I love dinosaurs!!!! I think this ones awesome although his back legs are a little stubby
I can just picture a raptor dancing around like that! lol! Great job! Kimberly Raptor Price Riley
replies: "I was mostly going for a stiff look, like he was trying to show off. I'll keep that in mind next time I draw a raptor. Thanks."

I like his head, seems weird to me to have feathers on a dino, but it still comes off pretty natural looking Kimberly Raptor Price Riley
replies: "Not wierd at all. They are starting to find related raptors with feathers. Lots of feathers, even flight feathers. Should be interesting what we find out in the next few years."

Yay! Feathery dinosaurs!! *Hugs* Yep, lol, it kinda does look like it's dancing around... Lovely detail. Kimberly Raptor Price Riley
replies: "Thanks! hehe. I love little raptors, the are just too cute to pass up sketching. I think I'm going to become stuck on them for as long as I've been stuck on dragons. That might spell trouble, but it'll be fun regardless."

Look at this pretty little male strutting his stuff! (Atleast I assume he's a he) What a lovely study indeed! A few questions and alittle critique before the fun stuff: What sort of raptor is this? He looks alittle porky for a Velo' so I'm thinking maybe more of a Utahraptor or a deinonichysaur...(just ignore the raptor obessed commenter eh?) And does, since the tail isn't here in full, he/she have any lovely tail feathers? A little fan perhaps like his/her winged cousin the acheoptryx? Right, on the the things to fix up, the fingers are in correct propotion, but the closest arm (ie, his left) the middle finger seems to be under the other two, which isn't the way it would go...the fingers also seem alittle large. The feet are nice but they seem almost unnaturally stiff but...that's what you were going for you say?
Anyway lovely work "Raptor". I'll be cruising by your other works I'm sure! Kimberly Raptor Price Riley
replies: "Actually, he's based on a deinonychus. The velo's head would be much thinner, the Utah.. eh, we really don't have a good skeleton of those, at least not yet.. the deinonichsaur was actually very different looking than the other raptors. It's head was larger and more filled out than say the little velo and it's 'killing' claw was also smaller, on average, than the other raptors. Yeah, shadding/scanning kinda made his fingure seem strange, but there's not much it's okay. And yes, he looks stiff cause he's strutting, hehe. Birds get really stiff when they are showing off, even walking around stiff legged. And I'm not sure if he has a tuff of feathers on the end of his tail or not. He might, it would be cute. lol. Thanks for stopping in."

I like this a lot, you can draw dinos really well! I love dinosaurs too, but for some reason I never draw them.... Kimberly Raptor Price Riley
replies: "Give drawing them a shot. I'm sure you would be great. A good reference book for them are bird books and books by a guy named Gregory S. Paul. He is very good at drawing the bones of the dinos and often has lots and lots of drawings in his books. For that matter, I get a lot of dragon ideas from dinos. It's fun to look at all the different body and scull shapes, lots of great ideas in there."

This is my faveourite pic of urs iv looked at so far (but that's not to say the others aren't good!) But I just love the detail you've got here, and the shading. Rock on! (Soz - random outburst, maybe more suitable would be: Rap on!)
