Can I ask you about the forewing, in Xu's 2003 reconstruction it was wider, and now people say it should be narrowed. Is this from the same fossil (VPPV 13352)?

Yep, it is based in IVPP V13352. There are some controversy about the wide of Microraptor wings. I tried to follow the fossil look as much as I can, and that's my result, but I can't say if it's the most accurate.

Thanks mate, I was only curious because I'm flight testing some models of it for my university course and the wing shape is interesting.

Thanks again.

Finally someone who made the wings true to the shape in the fossils. Although the impressions I see make me think that the forewings were even longer and narrower.

I've seen your reconstruction, and the fossil pic, and after some reflexion, I've choose to draw it in this way, because I think the wings could be narrow for a post-mortem effect (maybe smashed or joined together).
Anyway, I think the forewing is a bit too wide in my pic, so maybe I fix that someday.
Thanks for your comment.

Precioso!!! esta medio raro el bicho, pero la verdad es que todo el mundo lo reconstruye mas o menos asi, asi que debo ser yo el que no tiene ni idea de como era... pero...
LAS PLUMAS, POR EL SANTO CRISTOSAURIO!!! es increible!! las has hecho con el Photoshop??? esas alas son increiblemente realistas!!!!!!!!
10 aplausos!!!
Tal vez yo no le hubiera hecho protoplumas en el cuerpo como si fueran filamentos, sino directamente ponerle plumas como de un ave moderna... pero es una opinion... el dibujo es excelente!!!

Creo que las alas delanteras me han quedado demasiado anchas en los extremos, pero en lo posible, he procurado respetar lo que se ve en el fósil (por ejemplo, la espesa cobertura del cuello, que lo hace parecer grueso).
Las plumas... si, son dibujadas a lápiz y luego photosop al canto, esta vez no hay fotomontajes ^^. Y lo de las protoplumas... bueno... eso es un fallo mio, porque se supone que intenté que parecieran plumas. Tanto mamífero y tanto pelo han debido deformarme la técnica jejejejeje. Habrá que practicar.
