Hiding in the rainforest... by scilk Hiding in the rainforest... by scilk
in the rainforest... there's a DINOSAUR! :P

I painted this with watercolours for my mum's birthday (which is tomorrow). I am just... really really happy with how this came out! I have always wanted to draw dinosaurs, and recently I got a couple of books on dinosaurs so I can look at their body shapes etc. I just made this one up, but I especially love feathered dinosaurs. :) But did you know that apparently even T. rex had some feathers? wow, I didn't know that! It made me happy to know. hmmm

Well, I seriously think this is one of my best paintings yet. Expect more dinosaurs! :) Also, I'd love some dinosaur suggestions! :)

Haven't seen this one before! It looks so cute!^^

Wow, I wonder why a T. Rex would need feathers?

Oh man, I am seriously in love with this painting!!! Its just so calming and organic, my favourite sort of watercolour painting! Its so detailed yet all really blends together well, and I really love the range of greens you have used in this! What green did you say you used a lot in this? It was one I don't have....and must now have!
I'm looking forward to more dinos, you draw them so well after all! And nice forest-y scenes as well

did you use a pen to outline the shapes? or did you use just a really fine brush?

great job!

:la: glad you do. I used to be right into dinosaur when I was little but that was many moons ago so honestly I forgot a lot of their names ._. its hard to suggest too many because I would have to fly around wiki trying to remember what they're called.

So you made this one up? That's rather intriguing~
Any specific dino's that inspired this fellow?

This is so awesome. I really like the Earthy tones in this.

Ooo! You should do a Triceratops! Even though sometimes they aren't classified as a dino.
