Dinosaur Comic Concepts by RickRaptor105 Dinosaur Comic Concepts by RickRaptor105
Just some random dinosaur characters. Iīm not sure whether Iīm going to make a webcomic with them or not. Most names are just placeholders till I find a better name.

Manny: A not very bright Mamenchisaurus who often talks with his tail, which he refers to as "Mister X", because it is mysteriously silent...
Comment: As I said, this post on the "Sauropod Vertebra Picture of the Week" Blog [link] inspired me to make a schizophrenic sauropod XD

LOLKOL: An always smiling Kol ghuva with few problems and bad grammar. The only time he is serious is when he complains about his stubby arms.
Comment: While drawing my cartoon dinosaurs I suddenly got the feeling that I should include a dinosaur based on those LOLCATS you find everywhere on the internet. And this alvarezsauridīs name just rhymed so well with LOL.

Mr. A. : A totally badass Anchiornis. Never make this dinosaur angry, youīll regret it.
Comment: I think itīs obvious on which person this character is based off. Come on, itīs a black dinosaur with mohawk-style feathers on his head! How can you not turn it into a dinosaurian Mr. T.? XD I know Anchiornisī true colours were a little bit different, here Iīve got an accurately coloured one if you want one: [link]

Alex: A lone Alectrosaurus. He hates everyone on Earth for no real reason and usually wallows in self-pity. What makes him especially depressive is the fact that his arms are too short to score himself.
Comment: Look, EMO-dino! Alectrosaurus means "unmarried lizard", so I first wanted to make this a dinosaur acting extremely unpleasant to others, which would have been the reason he has no wife, yet. But Alectrosaurus can also be translated as "alone lizard", and then I thought this is the perfect chance to draw probably the first EMO dinosaur on DA!

Marsh: A very serious Othnielia or Othnieliosaurus. He is constantly argueing with the more light-hearted Drinker Cope.
Comment: This dinosaur is obviously named after its discoverer, Othniel Charles Marsh, and the relationship with Cope is based on the originalsī famous "Bone Wars".

Cope: A nearly always drunken Ornithopod of the species Drinker nisti. He often argues with Marsh, though he doesnīt understand most parts of their discussions.
Comment: Come on, the genus name Drinker is way too hilarious to be ignored. Is there a better way to introduce an alcoholic dinosaur? Gotta love his face.

Comment: Iīm not sure about this one... Maybe I took one step too far with this dinosaur. He is supposed to be a Mochlodon, born in Austria, and World War II veteran. I think a dinosaur based on Adolf Hitler may not be the right figure for a comic...

Pleo: This old Poekilopleuron is a World War II veteran and Communist. He often tries to impose others on his ideology with the help of his relative Dabby.
Comment:Not as extreme as an Adolf Hitler dinosaur, but a communist dinosaur might still be a little bit too serious for a comic (but this isnīt supposed to be a comic for little children, either). At first I wanted to make the communist a really small dinosaur like Compsognathus so it has more problems to assert himself, but then I got the World War II idea and chose Poekilopleuron, whose skeleton was destroyed.

Dabby: A young Dubreuillosaurus who tries to help his cousinīs grandfather Pleo spreading his communism ideology over the world, but has absolutely no idea of politics.
Comment: This is what would turn the serious communist idea into something more humorous. The relationship between Dabby and Pleo is a reference to the fact that Dubreuillosaurus was originally assined to the genus Poekilopleuron, but has been renamed in 2006.

Orni: A quarrelsome Ornitholestes who often gets himself into trouble. He has already black eyes and even a broken nose, but he doesnīt seem to care.
Comment: This character is obviously based on the fact that Ornitholestes was once believed to have had a small horn on its nose which was actually a broken nasal bone.

Lurdo: An actually quite patient Lurdusaurus. He is a passionate sumo wrestler and the strongest and heaviest off all characters.
Comment: I already pointed out that Lurdusaurus was a very heavily-built iguanodontid. And what could be a better job for such a ponderous animal than sumo wrestling?

I Pity o Fool for not thinking dinosaurs are Feathered!
Why doesn't the Mochlodon character have a name?
But Kol might be an oviraptorosaur...

If you fix Mr. A, this would make a good comic!

I haven´t read anywhere anything about Kol ghuva being an oviraptorosaur.
See page 13 here: [link]

Ah, well, Kol ghuva is still going to appear as giant Alvarezsaur in one of my comics.

"Hey, ain't dat the same palaeontologist who put my thumb-spike in the same place where which my nose is?" (Or something like that.:D)
