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.

Awesome. I'm loving the scale detail, as well as the color scheme, eye, and feather crest. Nice work.

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.
