Stare at this EVERY DAY at my desk at work, and I love it to bits: just as much as I did the moment I first laid eyes on it. :)

i like it a lot! the detail and it shows that you put effort into it, feathers tend to be a pain don't they?

very nicely done. I love the detail in the scales!
I've been working on a raptor sculpture of my own, but it's nothing compaired to this.
great work :clap:

But raptors were supposed to already have wings with their hands and the back there's the... the...
[System failure]

Nice job with the textures and stuff.
looks like... did you paint each of the scales individually? You're crazy, man.

That is why it is fantasy. It was not supposed to be accurate.

Dry brushing, it's the way.
draculahunter7 Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2008
Don't get me wrong - I still like it.
The fading and all that is great. I can't seem to do that too well on my stuff. *shrug*
Keep trying I guess.

Dry brushing is a really helpful technique for blending. Sometimes I use watered down colours and then dry brush over it.

That is amazing. I love it.
Fantastic sculpting and painting job.. I am amazed! I can never do well with Sculpy :(
But it makes me really happy when I see someone who is amazing at it :D

The nose/snout could be a little more pointed and narrow. This looks like the snout of a T-rex. I dont know if it is suppost to look like that but it still is REALLY good!

if i may ask,do you use brush or air brush to color your works? and what acrylic paints do you use (",)
nice finish on the raptor!
gylkille Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2005  Professional Traditional Artist
Thanks a lot. :)

I used a brushes to paint my sculptures. Random sizes and textures. There was a lot of course dry brushing going on with this one.

I usualy Folk Art and Apple Barrel acrylics. No specific. Just which ever one I manage to buy when I go to the store. :)
