A gift for a friend, taking the “animals riding other animals” motif to its logical conclusion, as well as exploring themes of survival and evolution. Plus: dinosaurs! (That’s supposed to be a Tyrannosaurus riding a Saltasaurus with two Triceratops strapped to the side, plus a few unspecific Pterosaurs for long-range aerial engagements.)

It would be a mistake for me not to mention Raul Martin’s illustrations for "National Geographic Dinosaurs (2001)", which I stole from/referenced while making this drawing.

Awesome!
Although the Saltasaur seems a bit Argentinosaur-esque in size.

This brings warmth into my heart. Especially since I'm a geology major. I'm gonna find a dinosaur like that someday :)

O-O... that would be a scary sight. I can see the Triceratops droping off to charge at a target :). Great Illustration.
