It's a new year, and over at Flickr, I started the customary yearly Sketch of the Day folder. These are the first drawings I uploaded to that folder. I'd wanted to watch the "Nature" episode "Jungle Eagle", about a team of biologists who go through a lot to record the life-cycle of a family of Harpies in Venezuela, for years but I always managed to miss it. Thankfully, it and a bunch of other episodes of "Nature" have appeared on Netflix Instant.
These are all ballpoint pens on recycled Sketchbook paper. A warning to all Tyrannosaurs I draw from now on: this is going to be my modern-day model/inspiration for you. That crest!!!
