My last post was a bit of an announcement for a special bird/dinosaur drawing zoo sketch group. Here’s a bit of the oucome from that day; Flamingos, pigeons, and a Therizinosaur (loosely based around beipiaosaurus). The Therizinosaurs were a *very* strange group of dinosaurs… Feathered herbivores descended from carnivorous theropods, they looked (As Ryan Shutter put it..) like “Turkey Monsters.” It’s with species like these, species that blur the line between birds and dinosaurs, that you can really have fun and merge wildlife drawing and concepting.
On a side-note, I prepared a handout for the Dinosaur drawing day. While it was designed to be paired with the talk I gave, the breakdown I made of the theropod form and shapes still is helpful on it’s own. If you’re interested in a printable version of the handout for your own personal use, click the thumbnail below.
