Must go faster - Jurassic Pixels by Gardow
Must go faster - Jurassic Pixels
Yay more Jurassic Park meets Dino Run!

I had a lot of fun with this one. I had already done a T. rex before, but not the JP box face. It may not be accurate, but I can't help but love the design. The little thick stripes matter a lot more than you'd think...
At first the T. rex was much greener, but them I remembered all dinosaurs on the island were female, and the green T. rex was the male from Lost World. I also tried to show a storm brewing in the distance.
I think this may be the first car I've ever made pixel art of. The young me would be proud.

I also updated the first piece to inlcude the Jurassic Pixels logo.

So I've been using the Dino Run pieces I've made lately as a cycle of wallpapers, and it reminded me of when I used to have a cycle of Jurassic Park wallpapers. Then a little voice in my head went "why not both?", so expect to see more of these. Maybe even some Dinotopia stuff.

I decided the first of these should be the first time you see a dinosaur in the movie. Brachiosaurus may not have been the all-time biggest of its kind, but JP certainly made us feel like it was. The trees are a lot fuller than in the scene, but I don't want to trim them down.

Ever since I started these Dino Run pieces I've been warming up to do this one. Ninja Sex Party is one of my favourite bands, and I just love the song Dinosaur Laser Fight. How could I not do this?
I based the dinosaurs sharks robots and aliens on the ones that appear in the video. Even the "Welcome to Space" sign makes an appearance! I'd also like to note that Saturn took longer to recreate than I thought, but in the end it was worth it.

They seem to be having trouble aiming though... Only the robot can maneuver  in space after all.

This started as some vent art of two allosaurs teaming up on a stego. I ended up turning it into a whole different scene. You see the Ceratosaurus knows it's unwise to challenge the big Allosaurus for his not-even-dead-yet kill. But instinctively it doesn't have a choice, it has to defend its nest.

People have been asking me if the red dactyl is on fire. The game is full of these tiny red dactyls that knock you back, I imagined this bigger jurassic pterosaur would be ancestral to it.

Epidexipteryx, there's a dinosaur name that took me more than a second to commit to memmory. I really like it, a small treeclimbing dinosaur. I gave it camouflage covering to fit the red trees. I really like the red trees.

I gave the dino run raptors darker snouts to set them apart from actual raptors. In this piece they serve as small dryosaurs.

Some one on Dino Run suggested a deep sea piece with ichtyosaurs and I fell in love with the idea. At first I wasn't going to put in any raptors, but I decided to give them each a hat that would serve them underwater.
The pirate raptor has no need for any fancy breathing device, for he is a pirate, yarrg! Video game logic yo.

First up, Liopleurodon. That episode of Walking with Dinosaurs really earned him a spot in the great book of badasses for me as a kid. There was no way he was not getting into this piece.
I never cared for 'predator x', the name is just too vague. A proper badass needs a proper badass name.

The ichtyosaurs serve as the parasaurolophuses of the scene. I liked the idea of having the raptors 'surf' on their backs holding onto their dorsal fin. In the same vein, the ammonites and sharks are like the dactyls of the scene. This is why there's 'steam' coming off of the sharks. The blood trails are just for my own fun.

In the background you'll see a generic mosasaur and plesiosaur fishing. I really liked plesiosaurs as a kid, they were the carnivorous sauropodomorphs of the sea. I made sure to get the mosasaur tail right, I remembered reading an article about it not too long ago.

I made the background recycling elements of a Dino Run cave entrance, and even the little race hub on the bottom (albeit stretched out a lot), to give it a bit of a legit feel. Recycling level elements works well for the game, I figure it would work for an underwater level. Remember when those were mandatory?

In the end I really like this one. I'm using it as a wallpaper.
