Dinosauroids Teaser 03 by nemo-ramjet Dinosauroids Teaser 03 by nemo-ramjet
Remember the dinosauroids? ( [link] )

Over the past month I worked extensively on their culture, and imagined how their troglodyte art might look like on the walls of the Miocene. In this complex arts project I'm trying to find links between our evolution and our art, fossils and spontaneous painting, all the while running around naked, pretending I'm a theropod.

i personally think you're generalising things a bit, i like to thing that cave paintings are a specific trait from ancestral culture that evolved into existance because of the way our brain and our morphology evolved, you're basically saying that any sapient inteligence that might arize on our planet would develop cave paintings and evolve a quite similar culture to ours? anyway, i absolutely love your source of inspiration, running around naked pretending to be a dinosaur is genius! =]

Dinosaurian cave art, what a fascinating idea. I wonder what could develop from this...dinosaur hieroglyphs? Sculptures? Frescos? A dinosaurian Renaissance? Neo-cubism? Who knows...

Very nicely done! Kind of reminds me of some drawings of Leonora Carrington. Anyway, this is great .

I've heard of various concepts like dinosauroids, but I've never heard of anyone trying to imagine their culture, that's mind-blowing
The style of these pieces of artwork is awesome as well, and very believable!

you have very original concepts and designs.
maybe you should check out the BBC documentary "How art changed the World".
it explains man's pereception of art, perfection, how art changed through time, how art started etc.
interesting stuff.

Once again this is something I love. The cave art of them is good and I love the concept for the creature itself. I can see how one would evolve to look more human but your idea does biologically make more sence. I mean it's ancestors already had at least partially stereoscopic vision and had grasping hands that were used to manipulate there prey and potentially there surroundings. There bodies were already adapted to manipulate the world around them all they needed to do was develope the mental capacity to do it. Anyway Greats stuff. I'd love to see what a slightly more avanced culture of there's would look like.

Thanks! An advanced version would look like... I dunno? Perhaps with art resembling the Bayeoux tapestry?

Haha! Neat! You don't have to run around naked like jurassic park's "raptors", you can do it in feathers like the real ones!!

That would give "tarred and feathered" a whole new meaning.

Are these different, but still intelligent species discussing something? Like, who's kill it is, or just the price of fish?
I'm trying to learn what I can from these paintings, but it's not always obvious.

These two are shamans, wearing masks of wood and bone. Maybe they are trying to tell the future from that poor opposite-birdie's insides.
