Ink, watercolor, and Photoshop words.
So... I watched a certain science fiction series that promised that (A) it was going to avoid making paleo-geeks like myself cry and (B) wasn't just going to be "'Lost' Meets 'Avatar' - But They're in the Cretaceous!"
A few minutes after watching the show, I drew this.
You can tell exactly at what moment they totally lost me, can't you? (Should note that with regards to the text, I am somewhat indebted to this piece
and this piece
Important Addendums: First off, oh my God, I'm Internet
! If you want to share this, it's cool, just give me credit please
, okay? Wouldn't you want people to know you were responsible if it was your potential breakout hit?
Second off, before anyone comments on how it isn't really
the Cretaceous Period and how it's more about the human characters and how I should, to borrow a phrase, really just relax: The sad fact is that more people are going to watch Braga's bulletproof gorilla suit Oviraptor-things tear up tanks with their tail-blades and assume that what they're seeing is the Bakker's-honest truth than will ever pick up a book, visit a museum, or listen to a teacher or a scientist. Think about how many people are still hung up on feathered maniraptors because of "Jurassic Park". And you should read my full review of the pilot
, since I go on at length about how the humans all suck.
Third off, looks like "Terra Nova" has faded far enough into obscurity that some peeps are sharing this -with credit, thank you- as a criticism of ridiculously overpowered Original Character Do Not Steals in general. I... I am okay with this.
