Albino Microraptor 2 by Book-Rat
Albino Microraptor 2
This concept looked a lot cooler in my head, but honestly there's only been two dinos I've ever really been happy with so I can't judge my own sculpture quality.

Albinism affects melanin production while leaving carotenoid pigments unaffected, resulting in some highly unusual color mutations.

Materials: Chicken and pheasant feathers, foam, apoxy sculpt, and glass eyes.

Microraptor Painting by Book-Rat
Microraptor Painting
The canvasses at Michaels were half off so I decided to attempt a painting for the first time since high school.
It looked a lot better in my head and you can't see the pretty iridescence and metallics in the feathers from this photo, but all in all it's really not that bad.

Even trying to keep it super simple as far as colors and composition go, it still ended up being more involved than I had anticipated.  I probably could have kept refining it, but in all honesty I just don't have that kind of attention span for making pictures. There's like 10 hours in this where there ought to be maybe 3-4.
Oh well. Maybe the next will be better.


Acrylic on 12" x 16" canvass.

Microraptor head by Book-Rat
Microraptor head
Microraptor-type dinosaur hopping off a rock. He's about 2 feet long and one and a half feet wide, made from chicken and dyed pheasant feathers.

I decided to go ahead and list this one on eBay as an experiment: cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?…
It's a good chance for you to get a feathered dino much cheaper than I'd normally charge. =w=; *is extremely pessimistic, but needs to free up wall space*

Yes, I'm open for sculpture commissions~

Note or email me for an estimate, I don't bite. :3
I mostly price things by size, followed by complexity. For example, a 4' iguanodon running on one foot would be more than a 4' crocodile standing on all fours. A 4' velociraptor covered in feathers would be more than either, particularly if the feathers weren't something easily obtainable or had to be sculpted.

Things I need to know:

Species or reference
Size
Is it the whole creature, half, or a bust?
Open or closed mouth?
Is it going outside?
Do you want a base(a small, basic base is included in the price estimate for anything that obviously needs one, like anything standing on one or two legs), if so that's a separate estimate.
Position(if you aren't sure, I can sketch samples)
Colors(Again, I can do samples.)

Payment: I can take personal checks or PayPal, and I start work once I have half down as a deposit. The remaining amount is due after completion and once I have the exact shipping price.



---

FYI: Most feathers are illegal to possess in the US, even things like blue jay feathers. Only domestic or non-native bird parts are allowed. Chickens, of course, are the easiest to find and come in an amazing range of colors and patterns(although it isn't always easy to find skins of rarer breeds), they can also be dyed. There's also quail, pigeons, starlings, grouse, pheasants, peafowl, parrots, etc.
