Yet Another Hilariously Dumb Video
[link] Hey, did you know that tiger sharks can reach 12 m in length? Or that entelodonts preyed on dinosaurs? Or that Titanoboa survived the K/T extinction? According to this guy, it's all fact.

Error Rundown: March of the Dinosaurs
As you may know, I wrote a docu-story focusing on the fauna of Prince Creek Formation in Alaska, so naturally March of the Dinosaurs, made by Impossible Picture and produced by Jasper James (the same people behind the Walking With...... series and Prehistoric Park) was a must do for me. This docu-film is very interesting in terms of aesthetic, given its odd mixture of nuance and outdated elements in regards to the portrayal of the animals. First off, the time frame is 70 mya (the early Maastrichtian) and this movie actually manages to avoid anachronism for the most part, though I say that a bit loosely, for several reasons. One noticeable e

What Are The Animals of WWD 3D?
Yes, the beautifully animated, amazingly up to date, and I-want-to-put-a-power-drill-into-my-eardrums obnoxious mess that’s loosely connected to the Walking With……. series via name only. I didn’t initially want to dignify this cinematic turd by giving it attention, but this film does cover the very interesting topic of the Prince Creek polar dinosaurs  (sort of anyway), which was the topic of my first docu-story XD, so I eventually gave in. Keep in mind that like most pieces of media, this movie glances over the fact that most of Prince Creek’s dinos were pygmies compared to their southern kin and models them a

Your drawings are always so overly gore. Maybe depict the peaceful side of nature sometimes, because predators killing herbivores all the time aren't "realistic scenarios". We have enough of gorey Paleo-art.

Actually, it is. Predators need to kill to survive, many of their hunts don't end in success, so they're always on the lookout for their next target.

And I don't see how any of my drawings are "overly gory" just because I show some blood in them. And I've done plenty of "peaceful" ones like the Sundance Sea, Mammoth Steppe and Gastornis/Eohippus, and plenty others that didn't involve hunting like Hot Springs.

Maybe tone it down a notch, though. It makes you feel awesomebro-ish. People know that predators need to hunt to survive, and it is a realistic situation, but..all of your art shouldn’t be focused on that. Or should I say MOST of your art.

"Awesomebro" is a buzzword that's vague and interpretive, and many people stretch it and abuse it to the point that any form of paleoart that's not entirely serene and blase might be labeled under "awesomebro". As long as it doesn't depict something unrealistic or overly outlandish or over the top graphic I don't consider it as "awesomebro" stuff (assuming it's meant to be realistic in the first place).

And I aim to do something unique and original with every drawing, I don't simply draw animals hunting, I always aim to put some interesting spin on it; from a homage to the Battle At Kruger to having a Squalodon hunt like an orca to showing an entelodont as a mother defending her calf from bear-dogs (instead of showing it as the archetypical blood-hungry brute).

Also, it’s just not “some” blood there’s A LOT of blood.

Hey dude, one of the most famous inaccurate reconstructions is the Kangaroo Lizards that Dinosaurs were until the 1970's, in that decade they said: "Hey, man, tild the hip up, the tail should be straight and stiffen (In case of Theropods) and make the animal look more bird like than Kangaroo like".
