Question: What were Phobotyrannus, Brontoceratops, and Sauroceratops like in the old Speculative Dinosaur Project? I can't find any surviving information about them.

I think those were all extinct species. Sauroceratops was some kind of a long-necked protoceratopsid thing, Brontoceratops may have been just an immensely large Eocene chasmosaurine, and Phobotyrannus one of the last true tyrannosaurines.

Well, besides them being extinct.

i'm just here to tell you that i'm doing both colorisation and fan-art of your speculative work, is that ok by you?

Fan art is great, colorisation is cool too. What I'm a bit on the fence on though is appropriating someone else's illustrations to use them for your own work, especially when you don't give credit directly to the original creator. At the very least you should mention how much of your piece is borrowed and who specifically did that original work. For example if you use a sketch made by Dan, say "Original pencil sketch by Daniel Bensen". If you can link to the original, that would be polite as well, though probably not striclty required.

However, I urge you to do your own art for your novel creatures. Unless I'm mistaken (and this is unclear because you don't clearly mention when you are using someone else's art) you have more than enough skill for it, and by drawing your own art you get to hone your skills and progress as an artist. Others will also be able to appreciate your work better when they know you did it all by yourself rather than taking someone else's work and modifying it.

right i'll fix that, i'll make sure you get proper credit, sorry this was really just meant as fan-art/update of your wonderful work,

p.s- it is only the Grassbag, the Gargant, the pseudo-hyrax, the "highland shanter" and the "goat grouse" that i just added colour to, the rest, I drew myself whilst (even if the creatures themselves are not original)

plus this was meant as a combination of  the spec world and dougal dixon world with some extra creatures by me to get an idea of what that world would be like considering the updates recently.

I'm so sorry, if it is necessary, I'll get rid of them.... :(

Hello, my name is Destin Bogart, I am a student at Pueblo West High School, Colorado. I would like to ask your permission to use some of your images (Fully crediting you of course) on my non-profit tumblr page for my school club entitled; The Expeditioner's Discovery Guild: Nova Files. In which we take a look at a specific animal or concept and write a report about with which we then upload it to our blog, upload some pictures, then make a video of virtually the same thing, using only public domain images to our Youtube channel, Here is a link to our tumblr for you.

And we have yet to start anything on our youtube channel but will be doing so shortly. Thank you for thinking about this, and any answer is fine with us. Thank you.

Which images are you interested in using? I'm probably going to say yes, but I do want to make sure before making a blanket statement.

Only prehistoric animals, if we need to use them, and when we get around to writing about the animals in question.
