Hope you're all great!
UPDATE: I've just finished inking my dinos... as said before, I've drawn them to match the style of the book, so they might not look like you imagine them
also, the size is the one they have on the page, so the dinosaurs are not proportional in comparison to each other (that totally doesn't sound right, but you understand what I mean)
so here you are:
I've just begun coloring the stegosauri
Just a journal to explain about a short project I'm currently working on: A few years ago, one of the supermarkets of my region decided to release a book with stickers about dinosaurs... I was all happy, since I like Dinos so much (Paleontology was my first choice of career... I chose a different path, but I've never stopped watching and reading stuff about dinosaurs...)
So, after one had bought the album in which there were texts, facts, explanations and beautifully drawn landscapes, one received a pack of 5 stickers for every 20 spent in the supermarket... which would have been fine with me if the event had lasted more than 6 or 7 weeks...
... in other supermarkets, it generally lasts 3-4 months, which gives people enough time to get a bunch of stickers and swap their doubles with other people in their block
.... but in this case, time was really short... when people complained, they said you could order (and pay for) the stickers you needed to finish your collection... and well, I'm not cheap, but didn't want to pay for about 25 stickers (11 dinosaurs in all) on principle... I was a bit angry, too, thinking about the kids who couldn't afford to buy the stickers with their pocket money... so I left the unfinished album on a shelf somewhere...
A few days ago, while doing a bit of cleaning, I saw it and "poof!" decided to complete it myself, with my drawings!
I'm going to try and be as close to the original drawing as possible, so it fits well in the album
Here is a page (this one with the stickers) of the said book:
As you see, there is always a realistic-looking dino and a cute-baby-fantasy one... so I've begun drawing the ones I haven't been able to collect... there are 11 of them:
- Stegosaurus (adult and fantasy-baby)
- Parasaurolophus (adult and fantasy-baby)
- Triceratops (fantasy-baby)
- Euoplocephalus (adult and fantasy-baby)
- Tyrannosaurus Rex
dunno how I'm gonna post them yet... on the pages when it's finished, all together before sticking them... no idea... maybe you do?
wish you many smiles on your way today!
