Velociraptor Skeleton Study by TheDragonofDoom Velociraptor Skeleton Study by TheDragonofDoom
I had SO much fun reconstructing a velociraptor. Their anatomy is so interesting and loads of fun to draw. So here's the reconstruction of a velociraptor skeleton, if you know anything about dinosaurs or paleontology and see a mistake feel free to tell me so I can fix it and improve.

Ya know I never understood why for a good number of dinosaurs the pubis sticks out so far down, it just looks naturally distracting and slightly unpleasant to me.............Do ya have any ideas of why it sticks out so much? Since I am clueless jere

From my understanding it helps the dinosaur to balance on their hind limbs, as well as protection for the soft tissue and organs. Here's a site with a lot of good information: finstofeet.com/2010/07/14/the-…

Well with a pelvis not like our own the pubis definitely has to take on the protective role, but it can be shorter to do the same job..........Same for balance, I am not seeing any major muscles connecting to it that I would associate with balance [With that, I dunno how having it longer would increase balance]

I don't know, I guess prehistoric animals are just odd that way, lol.

Not bad. One thing though about the skull, it looks a little short and wide.

Velociraptor tends to have a more long and thin snout, though if this is a case of odd POV/artistic choice then feel free to ignore me.
