Antirrhopus by Rodrigo-Vega Antirrhopus by Rodrigo-Vega
Deinonychus, that is.
Who said feathers should look silly?

-I'm asking some of the most obsessive dino-freaks I know to make some updates on this as they notice and I agree. I got some stuff wrong at first.

I thing longer arm feathers and a slightly taller/broader head with a blunter snout and different hands would fix it, hands like most other theropods, and for arm feathers, just search the name of any dromaeosaur really,but other then that its pretty good!!!

Hmm, Pedal and manal claws could be more curved on the non killing claw. Manal claws in particular could be more robust. the head shape is excused due to the large amounts or variation between the reconstruction although it is a bit to smooth. The feathers in the arms could be more elongated and seem to be short to the extent of vestigial function.  The tail feathers are fine and seem to produce an aerodynamic but flashy design; providing necessary display.

However the piece aside from scientific irks is beautiful and I'd love to see your take on a Deinonychus following the Raptor prey restraint model. I have ben trying for ages to do Concept art for Deinonychus in a similar style to your Austroraptor however only just managed an average skull.

No estando familiarizado con las plumas de los dromeosáuridos no puedo opinar que tan realista es, pero el coloreado definitivamnete se ve muy bien :)

I love this, although I can't really tell that it has feathers except on the arm. When you look at a modern flightless bird the feather texture is really apparent/

Penguins are aquatic so they have to be hyper-streamlined. They don't really count. :P
