sketching Dinos in the wild...

If it comes to sketching animals I rather prefer to sketch from life than anything else.
If you have the possibility to draw animals in their natural surrounding you should always give it a shot.
Luckily we do have a couple of dinosaurs in the outskirts of Berlin, it's not really hard to find them.






Although I really love the silhouettes of ceratopsians they are a quite delicate subject and can become easily aggressive, especially in the springtime when they are having their young...



giant crocodiles are better to be sketched from a distance...




And I told the kids not to get too close...





Next to that we learned that as a matter of fact Spinosaurus wasn't as dangerous as he is generally depicted...

Experts assume that there is a correlation between vegetarianism in spinosaurs and the growth...errmm...of trees.
Two years ago Spino was still carnivorous...;-P


Today we had a blast at the Tier- und Freizeitpark Germendorf.

  1. Isn't strange how passion could push an artist taking on such trips in places full of unknown dangers...
    Lovely kids, I've got myself two of this little wonders of life :0)
