This is actually a re-do of some art I made YEARS ago. My style has changed and my art sills have improved, so I wanted to recreate this piece. I really love how it turned out. It started with the idea that pigeons looked like birds in suits and looked weird to me without arms, so I wanted to make a pigeon with arms... and so I made a pigeon a Hindu god!
Watercolor, crayon, acrylic paint and prismacolor marker.
So, my best friend since middle school likes raptors. She used to chase me around making raptor noises. Sadly, she says she can't make a raptor noise anymore... but she still loves them. I decided to try my hand at drawing a raptor for her. I've never tried drawing a dinosaur before, and she's quite the expert. I was just going to put him a suit, but then I thought, "Why not put him in a Mr. Rogers sweater?" and thus he was born.
