Jurassic Line and Wash

This week I made a couple of ink drawings of Jurassic animals – the classic T-Rex in a running pose, and a drawing of Dimetrodon, which was a mammal-like reptile from the clade Synapsida.  I used basic shapes initially to get the general mass of each animal right and then refined each shape towards my reference.  Once I had a basic pencil drawing I switched over to my ink pens to finish the drawings properly.

Here are the two ink drawings…



Then I had a go at putting a watercolour wash over the top of my ink.  This was really fun to do…

Here are the final pictures…

  1. I am one of those people who have always loved dinosaurs :). They captivated me in my youth and I still get that thrill when I look at pictures of them or read about them now. I love these! As soon as I saw them I got that little shot of excitement that always accompanies my encountering anything dinosaur-related. Great work, as always. And thank you for bringing a smile to my face this morning!
