Remember that correct a velociraptor of JP isn't simply attack a few tufts of colored feathers. It means changing the design of the head and the body, even the claws and proportions of the fingers. The Velociraptor was actually COMPLETELY different, not just "equal but feathered."
Bit of both I guess... I did use the Jurassic Park Velociraptors as reference for this. Originally it wasn't gonna have feathers and be a bog standard Velociraptor, but I guess I had a moment of madness and thought it needed more colour
