Dromaeosaur by bensen-daniel Dromaeosaur by bensen-daniel
This is the dromaeosaur from Hell Creek, based on Dromaeosaurus albertensis (itself poorly-known) and
:icontomozaurus:'s picture here [link]
So the actual shape and proportions are a little eh.
The main reason I did this picture was to get a basic picture of the shape of the animal, with all the feathers in the right place. Did I GET them all in the right places?
Also, what about that background? Would white be better?

without a name for this theropod dinosaur, i'll call it the "Hell Creek Dromaeosaur"

Seems fine to me. Does it have feathers all along the snout, with no naked skin/scales?

Yes it does, like Dave.

I donīt remember NGMC 91 preserving feathers up to the very tip of the snout, as far I can tell they cover most of the skull but not the last 1/3 of it.

That said - I dont think thereīs anything wrong in depicting deinonychosaurs with completely feathered heads, since they lacked a rhamphotheca this is perfectly plausible...

Huh. I seem to remember someone telling me NGMC 91's snout was completely feathered. What was the last 1/3 covered with? scales or naked skin?

It doesnīt preserve any kind of integument at all at the very tip, so it could have had either naked skin or tiny scales.
