Max's Dinosaur's Part Six: Pteranodon Nest

    As promised in my last post, here is the final dinosaur illustration for Max! What? You don't know what I'm talking about? I'm talking about the illustrations I did for my friends Ben and Ashley's son Max! Just click here or the label at the bottom of the post to see all four illustration and a "behind the scenes" look at my process creating them.

    Like I mentioned last time, I knew these illustrations would be hanging in Max's nursery. As I thought about them rocking him to sleep in their arms and gently laying him in his crib, I knew I wanted to make this one gentle and sweet.

   As you can see, after I figured out which expressions and heads to use, I drew and inked the final drawing. I then added watercolors (which really made it pop!) I know I've already said it a bunch, but it sure was lots of fun working with Ben and Ashley making these for Max last year. I'm really thankful for the opportunity.

    Another place you can see all of the final dinosaur illustrations for Max is over on my Behance Portfolio page. Thanks for checking in! I've got to get back to making more art, so until next time God bless!
