I totally re-drew a sketch posted in my journal some time ago ([link]) and added some colours. It's kinda continuation of Citipati and Shuvuuia. Citipati is a bit different, the head shape is more correct now:)

First of all, let me tell you I love your artwork.

The reason of this commentary is that I'm a mexican paleontologist and I was invited to give a TEDx lecture. I like your image very much, and I like to use it in my slides. I want to ask your permission to use it and give you the proper credit (for that, you can send me a message with the name you prefer I use).

Thanks for your time.

You can find me in Facebook under the user name "Roberto Díaz Sibaja".

This is a beautiful piece in its own right, but what really struck me is how amazingly familiar this scene is. Three oviraptorosaur chicks (although I think i see a fourth one) and an adult at the nest, small deinonychosaur watching from further away. If you flipped the perspective behind the deinonychosaur, it could almost be a scene from the dinosaur storybook I did ten years ago. And I know for a fact that it's a total coincidence because I've never shown that illustration online!

Nice. I like the contrast, makes the figure really pop out.

This is brilliant work, but I think the babies want to go play with that raptor ;)

i wychodzi Ci to naprawdę nieźle :-) !

Judging from the Velociraptor's body-language and position to the nest, it doesn't look like she/he's going to move in for the kill. No element of surprise whatsoever and the mother is keeping her chicks in safe proximity. But the little raptor does look curious.

The oviraptor is one of my favorite theropods and this one its outstanding ;) :+fav: I've some of my own but they are not as cool as your piece. Nice job.

Very nice. Though are you sure the "wings" were so heavily feathered?
I thought Oviraptorids couldn't fly. And this looks a bit swan like

I know those "wings" are quite big, but I don't think they could be used for flight (the feathers aren't specialized) :)
