Raptor Trainer by JenniferElluin Raptor Trainer by JenniferElluin
A new ID for the new year.
Inspired by a dream I had last night, in which I was a dinosaur keeper at a zoo.

That's interesting! Could be really cool to be a dinosaurs trainer, albeit a bit dangerous...
Nice painting, I really like your coloring.

Yeah, it would be both really awesome and dangerous. I think I'd be willing to try it, though :D
Thanks!

That sounds like an interesting dream. :O
I love all of the detail in this, especially on the dinosaur. :D The way you did the background, with it being blurred, but still definable where they are, adds the the picture, I think.

Yes, it was. I always have weird dreams. :P
Thank you! Actually, the background was mostly the result of me being too lazy to make a decent one ;P

This automatically reminded me of Jurrasic Park. Oh, the dreams/nightmares I had with these raptors...
But both three are great movies!:) And raptors seem fanscinating animals... when viewed from far far far away^^;

Your raptor is cute though! And I agree with Turno; your dream must have been very interesting:)

Yeah, Jurassic Park was probably much of the reason why I had this dream.
Far far far away? Oh, my silly son. But then you cannot see the wonderful detail! You just have to make sure they're well trained like this one. Either that or behind very think glass or a very strong high fence.

I know, I had many dreams about Jurassic Park too, mostly bad ones. But I still love it:D

Let me explain: When I said "far far far away" it had a metaphorical sense. I meant "through a strong strong strong line of protection"*. And from the things you suggested, I would prefer the very strong high fence; seems more safe to me. But I would still be afraid. Afraid and fancinated at the same time:)

*(I use this "far far far" a lot in my everyday life, so I forgot to explain how I meant it:blushes:)

Excellent - now I know what it means when my son says "far far far away." :aww:
I love things that are scary and fascinating at the same time. Maybe that's why I love carnivores, and especially big cats so much. For example, while I was interning at the MN Zoo two summers ago, one of my favorite animals in the area I was working in was the female puma. Just the way she looked at you, you could tell that if she would ever got out, she would definitely kill you with ease. Her brother wasn't quite as hostile, but certainly he must be just as deadly. They're strong, agile, sleek, skilled hunters, and that makes them especially beautiful to me. They command respect and caution and bring about an edge of excitement that non-dangerous beautiful things just don't have.
