I like how you did the mouth. Let me guess; if you were to open this guys mouth, you wouldn't see a fleshy "flap" at the back of the mouth, right? Cuz that area looks like it's covered in skin and feathers. Am I right?
In the works; I did a poster on Archaeopteryx at SVP a couple years back showing that it lacks tertiaries as well. And all of the non-avialan maniraptorans with proto-wings lack them...so a wing that is contiguous with the body is a derived character somewhere above Archaeopteryx. Putting one on Velociraptor implies an independent origin.
Probably, the known dromaeosaurs with feather impressions have fan-tipped tails, unlike Archaeopteryx and Jinfengopteryx which have long feathers all the way to the base. Of course maybe the tuft was aerodynamic (like rhamphorhynchid tails) and only evolved in the little guys, but no contrary evidence so far.
Awesome painting by the way John! Don't think I've ever seen a Velociraptor without its second digit hyperextended before
