I spend a bit of time out of doors sketching and getting into nature. Most of the dinosaur drawings start out do to something I see in those times spent out of the house. This drawing was hatched from observations of a wood-turtle I caught for a few minutes and released back into the stream. All of the orange colors the turtle had where around the head neck and shoulders. Male wood-turtles get more vibrant during mating season to attract potential mates. Years after observing the turtle in all its glory I did this and included another member of the chelonian family as a nice recognition of where the inspiration came from.
