Well, we here at Ressurrex suppose it's a fine time now to announce our newest project: a webcomic! I'm not going to go much into what the comic is about, but it does involve both human and prehistoric animal interaction, and I hope you guys will enjoy it. While we're preparing for our big debut, here's a little taste of what to expect: the cast for the first setting, in Early Cretaceous Argentina.
Left to right: Limaysaurus, Andesaurus, Ekrixinatosaurus, Giganotosaurus (M,F), Bicentenaria, Alnashetri (M,F), Mitchell.
Other than the dinosaurs, what of things like Cronopio, Priosphenodon and Araripesuchus? Aren't they also supposed to have lived at this time, Candeleros Formation? Buitreraptor? In any case it's a lovely image
If I know what it is, I'm betting it'll be up within (PRAYING) 8 days.
Ekrixinatosaurus was no where near that big.
We know. We're taking a touch of artistic liberty on this one.
Well, isn't the upper estimate somewhere near 11m? Even so, it is still oversized.
Yes, but said estimate was based on the absolute size of the skull, ignoring the known postcranial material, not to mention that it also ignored the difference in shape between the skull bones, the original 7 to 8m estimates are more accurate IMO.
Agreed. That's why I said upper estimate. 7 to 8m is definitely the more accurate estimate.
Regardless, the Ekrixinatosaurs in the picture is over sized. No way it is larger than a Giganotosaurus.
Shouldn't the Sauropods neck and tails be a little thicker?? they look a little thin possibly shrink wrapped?
Wow, them models. Like everyone else, I like how you managed to represent the animals of a certain time period (a.k.a no Argentinosaurus=Giganotosaurus) but that Andesaurus looks too small, wasn't it supposed to be close to Argent's size?
Nah, Andesaurus wasn't super big. Dougal Dixon's book said they were 100 ft long but that's not true, the vertebrae are far smaller than those of Argentinosaurus. They were more around 66 feet.
Alright, thank you. 66 feet is still big though not super big, such as other titanosaurs.
More conservative estimates state it was closer to 80-some feet instead of Argentinosaur size. However, the scales represented in this aren't exactly the ones we're going to use in the comic, so don't worry, our Andes will be huge in the story
Alright you have a point. *if humans involved prays for a Prehistoric Park story*
Good to have you back! All of these are from South america! Though where's an argentinosaurus?
Argentinosaurus didn't live in the time frame that this story is set. Also, Argentinosaurus has been overdone anyway, so why not bring another incredibly large but not as recognized dinosaur, Andesaurus, into the frame?
Argentinosaurus and Giganotosaurus were not contemporary, Giganotosaurus being form an earlier period of time.
Cool dinosaurs.. Also nice to see small members in the cast (and the absence of Argentinosaurus xD)
