Oh my gosh...what is that thing in the sky, please don't be a meteor...

Wow, I must say that the art for this is beautiful. I wasn't expected he dinosaurs to be depicted as sentient and capable of speak. I'm going to head back and read through the backlog so I can learn more. ^^

P.S. I love dinosaurs. Like a lot.

This wasn't a meteor actually, it's the first star of the evening. In the previous page, Monkeypuzzle tells Raspberry he has until first star to leave the valley. And now, his time is up...

P.S. Thank you so much for your kind words. It's always a pleasure to find someone who likes dinosaurs as much as I do.

Beautifully painted evening sky in the bottom row! I also quite like the way you draw the facial/ head structures of the characters. They feel very solid. You've come a long way since the first pages, and not just because the coloring is done digitally. The dinosaurs feel a lot more solidly drawn.

Thank you! It's been a very long journey indeed, almost 8 years now. And of course, like my subject matter, art always evolves. Who knows where any of us will be 8 years from now?

This is really cool. I like the herd being turned into docile sacrificial lambs through the fruit. But I have a question...

What does Poharex eat? Is that in an earlier chapter? I get the feeling that him hunting down his neighbours would be frowned upon...

Anyhoo, neat stuff you've got here!

Thank you for taking an interest in my little world. It brings me tremendous joy. ^_^

What does Poharex eat? Well, meat, obviously. But of course he doesn't hunt down his neighbors- his duty is to protect his fellow dinosaurs, not eat them. He wouldn't be much of a protector otherwise!
The dinosaurs of Mesociam are not identical to the dinosaurs that lived on Earth millions of years ago, though descended from them. They're a bit more organized, and don't eat each other. Any animal that isn't a dinosaur is fair game though.
Previous episodes show Poharex eat fish (#9) and large mammals (#7).

beautiful colours here, and I like your variance of angles as well. I'm going to subscribe to this one!

Thank you very much! You're just in time for the big finale of issue #12. I hope you'll enjoy where the story goes next!

Really like the textures on your figures. Your panels also have a great cinematic perspective to them.

Thanks! Applying the scale texture to each character is a very time-consuming work, but it's how my style evolved and I like it this way. It's always good to know others like it too.

I was a big animation buff growing up, even going as far as to make my own series of animated shorts (which weren't very good, by the way, but I digress). Animated series have always been a bigger influence on my work than other comics, especially the "epic" adventure series of the 90s-early 2000s like Samurai Jack and Batman TAS. A lot of Disney's body of work did too- most notably Dinosaur, the Lion King and Fantasia.
