Velociraptors and mahakalas.

It was meant to be just a sketch, but I ended up adding more details eventually:P

The background was referenced.

Nice design. I would personally give them thicker necks, duller colors and thinner lips, but that's just how I draw them.

I love the choice of colors you chose for the raptors, (I don't know if this is correct, but I love the details of the females' plumage coloration being brown and tan unlike the male's bright and blue-tints plumage - Nice touch!), and the addition of feathers make them all look glorious <3

Looks better than a lot of museum displays I've seen :D

By the way do velociraptors prefer light meat or dark meat...and what sort of wine do you serve with dinosaur?

Really first rate picture . Just a thought though , I imagine thier arm feathers being able to easily blend in with back ground with the underside being very bright and colorful when held up for mating displays .

That's one of the best Velociraptors I've seen! Reminds me of James Gurney.

Wow... I can't help but getting a feel of Charles R. Knight in it.
Very good, very natural. Less of a "prehistoric beast" and more of an "animal in its environment" work. Much like all the good paleoart should be.

Hahaha you say it was meant to be a SKETCH...?
Gosh I wish I would end up more ofte to make such amazing pieces when I just wanna sketch something... *____*
I love those sharp yet ..."picturesque" strokes like they were made with real brush...
That I always loved to see from digital artists, and prefer over smoothed details. This kees the picture so fresh and alive... :heart:

Thanks a lot! :hug: Personally, I feel the same about painterliness in digital pictures.
Overly smoothed and polished paintings often look too plastic or dead:)

Przyjemne, aczkolwiek widać "referencyjność" tła.
Przy okazji, widziałaś kiedyś film "The future is wild"? Jeśli nie polecam, bardzo fajna produkcja, jest do obejrzenia także na YT.

Just a sketch...and it looks nearly photographic. XDD It's a very lovely, lovely 'sketch'. Strong choice of composition, and great attention to detail - especially on the skin of the dead dinosaur. I feel like I could touch it. =D
