Painting a day: number 2! Yorick.
No scales but still not done, who needs teeth? This one was from life and I probably spent 3.5 to 4 hours on it? About there somewhere.
So I decided to do that painting a day thing…on the weekends. Unfortunately I got a little carried away with the scales and didn’t finish.

The New Spinosaurus

by Brian Switek

Spinosaurus has changed dramatically since I was a kid. The model I used to terrorize my other toys with looked like an overgrown Allosaurus with a giant sail on its back.

As paleontologists rearranged the dinosaur family tree and found new species, however, they realized that Spinosaurus was a very different sort of animal, allied with croc-snouted, heavy-clawed dinosaurs like Baryonyx. When Spinosaurus finally tore up the celluloid in 2001′s Jurassic Park III, it was as a monstrous carnivore with giant claws, an elongated snout filled with conical teeth, and a flashy fin atop its back. And the evolution of Spinosaurus imagery has not stopped.

A paper out in Sciencexpress today proposes that Spinosaurus was far stranger than paleontologists expected.

The core of the new study, led by University of Chicago paleontologist Nizar Ibrahim, is a partial skeleton of Spinosaurus found in the 97 million year old rock of Morocco. The importance of the new specimen is in revealing parts of Spinosaurus never seen before. The skeleton includes parts of the skull and some vertebrae, but the real keys to the new Spinosaurus are the hips and hindlimbs…

I had to do a little drawing for The Killing, I COULDN’T HELP MYSELF. 
The Killing was such a wonderful show and the ending was so, so perfect. I adored it, so much so I just had to doodle something for it. I ugly cried my way through the entire thing, it was beautiful. SO MANY FEELINGS. “I never had a real house to grow up in. You know, home. I never belonged anywhere. And all my life, I was looking for that thing, you know. Thinking that it was out there somewhere. That all I had to do was find it. But I think, maybe, that home was us. It was you and me, together in that stupid car, riding around, smoking cigarettes. I think that was everything. I’m sorry. I should have known that you were one person who always stays. And you were my best friend.”Linden &amp; Holder &lt;3

I took a day to revisit the pegajay. I&#8217;ve decided I need a lot of practice with digital painting.
I can&#8217;t remember ever really painting feathers before. This will be an adventure.
