Animation Time! - Triceratops Skeleton

Today's Inspiration:
Every great painting I see, I say to myself: “Why didn't I think of that?”... But that is what keeps it fun and keeps you interested always thinking: “The next painting will be a good one”!

I loved to draw as a child and I love to draw now. I tell people that art chose me, I didn't choose art!
