Simon Roy's Black Dinosauroid by nemo-ramjet Simon Roy's Black Dinosauroid by nemo-ramjet
Slavers and nomads, mostly.
Hear their screeches, and obey!
This one is canon, obviously.

I think I saw a picture of this on an article dealing with how an intelligent dinosaur would look like. Far more credible than the old Troodon sapien stuff.

Have you read the comic called Aldebaran (written and illustrated by Léo)? A lot of weird creatures that could serve as inspiration.

I am intrestet to know but would these creatures have simmilar intelegence a humanoids and if so would they have religion, science, art etc ? and would they wear clothes although they would have feathers and if time and nature dictates would they drive cars industarilize, Digitalize. Anyway I was wondering to answer my question could you sketch up a mock of a Dinosauroid city.

You're welcome. There are plenty of crows around here, and when I watch them strutting about doing their thing, I find it pretty easy to imagine these guys trotting about in their place.

Sorry to be a nudge on such an excellent drawing, but isn't the arm wrong? I mean look at hoatzin chicks, shouldn't the third finger be hidden behind the wing feathers?

Simon & I had designed these guys with shorter arm feathers and "naked" hands - thus the bare-fingered look...

Welp that is one way that my upcoming dinosauroid will differ from yours then! The other will be that it has specialized teeth, cobra like ones in the front used to slide food further into their mouths where it is grinded up by molar like teeth :)

Now here's an idea: You made a parrot-based sophont, but what about a crow or cetacean sophont?
Especially the crow one (which Roy's dinosauroid clearly takes inspiration from).

A sophont based on a true corvid? Wow - could be interesting. It would actually look pretty much like a real crow, perhaps with a bigger head and longer, secretary bird-type legs.

Hmmm... Good point! Crows are pretty adept as is when it comes to using their bodies to manipulate objects. I'm curious how crafting more complex tools would be done.

Do they use something like clothes or a harness?

Yep. Check out Simon Roy's work for examples of such harnesses.

I like this guy, even though I'm not particularly enamored of the birdoid look. I do like dinosaurs drawn with a thick neck ruff, it just looks "right" for some reason, and it's very rarely done.

Are you doing these originally in pen or are the lines done digitally?
Reply
:iconnemo-ramjet:
nemo-ramjet Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2010
It's all digital, but the resolution is very high, so it looks almost hand-drawn.

I kind of thought so, but didn't want to assume.

So these are slavers, what would yours be considered (If the universe is the same?)

nemo-ramjet Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2010
Mine are sedentary farmers and city builders. They use slaves too.

I must have missed the memo, there's more than one type of dinosauroid in this universe?
Reply
:iconnemo-ramjet:
nemo-ramjet Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2010
yep, there are 3 closely-related intelligent species, 4 if you are broad minded.

Ahh ok, and how are relations between the two species?

Sort of like Schytians/Huns vs. Romans, or Turkic Nomads vs. the Chinese.

Sounds like quite a world! What kind of medium will the project likely become? A graphic novel? Website like Snaiad?

I love the details of feathers/fuzz and I'm also glad to see more of these guys. It's a great piece of art and a great brake from the cliched humanoid dinosaur look.

What, might I inquire, is all this talk about being "canon?"

There are some dinosauroid-like creatures in my gallery (the sapient oviraptorosaur, the pterosophont, etc.) that are not from "the" dinosauroids universe.
