More of my dinosaur and space art can be seen in my DA "Paleo & Sci Illo" gallery:[link]
The title is self-explanatory. That is the late Cretaceous Earth hanging in the backround. Those are sentient Troodontids in the foreground. Given a 65 million year headstart, they are now running the galaxy.
I had originally intended to give each Troonaut a spacesuit of a different color ala "Destination Moon". Once I had colored one suit green I decided to make them all the reassuring color of their native forests. In this colorless environment it would be comforting for the Troodonts to see each other as surrogate trees.
