Savage Pellucidar by jerrycarr Savage Pellucidar by jerrycarr
Hey gang, sorry I've been out of touch. Lots of personal stuff to work through for the last couple of months. So, I break this long silence with another piece for an upcoming Panthans cover!

Dian, the Beautiful, on the run from Hoojah, the sly; hoping that her emperor David Innes will soon pop in to slay the wily T-Rex! Dang, but I love me some Edgar Rice Burroughs!

Lots of different media. T-Rex is ballpoint and brushpen. Funky roots are just graphite, and Dian is all brushpen. Colored-up and composited in Photoshop, of course!

You know, DOyle wrote The Lost World, then Burroughs wrote about Pellucidar, which was really Land That Time Forgot 2.0, and then a decade or so later King Kong is made. Hmmm.... At any rate, ever since then, people can dream of playing tag with dinosaurs in distant lands far from civilization. This illustration nicely sums it up, and makes the idea sound really cool. My only quibble is that the tyrannosaur's lower jaw should be more V-shaped, although you have the Jurassic Park-era muscle bulge at the mandible done nicely.

Jeez, I loved those books when I was a kid. "Carson of Venus" was my poison.

I know, right? I loved all the Burroughs stuff. Each of his worlds was a breath of fresh air and fun.

Oh man! I read all these books when I was in grade school. Abner Perry, The Mahars, the Sagoths, the Horibs. I had the "Carson Napier on Venus" series, too. Great stuff! Thanks.

The ERB universe was the greatest! The Pellucidar series was particularly inventive. I've read 'em multiple times since I was like 12. Glad you dig it!
