Dinosaurs from this week

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

 

A couple Dinosaurs from this week. @Bobby Rico motivated me to get back into watercolors/ painting again and unfortunately the results are not what I would like. The watercolor Aucasaurus sports multiple mistakes and errors, one being the lack of realism in the overall painting. The predators mottled coloring also caused problems as I strove for a dappled sort of camouflage. Its obviously time to get back to painting. The other dinosaur, Torvorsaurus, was drawn in pencil as a perspective exercise. While the piece lacks detail, the movement in the Torvosaurus creates a sense of excitement that adds to the overall drawing. The jaw in mid-roar was extremely difficult but it seems to have turned out well. I liked it better then the watercolor because of the watercolor's overall shoddiness.

 

Thanks for looking

I tend to agree. 

I like both, but the pencil sketch is the better of the two. :)

Very nice!

I also prefer the pencil.

But combine a dynamic perspective like that with a subtle colouring in watercolor and maybe a fine scale texture and you have a real winner!

You can also use the scanned versions to experiment, then you don´t have to alter your originals.

 Very nice! Even your "bad" painting is better than my best. :dinothumb:
