Well, congrats... you beat me to yet another idea! ;D I started a feathered egg-dribbler months ago, but decided I wasn't up to the job. (Bloody feathers! How do they work?) Good to see someone really talented take it on - yours is fantastic!
Thank you, Ingunn! That must be an exceptionally rare thing: my actually beating someone to something! I still think you should continue yours though. I recall seeing you do feathered dinosaurs before and they were great!
Sorry, Jhudstone, I must have missed your post for some reason! I use mostly Inscribe pastels for the models, but also a few colours from Sennelier and Rembrandt. I don't think it matters which brand you use though.
David Krentz's Antediluvian T. rex. I used this drawing as colour guide, but decided to do without the red markings I'd originally planned for the flanks. I felt they'd be too intrusive on this scale, though they could probably work better on a larger model.
Please excuse the numerous pictures. The lighting turned out differently in each, so I thought I'd include a number of them to give a better idea of the actual thing.
I think this side turned out a little better than the 'display side', which is rather inconvenient.
This is perhaps my favourite picture, being the most faithful to the original.
I know, I know, I seem to paint in just this range of colours at the moment. I can't help it, I'm very fond of earth reds and browns.
