I'm not a world traveler, not yet anyway, but I can pretty much find inspiration anywhere. Drew this sketch during a recent visit to Kansas, where we were lucky enough to find the Sternberg Museum in Hays. It is a decidedly worthwhile side trip if you're on I-70. http://sternberg.fhsu.edu/
Among the many fossils, there were plenty of Plesiosaur-types. Dragons definitely come to mind, but so do birds with teeth.
I didn't pay much attention to the names of these dinosaurs--was too busy
photographing them for reference (and playing with Hipstamatic).
Nothing hits the sweet spot like bird skulls with dental issues...
...but this snaggle-tooth fish comes close!
I scanned my initial pencil sketch and have been playing around with a variety of approaches on different papers, most of which don't have happy endings--like this one. Still, more are on the drawing table, and lots more toothy birds are developing in my sketchbook.
Thanks for checking this out!
