The bird on his back is a simple play on the idea of dinosaurs becoming more and more birdlike the more we discover. I opted for something seagull-like as I can imagine birds of the sort began appearing. I struggled to find birds that may have been around during the time period. My original plan was to have a small flock (2-3 birds) surrounding the face, but I opted for Pterosaurs as I believe they may have been more abundant at the time.

Love The Feathers.

I love the sail in the back. Since they may have been cold blooded, it's easy to see why such huge, amphibious animals would have needed help sunning.

Uhhh... Buddy... Dinosaurs were deemed as either warm-blooded or some temperature system between warm\cold blooded; both ways deem dinosaurs can control their body temperature

Hence the word 'may'. There was likely some variations between types of dinosaurs too.

Then we gotta accept Spinosaurus Aegypticus, Spinosaurus Morocconus, and Oxalaia were different subspecies\specis of Spinosaurus :nod:

It actually looks like another spino in the background chased the fish toward the main spino! I like the possibility of cooperative hunting among these spinosaurus

This is literally the coolest feathered spino I've ever seen.

I hope they discovers they had feathers one day. The weirder the better!

I'd love for them to find solid proof of large theropods having feathers. I LOVE the possibilities with feathers, it adds a new dimension to paleoart.

Hey, I am making a documentary about Spinosaurus for a college film project, and I want to know, if this is your work, can I please have your permission to use it in the movie? I will give you credit, and I will not be making any money off of the piece of work.

Hi there! Sorry for the late reply. You're absolutely welcome to use the piece! Just make sure you credit me of course :)

Sorry if I'm too late as well, haven't been on dA much lately!

No problem at all, hope your documentary goes well :)
There is equivocal evidence of Deinocheirus having feathers........

Really awesome! The colours are great! :D
And first time I see a pterosaur sitting on a Spinosaurus sail! :meow:

The bird could be related to genus like Iberomesornis and Eolulavis, which lived almost around that time, however in Iberia.
