this is why i like the idea of feathered dinos, but at the same time hate it.

i love it for its potential, male dinosaurs doing a mating dance, showing off, it has roots in natural world.

i hate it because it is in human nature to jump to conclusions and take it to the extreme.

by that i mean , they discover hints of some feathers on a fossil, the very next step is to turn every dinosaur available into a fuzzball of feathers XD

i find nature much more interesting and varied, and while some were probably fully covered in feathers others had none, and others again had some .

this is my opinion, just like most of paleontology is based on opinions till proven wrong.

these are in no way shape or form scientific reconstructions, but just one dino nerd rekindling the memories from high school when i used to be obsessed with dinosaurs.

now its all dragons for me XD

Most palaeontologist agree feathers only appeared near the end of the Dinosaur's existence.   So not all of the beasties had feathers.  Feathers are important because they show the transition into the avian family.  Since birds are not cold blooded, it has major ramifications on how we view the lives of Dinosaurs.   We may never know what they really looked like, however.   ^_*

This has, "Don't [****] with me" all over it. All your work is cool.
I remember watching watching all those dinosaur specials on Discovery.
I miss those days.

Probably not the least bit scientifically accurate, but it looks bloody cool.

I love the posing of that rex!

When I first read that T. Rex might have had feathers, I thought, "well that would keep them from looking menacing."

I take it back.

Great work!

think it like this: a conjuction ring with reptiles and birds, meaning they might had warm blood instead of cold blood

also, the fact that "traces of feathers" were found in -some- dinosaurs explains the fact some of them had feathers, some in very low quantity, some were covered and some -probably- didn't have

ps. lovely work, i'm gonna watch you
