Concept art of the newly discovered Hell Creek dromaeosaur, Dakotaraptor steini.  Personally I call this thing the Dragon Slayer.  Our team is super excited to implement this amazing discovery into Saurian and what implications it has for our environment.  This thing is literally the exact size for a Jurassic Park raptor comparison by the way guys.  Imagine getting into tussles with this ghost of Hell Creek as a juvie rex.  There may exist a featherless base I made to try feather layouts on top of, but you only get to see it if you know the password.  Size and proportions based on an earlier revision of the publication and may be subject to change.
