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.
