About this cartoon...
Dakosaurus was a medium-sized marine predator that lived during the late Jurassic period.
Armed with a mouth full of sharp teeth, its name basically translates as “Biter Lizard”.
Creating my Dakosaurus
This prehistoric beastie was created firstly as a pencil sketch.
The next step was to fully digitise the outlines, followed by a nice bright green.
I then topped him off with a darker green pattern on his back and a few other shades and highlights.
I’ve placed him on a marine-themed background to really make him leap out of the page!
