Raptor Wrap-Up

Jeff (aka Afroassault) took up the gauntlet of the friendly dinosaur post and sent me this lovely photoshop:


Don't be shy now, all you artistes out there, go ahead and send me your version of how the story ends!

To be posted here.


Here's AO's shot (WARNING: language not suitable for my nephews):

What I can't understand is - how come the raptor is the same colour as the cartoon kid's hair? All camoflage issues aside, does that mean the raptor is actually covered in flowing golden locks like a golden retriever or that the (already quite scary) child has a scaly reptillian protuberance sprouting from his skull?

(and possibly feasting on his brain)

In the wild, the raptor's natural prey includes the yellow-crested mullet.

I would love a picture of the raptor feasting on the kid's brain! *hint*

A little dark, to be sure, but let's be clear about one thing, if raptors were to ever return this book would be a great diservice to our species.

If raptors ever return, we have bigger problems than this book [cue dramatic music]

One "F" in Afro Assault, thank you very much. Also, that picture never saw the light of Photoshop. No, that's a hand drawn picture that was scanned and subsequently colored with MSPaint.

I hate MSPaint.

How's this? I'm not much of an artist but I think it gets the point across.

That's great. I bet the original author/artist would love these pieces.

i am not participating in the 'eating' of children.

But then, honestus, you are not a predatory prehistoric lizard, so you probably wouldn't.

Do you have the other books in the series, [k]? I'd really like to know how the kid gets along with the other dinosaurs.
