Exquisite by Julio-Lacerda Exquisite by Julio-Lacerda
SO. MANY. FEATHERSS.

This is Linheraptor exquisitus, a lesser-known cousin of fellow Velociraptor. I wanted it to look particularly bird-like here, to further show how a dromaeosaur can look avian but still beautiful, believable and yet not quite a bird.

The feather patterns are inspired by things like quails and willets, but I tried to make them look more shaggy and 'primitive', almost like down.

I also gave it 'lips'. Not quite sure about it, just an experience.

Also, thanks everyone who answered my question about wing folding! The links and responses were very useful here.

 Sua arte é incrível! admiro a forma como você retrata as criaturas pré-históricas, como animais comuns e não como monstros, como são mais comumente mostrados(não que eu não goste dessa forma de retratação). Mais uma vez ótimo trabalho!:)

Are you sure you didn't go back in time and capture a photo XD This looks amazing, I like how you make it seem life-like in the colors and stuff.

This Linheraptor looks awesome! Love

I guess, this was the way, the Maniraptora did look like ...  I love the "correct" birdlike posture of the forelimbs.
