Artwork Description

This is set a month or so after the astroid impact. I'm certainly no expert on what conditions would have been like for the survivors of the initial blast. Maybe something like this, who really knows!...... As always thanks for looking

I specially like the detail of the cut marks on the dinossaur's face. It makes you feel his suffering.

So strong and beautifully done -- memorable! Subtle colours, yet they emphasize the apocalyptic subject wonderfully...

Thank you my friend, I guess I've always loved dinosaurs to and there all the more fascinating because they actually existed. Thanks again!

I think you have to feel for the dinosaurs. They were around for so long and were so successful, and would probably still be here if it weren't for that random cosmic collision. But then again it did give us mammals are shot! Thanks Ken!

Thanks Rita,... that's one of the reasons I've always loved dinosaurs.... There like the real life dragons and monsters of myth and legend, very scary!

Thanks Marley.... To have something I've done realised on the big screen would be a dream come true! Though This did have a soundtrack of sorts.... Me making explosion noises every so often, LOL... I,m such a child!
