I've been slapped with art block these past few weeks, so it was a relief to put pencil to paper and draw again. Yesterday, I got into a conversation about tattoos - couple of friends of mine are getting their first tats soon, and I'm aiming to get mine after my a** is outta high school. (Before you ask, no, it won't be this. :P)

As most of my friends know, I am a huge dino-nut. Jurassic Park has been a favorite movie of mine since I was barely old enough to pronounce "Velociraptor". I've been wanting to do a design like this for quite a while - featuring my two favorite dinosaurs.

I'll probably keep this, and rework the design in a couple of years. I want to design one of my tattoos from scratch, and my old ones don't cut it anymore. This one, I like. But as it stands, it's only a "maybe I'd get it as a tattoo". The day I'm fully confident in my realism is the day I go for it.

I may redo this particular design several times before I'm happy with it; who knows?

As I said on deviantARt, this is an amazing peice. The shading looks awesome, and the dinos look accurate to thier movie counterparts.

I've no idea.

Note to self: Don't listen to Datsik - "Game Over" and drink milk after 11pm when you're already running on maybe four hours of sleep. x_x

Listening to dubstep in general will f*ck you up. XD

I find it especially funny that that pic was supposed to be a KITTEN.

Crookedstar and Silverstream enjoy a comfortable chat on the bank of their Clan's beloved river.

Why, yes, the background is crap. 8D

I've literally been up all night long for lack of the ability to fall asleep, and just doing THIS to keep from brooding. If anything looks off...now you know why. Sometimes things that look awesome to tired burning eyes just aren't awesome in actuality.

I tried out some new things, too, because I always want to know how New Things look when you put them in a drawing.

How did they work?

For a first time experiment, I'd say....decent. Needs work and improvements and stuff. Words words words. 8U
