And, by and large, all horses.
The Dawn Horse by Tephra76

For a long time, I've thought wild horses were some of the coolest animals on the planet, but it's the dawn horse that's sealed the deal for me.

laelaps.files.wordpress.com/20…

It's exactly what it sounds like. An ancient, tiny horse no bigger than a beagle, if not the earliest creature recognizable as some kind of horse. It didn't even have hooves or a mane (well, maybe, but barely). Roll the clock further back, make this creature any smaller, change its shape a bit more, and we would classify it as a rodent or something.

www.bookdrum.com/images/books/…
www.50birds.com/animals/images…
www.barking-moonbat.com/images…

So how did the dawn horse pave the way for much larger, more modern horses to be? It's a concept as simple as there is, and as old as life itself. CHANGE OR DIE.

See, back when the dawn horse was a thing, it had to deal with monsters like this. www.beholdthedestroyer.com/blo… Not JUST that, but seriously... creatures like the terror bird made such short work of dem lil' horsies, it's not even funny. www.wired.com/images_blogs/wir… They'd be swallowed up like an earthworm.

So, to escape the doom of forever being a prey animal and eventually being eaten to extinction by the cruel beasts of the world, the Dawn Horse and its descendants bred larger, longer-legged, faster babies. On and on and on, until they were fast enough to escape the fastest predators, and too big for creatures like the terror bird to swallow. Heck, a food source like that disappearing may've played some small part in the extinction of some of those larger animals.

And this, to me, is probably the greatest success story of any life form since the last extinction event. To think that there was such potential in a creature, such a darling, pitiable thing, that it could bounce back from the bottom of the food chain and accomplish so much, to become one of the mightiest, most beautiful creatures alive today, it just... it almost makes me tear up, really. I can't help wondering what other creature may have that same potential, what new amazing animal could come about years and years from now. It's part of why I'm so into future biology, speculative evolution an' all that stuff as of late. How could anyone NOT find such a creature inspiring?

So yeah... probably the first mildly interesting journal I've written in months, geez....

Shadow of The Devilman- 54- Noir's habit (clean) by NickinAmerica
Shadow of The Devilman- 54- Noir's habit (clean)
...sorta.


So.... Noir eats the remains of demons and people who have been possessed by them.

I'd say that puts her on the verge of becoming a demon, herself.

Shadow of The Devilman- 53- A day out by NickinAmerica
Shadow of The Devilman- 53- A day out
And now, we get a glimpse of what that cliche montage bit I decided to leave out of the first book might've been like. And so here it is... My, how things change.

Almost put a "Ghost of Mastubara," on the blank space on Miki's shirt. Heh.

This scene was a bit of a toughie, but I managed to wrap it up in a day, nice and clean.

Oh, look! It's Violence Jack!

You guys can imagine what Miki is referring to, or insert your own similar moments from your life in there. I wanted to leave it open for everybody who has a little sibling or cousin like that.

...Come to think of it, Tare's had more name drops in this series than actual appearances. Huh. I'll have to fix that in upcoming scenes.

>shrugs<

That's it for today. The next scene to come is going to be a doozy.

Transformers- Beast Wars Future- Page ??? by NickinAmerica
Transformers- Beast Wars Future- Page ???
I didn't have time to draw any Devilman pages yesterday, so I dug up some... experimental pages I'd drawn a month of so ago, of what I imagined a "Beast Wars Future," or alternatively titled "Future Beast Wars" comic might be like.

So yeah, there's a thing. I can't say I'll go any further with this (It's back to more Devilman pages, tomorrow), but it's something. It could just end up like that "presentation" I uploaded a coupla' years ago of a new Mega Man Zero comic that never went anywhere.

Still, here's a glimpse of what you could expect a Beast Wars Future Comic to look like. Here, we have Scamper and Raboon scavenging for equipment and resources.

That's it for today.

Uh, Noir, you're kind of giving us mixed signals, here...

Eh, we'll find out what she's up to, later.


That's it for today.
