Compsognathid dinosaurs by Kana-hebi Compsognathid dinosaurs by Kana-hebi
Most genera believe to belong to the family Compsognathidae or be closely related to it. I included only genera for which adults are known. Mirischia might be a basal Tyrannosauroid.

The artist's style of how he did make all those dinosaurs here make every single one look special and interesting. I think my favourites here are Sinocalliopteryx and Mirischia.

Very colorful feathers. Now I'm starting to wonder why birds lost their long tail.

I was thinking at first that they were raptors...

Color-wise, my favorite is Mirischia, heck, even his name is cool ;)

They are such an interesting, diverse and poorly understood group

Wow, this is really, really cool!  I just finished painting a 'Compsognathid' series myself.  They are certainly interesting animals, if a bit poorly understood!

A really lovely series ! :D Apart form the color schemes, I really like the variations in feather density. My only nitpick is for Sinocalliopteryx. I am not sure compsognathids had pennaceous feathers. And if they did, I would have extended it on the second finger. But that's really only a very subjective nitpick. Overall, a wonderful depiction of those still mysterious little animals. :D

Thank you! Well, they are not completely pennaceous but something sort of intermediate between pennaceous and simple feathers. Since relatives like Ornithomimids have fully pennaceous fathers I imagined that at some point during the evolution of these lineages we might have seen some sort of intermediate stage. So I took fully artistic license and added some slightly pennaceous feathers on the Sinocalliopteryx :D

Well explained and I agree. :) We have enough mystery surrounding those animals
and integument that such speculation is totally possible. And artistic licence is important
for personality and style. ;)
