So I'm at school bored and I decide to draw Linheraptor, which apperently I have a thing for. And I managed to get some of Rod's style inot this one. I want to find my own unique style.

enjoy.

OK, here goes my first ever critique.
Not sure exactly what a Linheraptor is, other than a dinosaur in the 'raptor' family. The look is fairly common, as such, with the elongated face and eyes that look more forward than many other dinosaurs. Also, as has been discovered in recent years ( within the past 10-12, I believe) they were covered at least partially with spines / quills / feathers. You captured that unique feature rather well, I believe. Also, I think you caught the underlying musculature well on the lower jaw and neck, especially for something you drew while just being bored.

As for style, take a look at what you've done that may have another person's style in it,select what you like, and incorporate it into your style. Don't be afraid to combine aspects of others into yours, because, inevitably, no matter how many people's styles you see in you work, eventually it will evolve and mesh together to form a new and unique style that is yours alone.

No problem. As I said, that was my first critique, so I hope it helped at least a little.

You're welcome.

Side note: When I realized my own style was somewhat unique I was so happy, so I speak from expereince...

I like it. He looks like he's been in a fight with those thorns on his face. All the shading looks consistent, as does the musculature. Good work.
