Beishanlong by Dennonyx Beishanlong by Dennonyx
In this period I have seen many paleoartists perform speculative restoration of Deinocheirus based on the abstract of an article that has yet to be published. I'll wait until it is officially released, to portray a hyper-accurate Deinocheirus, but in the meantime I thought I could opt for a restoration (not so speculative) of another ornithomimosaur similar to Deinocheirus: Beishanlong. Since  the sacral and dorso-sacral vertebrae in Beishanlong are not known, I assumed that it (like Deinocheirus) MIGHT have a dromedary-like structure too.
The restoration is ACCURATELY BASED on the holotype specimen, and for the rest on other basal ornithomimosaurs like Harpymimus, Hexing and, precisely, Deinocheirus.

It didn't have a Deino-hump.

Why not? Dorsal and/or sacral vertebrae from this taxon are not known (at the moment)

Maybe also Garudimimus had a "hump".

Maybe also other ornithomimosaurs.

Maybe...

The point is that, just as I did better with the "nosed megalosaurids", we can't keep on restoring dinosaurs without giving them characteristics that make a lot of sense given their relationships when we are talking about unknown body parts.

Anyway this restoration is kinda outdated due to other reasons...
It also looks odd because of the hands which look almost as if they are pronated.
The skull is also probably wrong. It should be more Deinocheirus-like rather than Hexing-like. But well, this drawing which currently sparkles a chimera-looking appeal was made before the official publishment of Deinocheirus' paper. Plus I still had a lot of issues in drawing accurately. So whatever...

The restored sketon of Beishanlong didn't have the same tall dorsal or sacral vertebrae as Deinocheiruscommons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fil…

This is Deinocheirus' skeleton: www.skeletaldrawing.com/home/d…

Therefore I conclude it is unlikeley.

Such a hipster.

Scherzi a parte, ora puoi ricostruire Deinocheirus.

Interesting... If Deinocheirus had a hump, why not? Love the speculation!

Very nice, and plausible idea. But I really don't think its feet were that short.
