My story's main protagonist (or antagonist, at this point it's kind of up to who's reading the comic) is a raptor. I really wanted to go more in the direction of birdlike raptors rather than full on dinosaurs. I have yet to get comfortable drawing them but luckily they're tons of fun to pose and stretch. =)
I haven't hit on a design I enjoy for the main character yet, so more to come. I'm warning you, they're very messy. The point was just to get shape and value across- the comic itself will be either black/white or monochromatic sepia tones.
