There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

The Allocene Collection

A few years ago, I had started an entirely new thread relating to a speculative biology project called the "Allocene Project". The Allocene mostly deals with animals in a time period long after human habitation, with various theories as to which animal groups would be dominant. During the drawing of the attachments shown below, I was thinking that giant rodents and amphibians would soon take over after the human extinction. 

Rodents, because they can easily breed rapidly under more strict conditions and are extremely adaptable. With an increase in global warming, some regions would be absolutely uninhabitable (many parts of the equator, grasslands, flats) and the mainland US, China, Argentina, Australia, and Europe would be very habitable with excess vegetation. With that comes prey, and with excess prey comes more adaptable and larger rodents. As vegetation of this sort becomes widespread, selection pressures would gradually shift to prefer large, predatory rodents capable of ambush predatory behavior and heavy protections (fur, longer claws, etc...). Some of these are tons in weight.

Amphibians, because the remaining habitable places are going to experience a lot more rain and flooding than usual. Mosses and flora blooms would occur which would vastly increase the prey base in pluvial areas which would increase the amount of amphibian presence in the area. Of course, this means an increase an amphibian predators and larger ones too. Same situation as the giant rodents, some are tons in weight.

Rodents:

   

   

   

Amphibians:

   

   

   

   

In the Allocene, it is a predator's market!

@sanjay :

You're really too kind with me, I don't deserve your praise. This is just a virtual work only existing in the computer memory. Procreate is a software which works as Photoshop does, with layers, alpha lock, creeping mask and full of gadgets and other processes I'm only making out. And between you and me I'm not patient. For me a draw is make with one go. With Procreate I have to proceed step by step, it's really a tiered execution... I manage to make the lion as I would make it on a piece of paper in 2 mimutes but here I have to use a layer to sketch its form, an other layer for a "washing appearance", a third layer for the hairs of the mane and so on. I'm really not used to proceed so, I really have to be patient. And as concerns the background, I'm really navigating through the fog...

But I hope to progress little by little, gradually. If later, it could be worth something, I will let you know.

But really, thank you a lot !
