Velociraptor mongoliensis v2 by nachtwulf Velociraptor mongoliensis v2 by nachtwulf
... I have to wonder if I shouldn'tve called it a vel-aqua-raptor, but... nertz. It was originally supposed to be /green/. I guess I coulda changed it, but it would've been too much effort, I think.

Incidentally, yes, I painted every single flippin' scale by hand. I don't think I've spent that long on something for /months/. Paint, paint, paint. I estimate it took me /around/ 15-20 hours, but I could be a little off.

Done entirely in photoshop.

Really, I'd give a far more productive comment, but I'm too busy being a crazy dinosaur fangirl.
Let's just say that I agree wholeheartedly with Orbyss on all counts; Especially the feathers. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for that.

.......I love this.

Hey! Someone who actually knows/used the species name? And didn't make a Jurassic Park raptor? Amazing. *Applauds*
I actually really like the color. The whole thing is very stylized. And hooray for taking a long time on every scale, I feel your pain... or rather my pain that is similar to yours... maybe... you know, in the hand/arm area? Anyway...
Great job all around and thank you SO much for adding the feathers. Refreshing to see. ;) (Wink)

Oooh, that's just beautiful... gorgeous work on the scales and the stone ring around his head. It's pretty clear you put a lot of effort into this one -- it shows in the finished piece. Keep up the great work!
