The Stars Hold No Truths by EWilloughby The Stars Hold No Truths by EWilloughby
A drawing that started bitter and emo ended up expressing more a sense of curiosity and hope. I'm glad it turned out that way.

A Deinonychus stargazes, pondering life, the universe and everything.

Maybe that asteroid would come around earth again in about 60 million years and actually hit it.

Actually, no, Deinonychus lived around 60 million years before the Cretaceous extinction. =p

Awesome work. I love the starry background and the purples and reds in the sky. Dinosaurs and starry night skies, two of my favorite things. :D =P

The Conte crayons are working out so amazingly well for you. I always thought you had insane talent with even just pencils, but this is beyond that.

The background and the subject are blended naturally together...no lines and it doesn't look like one was just slapped in front of the other like it sort of did when you started with them.

I think she wants a random Betelgeusian to pop down and take her away. =P

Or maybe she just wants a gin and tonic.
