Big Bird, and tool Ma'am

Here's a feathery T rex sketch in B&W.
Again with the cassowary/emu hairstyle-( trouble with that is those birds have a bum part all the way down their back).
Tool ma'am is a quick scribble (ie 2 min) that I then kept noodling away at for an hour, then tried adding some kind of backgroundy thing instead of being on white for 15 min-but wasn't quite sure what that should be..

Lunchtime hellboy thingy plus scrappy scribbles

I am a bit sick of drawing dogs on bicycles. So at lunch I did this superfast scribble of hellboy- so far as I can remember- except I didn't do the sloping shoulders barrel chest the way they ought-probably amongst a hostof other things- anyway.....

Ogre in progress

Quick ogre drawing-might finish it a bit more- add gratuitous detail etc.

Oh-only about 18 months later...

I add some lines and nicety to this old watercoloury pic-(for those who remember).
Signalling a change in the air.
Theres a gigantic mess of drawings I need to finish or colour-so maybe I'll begin in spare moments to do that.

Unseen options.

Here are a couple of page ideas(of many) that aren't making it into the current book I'm working on.
They're rough(well they're 'roughs' so they ought to be)
- but I like them rough as they are.

While I was working on bits and pieces for blog and website redecorating I did a quick polar dinosaur scribble-because I think I have to get with the feathered dinosaur times. I was sort of trying different things so thats why it looks a bit shaven cat patchy.
Idea was- the plesiosaur has penguin like feathers-and is on a huge mound of rotting kelp scrub turkey style. The other dino also has some penguiny feather plus more cassowary like ones.
(I still want to do the ultimate australian dinosaur book.)
