Artist's Description

It was meant to be a quick sketch, then suddenly I was colouring and couldn’t stop. Sigh.
Carnotaurus was a big meat eating theropod dinosaur that lived in what is now South America during the Late Cretaceous, about 70 million years ago. It could run fast, had weird little arms and had horns on its head. The flowers are based on Oreocallis, a South American grevillea which would have had similar looking ancestors in the Late Cretaceous. In the background are stylised monkey puzzle trees. The flying things are speculative tiny azhdarchid pterosaurs, and the bugs are just bugs.
