Crow and her Brave Dinner by Psithyrus Crow and her Brave Dinner by Psithyrus
Hi,

This is my first trade with BlackRaptor :iconblackraptor:

Crow, a young Deinonychus, stumbles across a strange creature (a portly possom) in a tree and it shows no fear of the brightly colored raptor. Its fur has a strange scent and its seems awfully mellow! :)

Hope you all like my fluffy raptor. For reference, I used may drawings of crow from wonderful paleo artists on dA.

Ohh, my apologies, I almost forgot to mention that Crow is a character belonging to and copyright (c) of BlackRaptor.

Thanks,

Blair

I cannot express how much I love this! I ABSOLUTELY love raptors, and once in a while I come across someone's art of one that I cannot stop looking at. This is one of those. It's cute, beautiful, and amazing!

I derive a lot of inspiration from many folks like yourself on dA, it's a great community. I didn't draw much until I joined.

Thanks again for the wonderfully kind words,

Humbly yours,

Thanks Thomas,

I was very fortunate to see your drawing and use it as a great reference for color and patterns. Though, your picture is much cuter than mine. Love the idea of a lobster biting her tongue. Squuuuaaawwwk!

Thanks again,

Cheers,

I'm lucky many great artists have drawn Crow, they gave me some wonderful ideas when painting her feathers.

There's only one dinonychus around here with iridescent blue feathers! I recognised Crow straight away. =) I've never seen her drawn with such careful detail on both the feathers and scales, though. This is very impressive and I'm sure she's delighted with it!

Thanks good buddy,

I really enjoyed drawing her, and looking at Crow drawings from other artists really helped me learn more about raptor anatomy. I'll soon start drawing Ixerin for Emily. I have just one cute dino picture to finish up.


Thanks again for the nice comments,

Cheers,

Blair

I love drawing iridescent colours, though they can be a bit challenging. I was amazed as I drew Crow ow she actually started to look like a crow, especially if you squint at the monitor. hehe.

Thanks,

I tried to be faithful to the rendering of Crow's iridescent feathers, I kinda incorporated the ideas from many other artists that have drawn Crow. I hope I did good.

Whoa! That was quick. And this is lovely! I absolutely adore the expressions, and your technique on the iridescence. The markings on the display feathers are reminiscent of the blue jay. :)

Great work! :heart:

Ohhh goodie,

I' so pleased you liked my picture of Crow, I tried to draw her very seriously, like a mean ol'raptor, but the cuteness came out. I hope that's okay. I really enjoyed drawing Crow, there were so many drawings of her, it didn't take long to come up with ideas. I put the pudgey possum in the scene for comic relief.

Thanks and no rush on my picture, but I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Best wishes,

Blair

I think this fits her personality much better, actually. ^^

And I should say, this is one of if not my one all time favorite drawing of Crow by another artist. Seriously. :heart:

She is quite colorful for a female raptor. Maybe I should have given her long curved eyelashes also. hehe!

It didn't take long to color, I kinda kept the background pretty simple though, just tinkering with copying layers and objects in Photoshop.

It's hard to be anatomically correct when anthropomorfizing expressions but you nailed it very well on Crow. I love your style with the feathers and I really think dromaeosaurs might have had these awesome colorations at least during mating season.

All in all awesome work XD
