Here is the first illustration for my dinosaur book, The Kaligen Experiment: Genesis. It features the apex predator of the series and how big it is compared to an average sized human. When I envisioned this animal, I gave it Tyrannosaurus Rex’s basic physical structure, Spinosaurus’s back sail, the Indominus Rex’s arms and hands, Ceratosaurus’s nose horn, and Allosaurus’s eye ridges. I also gave the animal feathers like many recently discovered dinosaurs, but I included a curved beak like an eagle’s to highlight the animal’s bird heritage. If one were to reverse engineer a chicken into something that resembles a dinosaur, I imagine the end result will look something like this creature. I will be giving this beast a terrifying presence in the book as it stalks the humans across the island.
