Sprite Jam: Extinct species
« on: 16 Nov 2018, 20:54 »
Our planet is full of exciting fossils from species long gone, but now you can help bring them to life again in sprite form!
There is plenty of exciting fauna to chose from, ranging from creatures as different as the wingless 3 meter tall Moa birds to Eohippus,
an ancestor to the horse no larger than a terrier, and Synthetoceras, an antelope-like creatures with a Y-shaped horn growing out of their noses,
and plenty of other creatures even weirder, all which are now gone but hopefully not forgotten.


Guidelines:
- No size, palette or style limitations.
- It must depict a real creature and feature the name of the species in the description.
- No dinosaurs. I don't want all entries to be different versions of T-rex. (roll)

Deadline:
1st December

Here's a Phorusrhacos or terror bird. Although it looks a little bit like a T-Rex with feathers, it's NO dinosaur. (Just to follow the guidelines.;))




And here's an original sized small version of it.
