Mr. Rolandi, you have inspired me. I just started learning to draw and do digital art. I aspire to be as good as you. I want to make my own scenes like this. Holy cow this is beautiful. It's like a diorama from a museum. It's lit so wonderfully.

What species of cichlid is the fish that swim around lungfish and bichir?Or it's just a damselfish that inhabit the river?Anyway the depiction of the bird is very detailed! :D

Interesting - I thought all critters were wiped out with the dinosaurs - I should have listened at school!

Come on, if all critters were wiped out than we would not exist.

Also, Birds are known to be descended cousins of meat-eating Dinosaurs.
