All Yesterday's is a huge inspiration for me. Between atomnatically rigorous depictions of dinosaurs and softer, naturalistic approaches, I always try to find something in between.

I absolutely love this picture. When ever I'm browsing DeviantArt I end up looking at it eventually. Its nice to see someone construct a Deinonychus realistically.

Down to the ankles, eh?

*goes to make revisions*

Mounting evidence shows those sorts of theropods had feathers covering most of the legs....Pedopenna, Microraptor, and so on...I usually just feather down to the knees...

Are what lips? There is some debate as to whether theropods had lips - I haven't kept up with it to be honest. I've drawn a sort of protobeak here.

So they aren't. :lol: I was just about to ask whether a protobeak is made of beak material, but I'd sound too much like the n00b that I am. Oh...wait. I just did.

Well yeah it would be keratin - but as far as I know it's still pretty speculative. I'm not really the man on theropods (or dinosaurs in general) anymore, so I could be wrong about stuff.

If you're not the man... then who? Now really, a whole account dedicated to them shows more than a passing mood. What happened?:)

Adorable. If one can use the word 'adorable' in reference to a D. antirrhopus. Which I'm sure I can. The coloring rather reminds me of live stock...in the 'I can be camofalgued in black and white because no othe animals can see color' sort of way.

Too much feather for my taste. But still a great painting!

I'm not sure it's so much a matter of taste as inference based on evidence. All the evidence so far indicates that deinonychosaurs had arm feathers forming "wings" and feathers on their legs to their ankles.

yes im aware of that; just that your drawing and my mental picture of the Deinonychosaurs is a bit different that's all.

are the feathery legs modeled after microraptor?

Yeah, partly. Archaeopteryx too.
