So this week, I have a challenge before me: My good friend Dustin Johnson who has a blog over here, suggested that the two of us should start doing a weekly jam to keep our skills sharp. We used to do this sort of thing back in college, and quite frankly, I miss the times of sitting around with some chums, someone gives a ridiculous concept, and we all start drawing. Anywho, I decided to start us off with our first jam, and since I went to the zoo this past week (I'll probably post up photos soon of that,) I decided to do something along that line.
So our challenge this week is to do a drawing/painting of a zoo-type dinosaur enclosure. Things to keep in mind is that we have to be able to show the dinosaur, have people in the scene, and at least suggest how the dinosaur is enclosed (moat, glass like how Tiger pens usually are or the Reptile house, netting, etc.) Should give us both a workout.
Here's what I have so far. I decided to do my favorite dinosaur family, the Dromeosaurids, and do up a pen for those little vicious buggers. Once this is done I may put up a progress post just to show the steps I took to this, but for now, this is all you get.
