Finished on February 7, 2004. Started the previous day, took about 6 hours total (lots of erasing and redrawing). A random furry reptile thing that has nothing to do with my story. I was poking around here on Elfwood, when this creature suddenly popped into my head and pretty much demanded to be put on paper. (Oddly enough, it was completely unrelated to the picture I was looking at at the time.) Doing all those little scales made my hands hurt! I think the dinosaurs would have evolved into something like this if they had lived to see the first ice age. By the way, this is probably one of my largest drawings--the distance from the tip of the beak to the place where the tail curves is about 8 and 1/2 inches (about 22 cm) on the paper--I tend to draw small.
