Here's my imaginary animal Timutamus, a distant prehistoric cousin of the hipopotamus. This guy's pretty ugly to look at. I started from a tiny sketch I made a while back, created from some doodling while waiting for the train to come. I wanted a sort of underwater swampy look, but still clear enough to permit some caustic effect to appear on the body of the creature. While finishing this art, it reminded me of a dinosaur sticker book I collected when I was still a kid, and it featured some really nice paintings from Charles R. Knight. I used to look at those stickers everyday and imagine the dinosaur world inside. Come to think of it, it is probably his art that inspired me to become an artist. Anyway, the original Timutamus sketch is here:

Don's first flight

I've done a color sketch of a juvenile Pteranodon standing on a cliff, about to have it's first flight. I wanted to portray a somewhat cloudy day, where the view of the cliff overlooks the blue sea below. Happy!
