Day Two of this 30 day Dino challenge appears to be Favorite Sauropod…
:[ That’s like trying to choose my favorite pokemon, favorite book, or my favorite way to cook hamburgers. Yeesh.
Settled on Diplodocus, but only after a mighty battle between him, Supersaurus, or Sauroposeidon. Just shoot me now, seriously D8
Tried painting this a bit differently than usually would…nooot sure if I actually hit what I was aiming for, but its not bad, at least ^^;

i found this on IsisMasshiro's DA, and went trawling through tumblr for the original, only to find it had been deleted some unknown time ago. So after more digging, I found someone else that had listed the challenge, and seeing as I'm on a dino kick, I'm going to try my first tumblr 30 day challenge 83 And i wrestled Boarfeathers into doing it with me >.> Cause I hate doing things alone  and she loves dino's too. So lets see if I can actually manage to finish this :|

Day one is favorite Theropod…Baryonyx, hands down. Started with a few random scribbles that….never…got….finished….and decided to paint the big one in photoshop. That looks much better 83

30 Day Dinosaur Challenge: Day 1: Favorite Theropod
So Sargassos talked me into doing this 30 day dinosaur challenge with her, it’s been a while since I did an art challenge on here so why not, plus dinosaurs are awesome XD. I’ll resubmit this when I’m back home from my parents house and can get it all cleaned up.
Chose a Spinosaurus for day 1, they’re so toothy and adorable :3

I finished up a few of the beads yesterday, but I still haven’t gotten near decent pictures of them. :/ The lighting in my house is crappy and yellow, and the lighting at work is good, but I had to take pics with my phone and they came out all pixelly and blurry…

Jen helped me pick the beads (which she also provided, what would I do without her? XD) On to the second set!

sargassos:

Finished (mostly) versions of the Club face cards, to go along with these cards here 
Colors and patterns inspired by a few varieties of python, and by our Americauna hen, Dis, for the raptor. I am in love with the Rex, his colors are so flamingly stupid and make no natural sense, I love it XD
It literally took me until I was ready to post this to realize all my theropods are standing on one leg. They’re attempting to evolve into flamingos :|

Group shot! 
I’m still breaking from the therizinosaurus, because I’m sick of feathers and still haven’t located his base, so I’ve been working on the cards and me dino minis and tinies. Jen finally painted the stegosaurus, and he came out so neat! She says he’s based off a few types of horny toads. Good choice, methinks, they’ve all got such nifty patterns. 
And then I added a generic diplodocid sauropod to the family. His tail is a little short for a diplodocus or supersaurus, but considering he’s only about three inches long, I was afraid making it any longer and thinner would be a fragility hazard :| He’s cute though.
I’m going to take them all to work with me tomorrow and see if i can get some better lighting for pictures…Everything in our place is yellow lighting, and the flash kept throwing those lovely obnoxious highlights all over the steg…I swear, i didn’t use glossy finish this time D8
Stegosaurus and Parasaurolophus are each about an inch and a half long, sauropod is juuust about three inches long and an inch tall. Super sculpy and acrylic paints.
Its four in the morning here, why am I awake painting dinosaurs?

sargassos:

Its the Mini Brigade!

Maybe I’ll take them out in the yard with the camera tomorrow, that would mean better pictures :/

Anyways, Parasaurolophus, Stegosaurus, and Diplodocid Genericus (I was afraid to make his tail any longer or thinner at this size, with no armature, so he’s only the most basic idea of a sauropod. Or maybe he’s just very young :|)

All were sculpted by me, and I painted the Sauropod, who was done without any actual reference, but with redtail boas and various antelope in mind…and Parasaurolophus, who is based on a pattern variety of pyyython I think (I need to better categorize my reference folder), after I screwed with the colors in photoshop to fit my fancy. 

Jen painted the Steg, who I made for her. He’s based off of three types of Horny Toad (or horned lizards, depending on where you grew up) I admire her attention to tiny details XD

Hopefully more will follow this lot. I demand no less than a tiny dino army.

sargassos:

The majority of set two. Only one missing was a horrendous attempt at a tapejara that looks more like a demented bat-ray eating a butterfly fish :| I’m hoping it will look better when its DONE. (but they’re not very high hopes)

And the poor spinosaurus is already retired :| This is what happens when you forget you have a bead in your hand…while eating snack foods….He’s not broken, but he can officially be dubbed either “Scarface” or “One Eye”, or maybe even “Chip” from all the paint I bit off -.- I am…so beyond shamed.

And off peanut brittle for a long time.

I think I much prefer dipping my paintbrush in my drinks.
