I saw this on Wikipedia. Look up Microraptor, Dromaeosaurus, Austroraptor, Velociraptor, Utahraptor or Deinonychus and you'll see it.

Is the coloration hypothetical, esp. 3?

Yeah, all of the color schemes are hypotethical. We don't know the coloration of these species yet.

Cool! What are those two smaller ones on the ground?

Dromaeosaurus and Velociraptor- their reference number are above each animal, but I guess they're a bit hard to see.

Thank you. I can't believe I didn't notice them before XD
This is a great reference picture, by the way :)

This is great for all sorts of reasons. It makes me wonder just how big natural history's largest feather could have been.

I would think probably those of Deinocheirus would be the biggest. Ornithomimus is thought to have had large display feathers on its arms and if Deinocheirus had the same, those would be massive.

Nice. Looking at this, Deininychus wasn't really that big was it?

Durbed Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2012
Yep, definitely a not-so-terrible claw. Not sure why they used to depict it bigger than it really was, back in the 90īs...

If there's 1 thing I like about your drawings, its the creative colorations. In this case, it's especially true for your Austroraptor & Utahraptor. I also like the top hat guy. My only problem w/this drawing is the Velociraptor (Something looks off about its wings), but that's just a nitpick.

Durbed Featured By Owner May 24, 2012
The Velo wings are driving me crazy, already updated them twice but canīt make them work the way I want. I probably should just start from scratch with a pure profile picture.

Thanks for the compliments. I was about to stick to my old Utahraptor colors but this somehow seems more realistic, yet less striking.

Thanks man. Yes, the old one colors looked too much like Velociraptors, also not a big fan of crests on dromies, but I wanted to show some diversity here.

What ho! Given their apparent intelligence and ornamentation, old bean, I would declare that dromaeosaurs were probably the dapper gents of the Cretaceous. Spot of tea?

Wow. why do I have the feeling that in ALL books I've ever had about dinosaurs, they always exchanged the sizes of deinonychus and dromaeosaurus? :-?

Amazing work btw! =D
Reply
:icondurbed:
Durbed Featured By Owner May 9, 2012
Really? in my books Deinonychus is always featured as the bigger one, and trust me, I have pretty some pretty bad dino books.

And thanks! :)

No, I mean... Your dromaeosaurus here is bigger than deinonychus, but in the books it's always the other way around ;)

...?

But the dromaeosaurus is the one at the left, check the description. :D

My mistake. I didn't see the microraptor sitting on the dude's arm. XD
I thought that what actually is dromaeosaurus was microraptor, and I was quite puzzled by the way it looked... :rofl:

Ah, no problem. :) Maybe I should put numbers on the animals to avoid misunderstandings.

Impressive creatures but I have to admit I am glad they are not living in the present time.
Drawing their feathered bodies surely was a bunch of work but it looks very good (my fav is Utahrapotor because its dots remind me of a fawn).

Ah, I donīt think the little ones would be a bigger threat than coyotes or pumas. I would stay the hell away from the others, though. Glad you like it!

Great scale! This really shows how small Deinonychus was. It was no where near the size of the raptors in JP, which they claim was Deinonychus.

WitchyStella Featured By Owner May 9, 2012  Student Digital Artist
There were actually only Velociraptors in Jurassic Park - they were way too big, yes. Some claim them to be Utahraptors, some claim it can be explained because they mixed the DNA with that of some frogs... I say it's not important, it's a movie. XD

Durbed Featured By Owner May 9, 2012
I think the length was very similar but the "raptors " were waaay taller due to the longer legs.

Thanks! I changed the Deinonychus a bit inspired by your eagle-like Utahraptor (hope you donīt mind), but Iīm still not satisfied, still looks sort of bland.

Tomozaurus Featured By Owner May 9, 2012  Student General Artist
No, that's fine! It does still look a bit bland compared to the others and the Velociraptor's primaries still bother me. But neither is a huge issue, nor do they spoil the piece.
