A zalmoxes shqiperorum, an early ornithopod dinosaur
The style for this painting (the water/milk? and the sky? patterns) was mainly derived from Camille Rose Garcia's amazing paintings and the dinosaur form was "borrowed" (i basically copied) from Joćo Boto's (sputatrix.deviantart.com) sketch for zalmoxes (Boto is an amazing paleoillustrator and, personally one of my favorite artists, y'all should check his work out), and the dino's color was used in reference of William Stout's alioramus watercolor.
I hope you enjoy!
I think this painting has inspired me to start a whole new series based on these Camille Rose Garcia paintings....ahh, maybe later...
Professor von Stephens: So, Quinn, whatcha got planned for this one?
Me: Well, i think-
Jake McKibben: (cutting in) Jeff's gonna paint himself lifting weights in the bottom corner! He'll be all, "Argghhh!" (struggling noises, pretending to lift weights)...
Me: Yep. That's what i'm gonna do.
Professor von Stephens: (shakes head, walks away)
Sorry, no self-portrait of me struggling under wights. maybe later.
I couldn't get this one to photograph well... but i guess i'm happy with how the tape looks. but i could have done better on the thumbtacks and the moth. *double *
grandma is a super nova that is bombarting my planet (me) with cosimic rays (yelling at me.) the text is what i said to grandma the other day when she got on my case about tenchi muyo well i didn't actually say it but i wrote her a letter. ok i didn't write the letter but i was thinking about writing it but i didn't because someone might find it and show her. this is a sort of sequel to the one where i drew grandma's big head because this has that same head in it.
I'm not doing much abstract art. I think it's too easy to do poorly and very hard to do right.
So, while I'm a big fan of good abstract art (depthcore etc), I haven't had much success myself in doing it. I'd like to change that, so I've begun studying other peoples artwork and trying some new techniques.
Sorta a series I guess you could say. This is inspired by the greed in this world, or perhaps just America. I find it sorta sad that America has alot of money whereas other countries maybe do not so. There is poverty in America and with this President it has much more chances of becoming even more prevailent. Working at the grocery store has taught me so much about humanity and moneys coexistence. I am sadly a penny collector. Pennies can add up. I am cheap because I sorta have to be. I am not rich. Many people leave their change after buying groceries, especially pennies, they do not care about the small change. Only problem is they put that money right back into the corporate grocery store. All the change adds up! But when it comes to big bills they want it all.
Other people, homeless, hungry, or third world countries, would love those added up pennies. Ask any guy standing their with a cup downtown begging for "change"
But when it comes to big bills we all get greedy. Money is what runs the world. Big money runs the people.
