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 vs. Giraffatitan: Two words: beaver style.'
~ 'A hundred Mononykus vs. Carcharodontosaurus: They'd swarm the big brute and crawl into all sorts of uncomfortable places.'
~ 'Protoceratops vs. Leptoceratops. 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...

Part II is here:

I have a big appreciation for very small lizardy things swarming larger things. So I must say how much I adore the Mononykus dust-up.

Oh! :o I had to check twice to see if this was yours, Peng :jawdrop: I'm really impressed by the gore-y details and concept. The worst, to me, would be the Giraffatitan and the 'ceratops fights (well, the first one isn't much of a fight :( ); when I mean worst, I mean the violent nature, not the illustration in itself, which I find amazingly done :nod:
You've reminded me that these giants would battle like this and eat each other in such terrible fashion. I'm eager to see the next part :)
Also, hope you're feeling better :hug:

Oh my! Far more violent stuff than we usually see from you. The Giraffatitan is quite disturbing. I'm choosing to see the Mononykus as fanboys/girls of the Carcharodontosaurus, lol. The tininess factor of the Mononykus amuses me greatly.

It's all excellently done, of course, but I can't quite get over the surprise! Still, going outside your comfort zone is rarely a bad thing, right? :)

Now, I just need to find some wood putty for that poor Giraffatitan's legs... =P

Why do I find the downfall of the Giraffatitan the most terrifying? *peeks through fingers*
All the little flying Mononykuses actually have a really neat effect.

I liked the 'flying' Mononykus too. I have a feeling they were trained at Wudan.

OK.. the little cera's are cute, despite the blood. Understandable favorite.
The mononykus swarm is somewhat distressing, but can still be taken humorously.
It's the "beaver style" drawing that I'm afraid is going to leave me scarred for life. It's horrible! :(
I rather regret loving it.
