More Dinos and the Return of Snog the Fly

I felt like drawing a few more demented dinosaurs last night.  For no apparent reason I started doodling an old character of mine, snog the fly- a goofball character I used to draw back in high school. He liked to pop up when I was stressed out, couldn't sleep, or was pushing a deadline for an assignment. I guess it is still kicking around in my head somewhere.

It's weird to return to a character I used to draw years ago.

Here is the last known doodle of him. I found this on the backup drive, I think it was scanned 7-8 years ago...

Dino Heads

So... I tried out the moleskine sketchbook last night, I like it alot better. The only downfall, and I've always had this problem with moleskines, is any wet media sits on the surface before it dries.  Meaning, that if you're not careful ink will smudge.  It's a limitation I'm willing to work around. On the upside these two pages are front and back, almost no bleed through.

I neutralized the cream paper color to a white when I scanned these.  There's no reason not to draw dinosaurs. Off to work...

Sketches From a Lost Cause

I ran out of space in my last sketchbook. Feeling adventurous, I decided to give the Global Art Flexi-Sketch a try.  I wasn't particularly impressed with the paper but it seemed like a solidly bound soft cover sketchbook.... Or so I thought, about 4 days into using it the binding cracked. Instead of trying to mend it, I've decided to cut my losses, and try out the A4 folio Moleskine instead. I felt like preserving these pages.  Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and non-photo blue pencil. More pages after the jump...
