Your drawings remind me of the work of William Stout.

Nice drawing, good work on the wing. Though the hands doesn't look much like those of Ornithomimus. Also ornithomimosaurs (or atleast advanced ones, I'm not sure) does not have a hallux. Other than that, it looks cool.

thanks, I really appreciate it.
Actually, this was done without any references, its actually just a school doodle done in about just an hour. I wasnt really inspired, just wanted to jump on the bandwaggon ;) , so its not something specia. I will make a remake soon
But thanks a lot for the comment :D

You're welcome. I saw you've written this drawing was a skecth but I didn't think it was done without references, otherwise I wouldn't have made my comment. The head is particularly well drawn, it just seemed that you were using references.

On a side note, I jumped on the bandwaggon too, though the result of this action is still awaiting for upload.

well, it really was done without references, itwas entirely made at school in about an hour or so. I just used myintuition to draw the head,nothing more, so it seems I got lucky with the head :D
Cantwait to see yours :D

Yeah I just recently found out that they had wings on their arms. How did they find out though? That I don't know.

I KNOW they found studs in the arm bones,but I believe they recently found feather prints as well :)

Okay thanks for telling me then.

Clues in the skeleton maybe? There are these kinds of studs on the arm bones if tbe animal had feathers there, or from thesttructure of the surrounding rock - i.e. Feather prints in the stone? Or chemical analysis of the surrounding rock? Those are the possibilities i know of, but i don't know for sure either. Thing is, if feather pronts are ever found - in case thy haven't been already - it could even be explored what color it had when it was alive! :)
