the top's stylized cave painting-like draw is absolutely terrifying, i love how it makes the dinosaur creature look like a mosquito sprawled over its prey. the bottom realistic bit isn't bad either, i love this!
I cannot help but be reminded of ravens when I see this. Those birds are remarkably intelligent, and have occasionally shown tool-using behavior in the wild. Of course, this is far more than just a simple bird, as your title clearly shows. Though now I wonder... Are these "birds" sentient? The carefully selected spear and the knife around the neck certainly imply that...
That cave painting is incredibly striking though. Must have some sort of shamanic value to whoever created it. Oh, and I am only realizing now that they must be pretty big, if they're hunting something that deer-sized.
Just for clarification, while i think that the Dinosauriods are well designed for what they are supposed to be and you do display your tallent while drawing them, i must confess that they are ugly as sin. Don't take this the wrong way, Nemo.
I don't think Nemo is too worried really, considering it shows that he effectively avoided the steriotypical "comfortable and stylish" of most alternate time lines, in a way you effectively could say it was a compliment because it just shows how original the idea is/how creative he is.
I'm glad that you submitted something after your two-month inactivity!
To me, this guy looks like a strange crow, and this is a neat approach to sapient dinosaurs, grabbing things not just with your hands, but with your bill as well. Does this mean that your Avisapiens is obsolete?
