Been sick for 3 days, and it’s kind of screwed up my blogging mojo.
Anyway, trying to get back on track:
I blocked in my colors, and experimented with the coloration on my dinos. I saw a dino on DA that had the horizontal stripe over its eye like that, and I liked it. A lot of lizards (and some fish, too) have a similar stripe … it’s like a superhero mask. I figure the male should be all bright flashy colors and the female can be all browns and creams.
I also realized that all the values in this pic are very close together. Check this out.
When converted to black and white, I don’t have any real good darks. So it’s back in to work on my shading.
