked like, and some people were pissed off because their Edward Drinker Cope senpais were wrong about them.

Oh come the fuck off it.

Jesus Christ, it's been a year and even now I can still smell the fucking superiority complex on this comment.
