About a year ago I tried my hand at drawing a Tyrannosaurus according to a how-to DVD. I thought it wasn't too shabby, but to paraphrase the response of my editor, it seems that my talents are better suited to writing.

Artist Ronnie Tucker, however, is more skilled with pencil and paper than I, and he recently uploaded a time-lapse video of him drawing an Allosaurus. It goes by a little quickly for those of you who might want to follow along, but it is still quite impressive. I wish I could draw dinosaurs that well!
