It's only hackneyed old T. rex, I'm afraid; but as it's been years since I've drawn any dinosaurs, it seemed sensible to me to start back with something 'easy'. I tried to be resolute in drawing it with its mouth closed, but I gave in eventually. Incidentally, the roaring head, as the last to be drawn, is probably my own favourite of the studies because I'd loosened up much more by then. The others were drawn in a state of slight nervous tension.

Its body could do with being slightly larger and longer. It was a tricky bit of foreshortening which I didn't quite manage convincingly. The teeth are also inaccurate: there are too many. I entirely neglected to count them as I was drawing, and by the time I'd realised, it was too late. Most important of all: it is lacking jaw muscle. Here's hoping future attempts will be better.

Thank you so much for your kind comment. This still has many inaccuracies as it was the first dinosaur piece I'd drawn since returning to the genre after many years.

Ohhh I see, and Indeed it has too many teeth, but hey an honest "mistake". For the part about him/her being larger mmmm that one the focus should be the tail itself more than the body(in most specimens the tail is about 2/3 of the body of the animal), but besides that one can say we are looking at a young adult Rex, and thus is not fully grown yet and or that we are looking at a female and that's why the body is "thinner". And for the jaw muscles yeah, but funny how I didn't noticed it before lol. But still is a beautiful drawing of a beautiful creature that once was the perfect killing machine of its time. By the way out of curiosity, how do you differentiate a female from a male?

Your dinosaur art in particular has always inspired me. The details in the skin - the veins, the wrinkles, the patterns - are so vivid and lifelike. I recently did a picture with ink inspired by that, trying to achieve that level of detail and care in one of my own drawings (though departing from realism a bit). My art is here if you want to take a look! [link]

In the meantime, I just wanted to thank you again for putting your artwork out there. It is really wonderful to get to have the opportunity to watch artists like yourself produce the great things you do!

My first thought on seeing this: "He looks strangely... harmless."

^^; That might not have been what you intended. I'm sorry. But this creature does make me smile more than recoil in fear. It's a beautiful drawing, and the amount of detail in the hide is astonishing. But the dinosaur looks strangely... comical. Those little deep-set eyes surrounded with folds of skin, those ridiculously small arms, that jagged mouth... And there is something downright silly about his expression.

All in all, I think he's adorable. ^^;

How on earth has it taken me so long to see this???? *wails* And I haven't spoken to you in ages!" :crying: Hope you've been well! :hug:

Anyway, 'tis absolutely lovely. :love: And I'm more than ashamed to admit my knowledge of saurians has dwindled incredibly over the years. :ashamed:

I love the looser personality in the lines of that top right sketch, too. :D

Btw, did you receive a note on blogger? I'm just curious, as it seems I sent a couple of them to different people and no one has said anything to me :-/
Anyways, hope all is well over there :hug:

No, I'm afraid I didn't receive a note. :( I don't yet have a blogger account, but should it have arrived to my email or something, since I'm using my Livejournal account to follow your blog?

It seems the notes I sent never reached their destinations, plus, the fact that you don't use blogger is an obstacle for them to arrive :XD: I don't think they'd go to your inbox, though, but no biggie, they were just to see if I could send notes that way.

Btw, it's been ages since I last spoke to you. Hope you are well and with lots of projects :)

How strange that not one got to their recipients! Not even the others who were on Blogger themselves?

It has been ages and I hope you are well too! I'm just finishing off the very last piece for the one book I'd been working on (so pathetic :roll: :XD:).

Yes, not even the Blogger users :/ Strange, but I guess I didn't do something right when sending them...

Thankfully, I'm well -and I'm glad to know you're well and busy too :D -
I'm sure your project will soon be another bestseller :nod: so I understand you've been deep in it ;)

I just read your note and will get back to you soon :hug: I really appreciate it: not only that you took the time to write them, but also the content of it. Thank you :blushes: :happycry:

I think the one up right is a bit to friendly looking.
But what are you expecting? This is great work and no one will count the teeth and tell you the correct number. No one would have realized .

And those eye, so cold and old and 'I will eat you, now!' o.o

Growing up I've often enjoyed dinosaur drawings (still do!). The creativity and imagination it takes to come up with what prehistoric creatures looked like, rather most likely looked like, based on fossils is admirable.
Well done!
