Crocodile Rock by Loopydave Crocodile Rock by Loopydave
I'm sure there is insanity to be found in painting so many scales - every time I paint a crocodile I promise myself to NEVER do it again... but I guess I'm called 'loopy' for a reason.

Pencil sketch on paper, painted in photoshop.

Even though it's been years, I just realised..

'so may scales'

The goldfish hopping out of a beer mug is a nice touch!

Dear Dave:

This is Indy.  Greetings from the Great White North!!!!

I am faving this piece. Bang up job on the crocodile and the piano, not to mention it reminds me of one favourite oldies--Elton John's "Crocodile Rock." This one of the reason why I joined Deviant Art. The work is great here!!!!!

Keep up the good work, kiddo!


                                                                                       Sincerely yours always,

                                                                                        Indy.

Looks a bit that way... but its a heart inside a tribal pattern tattoo. He got real drunk one night after singing at the bar and woke up with a new tat.

I remember when rock was young
Me and Suzie had so much fun
Holding hands and skimming stones
Had an old gold Chevy and a place of my own
But the biggest kick I ever got
was doing a thing called the Crocodile Rock
While the other kids were rocking 'round the clock
we were hopping and bopping to the Crocodile Rock
