Well I'm now officially half way done with my hundred days of dinosaurs!
I'm finding I'm now back into a more stream of conscious mindset than a while back. Before I took a few weeks off I was thinking of the whole of the project with an overall arc, but those thoughts have faded a bit as I was away form the project. It's probably something I should put a little attention on, but it's actually kind of satisfying letting the story inform me as to the next events as I get to them. I'll try to figure something out as I go!

I went to the dinosaur exhibit at the LA museum of Natural History yesterday which was very cool. Ironically, I'd already posted yesterday's post, (which was of Gus narrowly avoiding the spikes of a Stegosaurus) when I learned that stegosaurus wasn't even in the same era as triceritops or T-Rexes...by 80 million years! Perhaps had I not already posted, I may have adapted the steggie to another dinosaur, but since I had, I'm chalking it up to artistic license!

Thank you to everyone who has left the nice comments. I really appreciate your compliments and support!
I've now acquired quite a collection of dinosaur figures/toys...I'm pretty sure my wife thinks I've reverted back to childhood...my desk is littered with critters now! I can't believe how cool dinosaur toys are these day...when I was a kid these kinds of things were in a whole different league than what they've evolved into!

I'm nearly a third of the way into the project now. I noticed the blog shows fifty entries at a time, without having to go back to earlier posts. I'm not yet sure if that break will affect the rhythm of the story or not... ( but will most likely let the content drive whatever I decide to do...) But it's something I'm finding myself thinking about a bit now. I'm also kind of feeling my way through a general overall idea as to what'll happen in a general way. It's pretty interesting, just as a process, to see how the this thing is kind of taking a life of it's own.

As I'm working straight ahead on my hundred days of dinosaurs, I'm starting to form a thought of how it's going to work as a whole piece. I'm finding I have a general concept emerging, but working in this fashion, it's difficult at this point to see how an overall story arc is going to work. It may be too short for a hundred days,...it may go over a hundred days( although I'm wanting to commit to these constraints, since that was my initial concept.) Kinda flying without a net, but I'm having a good time with the project anyway!

It's interesting how this project is developing in my mind...it's pretty apparent that the T-Rex is immerging as the dominant villain of the piece...not surprising 'cause he's the coolest ever!
...of course there are other interesting meat-eating antagonists that could be cool, but it's hard to beat the king!
...besides... they're fun to draw.
(...and nobody'd be afraid of an herbivore!)

well, I've made it to day 6 of my hundred days of dinosaurs project. I 'm glad I didn't pre-emp the project by committing to a post EVERY day, but I'll do the best I can to keep it going. I wish the post could be modified so that you could scroll down to advance the story, rather than up, but evidently that's not in the cards.
I've been thinking a bit about Gus and am not really sure what kind of dinosaur he is; probably a velociraptor, but I'm open to other ideas from any dinosaur afficianados out there! ....maybe he'll grow into an Allosaurus, who knows?

Now that I've sketched a couple of dinosaurs, I've discovered a bit of a different direction for my hundred days of dinosaurs project. I'm going to follow this little guy named Gus through his adventures in the Jurassic period.
I have no idea where it's going to go, so it'll be a surprise to me too!...hopefully a cohesive one...fingers crossed.
