So there you have the a look what's in store for the Zhenyuanlong figure. Although I haven't completed this prototype yet, I do anticipate it being one of the most desired raptors of the group and I'm glad we may be able to do a variant of it as well.

Mark Schultz's new double artbook Kickstarter

My good friend Mark Schultz, who was generous enough to provide the amazing 'Raptors at Dawn' limited print for my campaign here, currently has a campaign going of his own via Flesk Publications. The campaign is for two of his artbooks- Carbon 2 and Storms at Sea. The project has already doubled it's funding goal with 19 days still left to go and it's no wonder when you see the art that's being offered. I know there are a lot of fans here of his work and I wanted to pass this along in case you haven't seen it yet. You can view the campaign here.

In closing- I know a lot of you have been asking about me offering Jonathan Kuo's package art as larger art prints. Well tomorrow's update will be focusing on this as well as adding on the second set of art post cards.

Until next time!

Update: Saurornitholestes langstoni (roadrunner colors) has just been unlocked! Great job guys!

      David, I have a question. Will the arms and tail be sculpted more in line with your concept art or with the extra, lovely feathering that Jonathan's artwork has? I ask because I decided on this beauty because it seems so fluffy compared to the other rapotrs.

    2. Daniel Pazmino on

      Thanks for your answer @David- I'm sure it will look fantastic, this is the one I'm expecting the most :)

      Glad you all like the new art!
      @Dan- yes there is a slight discrepancy between my concept and Jonathan's art regarding the skull proportions (mine is made thicker looking because of the head feathers), but the final skull will be more like this: and not as deep as Atrociraptors.

      Ah, so fantastic! Excellent colour and those long feathers are so beautiful!

      Just pledged 465$ And i'm not regretting that one bit!
      The new Zhenyuanlong action figure's color pattern is just awesome!
      Hope to see more soon.
      Keep up the good work

      Looks gorgeous with those colors!
      I have a question though, the skull looks wider in the concept than in package art. I was wondering how are you going to approach to the sculpt? Will it be similar to the Atrociraptor or more like the V. mongoelis? Either way, I'm gonna love it.

    7. Christopher Dobinson on

      SOOOO beautiful! This was the one I was wanting most since the campaign started. The art looks amazing! I'm also so happy Roadrunner Sauronitholestes made it too! Happy day ;)

      Sooooo glad I picked this as my second raptor! Now to figure out what I want as my third....Balaur is tempting, but so is Adasaurus...and Dromeosaurus in Kestral colors is a great idea too!

      This one looks absolutely gorgeous. Fitting because I thought the same of its fossil. The tail feathers look super neat too.
