Done this before, but did not get any takers. I wonder why. Pick a species of dinosaur. Nope. WAY too much to ask. I will pick it myself. Puertasaurus reulii, envisioned as a lognkosaurian titanosaur. Tyrannosaurus rex, envisioned as a dinosaur. Feather it or don't, I do not care.
Since a few paleoartists seem to think such artists as Knight and Burian are passe, I want to see something: I want to see if anyone here besides me likes dramatic dinosaur paintings/drawings. Multiple views of each. Have rexees and Puertas interacting. Have them attacking, playing pool, swimming, etc., etc., and so on. Dinos, no matter if dressed or undressed must be original, reasonably anatomically accurate, from what is known, and the pic must have a live feel to it.
All references MUST be credited. Crediting for inspirations are optional, but really appreciated.
I know these guys couldn't have met in real life. And I know poker games were unlikely...maybe Velociraptors could have handled the cards? No reason not to add other species, in other words. I like the idea of us having fun with this...or be deathly serious!
If you want to measure-measure-measure, feel free to do so.
For me, the drama will decide who wins...and accuracy. Drama/life FIRST! I have several ideas. My references are rex skeletons and Paleo King's superb renderings of his thoughts on Puertasaurus. My inspirations are Knight, Burian, real life, and Paleo King.
P.S.-In honor of Paleo King, I emphasize that these creatures could never have met in real life. Way too far apart! BUT! I want an imaginative aspect as well as science to come into focus, so I deliberately set it up this way. Besides, a meeting...battle?...poker game?...etc. between these two species ought to be awesome.
P.P.S.- I name some of my favorite paleoartists below, artists whose work sings of life to me. Anyone else whom you think of as having these qualities? I have seen some ubercool work of unmentioned people here on DA, but I want to leave the door open for your thoughts...whether or not they are DA members.
