Today I'm very excited to present you all not only with the first look at the Fan's Choice raptor packaging, but also to introduce you to our latest artist contributor, Sara Richard! Sara began her career as a sculptor for Hasbro and worked on several toy lines including Jurassic Park. (Sadly, her amazing Carnotaurus and Stegosaurus have still yet to be released). During her time there she also established herself as an illustrator specializing in a variety of pop-culture subject matter and of course dinosaurs! You can find out more about Sara and see her work here and you can see even more of her dinosaur illustrations here.
Now as I had mentioned previously in the comments, the main line of raptors consisting of 12 species, was designed and created by myself with beautiful package illustrations by Jonathan Kuo. However the Fan's Choice raptor set is something that has evolved from my interaction with you all and with all four figures now available, has become a set of it's own. To commemorate the collaboration between myself and the backers here who have helped bring Beasts of the Mesozoic to life, I wanted to bring in a fresh look for the packaging, while still keeping the overall layout the same. All four Fan's Choice raptors will feature art work by Sara Richard distinguishing it from the main line. So now I'd like to show you the package art, layout, and design for the very first Beasts of the Mesozic Fan's Choice raptor figure- Dromaeosaurus albertensis in the kestrel colors.
So there's your first look at the Fan's Choice raptor packaging!
And no I haven't forgotten about the Pyroraptor and Linheraptor package art and designs. Those will be unveiled very soon.
Also, thank you all for reaching the Fans' Choice Zhenyuanlong raptor figure yesterday- now it's time to get those accessory packs! More on the next package art reveals and the final add-ons for the campaign tomorrow. :)
