Questri - Janbiya and Nopeus by Kairu-Hakubi Questri - Janbiya and Nopeus by Kairu-Hakubi
I knew I wanted more dinosaurs in here, but the raptor and t-rex thing had been done and I didn't really want a struthioid, so it finally occurred to me to mix a triceratops with a roadrunner.. then I modified that so it had some pachycephalosaur with an ankylusaur tail, and fudged the head all up so it'd be cute and more chameleonlike, with a parrotfish beak. Then I thought I should give it some stripes and/or maybe some toadlike skin, but my chum Earthfield reccommended something more like desert-plane camo, so this cool tiger's-eye scheme came out. I really dig it.
I don't know much about this Janbiya guy except he definitely lives in a desert and rides around on Nopeus and they go fast.

Idea: What about mixing a sauropod with a deer and a horse? A sauropod with a lean, lanky build, an upright brachiosaur neck and a long thin tail, along with a single blunt hoof-like claw on each foot. For extra flair, it could have a ruff of fur down its spine and tail and Chinese dragon antlers. The rider could be a tall, willowy girl of fantasy-Asian descent, very shy and reclusive and using a telescoping quarterstaff a la the Predator as a weapon.

I totally thought about that, but I couldn't figure out a way to make it seem fast enough. I've seen a lot of quadruped dinosaur constructions with just tiny tiny front legs and I wonder how they could ever gallop. Most likely just walking slowly or rearing up onto hind legs if it was time for speed.  So really if I made it lanky it would just be a gallimimus or something. Which isn't bad, but a little redundant.
Thanks for sharing the idea though! More of those is always great.

I meant more like an antelope or a gazelle, or the running sauropods of Dougal Dixon. Just taking the exist body plan and streeeetching it out.
