Son of Lost World

I'm going to do a nice dinosaur piccy with a background so I've started doing rough ideas.
I did a quick dino scribble and then started thinking and looking at suitable trees- so just a start toward learning their structure and rhythm.
Probably far too late to be of use( to Five Mile Press) but not too late in the grand scheme o things.

I took the kids to Brisbane's Roma st parklands last week and noticed they've got a pretty nifty cycad planting- so I might go back and grab a photo for plant reference. I think my mum has a small sad looking wollemi pine too.
Actually I recall not so long ago some Council or Govt person whining about how they lost money on the whole Wollemi propagation thing- like it wasn't a good idea and they'd done it just to appease fringe dwellers. Well this fringe dweller says eff you you worthless council specimen- I care you even if you don't-
a bit respect for living things and value of diversity is in order.

Maybe some of these things are waiting their turn again.
Apparently because all the fish are fished out the Jellyfish think its their turn again now.
S0 that's what?- turning it back a few hundred million years?
Then with global warming maybe it'll be the right climate for giant lizards
- Huzzah!

Redecorating Tapir

Trying to start redecorating my blogs.
Here's an image I was trying today on my other blog.
Possibly should add a dreamer on the other end of the cloud.

Morning dino colour idea

Just a quick bit of noodling- I still need to do a nice dino on a background as a sample so this was a quick thought along those lines-I'd have fix the grassy stuff so its clear its not actually grass- don't think grass was around then as such- was it?.

An unlikely trio. Will finish clarifying the ogre and maybe suggest a background- still haven't thought what to put in the furry guys hands in the forest magic image.

Another quick image .
Need to think about more interesting trees....might ty a proper standing in uffish though image.
Need to find out what all the bridle and saddle etc actually look like so I can finish them
I think this guy on the horse looks a bit like you Tim if you're reading.

Big Boss

Thumbnail out of control number 2
-I will do a bit more on it- ie white outline next to dogboy is still in lach-inese.
Might fix up the anatomy a bit-(like hands and shoulders) we'll see.
Its more of an inspirational thing for myself to get my brain on the right track.
Kinda liking some of the characters made on the spur of the moment might do images of each- we'll see.

Air Ballista

In the absence of publishing people getting back to me I'm starting up my stuff again.
First decoded thumbnail(into more elaborate thumbnail) is an idea for a turbine powered crank for a dragon mounted ballista. Just need to figure a good reloading system yet. I've got the guy rugged up and tie on cos its cold up there travelling as fast as you do.
Can't quite decide whether to make them white 'snow lizards' or dark.
