This is the second of two commission for the Institute of Vertebrate Palaeontology & Palaeoanthropology, Beijing.
Working with Palaeontologists to reconstruct a new raptor dinosaur found in exquisite condition.
The portrayal had to be accurate, proportions, anatomy and behavior were all considered to produce the final image.
Painted in Photoshop CS4 in around 6 hours.
