Drawing Study: Allosaurus

Today, I got a chance to do a drawing of my newest toy: The Allosaurus. As with the other dinosaurs that I've been drawing, this was one of the more realistic toys that I've used as a standard still life.

This was a fun dinosaur to draw. I was having trouble today with my cross-hatch technique. So, got to get my thinner pens out and practice a little more with it. Parts of the dinosaur are shaded too heavily and part have the lines a little too defined for my liking.

However, the size and proportions seem to be correct for the model. He's scheduled for some appearances for one of my paintings, so I want to draw him a couple more times so that I can get the shadow patterns laid out correctly.
