This forum is the official fan-run community hub and fansite for David Silva's Beasts of the Mesozoic figure line, based around the appreciation, display, and customization of BoTM figures as well as other dinosaur-themed models.
One thing I really want to do with my Beasts of the Mesozoic 'raptors is to help me illustrate a book I've written. While the raptorians in that story are not from our past but a divergent future, they share more than enough anatomy with their ancestors that a fully poseable action figure 'raptor is going to help a bunch in getting trickier postures right.
I only just got the figures and allergies are sapping my energy (and this probably going to last a few months, alas), but! I did also commission someone else to work on the cover image of the book for me. For reasons of unnecessary paranoia, I'm not going to share the full image(s) here yet, but here are some teasers from various stages of the work:
I am pretty excited about how this is coming along. I'll be touching up the final draft of the image in the coming weeks and am looking forward to unleashing it as a title image once I've finished editing my book. (Although, fair warning, if the above intrigues you, don't hold your breath, this might take as long as Beasts of the Mesozoic did. I am notoriously low on energy lately, and the aforementioned allergy season sadly does not help.)
Figured I'd share the fluffiness with you guys!

pinkgothic: My own avatar image keeps confusing me. I keep thinking "it must be a dinosaur face" just because it's the Beasts of the Mesozoic forum, and apparently the shape is just weird enough that my brain thinks this is plausible, but nope. Bamboozled myself.

pinkgothic: Well, obviously I think so, too, otherwise I wouldn't be using it. XD Just amused at how easily I'm confused. By myself, no less.

pinkgothic: Also! Since this community is fairly low-traffic, do you think it might be worth directing people to the notifications settings in their profile, so they can get emails when something changes?

pinkgothic: I've set almost all notifications to "spam my inbox, please!" and don't regret it yet.
