First colored Dino in a LONG time.

I was supposed to be doing a dinosaur coloring book but I'm beginning to think that won't happen. No biggie, after the anthro book I'll do a Dino book, complete with musings and my pet theories.

Hopefully it will piss a lot of people off.

About 3 hours total work on this Dinos are just really fast to do. this guys from merry old England.

Poke him on the snout and watch him charge you!

Looks awesome, I don't think I've seen much of your color work around the net. Or maybe I'm just assuming most of the non-comic stuff was colored by Jess. Also, a dino book sounds great to me. :)

Jess colores the Animal people, I do most of the dinosaurs. She colored most of my first ones and then I started doing the colors. She's still much better than I am and I hate coloring people.

I've always wanted to do one, this one will also be print on demand.

So I was definitely making some false assumptions there, thanks for clearing that up. Both of you do fantastic work, it's always a treat to see something new go up either on here or the DA gallery.

HI EVERYONE, THIS POST IS COMING FROM SKOTTIE YOUNG'S BLOG -



I THINK THIS NEEDS TO BE READ:



"When I became a man I put away childish things, including the desire to be very grown up."


C.S. Lewis said this when people asked him why he wrote books for children. This reminds me to keep in mind the origin of what I love most...drawing. Before I knew what Marvel or D.C. was, before I knew what a comic book, or super hero was, I drew pictures. I love drawing. I can't recall what I liked drawing the most, probably because I drew so much there is no way to remember. I drew all the time, with any tool that created a line on paper.

Amongst the contracts, negotiations, signings, failed projects, good and bad reviews, deadlines, tussles with editors and studio execs., 35 airports a year, the same convention halls over and over, and anything else that goes along with the professional artist label...it is easy for me to forget what I wanted to do this for.

I love drawing.

That's the end of it really. I love it. I love the kid that lives here no matter how many books I sell, or how much money I put in the bank. I need to remind myself to put away the childish "desire to be very grown up." and just put pencil to paper. I never used to need anyone to like what I drew. I didn't know to want it. I just wanted to turn a blank piece of paper into something, anything, just as long as it looked fun. An animal, a world that I have never seen, a twist on the world I have. Amongst all the things that have over shadowed that ideal, I have lost the child.

After hearing this quote, I wrote it down and pinned it on the bulletin board in front of my table. That's why these warm up drawings started happening. I always told myself I didn't have time to draw anything for fun, I had to work. But, like those parents who have kids and need to make time for them no matter what...I am reminding myself to do the same.

PLEASE GO TO SKOTTIE YOUNG'S BLOG AND COMMENT THERE

AND REMIND YOURSELF TO DO THE SAME

THANKX
