This will probably never be finished. I'm not good enough with my tablet yet to shade complex patterns it seems, so enjoy it how it is because it won't be getting any better.

Cute though, looks based on a cassowary or emu chick? :) I was going to color mine similarly at first, then I decided to go with a more shorebird-like chick (ploverish) coloration. Saw yours just now so I'm glad I didn't do the same pattern, hehe.

Indeed it is. I based it on both emu and cassowary chicks, I figured someone would notice XD Nice to know yours will be different, can't wait to see it.

andrea cau thinks it could be a coelurosaur, what do you think ?

I think its far too young to be coded correctly and should just be listed as an indeterminite theropod.

The simplistic style actually look very nice! I have a question though; Is the underside of the Sciurumimus specimen visibly feathered? I thought it wasn't, as seen on most compsognathids, but I haven't read anything about that specifically.

Thank you. Yes, the paper (or maybe the supplementary information, I've forgotten which) mentions feathers on the belly of the animal. You can't really tell, but I've actually left the underside of the tail unfeathered, the long feathers from the dorsal side just drape over it.
