Parting Shot: Unusually Realistic Dinosaurs Dressed as The Avengers
A creature designer who worked on Star Wars: Episode I and illustrated The Katurran Odyssey, Terryl Whitlatch was also once a student of zoology, a knowledge base that she recently put to valuable use by drawing some unusually realistic-looking pictures of the Avengers dressed as dinosaurs. As she explained:
It was fun deciding what dinosaurs should be what characters. I ended up with an Ankylosaur as Iron Man (a no-brainer, as this animal is naturally armored), a Parasaurolophus as Captain America, just because I thought with that crest it would look really funny, a Triceratops as Thor, especially since when it grows up it is actually a Torosaurus, hence “Thor”-osaurus, and a T-rex as the Hulk so I could give it really muscularly odd little arms. It’s a breath of fresh air to do fan art, and any excuse to draw dinosaurs is a good one!
