[T]he crux of this project is based on the following premise, and not an altogether original one. The great dinosaur-killer, the Chicxulub asteroid, misses earth. However, the resulting world is not simply a long-lived cretaceous paradise – the Deccan Traps still flooded the sky with ash and changed the climate and atmosphere, killing off most, if not all, of the great dinosaurs. The survivors of such an event, however, are a handful of small therapods, mammals, birds, and even a few pterosaurs.
Do yourself a favour and read through the rigorous thinking that Simon Roy has put into conjuring the physiology and culture of his Dinosauroids. Amazing work.
It’s a real honor to see my labor of love from art school surface again! Post cretaceous dinosaurs to the max!
