58) Kyra and Jurassic World

58) Kyra and Jurassic World

Been waiting to make this one for a while.  Ever since the Jurassic World aka Jurassic Park 4 trailer came out.

I’m still not sure of what to think of it.  On one hand the trailer makes it seem really bad.  The acting is wooden and conflicting, the effects are nice but really stand out as CG, and as a writer the whole set-up just seems weird.  In all the directions you could take this series, why go in the B-movie direct to video plot?  On the other hand, it could be a good satire on movie goers in general.  Nobody cares about big flashy dinosaurs anymore, so they have to make one even flashier!  In the end it leads to their demise.

I’m also excited, but cautious, of the whole Velociraptor biker gang.  Yes they are his trained raptors going to hunt the hybrid dinosaur.  If done well I’ll be so into this.  While I didn’t like Jurassic Park 3, I loved their portrayal of the raptors.  They weren’t mindless killing machines that meant death to any human on screen at the same time as them.  They were smart, territorial, and just wanted their eggs back.  If they go in the direction that these are intelligent and learning creatures and not just movie monsters it will be magical.

Those are some of my thoughts.  As for Kyra, I guess she won’t know where she stands on the issue until she knows what she is.  Either way this one was fun to draw!
