Tea for Three by HeidiArnhold Tea for Three by HeidiArnhold
My friend Luci told me several weeks ago that she once had a dream that she was having tea with two velociraptors. As soon as the words were out of her mouth, I wanted to draw it. So yeah.. here it is. Though now that I'm finished, I realized that I may have forgotten to give the raptor on the right a monicle...and that makes me a little sad.

Sketched with a mechanical pencil, colored in Open Canvas, and my boyfriend helped me throw in a few fun effects in Photoshop.

Tea for Three by ~ChibiMaryn is a beautifully orchestrated piece: From the artist's decision to run lines through it like an old moving-picture show, to the little girl's humorous expression. ( Suggested by SlyDante and Featured by cooley )

Reminds me of how Jim Henson first became inspired to write the Dark Crystal when he saw a picture of crocodiles living in a palace!

THIS is a thing I know.I suppose dreaming of having tea with raptors is better than dreaming of you hunting them(or vice-versa). T-rex aren't too fun either.

I think the reason for bizarre dreams is that your nerves, namely in your brain, repair and regrow their connections when you sleep. So if the part that's being restored stores information, then that information can be activated resulting in weird dreams that have nothing to do with anything. Other influences on dreams can be memories, personal thoughts or wishes, what you ate or drank before bed, or sometimes God showing or telling you something.
That just what I've learned, that's all.

So very cool. Love the composition and color. The male raptor with his pinkie up is a great touch. I think it's better without him having a monocle; more your everyman velociraptor instead of some aristocrat. ;) :love:

Y'know, I never looked at it that way. I like the idea of a velociraptor everyone can relate to. X3
