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...
what does sp. mean?
Color-wise, my favorite is Mirischia, heck, even his name is cool
Sinocalliopteryx, the giant dwarf and raptor-eater.
Nice to see the compys in the spotlight.
Wow they all look incredibly realistic and I love the patterns, great work!
Extremely impressive, well done!
This is a wonderful execution of a wonderful concept.
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 ! 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.
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
