Dryptosaurus aquilunguis by Alexanderlovegrove Dryptosaurus aquilunguis by Alexanderlovegrove
Acrylic on paper. It's an 'updated' version of Charles R. Knight's famous 1897 painting.

Dryptosaurus was probably a Tyrannosauroidea (not Tyrannosauridae), so... the two fingers probably aren't accurate

This is almost better than the Charles R. Knight painting.

Wonderful painting. But, didn't they have three fingers? Perhaps I'm wrong...

This is a pretty old painting!  When I did it I was just going on them being Tyrannosauroids.  I'm not really sure if two or three would be appropriate though, I don't think they've found enough material from Dryptosaurus or Appalachiosaurus.

Dryptosaurus had three like all the basal tyrannosaurs.

This awesome!! Great job, you have certainly captured Charles R. Knight's style and stayed true to the dynamics of the original. Also, nice work on the updated anatomy.

1949? Don't you mean 1909? It's a VERY old painting done at the suggestion of Cope (surprisingly it's a lot more accurate than Knight's later stuff which was all plodding and sluggish).

Well, what do you expect? Knight followed the paleontologists of that time.

:iconpaleo-king:

Yes, but the paleontologists of the 1920s to the 1950s actually took steps backward in their understanding of dinosaurs relative to the more open-minded paleontologists of the 1890s. Especially in perpetuating and practically enshrining the whole cold-blooded myth. Heilmann, Cope, and many others actually considered some pretty advanced ideas in their time. Later on guys like Colbert, Burian and Zallinger made everything lazy, plodding, and half-dead. Knight was taken for a ride, as we say.

It pretty much followed Human History. First we got the Classical Antiquity, followed by the Dark Ages of sluggish Taildraggers and then the Dinosaur Renaisscance.

Hmmm interesting parallel there... So now we are in the Dinosaur Baroque I suppose. Not a bad idea. Music was way better back then anyway LOL.

And I guess when they invent time machines it would be the late 20th/early 21st centuries.

Oh good spot! I don't know why I said 1949! Wikipedia says 1897, so I've changed it to that.
