Nice I like it.

I see three fingers on that dino... which means its not a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Thanks! Aren't purple worms great? The classic fantasy monsters always stand the test of time...

I especially like the flared out mouth appendages...really makes him look like he's ready to eat that dino...btw, how did you get into working for Paizo? Did they seek you out or was it through submissions? Great stuff...maybe we'll see you in some WOTC publications in the future too!

Thanks very kindly. I can't really remember how I hooked up with Paizo, but I just keep trying to put my work out there with submissions and forums like this and others as much as possible. Working for WotC would certainly be fun!

If the that theropod's a T-rex, then how come it has 3 fingers? T-rex had 2. Just pointin' out.

Other than that, nice work.

Funny! I guess none of us caught that. Two fingers and three toes... interesting.

I will remember that in he future. I guess this one is a mutant. :)

Yeah, either that, or it's a Giganotosaurus. It looks like it to me. Also, what's with the webbing 'tween the fingers & toes? Not like this thing's made for swimmin'.

Well I have webbed toes and I don't swim at all. :)

The bit you think is webbing on the fingers is a part of the plates on the worm. The extra skin on the toes just made sense to me and made the foot look flat to the ground, which is what I was after.

Coulda fooled me. Wait a sec- you have webbed toes? You don't mean genetically, do ya?

Yep. Two on each foot. They're really more conjoined than webbed. Dad was the same way. :)

No way. That a bad thing, I fear?

Noooooo. Not at all. Barely anyone notices unless I point it out. And it certainly doesn't affect how I walk. The only downside is that it, in fact, does not make me a better swimmer, and about 80% of the people who learn these details about me do in fact ask.
