Hi! I just searched in and found this gallery: osmatar.deviantart.com/gallery…
I never heard of it before. Is there some compilation of artist works on the subject?
Thanks!

I just googled it, and the main site appears to have just disappeared unfortunately, along with a lot of the original artworks....the reason I brought it up was because one of the lineages of creatures in Spec were giant, ocean-going platypus relatives that looked a lot like your painting.

Thank you so much for the mention!
That creature was a weird idea of mine, as if I dreamed of it at some point. I may do a better version with reference one day.
It comes from my old child interest for prehistoric creatures and evolution in general.
