Hello. I'm finally deciding to get to and get involved with this forum, and my first work in progress is this velociraptor.
I'm heavily influenced by the works of Stan Winston, especially his Dinosaur work (though I suppose "Crash" was more behind the actual initial concept sketches?)
I've jotted down a little illustration a few years ago and decided to add some realism to it. The style I'm trying to get is a blend between a semi realistic Jurassic Park style Velociraptor, but giving it a more cartoony edge over all.
This is very much a work in progress, but currently I'm focusing mostly on where to go with the background at the moment.
Suggestions much appreciated
