Birthday Art Challenge 2015: Super-Dinos!

The Short Story: Draw dinosaurs as superheroes!

The Long Story: There’s no getting away from the fact that I’m a “grown-up” - except by putting scare quotes around it and making light of the fact, of course. For this reason I have most of the things that I want, and because of this and the fact that I’m no fan of cards, for my last 5 birthdays I've asked people to draw me things as a birthday present. 

So: If (see end note) you’re the sort of person who:

might send me a card and you think this is a nice idea, or 
wouldn’t send me a card but this sounds like fun, or 
who doesn’t know me but likes to draw things…

… then draw a picture! It’s fun for you and enjoyable for me (and everyone else), and super cheap. I've set a theme each year, and this year the theme is:

Super-Dinos

Dinosaurs with super-powers and action-hero dinosaurs! Super-villainous Ceratopsians! Stegosaurs with laser-vision! The uncanny T-ReX-men! Ankylosaurs that can jump small buildings in a single bound! An ornithomimus in a string vest who's getting too old for this shit! Thorlociraptor!

(As before, drawings on previous themes - or indeed any cool theme - are also appreciated, so dancing robots, dinosaurs, squid drinking pan-galactic gargleblastsers, old-aged space whale, ants doing the conga, and bonus points for a Kryptonian Robot Squid with a Genuine People Personality or a similar trick-shot).

For inspiration here are the last 5 challenges (links below)

END NOTE: The "if" up there is emphasised exactly because I'm usually pretty happy on my birthday anyway, so if you can read this you should not feel obliged in any way - just if you feel like it and think you'd enjoy drawing something dinosaur-related, I'd be delighted to see the results! Don't feel that artistic skill is necessary - I'm terrible at drawing myself, and also don't feel you need to know me: I've had some excellent pictures from people I've never met.
