Deinocheirus by StygimolochSpinifer Deinocheirus by StygimolochSpinifer
All the hubbub about the new Deinocheirus specimens finally gave me something to draw.
Can't wait till the paper actually comes out.

Wrong head and the ridge is too small and thick.

This was uploaded last year before the paper was available. All we had was the abstract to go off.

I like the colors. Not frequently used together, but somehow make it seem more life like.

I can't believe they found more of deinoocheirus' skeleton, great work! Do you mind letting me know when and where the paper comes out? Thanks, and once again great work!

QuQ I thought the news was an April Fools joke. But OH MY GOODNESS THEY FOUND THE REST OF IT SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

Your reconstructions are beautiful, and do it justice, I think. o3o

I'm so happy that we finally got more information on this guy. Always been a cryptic dinosaur since my childhood.

Nice work, extra points for giving it a hump/ridge instead of a sail! :happybounce:

The SVP did state that it had "basal webbing".

"Cladistic analysis indicates  that Deinocheirus is a basal member of Ornithomimosauria, but many new unique skeletal features appear to be quite different from other ornithomimosaurs. These include extreme pneumaticity of tall, anterodorsally oriented distal dorsal neural spines (7~8  times taller than centrum height) with basal webbing, fused sacral neural spines forming a midline plate of bone that extends dorsally up to 170% of the height of the ilium"

Why do most people don't even double-check the facts and can't even comprehend the simple fact that high spines =/= sails? I must say that I'm really starting to hate JP3 even more...Come on people, not every animal is a freaking pelycosaur.

I like the second image best.

According to popular belief, Apatosaurus itself would sport a sail too, not to mention the Bisons and some modern big cats...There is a chance that ONE of these dinosaurs actually has a sail, but spines=sails is madness.

Not to mention most of the ornithopods, such as Parasaurolophus!

I really need to draw a sailbacked bison, just to raise the palaeo-communities' awareness on the issue.

The best candidate for an actual sailed dinosaur seems to be Amargasaurus, and even that seems quite unlikely due to mobility issues.

Oh indeed, I forgot the ornithopods. Besides Amarga and Apatosaurus, many other sauropods would have to be sailed too.  

And a sailbacked bison would be quite a sight.

Well, I do believe that Amargasaurus has a sail, but I don't think it would cover anything else than the thin bones on the neck. I know it's unlikely, but that dinosaur is already bizarre by itself.

As a 90's kid - I can relate. I still remember the usual "Deinocheirus, Therizinosaurus, Spinosaurus - how did they look like" from popular media like magazines, books etc. Pretty much happy times for me.

This is the first time and probably the last time I'll say it actually looks better without feathers.

I think the amount in the middle is most plausible, however, since most wading birds have bare legs and the new material suggests that Deinocheirus likely spent a lot of time wading.

The featherless one just looks really really cool. It might have something to do with the colouration.
