acrylics & spray-paint 2004, Landscape with Caulkicephalus trimicrodon from Isle of Wight. Other pterosaurs are Ornithocheirus sp. and Isthiodactylus latidens. Down in the beach, Iguanodon atherfieldensis with its calf.
Man, the picture is great. But this animal may not exists. Because they have caracteristics from ranforincus and pterodactylus togeter! I think they (local paleontologists) founded a lot of ptera bones and simply put them togeter, creating a beautiful, but not real creature. That is what I think.
Thanks! I know the folding of my wings look unnatural (in fact I later tested it on a model made of wire and Jesus-tape [duct-tape, keeps even Jesus hanging on a crucifix]) and even impossible. I`m not yet too warmed up for this "new pterosaur-design"... put appreciate it still. Thanks again.
For all you were worrying about the spray paint it didn't turn out bad at all. I'd really love to see the original. You did really well with the rock in the foreground. I have to tell you that because rocks I suck at so I always notice when someone does a good rock. And I really like the way you did the water from far away.
It wasn`t this one, it was another Lourinhã-scene... It was suppose to some kind of soft mist-effect, but it turned out to look too "grainy" is that a word!? No it is! Shouldn`t used spray there at all!
Meh, grainy airbrush sucks, unless that's what you're going for.
Speaking of Lourinha, I think that the way things are going with me being away from my art stuff is that I'm gonna work on that idea for the next year and enter it then. I've come up with some ways that I'll be able to incorporate the full animal as well as the reclining one that you saw so that the nesting ground scene is a little more... better. Ha, my grammar just went out the window. I'll do up some sketches and send them to you to see what you think. Plus I wanna do it in acrylics and oil on a large frameless canvas and I just don't have enough time to be able to finish it and have it be good for the competition. Sucks really, since I was really hoping to enter this year.
Anyhoo, I think this cove scene turned out really well.
Looking forward to?
I'll be working on updates this week I think. Hopefully I can get my !#@$!@#$ modem figured out so that I can get on-line from my 'puter at home. I hate machines that don't work!!!!!!
Scanners do that all the time. It seems they can only acquire black and white things well... The colored stuff always comes out strange. Specially if they are colored pencils.
But don't be sad, I think we can all understand if a piece is good, even if the scanner made an awful work
Actually I`m not really sure about is that is (anatomically) correct... Depends how you understand the picture. I`ll try to be more careful next time. And the scanning really made the cove "cool down"... it`s suppose to look warmer.
