Velociraptor. Fully arm-feathered as the newly discovered of ulna bumps for quill attachment demonstrate.

Yes, we were right from the beginning

    It’s good to see that you’ve updated your Velociraptor. I can now say that your Velociraptor is the best I’ve seen.

    BTW, out of curiosity, does your Velociraptor’s coloration count as countershading (like that of a coyote)? Many thanks in advance.

      Coyote is as good guess as any other small predator… but I’d like to see it more as influenced by a Secretary Bird or something like that… anything as as long as it is believable! The rest of the colouring is imagination… it also helps the fact that I keep experimenting with everything I see at the level of colour (even from fashion magazines!)… but I never forget that these are animals, not fashion designers.

        I know what you mean. Other than having a blue face instead of a red face, its coloration is very Secretary Bird-like. I was just saying coyote b/c that’s what comes to mind 1st when I think of countershading.

    Hey Luis Rey I am a big fan of yours! I was wondering why you always scale the legs so far up on bigger raptors, wouldn’t it make more sense for them to be naked like on an ostrich?
