It's that time of year again. The time of year where I get to pretend I'm an artist for all of a day and submit a piece to ART Evolved's Gallery of Life. For the month September, the theme/time capsule was to be "Pop-Culture". I got really excited about this when they announced the theme back on 01 July. The next thing I knew, it was 31 August and I still hadn't started a submission. I took a childhood dream, a pencil, a piece of paper, and about 30 minutes, and came up with this little ditty. I call it "My Fuzzy Friend".
Me and my fictional subadult male Allosaurus fragilis companion, "Morrison".
I think it came out alright. Some people might not like the "dino-fuzz", but I'm pretty confident that the idea of proto-feathers on this tenaturan is not completely ridiculous. In fact, I threw some
asymmetric secondary feathers on the forearms as well. I think it looks pretty legitimate.
If you are like me and didn't have the time to submit a piece to the time capsule, no need to fear! the ART Evolved crew is always really accommodating when it comes to late submissions (I would know). The gallery should be up soon, so be sure to check out the rest of the submissions at the Pop-Culture Gallery, and of course, ART Evolved: Life's Time Capsule in general.
