Another Allosaur by Himmapaan Another Allosaur by Himmapaan
Watercolour on Fabiano hot-pressed, 85 x 115mm.

The full view is about three times larger than the original (which, I'm obliged to say, looks better than the scan). Here is a detail photographed with a penny.

In case there are those asking whether I draw/paint anything else besides dinosaurs these days, the answer is: yes, naturally. ;)

Just out of curiosity, do you erase your pencil sketch after you've inked and before you start adding the watercolors or do you leave it to become an integral part of the artwork?

This is an outstanding drawing of one of the most outstanding Theropod Dinosaurs.

I would feel truly honored if you would allow me to use this in a video I am making about the Dinosaurs who were the Apex Predators of their reign. Its a non-profit slide show montage video, made for fun and advent viewing to everyone. If no, I will respect that. If yes however, then I will guarantee that your name will be in the credits and there will be a link back to your DA page in the description box so that everyone can know that it is work. What do you think?

Yes, of course. Thank you so much for your interest, and I very much appreciate your asking first.

If you wouldn't mind, may I ask you to include my Wordpress blog in the credits also, please? I'm gradually moving away from dA and very rarely use it now.

Video is already done and original has been deleted, but I can use your link in the description instead of your DA Page. In the mean time

Even with the picture with the penny, it boggles my mind that you work in such fine detail. It's amazing.

He's such a handsome guy, albeit a little grumpy looking. ;) I love the colors and the sense of power he gives off.

And do you colour it in then paint it with water, or do you use paints? I'm trying to do watercolour paintings with the pencils but it is always messy and doesn't turn out right
