Dino by Kerneinheit Dino by Kerneinheit
So this is Zul’dar’s mount.
He found her when she was a wee lil’ baby, and she probably wouldn’t have survived in the wild, because of her hide color (a partial absence of pigment)…
And not long after that, he had to flee from Zandalar, so he took her with him and kinda ended up with two kids with him, both his son and she xD

After he (presumably) somehow found his way to the Shatterspear village and stayed there for some years, he raised her. She’s a large dinosaur, and not… quite a raptor I guess xD I see her as a sub-species of some kind, larger and heavier. She’s slower than most smaller raptors, not a sprinter, but more sturdy and enduring, able to run longer distances without getting tired.

And that saddle and stuff is what Zul’dar uses when he’s travelling. Maybe I’ll draw her battle armor later. And this is probably her - almost - final design

Hey, was this sketch created on a computer/wacom? I guess from the smooth lines digital? I ask because I don't normally see digital sketches looking this good. From what I've seen, most other peoples quick sketches have a lot of brokens lines where they lose pressure, and don't look nearly as good as there sketchbook. Obviously, you demonstrate your not, "most people"  and it's also your decisions that set you apart too. :D

Please keep, making my eyes water!! Make it rain!

Very nice, I love the details on her. The saddle looks also great.

These things were the main reason I always considered playing WoW. Friggin' awesome.

One thing I will say is that, for a raptor, this particular dino looks a bit more large-carnivore-ish than he does raptorish. Thick head, shortened limbs, and fairly heavy build aren't something I'd have expected to see on a raptor, or raptor-like creature. Don't get me wrong, it still looks awesome, your reptile anatomy looks amazing as always... It just doesn't seem quite like what I'd think.

And heck, maybe I'm wrong... I don't really know what these guys look like in-game, and I haven't seen a decent picture of Eoraptor/Utahraptor or the like... maybe they're heavier-looking than I'm envisioning. *shrug*

XD and if you paid attention to what was written in the artist's comments you'd realize that she isn't meant to be a raptor, not really. 'She’s a large dinosaur, and not… quite a raptor I guess xD I see her as a sub-species of some kind, larger and heavier. She’s slower than most smaller raptors, not a sprinter, but more sturdy and enduring, able to run longer distances without getting tired. '
