Keiriko's Snowball Effect by TyRivin Keiriko's Snowball Effect by TyRivin
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.

Oh. Ah. Well, the description of this deviation is really old and outdated, so don't go by that. =P

Interesting concept. I really like the anthropomorphic/humanlike qualities this has without actually physically changing. Raptors in the snow...sounds like fun! :D

TyRivin Featured By Owner May 1, 2006
Well, his hands changed (thumbs! :ninja:) but yeah, he was supposed to be just barely anthro. :D

Thanks!

This one has to be my Fav, the pose is great and there is nothing so unsettling as a raptor with a snowball :fuzzydemon:

You seem to do a lot of research before you paint, that's always a good idea ^^

*throws snowball* there was snow in here a couple of days ago, but we aren't allowed to have a snowballfight at school :(
I like the raptor alter-ego idea :D

TyRivin Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2006
Well, the alter-ego idea perished as Keiriko's story grew. D:

I haven't had a snowball fight in ages; there isn't enough snow here. It would be interesting to have one at school though. XD

Thank you for the :+fav: as well. :)

Well you know, they're basically six-foot chickens with steak knives on their feet. :giggle:
[But a lot cuter than chickens!]

He's awesome! I love his little shock of hair. I might have to do fanart of him.. :plotting:

Nice job with his anatomy over all! He strongly resembles the Jurassic Park raptors. If you want to positivly nerdly accuracy, though, you might want to check out 's "How to Draw Raptors" tutorial: [link] It's fantastic. ^_^

Thank you. :aww:

Yeah, I was looking at pictures of the JP raptors when I drew the lineart. I figured they would be the easiest to copy. =P

If you seriously want to do fanart of him, you should probably wait until I do another painting of him, because the next one will be more comprehensive. He has several things, like a collar and tattoo, that weren't decided upon until after this was completed.

And thanks also for that link. I searched for it before but couldn't find it. ^^;

Excellent work my friend. I've viewed your gallery a little, and it's interesting to see a different form of Anthro besides cats and dogs. Raptors = Awesome. xD

Your technique is getting much better. I dislike that border and that font though.

Ignore the font. =P

And yeah, the border is weird. I need to come up with a good one still.
