• Dilophosaurus

When drawing dinosaurs, I get all the reference that I can find together and reconstruct the animal by drawing a rudimentary skeleton and working up a particular pose but wouldn’t it be great if I could set out with my sketchbook and draw the living breathing animal? That would probably be unwise when it comes to the carnosaurs but I had the chance to do the next best thing back in October 1997 when the Carnosaur! exhibition of animatronic dinosaurs was showing at the Yorkshire Museum.

  1. Great drawings Richard. You always capture movement beautifully, even in the smallest sketch. I think it makes all the difference.
    I read somewhere recently that T- rex is now believed to have eaten a lot more plant material than previously thought. Not the voracious carnivore we have been led to believe. That is quite a big jump but must be amazing for the paleontologists who make these discoveries.
