Weird question: I saw this awesome rocker chic on a pterodactyl on Google image search. Some further investigation, trying to find a larger image led to you as the creator (but I saw so many critiques on that forum! Don't listen to their nonsense..). Is there any chance you could upload this here?? I really liked it!
To each his own...I practice from life all the time as far as anatomy and figure drawing goes--feels natural to me, but everyone interprets things differently, I guess. Glad you like my gallery, at any rate.
