And some Cenozoic animals for a change:

broken tablet & Polish Triassic fauna

My old Graphire tablet died yesterday. It's 5 years old so maybe I shouldn't be so surprised but still... I'll only be able to buy a new one in December. I'd like to buy a Wacom Intuos at last^_^

Anyway, here are some reconstructions of Polish Triassic fauna I did a year ago for the Focus magazine:
(The animals here are not proportional.)

There were 9 images in total and I had only 4 day to paint all of them... That was a nightmare, but I managed to do it:)

August update

Wow, I can't believe I've been so lazy the whole summer. Or maybe it's still my stupid crisis, looks like it hasn't stopped for about... a year? And there I thought it was over in June. Whatever.
I'm uploading 2 new pictures, one finished and one WIP (another one that's most probably never going to be finished *cough*).

Velociraptors and mahakalas (and remains of a protoceratops):

The background was referenced. I still need to work more with various colour palettes and some more interesting lighting.

And the second picture... I decided to copy Velazquez's Juan de Pareja:
There's not much left, but I can't find that book where the painting was:[ (the pics you can find on the Internet seem to have "mutated" colours... too greenish or reddish).

Another WIP...

Yet another WIP. Only a fragment this time, because on the right are only some blobs of colour:P
Dromaeosaurs:

Allosaurus and Ornitholestes - WIP

I decided to colour one of the sketches posted earlier... I wanted to paint something more complex this time and I quite enjoyed it in the beginning, but right now I'm totally stuck. There's something wrong with this picture, but I can't put my finger on it.

Iguanodon and Megalosaurus


Iguanodons:



Megalosaurus:


These pictures are actually very small (A6 and ~A5). I wanted to focus rather on color scheme than anything else.

Mononykus / landscape practice

A little exercise in painting landscapes aaand stuff with strong lighting. I wanted to draw oviraptors there at first, but mononykus fits somehow better.


The background was referenced from a photo (but not traced, unfortunately some people don't see a difference).

Allosaurus

Just 2 sketches... I'm not a big fan of carnosaurs, but there you go.

paleo sketches

An update at last! No more wasting my time on computer games (I'd still like to finish Silent Hill: Homecoming, though:P).
Anyway, here are the sketches:
Anchiornis huxleyi

Velociraptor


Smilodon with cubs:

version without the texture:


I think I like both versions equally:) I still have to practice drawing mammals more. The adult smilodon anatomy seems kinda off to me. I referenced the pose from a photo of a tiger, but it wasn't that much help after all. I'll try better next time!

Long time no see! :x

I realised I haven't posted anything in 2 months. The truth is, I haven't been drawing anything at all >_< I've got  ideas, but no motivation. Maybe it will change eventually:)
Anyway, here's a picture I drew today, rather quick one:


As much as I dislike orange colour, I like how it turned out here:P
