Meet Dippy! A giant with a heart of gold, life is never boring when this big guy is around. Nothing is out of reach! He’ll stick his nose into everything until every mystery is solved.
Happy Holidays! I hope you’ve been having a joyful and restful holiday season, or at least as restful as the holidays can get! 🙂
Skittles wishes you a Merry Christmas, Hannukah, Boxing Day, Winter Solstice or any holiday you celebrate at this time of year, and a big welcome to the year 2021!
My dear Hubby gave me an iPad and apple pen for Christmas this year, so of course I had to start playing with it right away. Skittles wanted to be part of the fun, so of course she jumped in and spread tissue paper everywhere. 😀
Hmm, her colors seem to change a bit when I paint her…ah well, let’s just say they’re color morph explorations. 😀 In any case, this was a very messy speed paint done in under three hours all spread out, with no reference, so it’s pretty sloppy. It was fun though, and I think this new tool will revolutionize how I do things! You can see a quick video of my process over on my Instagram. If you’re interested, I can figure out how to post those procreate videos here too. 🙂
It’s been a busy holiday season this year, but I’ve still been sneaking in some fun wintery doodles this month. 😀 I hope you enjoy the doodle dump!
Below are a few pictures of what the kids got for Christmas. I always love Doug Watson’s sculpts. Not all of Safari’s models are sculpted by him, but if there is a particular model I really love it is most likely a Doug Watson model. So lately I’ve been doing the behind the scenes research to find out which ones are sculpted by him. 🙂
“Santa’s elves” created accessories to go along with each prehistoric creature. It was a ton of fun to do some sculpting again, especially with the fish Enchodus, which certainly would’ve been on the menu for Pteranodon. Unfortunately by the time I borrowed it from my little girl she’d dropped it a couple of times, so all the long teeth are missing in some pictures. The only pictures with the teeth still intact were taken inside after dark, before Santa’s elves put it in the stocking, so are a bit fuzzy. That coin is a dime, by the way, so it’s pretty small. 😀
See you next month! I’ll be looking back at the past year and looking forward to the next year this month, and I’ll post all about my plans for 2021 on February 1st. 🙂
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Coming Feb. 1st…
Why, oh why must everyone call her ugly? I really don’t know. She may not be winning any beauty contests, but she’s a real sweet heart with anyone she meets. 🙂
Share your guess in the comments! She’ll be one of the critters over on the critter page. 🙂

I might be a bit late on this, but I’m grateful for bringing back Dippy. The fish prey is an awesome feature and I love how you have the newer Safari Allosaurus. Apparently, it looks like Bella is next, I’d love to see how things are going with her.
Great, I’m glad you like it! 😀 Thank you for stopping by. 🙂
Imagine getting bite by Enchodus

I can. Google the “Payara Vampire Fish”, which is a pretty good modern analog of an Enchodus. I think that you’ll be pleased with the results you find.
That is one gnarly fish! I looked it up, and the pictures are potentially nightmare inducing lol. Very cool. 😀
