apparently this is a bit closer to what raptors were like.. yeah... and wasn't that imposing in size neither... just a bunch of knifesized claws and razor sharp teeth... that can still rip you to shreds.... like a wolverine.. on steroids... that you cant escape.....
hm... how is it again that feathered dinosaurs weren't scary again? XD
personally im more than okay with feathered dinos. smaller ones just make sense. nature has a way of utilizing evolution to improve on traits. did they ali have feathers.. no...
do it think a t -rex was feathered... hell no..
why? too big for feathers to serve any purpose
but on a raptor.. as a way of balancing in fast runs, and reducing air current friction... hellyeah, i can see that
btw this is in no way a scientific reconstruction... just a quickie done from memory... navent really drawn any proper dinos since my highschool days.. maybe 1 or 2 pictures in total
oh and just so we avoid unnecessary discussions. i AM A FAN OF FEATHERS ON DINOSAURS!
from an artistic standpoint i can make that stuff work
but do i think all dinosaurs were feathered , no
personally i think coverage varied greatly. i can see males being more feathery as they do have a nice strutting puspose too
ladies love them some colorful feathers, just sayin XD
