... 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.
