The scene is of a velociraptor father taking his hatchings out for their first hunt-- their prey? The very formidable katydid, of course.
Hope ya'all enjoy,
Really good, that artwork.
It is great to see artists here drawing these wonderful creatures correctly, rather than like the stupid, inaccurate pop culture versions. These are real animals, we do not know 100% what they looked like, but we know the rough look. People should treat the real animal with more respect rather than shrugging them off as not scary and going with the media invention.
Real theropods had feathers and they were beautiful creatures and not just some ugly monster that films always churn out.
This soooo reminds of this...hmm.. thingy from an old TV show with baby alligators catching katydids. the narrator said: Katydid.. katy-dead! *nom*
I've never been one for scientific accuracy in my art, but I had known when I drew this picture that velociraptors were roughly the size of large dogs, I included large grasshoppers to give some idea of scale, but I suppose I made the trees a bit too small, which might give the impression of human-sized Deinonychus, Oooops.
I hoped you liked it, it was my first dino picture I had drawn in years up till that time, as well as being my first raptor pic. I look back at it now and see all of the errors I made. It was my first digital painting though, and so, it will always have a place in my heart
Thanks again for the info and all the best,
Carpal tunnel. Sorry, dude.
OH! There's a tablet that can help you with that. It's in the Genius Pen category I think.
this surely tooked a long time to draw, respect!
wish I could draw like this . . .
Amazing job! (this is your first digital painting? Seriously?)
Sorry about your carpal tunnel, but the details are really gorgeous!
Sorry for my late reply,
I really enjoy digital painting. It's not much different than traditional painting, there is a lot less prep time, which I like. I still have the carpal tunnel though. I don't think it will ever go away!
Many thanks again,
Yeah, mostly I do digital art because of the quickness and convenience. I prefer traditional because I feel that I have more control. But in terms of painting... well, I really have almost no sense of color and have had very few experiences with traditional painting, so the undo button comes in handy a lot (although I've been trying to resist the urge to press it every two seconds, recently...)
Can you try one of those special carpal tunnel gloves? I really have no idea what I'm talking about, but I've seen them around...
I like to build up a painting with light washes (transparent layers)using more opaque strokes as the picture progresses. It's amazing how similar digital art is to traditional media, but without the mess.
they were my first Dinos I have drawn in a long time, I thought I would make dinos a little less aggressive. So I tried to make them as cute as I can.
Thanks for the kind words,
I am not really sure where they fit, I like to think of them as bird-like dinosaurs.
They look so natural, just doing what animals do
Thanks for sharing,
I'd like to think that the life for animals in the Mesozoic was kinda like today, relatively peaceful. I wish more folks would show some of the more mundane aspects of a dino's life. I think they are the most interesting.

Must resist... glomping... @_@
