These two are the greatest of the sauromammalian predators, Troodontotherium atrox and Dipodotigris magnificus. Troodontotherium is probably the first sauromammalian which I created after musing what predatory mammalians could have evolved into if they had had a more dinosaurian build. (See the pic 'Sauromammalians' for more info)

Troodontotherium (='wounding tooth beast') is the largest sauromammalian predator at 12 meters in length. It dwells in southern grasslands and savanna, while the 10 m long Dipodotigris (='two-legged tiger') lives in the northern forests and steppes. Despite their size, they are both active hunters.

You've got an astounding knowledge of anatomy, and... well, I would buy the book only for images like this 2
This concept is so compelling I'm forced to ask, may I take it and adapt the idea to my knowledge? If it wouldn't be that much of a breach in copyright, that is...

:-) Tiina Aumala replies: "General ideas can't be copyrighted. I've done my own fauna of the future after reading Dixon, so I guess you could just as well make your own archosaur-mammals after looking at my art. Just be original."

Oh wow!
I love these creatures.
They remind me of my Pantherapods.
although mine are a little more catlike in the face.

These are however beautiful. 2
Do you by chance have a Deviant art gallery?
I have a club there titled fantastic beasts. all the art posted there is like this.
If you do, we would love to have you as a member. 2

I know! How about dinosaur shaped people!

:-) Tiina Aumala replies: "No. We've got enough human-shaped humans already."

Whats wrong if it isn't too much to ask?
Well in any case I do hope you get well soon.

Here's a link to one of my pantherapods

I love how you mixed mammels and predator dinosaures together like that, and how plausible it seems, It could easily fit into this world. great2

They remind me of andrewsarchus, but al your beasts are incredible, I don't have words for such amazing work.

You should try drawing mammals combined with the reptile like animals that predated the dinosaurs.

This is also Incredible!!!! I had a similar idea for birds, except the birds took on a more mammalian build since they’re already dinosaur like in build. You’re a VERY good artist!

These remind me of some images from "After Man". They look gorgeous and I love the colouration.
