Then Vermeer was Devoured by pageboy Then Vermeer was Devoured by pageboy
And Zach said "Let there be robot dinosaurs in our next assignment."

And thus, this abomination was born.

I've never painted or drawn a dinosaur before, so this was interesting.

Gouache. 21.5 x 19 cm.


[Edit 9/12/09] I was so surprised and honored when I found out this had been chosen for a DD! Sorry I can't thank each and every one of you for your comments, but I've enjoyed reading most of them (it will take me a while....) It's really great to see everyone's reactions to the subject matter. I would have never guessed dinosaurs and classical painting to be so popular!

Thank you!

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-09-10
~pageboy quotes "Let there be robot dinosaurs in our next assignment."...and behold--there was. Then Vermeer was Devoured is truly a magnificent homage to one of the greats. ( Suggested by tschudin and Featured by oilsoaked )

Looks a lot like the Argonians in the Elder Scrolls series.

I would totally buy a print of this, have it framed nicely, and send it to my mother.

She would then laugh so freakin' hard, she'd place it in a position of prominence in her living room.

That's how my family rolls.

I wasn't searching for dinosaurs or Vermeer - I just stumbled on this, and ABSO-:w00t:-LY love it!

The colours, everything is spot-on... if Vermeer were able to see it I'm sure he'd be chuffed :D
