Now let’s say you do as Antoine de St-Exupéry and take up the challenge without asking too many questions. How would you draw that dino? I guess it depends on when you were asked the question. Let’s go back through the history of drawing dinosaurs. The pictures I grew up with were the ones from Jurassic Park who [&hellip
