Forest Green by Eurwentala Forest Green by Eurwentala
This was one of my random Wacom tablet exercises I made back in October. Last night I stumbled upon it again and decided to give it some colors.

This little guy is some sort of paravian, perhaps a basal troodontid, though I didn't use any particular genus as a reference. The coloration was inspired by (but not directly copied from) touracos. I thought dull dark green would be an useful camouflage for a forest animal, while the lighter face with violet and orange highlights would help in communication.

Drawn and colored in MyPaint, finished with Photoshop.

It's very pretty. Seems like some elusive animal, the kind people would wait hours in a tree stand with a pair of binoculars just to catch a glimpse of. Really liking the purple "mohawk."

Reminds me of a hoatzin, at least the face does^^

Really love the illusion of texture here (it's so fluffy!!) and the color scheme really works here, too :)

One of the coolest troodontid illustrations I've seen!

Depending on his temperament, but at least he would be a cute pet.

Interestingly enough, I had the same idea (greenish, spotted body pattern used for camouflage and bright head pattern used in intraspecific behavior) some time ago: electreel.deviantart.com/art/C…
