Sunstrike Evolves by Droemar Sunstrike Evolves by Droemar
I don't know if any of you have seen the Natural History Museum dinosaur plushes, but I got one of little teeny ones at the Austin zoo. He's absolutely adorable. He sits with me at my computer and when I'm editing my manuscript. I'm very weird about stuffed animals. (Buying the little one made me order the 14-inch one online, but I was very disappointed by him. He was lumpy in the face and not at all cute.) So, I still have that dinosaur story in the far back of my head, and played eround with the idea of Sunstrike being a droemeasaur (a veloci- or utahraptor, or a deinonychus.) Incidentally, if any wonder, that is where my online name comes from. I LOVE dinosaurs!

I drew this completely freehand, with that gestural building technique I used to draw Fen. It turned out very, very good in my opinion. I went for cel-shaded cause I hadn't done it in a while.

The background, incidentally, is not mine. I humbly sire my source at: [link]

I thought I subconsciously recognized the markings of this creature. I bought a small Utahraptor plushie for my friend from the Natural History Museum in London. ^..^ They're most adorable - and so is your depiction of them.

Very cool. I love the shading :D Tho the background looks like it's been taken from a screenshot of a movie (like the lion king or something). If it has I suggest u give credit to the source of the image or u could get into a bit of strife over it ^^ I don't want to come across as being mean, but I'd hate to see an artist as good as urself get into trouble over it :)
