Speculative biology is simultaneously a science and form of art in which one speculates on the possibilities of life and evolution. What could the world look like if dinosaurs had never gone extinct? What could alien lifeforms look like? What kinds of plants and animals might exist in the far future? These questions and more are tackled by speculative biologists, and the Speculative Evolution welcomes all relevant ideas, inquiries, and world-building projects alike. With a member base comprising users from across the world, our community is the largest and longest-running place of gathering for speculative biologists on the web.

While unregistered users are able to browse the forum on a basic level, registering an account provides additional forum access not visible to guests as well as the ability to join in discussions and contribute yourself! Registration is free and instantaneous.

That's one pissed of Psittacosaurus. And the mushroom looks like it could be an octopus in disguise.

Well, actually, the Psittacosaurus's mouth is only open because I couldn't get it looking right while closed. :P

Excellent work, I do have to say
Projects and concepts that I have stewing around
Extended Pleistocene- An alternate future where man died out, and the megafauna would continue to thrive (may or may not include a bit about certain future sapients)
Inverted World- An alternate timeline where an asteroid hit during the Barremian, causing an extinction event before the Maastrichtian. Dinosaurs, pterosaurs, and notosuchians make it to the present, along with a host of other animals.
Badania- Alien planet that has life at a devonian stage of development, except it exists in the present day.
Ido- Alien world where hoppers (derived flightless ballonts) and mouthpart-legged beasts are prevalent.
Leto- Life on a moon orbiting a gas giant with an erratic orbit; experiences extremes of hot and cold.
The Park- ???
Deeper Impact- a world where the K-Pg extinction wipes out crocodilians, mammals, and birds; squamates, choristoderes, and turtles inherit the earth.
World of Equal Opportunity- alternate history where denisovans come across Beringia and interact with native fauna. Much of the Pleistocene fauna survives, and the modern humans that end up crossing into North America do not overhunt the existing animals. 10,000 years later, civilizations exist that are on par with European and Asian societies.
The Ditch- Nothing is what if seems..

I told myself I wasn't going to make any Dromaeosaurs... :P Look how that turned out!

This was actually made so I could suggest the appearance for someone's suggestion of a Deinonychus for a game. :P

A speedpaint of Omeisaurus in the morning. :P I did this in about a half hour, so the proportions are probably way off.

This is really made since this is the only of my target species I didn't draw.

Finally, something not from Darcia! :P

This one isn't my favorite, but I don't think it turned out too badly, either. The mane came out well and the body is nice. The head is just a bit blurry, though that is almost certainly because of the image size.

The size chart has also been updated to include the Pachy. :)

The main issue I see that makes it look a little off is a shaded body/skin but no shading used in the mane. Several tufts of feathering below the chin also seem to be floating unattached to the flesh.

No, it actually looked the same without the fluff. :P If anything, the fluff is an improvement.

The mane actually is shaded, but most of it is covered up because I later went in and added white and orange highlights.

Those tufts are supposed to be attached to the chin. :P

Okay but you didn't then shade the orange which is why it looks odd to me.

(several are still floating in the air though :P )
