Staurikosaurus pricei by rick-raptor Staurikosaurus pricei by rick-raptor
Based upon the skeletal reconstruction available online. [link]

The protofeathers have been added assuming that the integumentary structures found in ornithischians are homologous to that of saurischians, making "feathers" a synapomorphy of the clade "Dinosauria", if not Ornithodira (assuming the structures of pterosaurs are homologous too).

This was entirely made on Adobe Photoshop CS4, in order to try an experiment: to see if I was capable of drawing a "close enough" dinosaur only by digital means.

It has proven to be a quick way to draw, though I still prefer the results of combining freehand pencil drawing and coloring in Photoshop.


I would like to dedicate this to Carlos Dino :iconcarlosdino: for encouraging me to draw dinosaurs in the first place, for supporting me with good criticism and tips and his friendship!

I would also like to dedicate this to Pakozoic :iconpakozoic: for his constant support, help and advice. Thank you :)

Interesting, but the legs seem much too thin.

Actually, it is intended. I like the idea of theropods having little meat in their feet, like birds. The thighs are thinner than in the average theropod because of the hip, which is not very wide (the wider the pelvis, the wider the proximal part of the leg).

Thanks for the criticism :)

Encantado de estar ahí para usted, señor :) Me gusta especialmente cómo ha quedado la textura en las zonas escamosas

Sobre todo vientre y cola, en la cabeza no se aprecia tanto. Como te he dicho, de todas formas hay que acercarse y verlo más en grande (al descargar el dibujo, por ejemplo)para poder apreciarlo con el detalle que tiene ;)
