Dinosaurs are fascinating beasts of paradox, inhabiting the world between monster and animal, imagination and science. For many, dinosaurs are the introduction to understanding the natural world. Not surprisingly, many of the world's leading paleontologists started out as artists.

While showing audiences how to create T. Rex, David shows how to approach drawing T. Rex - beginning with the building blocks of simple shapes and ultimately tackling more complex and dynamic scenes.
