On the Outskirts of Melakhis by nemo-ramjet On the Outskirts of Melakhis by nemo-ramjet
Months of experimenting with digital painting are finally bearing fruit: Here is a sub-adult Ceratosaurus, roaming the grey plains next to the dead city of MELAKHIS, built by the things that lived before dinosaurs walked the earth.

I'm Somewhat curious as to whether or not this is in some way related to your all tomorrow's project?

This has just the perfect amount of mystery and unknowability. It leaves me with far more questions than answers.

So.......MELAKHIS was built by sapient therapsids or something?

Could this city Melakhis have been built by those sapient prolacertiformes that you designed a while ago?

Is the dead city of MELAKHIS very far away from our Ceratosaurus, or were the things that lived before dinosaurs walked the earth really, really small? Because the latter thought just occurred to me, and it is an amazing one.

AWESOME.  I would never guess this was a digital painting--and that's not a knock on digital painting, just an indicator of your success at emulating the qualities of analog media.

A very graceful Ceratosaurus, recalling Doug Henderson's dinos to some extent.  Was Melakhis built by the Elder Things, by any chance?

Will you at some point be showing what these mysterious builders of Melakhis looked like?

I always thought the concept of a lost civilization of prehistoric sapients was cool, especially around the Mesozoic era. One would think such a thing is more plausible than we suspect. If humans disappeared tomorrow, what would be left of us for a future race of sapients to study? A few scattered remains that might be interpreted as something completely non-sapient? We might never even have existed as far as they'd be concerned.

"built by the things that lived before dinosaurs walked the earth"? So you planted some "typical fantasy" in there, not to shabby ;).

This fusion of accurate dinos and sci-fi is great. It's a quiet kind of great and I love it.

As I said in your previous deviation, I really like this new style of yours, both color and texture-wise, it's quite eye-pleasing.
The "things" that built Melakhis wouldn't happen to be Elder Things, would they? :D

Perhaps this one is starving? Maybe it was surviving on the scavengers within the city?
