Shame, that Quetzalcoatlus as well as those Pteranodon are taken straight from other people, the least you could do is credit them and claim "inspiration." 

Quetz from Vlad Konstantinov (swordlord3d.deviantart.com/), Pteranodon from Christoffer Gertz Bech (cegebe.wordpress.com/2011/09/2…), and I believe I've seen that other pterosaur somewhere as well...


EDIT: That other pterosaur looks to be a Preondactylus by Raul Martin (www.deviantart.com/users/outgo…), thanks to Stolpergeist's comments.

Alright, where are their feathers? The poor, cold, naked raptors :C Also, the wrists and digits are facing the wrong way. They were grounded birds. Their arms were rotated like a bird's. Their snouts were also thinner.


Here is an anatomically correct reference:

That's beautiful.
But I don't see raptors, only monsters ^^

Raptors shoud be feathered. It's been 20 years since we discovered it. They should have wings and hands facing each other, not "bunny like".
It's like doing a tiger with scales and wings. It's not a tiger.

But. This. Is. So. Beautiful.

However good to see that you did not completely trace the Papo model for the Parasaurolophus group by posing the animals a bit, yet a fair bit of credit should go to Studio Oxmox for their Deinonychus model.

Upon further notice I also realized that you used Pteranodons from an oil painting by Christoffer Gertz Bech (cegebe.files.wordpress.com/201…) and a Preondactylus by Raúl Martín, currently copyrighted by the AMNH (d.ibtimes.co.uk/en/full/137203…).

The small mammals in the foreground seem to be drawn by Mauricio Antón, though I might be mistaken.

Please mention the original artists in the painting description on your social media, if only out of respect for the hours of work they themselves put into their work.

Reconstructing extinct life is after all a hard process that not only involves a creative process but days of research prior to that and thus it is a shame that scientific illustrators often don't get taken serious as artists and sadly as a result get their work taken without permission rather often.

No hard feelings, though it is rather indelicate if you plan to sell prints of this particular piece.

Having heard these details, I'm quite disappointed in this artist for not at least mentioning he used other artists' work. It makes me wonder just how much other stuff he's used without permission/stolen.

Lovely composition, however it is worth pointing out that the two Quetzalcoatlus in the background are the intellectual property of the artists Raúl Martín (www.raul-martin.net/) and Vlad Konstantinov (:iconswordlord3d:).

They probably commented on the inaccuracy. These are outdated depictions and they did not look like that at all, especially the raptors.

Well, inaccurate for "velociraptors". Great fits for Utahraptors, which were the original inspirations for the 1993 film. 

It's just that nobody (then, or now) knows what a Utahraptor is (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utahrapt…).

Seriously though, beautiful work.

They call them velociraptors in the movies, though.
And these are still pretty inaccurate for utahraptors. As I said, all dromaeosaurs were covered in fuzz. A common mistake are also those "zombie hands", while they weren't even able to turn their hands like that. The anatomy doesn't allow that. They held them parallel to each other. (scienceblogs.com/notrocketscie…)

it was confirmed that a lot of their species have hair or feathers or something like that right?
Reply
:iconxen0w0lf:
Xen0w0lf Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, most of them were feathered. Pretty much all dromaeosaurs (which includes raptors) were covered in fur-like proto feathers and had bigger feathers on their arms and tail. There's enough evidence to confirm that even big theropods like t-rex were partially covered in dino fuzz as well.
But beside the feather thing, the anatomy itself here is wrong as well.
It's an amazing piece nonetheless, even if these animals are very inaccurate.

Actually, dromaeosaurs were one of the groups with pennaceous body feathers, like modern birds.

Very well done!  I assume this is more of a Jurassic Park style as the raptors have no fur/hair?  If so that's fine.  I love the fog and lighting you have in the background, it really makes the Parasaurolophus pop out, yet lets me believe they really are in the space.

Bravo!

Eh yeah, it's hard to get behind sometimes, it can be done right (I look at Todd Marshall for reference) but if you're ever hired for professional Scientific Illustration, get ready to deal with it. lol.  Keep up the good work though!

"Muh scaly lizards" aside, there are a huge amount of glaring inaccuracies with these "raptors". I suggest you do some quick research on dromaeosaur anatomy that doesn't come from monster movies.
