Deinonychus antirrhopus by Kana-hebi Deinonychus antirrhopus by Kana-hebi
My take on Deinonychus. Fully feathered and using a color scheme than I think would have suited the habitats these raptors were found in.

I like this streamlined posture over them holding out their arms in front, which looks clumbsy and goofy.

I agree... it seems like a more plausible posture for me. And let's not even talk about reconstructions that show them with "bunny hands" that would have broken their wrists!

You, sir, are the palaeoartist I have been looking for. I honestly don't know what to say, I could easily be fooled into thinking that Deinonychus looked exactly like this in life.

This is how you reconstruct a paravid.

(Rip. To Jurassic world\park Raptors ! :D)

I hate to burst your bubble,but raptors were essentially just big birds,who themselves were therapod dinosaurs and were one of the dromeosaurs closest relatives ,while crocodiles and dinosaurs split from a common ancestor some 250 million years or so.So by all logic dromeosaurs would bear a lot of resemblance to avians and little to no resemblance to crocodiles.

This is exactly how people need to reconstruct dromaeosaurs. You are very quickly becoming my favorite paleoartist around. Keep up the fantastic work!

Do you have any plans of doing any non-theropods, by the way? I'm very curious to see how you handle soft tissue on an ornithischian.

Thank you so much! 

Yes, I want to start doing some non-theropods soon... also I want to do some synapsids, some other archosaurs...

I love the markings! Such a cutie (but dangerous still)!
