Don't you hate when this happens to you when you're on vacation

This feel quite similar to Dennis Nedry's Death. Still the theropod is quite nice.

When you fail so badly that you get eaten by something that shouldn't be alive....

Astounding work! :)

See, this is why we can't go on vacation. You always stray from the group and try to pet the wild animals. XD

Very awesome picture I love the natural look of the dinosaur but also the dark, foreboding background. The thick moss hanging off of the trees, the branches lacing together like a net, awesome. X3

Thank you, I don't think anybody needs to see the painting after reading your description lol. :)

Heh, thanks! I strive to paint pictures with words! :D

Thanks and well done you for spotting that! This painting was done for a competition about inspirations and my inspiration was King Kong. Unfortunately the painting couldn't be reproduced on time for me to enter. This is only a part of the painting the rest shows the mans wife bound at the base of the altar stone. The whole painting didn't photograph very well, once I have a decent photo I will post that too. :)

That would be cool =)

What were your inspirations for the theropod, I guess it's no known species =)
RussellMarks's avatar
correct, it came from my sketch book but I think I must have been inspired by an old Invicta model I have of megalosaurus and crested proceratosaurs, but yes I wanted it to be a fantasy design. I call my dodgy dinos Pseudosaurs. :)
Hyrotrioskjan's avatar
Ah, yes I see a bit megalosaur in it :nod:
