The latest illustration for The Kaligen Experiment has been completed. It is a fictional species of small ornithopod similar to Dryosaurus or Othnielia. While it has the same body plan as Dryosaurus, it has a pair of fang-like tusks in its upper jaw, which gives it a vampire-like appearance. I got the idea from Heterodontosaurus, which has teeth that resembled canine fangs. I also drew inspiration for the tusks from the real life vampire deer. To highlight this creature’s bird heritage, I wanted it to be more heavily feathered than normal. The name of this animal translates as “Hickory Lizard”.
