Keiriko's Snowball Effect by Tyrin-Claw Keiriko's Snowball Effect by Tyrin-Claw
FULL VIEW OR FEEL THE WRATH OF THE DOOM WRATH'S DOOM!



Everyone, this is Keiriko. Keiriko, meet everyone.

Keiriko: Whatever...hi.

He's my alter-ego, the true form of my spirit, and a Utahraptor. As time passed and he remained locked away within my body, his saurian body began to take on more human-like traits, most obviously the hair and opposable thumbs.

Because Keiriko is such a new character, I haven't been able to give him a complete personality or any kind of wardrobe yet. I'll work on sketching some ideas, and the next painting of him will include more characteristics.

Anatomically speaking, I looked at some pictures of the raptors in Jurassic Park to be sure I was on key, but I took some liberties of my own, such as the mouth shape and adding more anthro features. However, I can't seem to draw the killing claw very well...it always looks weird.

This new style of colouring and shading that I used works very well. Kudos to those great people who make tutorials for deviantART and, ultimately, me. :aww:

EDIT 12-4-05: Forgot to color in the line in the middle of his hair. Also added some snow around his toes and fingers so it looked like he was actually in the snow, instead of hovering above it.


Base lineart done in pencil on printer paper. [View]
Final lineart and colouring done in Photoshop Elements 3.0.

Both of us hold traits corresponding to that of the raptor. One can even say that both of us have a raptor counterpart, or spirit, as one could interpret it.
