Day 17 - Haliaeetus leucocephalus by Thobewill Day 17 - Haliaeetus leucocephalus by Thobewill
Day 17 - restore a modern bird in the manner of inaccurate outdated paleoart, or like a jurassic park dinosaur

Haliaeetus leucocephalus: BaldEagle

Gives a whole new meaning to “bald eagle”

Restored after a jurassic park 3 velocirator, since there’s evidence that these creatures might have had feathers.

"Restored after a jurassic park 3 velocirator, since there’s evidence that these creatures might have had feathers."

I know, right? JP3 just stuck a few quills on velociraptor's head and called it a day, though JP isn't exactly trying to be scientifically accurate or anything. 

Cool drawing :)

At the time CGI was not advanced enough to cover them in feathers, the people who made it said they would have done so if they could

Aside from JP1 and 2, the rest of the movies were all shot after other movies such as Eragon (featuring a cgi feathered dragon) and not long after, Guardians of Gahoole (literally the best animated owls to date), there was zero excuse for not rendering feathers. They used the excuse "they're genetically modified to be scarier" as a means to continue with their shrink-wrapped lizard birds. :/

Well with Jurassic Park III I think they said the exact reasoning was that if they added cgi feathers it would look unconvincing and would not blend well with the practical effects they were using.

Nah, feathers would've just taken away from 1) how scary they look and 2) they already had their animation team hauling miracles outta their asses and the word feathers probably earned some poor suggester a punch in the teeth. XD

I dunno I think feathers could look scary if they pulled it off well and in a way which felt Jurassic Parky

Feathers can definitely be scary.

Look at Cassowary Birds. Closest we got to living dinosaurs. Pay close attention to the feet; now keep in mind that they have spurs on their very hidden wings that can stab a person.

And those are just underdeveloped feathers.

Does not explain Jurassic World though, I mean it's even worse than Jurassic Park III and unlike JP3 adding feathers is both possible and would not ruin continuity. In the end though it's Sci-Fi so what whatevs.

And with Jarassic World, they stopped making the excuses and just straight up explained that it was indeed to keep their dinos looking scary and grotesque; for that hollywood wow factor.

Honestly, after that Holocene Park movie came out everyone thinks that accipitriformes are highly-intelligent, scaly, broken-wristed (although luckily not in this case) monsters! It's unscientific nonsense! Don't you know the latest finds show that they had well-developed feathers on their hands and tails?

Just like poking JP fanboys ;) .

On a more serious note; great work, I love seeing All Yesterdays fan art :). Its a shame I only discovered 'till after the competition was over, I would've drawn something for it...
Oh well, I can always do it for fun.

But I should stop talking about myself, this piece is really fantastic :D . Great work and :+fav: .

You know, it is very unlikely that these raptors had any beak on there snouts, even on the tips.  And feathers!?  There is no real evidence for that!  All that feather-talk is a bunch of glopidy-goo that wishful people think about and is only a theory.  ;)  ;) 

 

 

 

You have done an awesome job on this!  :D

Yeah, I never understood why just because passerines had feathers we have to start feathering accipiters and parrots too. It's needless speculation. Have you seen the feathered galliform art starting to fly around?
