Sauropod Liveblogging 15: FINISHED (for now)


Here we are with the finished piece - well not quite, but it is as much as I am going to do today! 2:00 am and time for bed. That was a blast, a whole day - 15 hours of painting and blogging. All it needs now is a name: Rearing in the Rain. Umm... maybe. With that, I bid you goodnight.

Music: none, except for the sounds of snoring...

Wow, that is amazing! I was especially impressed by the ground with all the muddy footprints.

Great job!
I like that dark rain effect!!


BTW it seems like we listen to the same type of music. LOL

Looking awesome! Well done with the rain platter effect, the gap between skin and rain "cloud" of spatter looks just right.

Congrats! Very nice piece!

Along with me echoing everyone else, I assume you reconstructed that infamous mount in the....darn, I can't remember the name of the Museum, though I HAVE seen photos of it before! lol! ;P

Zach said...

Incredible job, sir! I liked all the experimentation in the progression.

It's brilliant Peter. Very dynamic. So much life and the rain adds another energetic dimension. So often with dinosaur paintings the scenes are void of life and the figures become wooden but you put real heart into your work and it shows.

Very good stuff man! The rain effect is a very hard trick to pull off but you made it work. The proportions of both dinosaurs are dead on! A blue Allosaurus looks a bit odd (are predators supposed to stand out that much from their surroundings?) but I think I can get used to it. I really like action scenes like this, I might do one later.

BTW I'm still live blogging so feel free to comment.
