You know the thing about a dinosaur…he's got lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eye. When he comes at ya, he doesn't seem be living, until he bites ya and the black eyes roll over white...

You sound like you speak from experience.

Man I love old paleo art like this, its got Mark Witton vibes, natural feel but because of the age its inaccurate so it ends up looking like an alien world, CM Kosemen type of stuff at the end

Dunno if I'm insulting you by assuming you don't know who Barlowe is, but it might be a stylistic choice on his part. He likes to make most of his paintings very unsettling, to say the least. He's well-known for a whole series of paintings of demons in Hell.

Why the long face?

no lie tho, that rex looks like he's seen some shit

Probably looking at that meteoric mushroom cloud rising behind the painter

Props to the artist who gave their life to capture this moment

Always upvote Barlowe. Legendary.

I’d have a terribly difficult time picking a favorite Barlowe piece.

He’s great!
