An illustration of one of the most famous little archosauriformes ever. My original idea was to color it in a manner somewhat similar to a young crocodilian, but that ended up feeling too on-the-nose. So I went instead with a look roughly inspired by both the Guatemalan Beaded Lizard and military camouflage. This is rough, though, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to go back and mess with it.
Those giant eyes were great fun to draw.
