Momma Rex and Baby by AlbinoOctopus Momma Rex and Baby by AlbinoOctopus
This is a 10x10 ft. pastel chalk drawing I made recently for a local contest :D it took me roughly ten hours of non stop work (disregarding a ten minute taco break....)and im still sore to this day :/ its primarily based off an old sketch i made a year or two ago, i submitted the sketch but on a different channel :P i based much of the colors off of felipe-elias T. Rex growth-pattern picture series :)

I cant tell you how hard it is to get a good picture of such a large piece, so unfortunately i couldn't photograph most of the babies body :(

i could never do this. not becuase i can;t draw dinosaurs, but i suck at pastels. i would probably end up sitting on it by accident. or smearing it beyond recognition

I have this thought for my book to put a baby T-rex in a fez :) I had watched the fez on Doctor Who and I thought the baby would look cute. Do you think the fez is a good idea? It a kids book so...

ya i think it would be a fun idea! i think kids would find it quirky and comical to see a dinosaur wearing a hat, especially one iconic and out of the ordinary as a fez! :)

Sweet, thanks! I wasn't so sure considering that writing books for kids is REALLY hard. No one knows just how picky they are.
