Just a little something to make certain people rage and their heads explode.

So when Isaberrysaura was first described, it was classified as a basal ornithischian and all the reconstructions depicted it with feathers and very bird-like. Since then, a subsequent analysis found it to be the most basal stegosaur. Which presents a real quandary for artists. There are no stegosaurs known to have had feathers, and the general thinking is that they did not have them (though it's fair to say there's no real proof either way). So I decided to explore what it would be like without feathers and just a very basic scaled covering. Will eventually also do this with feathers.
