Jurassic Morning by EWilloughby Jurassic Morning by EWilloughby
This is one of the few things I've done lately that I actually like. In fact, I think it's going to be my new featured piece.

Anyway, it's an archaeopteryx swooping down to snatch up a tasty morganucodontid, which was a hairly little shrewlike thing. Mm, breakfast.

This was done in colored pencil and some watercolor pencil. Michael Skrepnick/Todd Marshall reference was used. Obviously. :(

Thank you! I like to think I've improved a huge amount since this drawing, but it's always held a special place in my heart (despite the probably blatant Todd Marshall influence).

I just can say one thing, KEEP IT UP!

Oh yes, if you have time, can you give me some critics at my work please?

Greetings,

That rocks! I love the dinosaurs. Archeopteryx is one of my favorites.

Good mix of dinosaurian and avian features. Great pencil work.

the lighting is gorgeous, especially the way it is refracted as if by jungle mist, it gives it a feeling like even the air is alive here.

Beautiful.

You really capture the movement. The sun's rays shinging through the trees are ... perfect.

I like the swooping effect.
Nice style aswell, the yellow around the archaeopteryx makes it look very powerful against the morganucodontid.
Nice work :)
