I have been working on a few smaller projects lately to try different subject matter and to get better in general, so in that experimentation I came up with this little guy:



The pic is a little muddy, sorry about that, but I think you can see most of the details, the colors are a little more vibrant in real life.

Here are some process pics, because I love to see the stages of progress! It's cool to look back it see how it transformed from a sketch to a fully colored illustration.

Thank you so much for all the compliments! It means a lot to me that you all would take the time to look at my art! A couple people asked what I used to color it. I used watercolors, first I sketched the dinosaur and then I put down a basic wash layer and then I used washes to shade and highlight.
