Going through James Gurney's blog today, and well found myself drawing a dinosaur.  Some paleontologists think small raptors had feathers,  so I added feathers too… sort of.  I used the water soluble graphite pencils to draw him, added a bit of watercolor and finally a few ink lines.


  1. A lot of these small guys are being found in China recently and some are much more birdlike than reptile like. Been following paleontology news , just fascinating new stuff being dug up all the time. Yes probably brightly colored instead of traditional browns and grays as color is what attracted mates for reproduction.

    1. I've been fascinated with dinosaurs from childhood, still find them mysterious and interesting to read about.
