The 'Wings' of Tyrannosaurids and Alvarezsaurids
New paleontological-themed post on the blog that I wanted to share with you.
The fact that in paleontology there may always be some margin of error often causes artists and/or enthusiasts to fill the gaps with (more or less) plausible artistic assumptions. It has always been done and always will be, there is little to discuss.
Among the paleo-artistic 'memes' (if we can really use such a term) that are spreading, there is one that involves two families of theropods characterized by particularly short forelimbs: Tyrannosauridae and Alvarezsauridae. If in the last century their atypical arms were the source of countless headaches, with the advance of paleontological discoveries various experts and not focused on the importance of the plumage: with many species in clades considered to be feathered, the bizzarre little stumps became the support on For well-developed colorful wings to attract the opposite sex, like many birds.

what do you use in your drawings?  
Dennonyx Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2018   Traditional Artist
Mostly crayons, occasionally pastels, water-colors, felt-tip pens, and nibs.

Hello :),
Do you have intentions of further updating you phylogenies?
I would like to know the classification of recently described species, and since you have one of the few mega matrices available for both Theropoda and Ornithischia, I'm curious t see if you have plans on doing so.
Dennonyx Featured By Owner May 3, 2018   Traditional Artist
Hi, at the moment I'm very busy due to either paleontologic and other studies and stuff so I don't have much time for Deviantart right now. Note that those phylogenies are not results of single analyses (especially Theropoda) so don't consider them as professionally proper sources. Since last update I've only included Diluvicursor, Matheranodon, Caihong and that megaraptorid I'm not sure about spelling it correctly. Yeah a little things changed but that was predictable as they interest very unstable areas of the tree. You might contact me on fb or insta if you are curious about details but nothing mind-blowing happened in relation to the overall phylogenetic resolution and implications regarding those areas.

I waned to check if have pretensions of updating those, since you are coding new taxa you want to update it.
I'll wait till you update them, thanks for the answer.
