Ambush from Above

A hungry African huntress swings down on a surprised raptor, armed with her seme blade. The main inspiration for drawing this was a desire to improve my characters’ posing and foreshortening. Given the agility required to survive in the prehistoric jungle, tribal huntresses are great for this kind of practice.

The raptor illustrated isn’t necessarily any particular species, but the downturned lower jaw was drawn from recent research on Utahraptor ostrommaysorum.
