Papo Raptor Sketches by thazumi Papo Raptor Sketches by thazumi
Some raptor sketchies I did practicing posing, expression and character design. :) I called him Papo after the company who does those dinosaur figurines. They are really great for sketching reference!

I wanted to work with a bit more realism here as usually but still have this cartoony touch. However I studied some raptor anatomy, but this is far from anatomically correct as I added in my own inputs there. I wanted to give him a strong anthropomorphic feeling even though only the hands and facial features are really humanoid.

Bay far the most difficult poses were the ones on the bottom left (perspective and [semi]frontview) :)

Somehow this piece communicates to me a certain lacking of intelligence coupled with a pathetic attention span!  :laughing:

Fantastic expressions, I can feel him moving!

Edit:  Actually in the top most right one he appears to be communicating with someone, so it made me look harder and he at least seems more intelligent in some of these than I originally thought that first glance.

My goal was to create nice poses and expressions based on acceptable anatomy and not really give him personality (yet). So you're right that psychological aspects are really lacking here. Yeah the one top right is supposed to talk to someone which I implied with the "SUP". :P

The Papo Tyranno/Raptor/Spino are all awesome figures <3
Their raptor's not too realistic, but it's still an awesomely detailed figure and you drew it so lovably here <3

I guess I just gave him lotsa details so I called him "realistic"^^

Well yeah realistic detail is not mutually exclusive with realistic anatomy ^^

Like CGI films and games - Quite often involve things that aren't realistic but are realistically detailed and whatnot x3
