Velociraptor by DeEtta Velociraptor by DeEtta
Had a lot of fun doing this one. Feathers are much easier for me to paint than scales for some reason. Looked at a variety of different birds of prey for the colors and feather references, but I think my fav reference was the eye, which i got from a roadrunner. Growing up there were tons of roadrunners around and I had no idea how cool their eyes were!

Medium: Photoshop

A real stunner, surprised I have not found this one yet. The scientific accuracy is spot on, with a properly feathered head, which is rare even in the better drawings. Art wise it is obviously sublime, probably one of the best ive seen.

That's funny feathers seem like they'd be so much harder! The look amazing though! :clap:
