In contradiction to everything I said at the end of my post here - [link]
- I decided to submit at least to one of the All Yesterdays
contests, this one held by the guys at Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs (Dave, Marc, Niroot and Asher) - [link]
. I'm not really interested in the prizes, but I decided it would be a kick in the butt to work on something stylistic and colorful ... one in which I could see if, in fact, I can color. I stuck to mostly earth tones, and borrowed heavily from coloration in very showy birds, like peafowl and lyrebirds.
I chose this subject to show that one of the biggest theropods in the Djadokhta, Citipati osmolskae
, was probably not too concerned about hiding itself from predators, may have been able to kick Velociraptor
's butt, colors or no colors.
