Dinosaur Ark by aragornbird Dinosaur Ark by aragornbird
This piece was for the dinosaur portion of my Nature's Narrative class.
The hardest part wasn't the dinosaurs. Dinosaurs are easy. No, the hardest part was the spaceship as this was my first time drawing one. Not wanting to get into all the technical details, I made the thing more ambiguous. Half in clouds and half in darkness, it leaves more to the viewers imagination.

Never mind half of these didn't live at the same time. Oh, there I go again, complaining about a species' time overlap while there's a freking SPACESHIP taking them away. Great work!

What a fascinating concept!
I'm always intrigued by historical scenes with scifi elements, and these themes work together perfectly. Space and dinosaurs: two things that humans aren't entirely sure about!
