Loki Raptor! by EWilloughby Loki Raptor! by EWilloughby
So, I've seen a few "the Avengers as dinosaurs" artworks floating around, most noticeably this set as well as this one, but it always bothered me a little how these sets always omit the awesome villain, as well as the most awesome family of dinosaurs. So I figured I'd remedy that.

The helmet is meant to be part of a Zuniceratops skull. I tried to be as accurate as possible with the skull, the dromaeosaurid anatomy, and the costume. Yes, this is what I do with my Saturday evenings...

Though, naturally, Tom Hiddleston doesn't need much help being a raptor.

I'll return to your regularly scheduled paleo and avian art shortly. Just had to permit myself a bit of silliness. =p

Kinda like the skull helmet because the only thing that I miss a about the outdated Deinonychus model is the more Allosaurus like skull.

I was imagining more of a T-Rex with Deinocheirus arms. But this is just as good! You've thoroughly evoked the sentiment of the scene... with dinosaurs!

I would just add a word bubble with "puny (insert appropriate clade)".

Thank you for obliging me!

Whilst I think that Loki was a terrible villain and a total pansy... I gotta say, this is hilarious and awesome! XD

It was actually modeled anatomically more specifically on Deinonychus, but close enough. ;) Velociraptor seems a little too puny... and tiny... for Loki. :)

This is hilarious; I actually did a raptor Loki last July. Yours is better, lol. The Zuniceratops skull instead of his helmet was brilliant. And he's even wearing the coat, vambraces, and boots! Yeah, yours is better, lol.

Omg, yours is feathered and accurate too! And inspired by the same interview too, I see. xD That man is a nut. I also made the same "you were made to be eaten!" joke with this picture on Facebook, lol. Great minds think alike or what haha.

Same joke? Dang, that's almost creepy. :shifty: To be honest, non-feathered raptors really get on my nerves. I actually have a hard time watching Jurassic Park now that I know their Velociraptors were complete bull. And it used to be one of my favorite movies.

Heh, no kidding. :) As a paleoartist who cares most about reconstructing dinosaurs accurately (well, when I'm not, erm, drawing them with armor and leather and so on...), I can't stand scaly raptors either. I'm exactly the same way about Jurassic Park - used to be one of my favorite movies, now it just makes me cringe the whole way through.

I tend to just pretend that the cloning technique used screwed up their DNA, with all that extra DNA thrown in. Somehow. Even though frogs have skin and not scales, and would seem to make them smaller instead of bigger, and ... maybe they threw some anaconda DNA in there, too? IDK, I just pretend they're not Velociraptors.

Accuracy is everything, at least in my opinion. Yeah, you can stretch the facts a bit in a work of fiction or art, but you have to know and respect the rules first before you can start bending them. Otherwise, it just comes off as sloppy and lazy.

No kidding. It makes me think about how amazing a Jurassic Park remake would be, with perfectly accurate dinosaurs CGI and behavior.
