Extinction Event for David
This was a comic I worked on in 2002 I think. Not my best work. But a more typical comic book style. The story was about sentient Dromeosaurs that saw the end coming (giant meteor) and built cryofreezer things for them and their civilization. They were supposed to unfreeze after a few hundred years but the machine took some damage and didn't unfreeze until a small earthquake 'fixed' the problem. I don't really remember much more, I had some problem with the story and the science, which were changed for the proposal but the writer decided to put them back in. It might have been cool, but once again they had to focus on the people;)
I had to bitch at the colorists after that green Dromeosaur thing on cover 2. They couldn't pull off anything but green and brown so no cool colors. Just remember I had to draw 22 pages of this stuff on a short amount of time so be gentile;)
Brett is a comic book artist currently working on nothing he can mention, damn it! He also draws dinosaurs! He likes to talk about science and evolution if you don't want to here about that stuff, tuff cookies;)
If you would like to use my images on your web site, please e-mail me. (brettbooth at gmail dot com) I usually grant permission for non-commercial uses but I do require that you provide a link back to me. If you are a scientist, or represent a museum or educational institution, one time print use of dinosaur images is very low cost and sometimes free, please inquire.
I am happy to draw original paleo artwork for papers, articles and the like. I'm happy to do these for very reasonable fee's and in some cases I'll even wave that. So feel free to ask.
I will no longer doing comic/anthro character commissions. See other blog.
