As promised here’s an update. At this point I’m giving better outlines to shapes. For instance the spikes on the neck. There are three types (see close-up):
1- The ones that are an extension of the crest. Just decoration/reproductive display (so this is a male Indocerathomimus).
2- The ones starting right after the crest. Those have the orange/grey coloring you see of the third one from left to right. The coloring is to display that they are poisonous (they are inspired on the reef stone fish).
3- The third row are more like blades.
I also defined better the feathers with the orange tip on the neck, the ones that are around the bony stumps that work as plating on the back (smaller feathers there), and the larger ones on the body (just starting to work on them).
Better outlining of the scales on the head and the protruding teeth.
This fusing is from the darker indoraptor, so I will add the orange stripes on the back later on. Coloring will be mostly black/grey and orange, with some brownish red accents (like on the crest).
And of course… the painting of all those feathers (gosh… what did I get myself into! hehehe nah, I wanna use this illustration to practice using my new drawing digital screen, and I have some time this month to do this. I think after next month, I will have next to no time for this and maybe the game as well )
Anyway, motivational feedback is always welcome!
