Dinovember #4 - Heterodontosaurus tucki. A lot of recent illustrations make this adorable little South African dino look like a screaming quill-covered hellbeast, so I tried to give this one some cuteness. The coloration is based on a red panda, then, nature’s closest approximation of a teddy bear, and it’s got a peak of head feathers like a cardinal.

When I look at this I see a red panda mixed with a raptor.

Very cute! I want to hug it.

I half want to hug it and I half want to run away from it . . . the recent paleoart of Heterodontosaurus and its relatives, realistic though they may be, scare me! I imagine when these animals were alive, they were grumpy, aggressive creatures . . . not something you'd want to cross!
Anyway, I love this picture!

Sometimes - I need to practice more doing birds, since it looks like so many dinos are turning out to have feathers.
