My submission for Illustration Friday. What do dinosaurs have to do with bicycles? Nothing. I don’t draw nonsensical images often and I want to learn how to draw prehistoric animals…hence the picture you see above. The image above was drawn with an ink brush, and I was looking at some of Bill Watterson’s dinosaurs to get some idea on the inking.
For this picture, I copied other artist’s drawings of t-rexes, and then I later went to the Museum of Natural History to look at and draw the actual skeletons. You can see the “practice sketches” below.
