Raptors II by Mr--Jack Raptors II by Mr--Jack
Day 21!
I've been wanting to do something like this for ages! More dinosaurs, yes yes.
I really should have worked out the forms a bit better in the sketch stage before I started painting I think, but anyway... Also I'm not sure if their tails were actually that flexible, but hey! Getting there.
Heavily based off an Egyptian Vulture colour- and feather-wise here.

They look wonderful. I also was reminded of Egyptian Vultures before reading the comments. It's nice to see Dino art based on real-life color patterns on birds living in similar environments and not psychedelic colors.

And they're freakin' adorable.

Omigod They're so fluffy :squee: He's gonna eat the butterfly :rofl:

Amazing job! Love the colours! They look so good in Egyptian Vulture clothing :D You're painting style is amazing too!

Also, they're tails weren't nearly that flexible, but the flexibility of them really looks good in this piece. :lol:

Their tails were actually held rigid by rows of tendons, nonetheless, this is a very nice piece

You know you're a bird nerd when you see this and immediately think, "Wow! That looks like it's based on an Egyptian vulture!"

If we look birds today, the tail is not really flexible. I think it could be more straight but your vision of these raptors is really wonderful and interesting. I like the evolution of this idea that dinosaurs wear feathers...

Well the tail bones of a bird - [link] - are drastically reduced , what we see as the tail is basically all feathers, while raptors had a lengthy tail - [link]
The issue is mostly how rigid it was (though I'm assuming maybe more rigid than I have here, I think)

The tail of a raptor was stiff vertically except for a section near its base, but horizontally it was flexible, so the way you drew it is quite realistic.

Cool creatures, reminds me of a drawing I saw many years ago, of a prehistoric bird that kinda looked like a crossing of an ostrich and an eagle. Somehow the sharp beak was even scarier than a mouthful of teeth.

The forms do look a little clumsy but the texture of the feathers is nice, maybe a few too many. Overall awesome work your almost at the end of the month all these pictures have been very inspiring.
