Aww! It's so cute! But if one was breathing down my neck like this guy, I'd likely think otherwise.

Might I just ask how you go about drawing all of these? For sure you know alot about prehistoric animals, so even with limbs and teeth you are able to get a general idea of the size and body shape :)
But how do you go about the shading and scaling? And what kind of pencil do you use?

I use 3 kinds of mechanial pencils, a 0,5 mm, a 0,7 mm and a thicker graphite pencil for the shading. The scles in my pictures have changed a lot. In former times, I made big ones. But since a few weeks I make very small scles. I do them individually, one scale after the other. This takes several hours,but its worth the time :)

Oh my gosh! Several hours? That explains why they look so proffesional :D
I usually just use a 0.7 mm for all my drawings. I used to use 0.5 mm too, but I went through lead too fast. I naturally press down kind of hard so if I tried sketching something quickly, the lead would always snap because of how thin it is :/

Thank you though :)

you are really shifting through these. How long does each one take you?

The head is certainly that of an allosaur, especially those arms.
