Marker Sketch of Fritz

Fritz is an autonomous, sentient drone called a "hoverhead" based on the design of a ceratopsian, from Dinotopia: First Flight (1999). Note that his trim is dented and he's missing the chrome ring around his right eye.

For those of you who like to paint old, dented things, the "Dead Vehicle Challenge" is going strong with lots of great entries already. Deadline is the end of the month. Check it out on the Facebook event page.
Get a copy of the expanded edition Dinotopia: First Flight  which has a behind-the-scenes supplement for no extra charge.

For some reason Fritz makes me think of the Millennium Falcon—another somewhat beaten-up starship junker of Star Wars fame. If only it were real and in a museum, it would make a sort of killer ultimate model for the broken vehicle contest.

Yes, the Millennium Falcon! Good comparison.

Thank you, James, for reminding me of the joy that is First Flight. You now have more Dinotopia-related posts so far this year than for all of 2016 (You know I keep track).
