I decided I needed to jump back into some painting! I've been working on this forest scene, trying to stay loose and yet realistic at the same time. I tend to prefer Paleoart that is heavy on the art and less so on the scientific illustration. If that makes sense;)
In this piece I want to try and paint a peaceful forest setting, with pretty colors and nice texture. I'm still working on pulling it together, but am happy so far.
I've loosely sketched in a potential inhabitant of the prehistoric forest. Some type of Stegosaur was calling to me and felt right in this setting. For now he is a generic form of steggie. I'll probably either go with Tuojiangosaurus or maybe Miragaia.
Anyway, I have many more in my head that I want to get going on. Maybe I will block in more paintings tonight;) I'll post more as I finish.
