In the Late Triassic, a pair of small Coelophysis cower in the shadows as a massive Postosuchus splashes through a field of wetland ferns. This is a sketch that I may mess with later.
What's in the nickname?
I really like the scene and the light effects that you did. Also, as commenters before me have said, it indeed reminds me of one of Douglas Henderson's works. Very well done!
It has something Henderson-ish
Hooray for bringing back the term "crimson croc"!
I think it's a Bakkerism, right? I've always liked it.
AFAIK, yes. I read it first in The Dinosaur Heresies, and never again anywhere else. It would probably still be as good a colloquial name for terrestrial high-ish metabolic rate pseudosuchians as any, if there actually _were_ alternatives to it.
I don't think anybody but Bakker was ever interested in coining colloquial names, which is a shame, because the sheer weirdness of prehistoric animals really lends itself to it. Plus, it's useful to have non-scientific names for big animal families where the taxonomy is still screwy.
Wow! Amazing details with the foliage and grass!
