Tiny Rex

I should have posted this up immediately so I'm a tad late but... fair play to Bob Robinson who gave me this model he made for my birthday of a picture I painted a few months ago for a small auction... which he subsequently bought. Thanks man, it's cool and I'm chuffed with it. You can check out his website here which I highly recommend you do. I'd also like to take this moment to say the iPhone 3's camera fucking sucks...
For the sake of scale
And his little house where he goes to sleep

Bob, please don't expect as good a pressie from me on your birthday........ hope you like boiled eggs with hilarious faces painted on them!

This one is a bit of a double-edged-sword for me. I did this photoshop painting for my girlfriend's neice's 3rd birthday. Due to time constraints I used the eye-dropper tool on the original photo for picking colours. So while I'm happy with the finished painting, I also feel like I cheated which dilutes the satisfaction.

I try not to use the eye-dropper tool as much as possible and pick the colours myself to help improve my colour theory.

So am I a big fat fraud or does the end justify the means? If anybody has any opinion on what I'm talking about, I'd love to hear it.

The drawings above were 1 and 2 minute drawings. The drawings below however, the model would do a pose and we had 2 minutes to draw how we thought it looked from 90 degrees to the right of what we were looking at. Pretty interesting exercise, fun too.
