Sexy Red Head
Here is a drawing of the speedy Velociraptor, made a popular species by the 1993 film Jurassic Park. My version is based on several illustrations I have seen where it is slightly feathered. I thought this is a cool detail linking modern birds to dinosaurs. The raptors in Jurassic Park were much larger than the actual animal which was around the size of a turkey. The other day I saw some wild turkeys near my house and was surprised by how fast they run. I imagine it must have been quite a sight to see these things move in real life.
