tail must be empty inside, otherwise its a bit too massive

The thicker the base the better they are at running.

Evolution always goes for maximum efficiency at minimum cost, massive tail does not help, its hindering balance. Look at our raptors for example, and not that silly velociraptor/deinonychus Jurrasic Park served us.

Le Deinonychus avait une queue énorme rigide à la base articulée qui lui donnait une capacité rarissime dans le monde animal: prendre un virage à 90° sans ralentire.
Sur cette image, les Cruentulodons en semblent dotés ce qui indique qu'il serait très évolués.

As a professional palaeontologist, this is the first time I've ever commented on anyone's art on DA, but I have to say, your aliens are plausible, biologically intriguing and simply spectacular! Keep it up please!

The hind legs are pretty interesting for the smaller creatures. Kind of like cricket/grasshopper legs! Well done!

Very cool designs, what sources did you used to create them? I'm guessing Ostrich for the big ones and frogs from the little, but what were the other inspirations?

For those bigger guys, I'd probably say rather than an Ostrich, a Titanis Walleri. Looking at head positioning and all, I'd probably go with the big terror bird. ^-^

This is really interesting! I love the composition itself, the movement, etc; but the creature design is amazing.

I really like how the raptor creature's hind legs appear to be more like our forearms, with shoulders.
Really cool. (:

This looks like the cratuer I commented on just a bit ago.  Now it seems very bird like how you have it moving, or just like what we think of a raptor as you called it in the other drawing.  I really like this, it shows these critters in there habitat.  Now seeing what they hunt, the eyes on there lower jaw seems like a good advantage, and it looks like you are aware they would need to tilt there head from the looks of it.

Pure Awesomnes! I really love all of your creature designs, they are so unique.

But I just have to ask if their is a background story why some of your creatures have 4 limbs and others 6? Or was it just a design decision?
