_Psittacosaurus mongoliensis_ Drawings
Psittacosaurus mongoliensis; literally, the parrot lizard of Mongolia.
Started the Saturday before 14 May 2005 and finished on that day. Carmine red Sanford pencils on 7.5"x11" sketchbook paper (and a little bit over, as you can see on the tail).
Psittacosaurus mongoliensis dorsal view of the skull. Note that the left side of the skull is missing material.
The second image was begun at the request of ESRC correspondent Paul Riddell (who, unless I misremember, needed visual reference for a Psittacosaurus sculpture he's planning. Why I just didn't send him a digital photograph is beyond me, but this kind of turned out well. Hope I get to see it someday anyhow.) Started and finished 25 June 2005. Carmine red Sanford pencils on 7.5"x11" sketchbook paper.
