Max's Dinosaurs Part Two: Triceratops

Figure Two: Triceratops, final piece, ink on 9.5" x 7.5" Bristol board paper.

    Did you guys read last week's post about Max and his dinosaurs? If not, you can read it HERE. Above is the second ink drawing I had the pleasure of doing for Max and his parents. His awesome dad, my pal Ben, wanted this one to be like a fossil display you would see at a museum. It took a while to draw all those bones and not get them all mixed up, but it was a fun challenge!

Desk shot: light pencils stage.
    As with the previous inked dino, I surrounded the artwork with my sketches and other references I thought would help me draw the desired pose accurately. I lightly penciled in the dinosaur and then inked it using multiple Faber-Castell PITT artist pens of different sizes. For a little bit more on this process, check out the previous post HERE. And to find out how you can get this ink drawing and others on everything from iPhone cases to t-shirts, click here to check out my Society6 shop.

    Next time, I'll be showing you how I tackled the Max's watercolors. Yep, more dinosaur goodness! Until then, God bless!
