I like to make my base drawings in a reddish hued pencil. I feel I can better build up my line. I enjoyed this for the Gallimimus as I wanted to give them feathers, since it seems very likely they had them. The lighter pencil color lent itself well to the creation of texture.
Today’s post is a little sparse because I am getting over a cold. I was in Boston last week and neglected to take good enough care of myself. I first got laryngitis and then due to too many cough drops, I believe, I got a sinus cold/infection. Flying home was a treat. Thankfully it’s spring in California and the weather is actually humid so, my healing as been expedited. I keep hoping tomorrow I will finally feel almost myself. Maybe tomorrow.
