A piece that was inspired by Michael Crichton's audio-book "Jurassic World". I had a sketch for the piece done ages ago, finally had time to finish it. Check out my ArtStation for more images and a step-by-step process: www.artstation.com/artwork/OaZ…

was this also inspired by Jurassic park- the scene where the kids are in the dinning room and eating jelly and the rapters got in.

veloceraptor yes :) i went with allosaurus instead since they fit the description from the book better

Real veloceraptors are the size of medium sized dogs.  Not very intimaditing.

Very feathery.  I've seen a picture of accurate raptors that have patterns similar to birds of prey.  Like there's a picture of a dakotaraptor that looks like an osprey.

Ah, I remember the scene you're depicting here. It's where Grant throws a baby Velociraptor at the adults chasing him and the kids to distract them. 
Nice to see how you've visualized the Crichton velociraptors, I had them in mind way differently :)

That's the one. Even though it's a little dark, it's one of my favourite scenes from the book :) I just really like how it plays out not the way you'd expect. 
Thank you! :)

My favorite probably is the Tyrannosaurus escape, it's way more darker and scarier than in the movie. 
Yeah, I also like how the raptors are quite different from the ones in the movie, the designs in the book have a way more hybrid look.
