All Us Raptors - flats by Horus-Goddess All Us Raptors - flats by Horus-Goddess
[edit] I just noticed I need to add the zipper under Masurao's kneepad things on his left pant leg. lol. It was something else I had forgotten when I drew this initially. lol. I'm too tired to do it now... will do it later. zzzzz :dies:

Thought I might as well submit this in progression shots for the hell of it lol. Since I'm really freakin' tired, I will not be saying too much.. but I might come back and edit this more later.

Some updates since the [lineart version] are, I fixed Zetsumei's right foot- now the sickle claw is on the correct side. X3 And obviously I have the flat colors done for this so far. I'll be putting in a BG towards the end probably or maybe next time I sit and work on this. I wanna set interesting lighting to try something new since my lights and darks are usually so black and white (as in, normal nothin' special). I wanna put them on a rocky cliff type thing within a jungle somewhere. I'll probably make the image canvas size a lot bigger so I can have a lot of fun with it. This image might be one of those longer projects. :nod:

Anyway for those who don't know, the characters are all my friends' characters except for Masurao (the red one).

From left to right:

+ [Masurao] (=Horus-Goddess (me))
+ [Zetsumei] (~darkenedbloodwings)
+ [Abydos] (=Nanuka)
+ [Ewan] (=RizyuKaizen)

For more info and backstory on these guys and my friends etc, visit the [lineart version]. I don't have the energy to explain it all again lol. I'll probably write more in the final submission of this pic some time later on.

But anyway... there they all are. ^^

time: So far... around 6 hours or more. O_o
completed: October 18th 2005
music: Gackt (a bunch of his albums, too many to name lol)
medium: #2 .05mm lead mechanical pencil for sketch, SuperFine Faber Castell inking pen for lineart, Drawn on 8.5"x11" cardstock (heavy with a smooth finish). Editing and CG done in Photoshop 7.0

Wow! Your friends are talented as well! I wish I was a worthy artist.

I'd love it if you drew my Skydan with your Sachiel. Heehee!

I like the fact that its the girl that have the shortest hair.
JadeFallon Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2011
I've always been fascinated by your raptor races. Not quite anthro...not quite..whatever else :3 I always enjoy seeing more work by you involving them :3
June-sama Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2008
Awesome!!!XD I love the designs for these, very cool^^
OtakuKitsune Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2006
Ooo, I like this. For some reason, there's something I really like about a bunch of people's characters being together and interacting, or just somebody drawng a bunch of their characters interacting. So, needless to say, I like this. Not to mention, all of their designs are wonderfully creative and very appealing to the eye. They all contrast nicely, in my humble opinion. Very nice.
MidnightZero Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2005
Omg! this is so cool! :wow:
vega-chyan Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2005
Wa! So cool! I have to add them both.

Amazing use of placing those characters by all those seperate artists in your own style, I know of all the works associated with every single raptor from the time when people were accusing Rizu down to Darkened Blood wings amazing lineart, and of course who could even begin to forget Nanuka and all the tragic drama queen incidents you two have shared, you have quite an amazing history on this net, I don;t think I could forget you if I tried.

Pearl91 Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2005
Nice colors!
Ewynn Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2005
Flats can be the most tedious part of the colouring. They males are all so smirky, it's cute! They kinda smirk in the way that the guy on the motorcycle smirked when he realized I was checking him out - that cute way that kinda makes you want to pinch their cheeks. Or pat their heads. I really have a thing for running my hands through guys hair, it's so nice! OH man! I saw this guy today who I named Gabrielle because he's so bloody androgynous it's amazing and vaguely scary and he had the most beautiful, shiney auburn hair. It was chin length and so soft and pretty and he had this pale skin and bright turquoise eyes and he was like some angel that had walked out of a painting. It was freakish and amazing and I want to find him again. He totally noticed I was staring at him as I ran on that treadmill and he was running on the track and he'd look at me and then be all like "Ah! I'm not looking!" and look at the ground or in the opposite direction and lick his lips and stuff. SO cute, it was funny. Yup. So the picture's absolutely awesome! Ahahhaah.a.....a.aa....totally got off topic, I'm sorry.
Horus-Goddess Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist

yeah, he sounds like an attractive guy. heehee. I usually dig dark skinned guys, but sometimes I find lighter guys hot too. ^^ He sounds like one of them to me heehee. ^^ Well I hope you see him again. lol. If you can't have them for yourself, at least they're nice to look at lol! :rofl: Well anyhow, thanks for your comment hun. :hug: I enjoyed reading your little random ramble lol.
Archercaptain Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2005

This is VERY, VERY amazing!! The beautiful raptor characters together in a single meet!! Their details and natural poses absolutely blow me away, and yet this is not yet complete!! I am so dazzled so far, but I'll be awe-struck beyond words when the shading and background are added. :D

shadowmagi Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2005  Hobbyist Artist
I love the detail in all their outfits, and how different each one of them is.
( i think zetsumei is my favorite, but i love abydos' leg-gaurds and Ewan's facial markings ^-^ )
RyanMcMurry Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2005  Professional General Artist
I was ABOUT to see that the colors look really flat compared to wha tyou usually do... until I looked at the title again and saw it was "flats" :P

Great job so far! Can't wait to see the next layers
Musical-Wolf Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2005
Anafiel Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
they look like after school punks...the ones that just...stare at you as you leave the building...then whisper...but the next day beg your forgiveness when you throw pickles at them at lunch! Or they could just be contemplating their next weekend adventure, heheheheh

No worries about all the editing... the lineart looked perfect to me either way but we artists do not like to be anatomically incorrect ~nods~ im sick, so imma shut ups now and go back to bed on me couch.

I lurrrrrve yer picceh! ~glomps and snuggles it~
drkelement Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2005   Digital Artist
Oh, I didnít know that darkenedbloodwings did raptor anthro. I've had her on watch for a while now. I like the new character, but Id have to say Tenshi is a bit cooler.
drkelement Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2005   Digital Artist
Wait, yes I did. Because Ive seen Kinshou Ryu. But you know...she mostly does unicorns.
vild Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2005

duos-deathscythe Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2005  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

ooo! I cannot wait until this is finished. You did a wonderful job. It doesn't look crowded or anything. I love all of these colors.
darkenedbloodwings Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2005
XD I love how you color yer stuff in Hg-sama!*needs to learn how to do that*
I can't wait to see this when it's done!
VKahri Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2005
looks awesome so far.. wish I could watch you work, maybe then I'd learn a faster way to color.. lol you had more things to color here than I did on my last coloring attempt and it took you uber way less time... I bet having a wacom helps a lot though. :shrug:
cant wait to see the finished version! :D
ZiO-Black Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2005
Dide, the gray guy is really cute. What species is he? Zetsumei. Cuuute.
Horus-Goddess Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
well he was a Dustrunner (the same species as Ewan) but Dag may have just gone nuts with him on her own. She has a pretty unique character design style. ^^ You could ask her I suppose. ^^
ZiO-Black Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2005
Maybe, but he is really cool. I like his hair. :D
Raisaitsu Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2005
