Emotions - surprise

Next to last in the emotions-series (previously: fear, sadness and rage).

Do not forget your Tyrannosaur-EXTM deterrent when venturing into the primeval jungle!

I am quite happy with how the riding-lizard turned out - I want one! I probably could have spent some more thime on the foilage, though. Also, the claw of the poor Tyrannosaurus is and looks lika an afterthought. But! I drew the trepid explorer without a reference, and her anatomy works, more or less. Horray for me!

Lastly I thought it would be interesting to show the preliminary sketch I made, where I figured out where everything would go. Normally I need to make more than one of these, but this picture sprang more or less fully formed into my mind, like a hungry tyrannosaurus, or a bad metaphor.


Both drawings pencil on A4 paper.

Edit: Ahem. I actually was drawing surprise, not fear as previously stated. Fear I've already done. Corrected in title and text.


  1. This is one of my favorite of your sketches. Very nice!

  2. Thanks! It was really fun to do, too, especially the lizard.
