Bristles by WanderingAlbatross Bristles by WanderingAlbatross
Illustration for onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10…, a paper discussing the origin of feathers in theropod dinosaurs and the possibility of bristles being the starting point. I was commissioned to draw a basal coelurosaur and give him a healthy spattering of bristles similar to those seen on birds. We had a bit of fun with a looking to the future pose; stately with a hint of fuzz to herald in the new era! Scales were loosely based off Sphenodon and dinosaur-type stuff. Done in my usual haunt; coloured pencil!

Basal dinosaur with feathery "whiskers"? Why not... The drawing is very good anyway.

Interesting theory. I've heard abut it before, but didn't had a chage to read about it.

Nice work, the lips and whiskers give this dinosaur a very mammalian look. It's kinda confusing xD
