Sometimes You Just Have to Call a Terd a Terd


While preparing to do a large scene I thought I would do a head study of dimetrodon and use colored paper...things seemed to be going along okay but at points I would stop and say to myself, "This sucks..." There are times I've weathered the storm and things would turn out okay...but this is one of a couple of drawings that when I look at it I just get mad because of the massive way in which it sucks...I could point out all the ways in which it sucks if you want...or you can just roll with it...Like one of my college professors said...sometimes you just have to be brave enough to tear it apart and start over...so after I cut out the eye...the one part I actually like...I believe this is going to be a campfire starter...hopefully it burns better than it turned out...so I started another head study to help get back into the flow of actually beginning the big picture...

You are way too hard on yourself, me thinks.

I don't know, this looks pretty darn good to me Brian, but I give you tons of credit for starting over and doing a far better drawing! Your own self-criticism is probably why our work is so good!
