Insufferable dA title restrictions.David Orr's Insterspecies Conflict Wishlist, Part I
Larger view here
(recommended; you can just about see the expressions of the Giraffatitan and Incisivosaurus).
Given my propensity
for Saurian silliness
, I felt that the absurdity of David Orr's wish list of 'Interspecies Conflict'
on Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs
was exactly the kind of thing for me to tackle. Being the utter slowcoach that I am, however, I was beaten to the challenge
by the wonderful *patriatyrannus
. Nevertheless, I received David's blessing that I may still 'take a crack at it', so here is part one of my damp squib of a result.
They are, clockwise:
~ 'Four strategically placed Incisivosaurus
: Two words: beaver style.'
~ 'A hundred Mononykus
: They'd swarm the big brute and crawl into all sorts of uncomfortable places.'
. The most disgusting display of brutality and gore imaginable.'
I said that the nonsense felt like my kind of thing, but when I came to actually drawing it, I think I was rather traumatised (the excessively gentle creature that I am
). I'm not sure which distressed me more; the Giraffatitan or the ceratopsian pair. Incidentally, the latter is my favourite of this group, though not for all the blood, obviously.
Whilst drawing the Mononykus, I had to start numbering them
after seventy to avoid losing count. Well, I
thought it looked funny...
