I'm a bit sad that he's been reclassified but this picture makes me happy :)

Ficou lindão!!!
Sua técnica está melhorando cada vez mais.
Mas me fala uma coisa, é certeza isso? Não é só mais uma teoria? Eu fiquei confusa em relação a essa história do Balaur. Confesso que fiquei triste dele não ser um dinossauro e sim um pássaro.
Ok, sei que pássaros são dinos mas acho que vc entendeu o que eu quis dizer rs

Muito obrigado! :)
Pelo visto, agora é certeza mesmo. Bom, certeza é uma palavra muito forte rs, mas de qualquer forma as características dele estão apontando muito mais pras aves do que pra qualquer outra coisa. Pra ter uma ideia, já tinham sugerido isso em 2013.
Também curtia muito a ideia de um dromeossauro com um par extra de "garras terríveis", mas agora fui ver q o tempo todo as garras dele nem eram como as dos raptores (eram menos curvadas, não chegavam a ser como foices) :/

Nossa...confesso que fiquei desapontada. Gostava dele como um dromaeosaurídeo :/
Sei lá, não tenho nada contra aves ou dinos com penas, mas a cada dia que se passa as descobertar apontam que os dinossauros eram realmente mais pássaros do que répteis que, na minha opinião era muito mais legal.
Não duvido encontrarem saurópodes com penas...rs

Pois é, essa imagem mais "aviana" vem ganhando bastante força em vários grupos. Tbm não duvido acharem penas num saurópode, os dinos estão fora de controle de bizarrice ultimamente (o da asa de morcego foi o recordista rsrs) xP

Pois é... Eu ainda sonho em algum dia descobrirem um raptor "carimbado" pra mostrar todas as escamas...hahaha
Já pensou?

Nossa, um todo escamoso seria inesperado! Teriam q reavaliar muito do conhecimento atual, fora as possibilidades q abriria.

I'll look forward to it then, Archaeopterys is always a classic. I have some artworks that will only be posted in about a month, too xP

Yep, Archie is a wonder in itself, although it is incredibly hard to get the variation between the darker and lighter  feathers through just stippling...maybe because I do so many individual dots...hmm...anyway I'll probably be putting it up on FB before DA :)

Onde ele viveu, na Argentina?Seria bem legal encontrar um parente dele no Brasil!

Ele viveu na Romênia, na época um ambiente de ilha. Uma espécie parecida com essa por aqui seria muito legal, mesmo.

Yeah, that was a pretty interesting how it was found it was not a dromaeosaur after all.

Yea, Wikipedia classifies it as a theropod dinosaur, of course, all birds are considered advanced theropod dinosaurs.

Very nice illustration. :)

Indeed, it is still a theropod, and so a dinosaur. And thank you! :)
