Tarbosaurus Bataar
The "tyrant king" of Mongolia is an oddity amongst tyrannosaurids, with its weirdly limited binocular vision and rigid skull. These may be adaptations to hunt local sauropods like Nemegtosaurus, or maybe useful to deal with the unusually common ankylosaurs?
Giants from Mongolia
Therizinosaurus and Saurolophus mingle in the mongolian morning looking for food while the troodontid Zanabazar cautiously approaches the former, waiting for any small creature that could fall from the soon to be eaten tree.

Despite the studies that hint at the connection between gigantism and feather loss in large dinosaurs, I decided to give a decent feathery covering to Therizinosaurus all along the upper side of its body. Sloth comparisons aside , therizinosaurs strike me as relatively passive, slow moving and perhaps low metabolism creatures by theropod standards and wouldn't have been hindered by protofeathers as much as large and more active theropods.
Nemegtosaurus mongoliensis
One of my current side projects aims to depict most of the large and some of the small dinosaurs from the Nemegt formation, so why not start with this one? sauropods are cooler than many people give them credit for. The spikes and dermal armor are speculative additions based on its relative Ampelosaurus and a medium sized Iberian titanosaur's large round and pointy osteoderms and the configuration in which they were restored. It also seems feasible to me that Nemegtosaurus and/or Opisthocoelicaudia (and I'm assuming they are the same here) would need extra protection against the local Tarbosaurus, since their size alone wouldn't probably have offered a good enough advantadge. A striking color pattern, the kind that says "stay the hell away" would have helped as well.
A ten foot turkey
A vulture /turkey styled Deinonychus Antirrhopus. I'm trying to move away from pure profile pictures, but this is meant to be part of an up-to-date dromaeosaur size chart.
Life of a Tyrant: mortality
Death awaits in every corner for a young Tyrannosaurus who wanders away from its parents, and could become an easy meal for the sneaky and deadly Dakotaraptor.

(I haven't drawn a dromeosaur in quite some time, so my apologies for any mistakes)

Two years later...I still hope that you'll make a return to paleoart. I miss your artwork a lot.

Oh, thanks. I'm probably making a comeback soon. ;)

Oh, I'm so happy to hear that! I'd love to see you draw some of the relatively recently discovered species, like Murusraptor, Gualicho, Taurovenator, and so on. :)
