Though not the Cryolophosaurus you might be familiar with. I actually meant to put feathers on it, but forgot to before I scanned it in. I'll probably add feathers later-just in pencil-and post the pencil version later. Enjoy for now.

This was drawn using a skeletal reconstuction by Mike Hanson; you should check out more of his work at :iconarchosaurian:

The animal, posture, and texture of the skin looks great for me... I am particularly on the side of the non-feathered dinosaurs, but I would love to see the feathered version.
Only a minor criticism/comment... since recent studies suggest this animal was closely related with Dilophosaurus and Coelophysis (at least in that branch of the non-tetanurae theropods), I wold add to it the fourth finger of the hand (without a claw)

Hmm, I could have sworn there was a little 4th finger nub there, but I guess not! Oops. ^^; Thanks though!

Objection!

Give him feathers, or at least some protofeathers or fuzz... & keep both versions.

I know, I know...I only realized it after the fact... ;_;

The pencil version is fixed now, so I should scan him in soon-I like how it turned out.

Nooo, no feathers! He's perfect!

Wonderful as usual. You should try out some other color schemes, though. The brown is lovely, but variety is the spice of life. :weed:

It's nice to see a spiffy reconstruction of ol' Elvisaurus. :)

I thought about coloring him green, but didn't really like how that was going...^^ Needless to say I gave up on it. One of these days maybe I'll do a Compy and make him a lovely green. ^^

Coolio. I love the skin texture you get, very realistic.
