(2006) 9"x12" Pencil on Paper
Well, I thought about breaking this sequence up with another jewelry project, but hey, this little fellow just looked at me and begged to be posted, so here's another one of my lizard drawings.
This one is a Bearded Dragon (pogona vitticeps) which is an Australian desert creature, though there's been an export ban on them for quite some time, and any animal on the market these days is captive-bred. They are named Bearded Dragons, because of their long thorny scales under their chins which can become pitch black in an angry or excited male.
Normally they are very friendly lizards, though, that will get quite tame and form a strong bond with their owners. If I ever graduate from my two geckos, I'd definitely settle for one of these... maybe a lovely red or gold phase - and I'd have my very own personal dragon.
This drawing was based on a magnificent shot by
