I want to do it. But realistically I know that I don't have the time to give the love and care a raptor (VELOCIRAPTOR!) deserves :(. So here I am living vicariously through artage! I know... her hand is about to get ROCKED.
And here are some close ups. Mostly, for anyone's that was curious - I wanted to show how loose you can be when painting while still giving the impression of detail. I remember I used to *slave* away at details - nothing was left unrendered and unblended. Though I think it's important to be able to create hyper-clean-detail when it's called for, for the purpose of getting ideas down on paper, structured looseness is a good skill to practice :). I'm still working on it >_>!
