It's finally here!
(Note, this image is depicted at a very, very low resolution. I have another version with resolution over twice as high- enough to see the threads of its feathers and wrinkles on its skin)!
The velociraptor, made famous by Jurassic Park's mislabeled Deinonychus, is here depicted at the correctly proportioned scale using a metric ruler tool.
I must admit, the velociraptor actually looks a LOT bigger than I expected it, and its claws in particular are a LOT bigger than I expected too.
The plumage is slightly improvised- as although we know the velociraptor had quill knobs in its arms, we don't know about the precise plumage it had. As a result, I depicted it with bare 'hands' and feet. Leg plumage similar to a d'Uccle hen I think is easilly possible, due to the abundance of theropods with wing-feathers on their legs. And bare limbs around the feet is like an eagle (another animal that grapples with prey using extra-bare feet). Admittedly this may prove unlikely from later evidence; one reason being that many other related therapod groups have been confirmed in fossil evidence to have feathers leading up to their fingers, which velociraptor has an anatomical similarity to (but a fairly different behavioural use for them).
This has been sitting in my backlog for a while, as my university semester was exceptionally busy and I didn't have the time to do the final points of research to clarify the size and proportions.
And for some reason (didn't do it on purpose) the man in the picture ended up looking slightly like a self-portrait; but meh- good enough.
