Of Paintings and Other Things
Been working on art for a project at The Dragon's Tales blog called "The XenoPermian," an imagined geological epoch that operates under the assumption the Siberian Traps never had their million-year-long eruption, and as a result, the Permian extinction never happened.
During the Permian era, our planet was dominated by our long-gone ancestors, the reptile-like protomammals - Therapsida. And most dominant among those was undoubtedly the dicynodonts, by force of sheer numbers. As a result, many (but by no means all) of the critters that populate this strange non-time can draw their lineage from these humble beginnings.
Enter the walrodont.
