'Aprontosaurus' by Himmapaan 'Aprontosaurus' by Himmapaan
Introducing Aprontosaurus pengi. :D

The correct name of the sauropod popularly recognised as 'Brontosaurus' is of course Apatosaurus. Though the name 'Brontosaurus' seems resolutely to refuse to disappear: even some dinosaur enthusiasts are sentimentally fond of it.

In a moment of dino-silliness (and I have plenty of those), I squished the two names together to form 'Aprontosaurus', and this was the immediate image which entered my head.

I can take almost no credit for the design of the wonderful steam-engine-type-thing: it was directly inspired by French animator Michel Ocelot's Les Trois Inventeurs, and I only made a few modifications.

LMAO This is brilliant! It's humor is only outmatched by the image itself. Very well done, and both characters are so cute with so much expression! :)
