The many ways to restore a dinosaur by Vitor-Silva The many ways to restore a dinosaur by Vitor-Silva
Suchomimus restored in some different ways: The first is the classic, where the head have exactly the shape of the skull; on the second, skin and fat changes considerably the head format; the third and fourth are the two previous restorations, but feathered.

i am a fan of number three, I am not convinced that there was much fat present on the snout, or I at least think soft tissue would follow the indentation in the upper jaw.

I also prefer the "normal", showing the jaws curves (and the scaled over the feathered). But the other ones are worth to speculate.

Two and four look stupid to me, I like how 1 and 3 show the gripping part.

Haha, in these examples I wanted to restore the animal with a lot of flesh and soft tissues, to change considerably the "standard" appearence. Much like as a komodo dragon, for example, wich skull is pretty different of the head's shape when the animal is alive.
I did something similar in this one: [link]

I approve of #4, but would the lips really cover that much of the "notch" between the maxilla and pre-maxilla?

Isn't exactly known, so that's the objective here: show diferent and speculative appearences of a dinosaur when alive . Principally spinosaurs, as they are always (or almost always) restored like the 1st example.

I see. :) I think I may feather my Spinosaurs to break the trend.
