Leap of Faith by Ulario Leap of Faith by Ulario

The title has no relevance other then the fact that I've been wanting to re-watch all the Indiana Jones movies.

Anyways, when I was doing the commission of the grizzly bear tattoo a while back, the client who commissioned them asked me to do three sketches based on some pictures of Wolverine that he sent me so that he could choose a pose from the three.

While two of the poses were not chosen, I liked them anyways. So I decided to take the unused poses and use them for some personal art.

This is the first of the two.
My raptor character, Rikka prepares to gash a hole into somebody.

I've been in the mood for drawing dinos lately. I've loved them ever since I was a kid... and the raptor is by far my favorite dino, so Rikka was a natural choice. Though I'd like to try my hand at drawing other anthro dinosaurs in the near future.

Most of this was done while waiting for my SWG server to come back up.

She'll be for sale at What The Fur in Montreal this June.

Reading your description makes me as happy as seeing your submission! Of course I'm biased towards dinos, so if you just happen to be liking them too at the moment, that's great! ^..^ It's great to see Rikka again... but oh my, am I glad not to be in her attack path right now!
