WIP - Oviraptor

Technically, Oviraptor is actually a misnomer. The name means "egg thief" because the fossil was found near a nest of eggs, but it later turned out it was a parent dinosaur on its own nest, locked forever protecting it's brood. This will be a watercolor with a more believable dinosaur thieving from an ancient bird similar to Archaeopteryx, who flees it's nest made hidden inside a cycad, which is a group of plants that may bear a resemblance to palm trees but are much more ancient. This will be a gift for a cousin's nephew. :)
