I refined my stygimoloch sketch last night.
I love making ugly things cute. I think their very ugliness makes them cuter … it stops being “ugly” and becomes “character”.
I was looking for skeletons and skull reference, and ran across this.
Doesn’t it look like a dragon skull? It just needs bigger teeth and a heavier jaw is all!
Also, see the dome on top of the skull? The longer I looked at that silly dome, the more I thought of this.
This is a helmeted guinea fowl. They have one of the more hilarious faces in the poultry world. Anyway, now all I can think of is a dinosaur with a face that color, with the little funky square waddles.
