Deinonychus antirrhopus V.2 by Rhynn Deinonychus antirrhopus V.2 by Rhynn
An attempt at reconstructing Deinonychus antirrhopus after a skeletal drawing by Scott Hartman.
Colouring and plumage borrowing from Harpy and Bateleur eagles as well as Bearded vulture.

There are a good deal of errors in there and it doesn't look as birdlike as it should...I'm not very convinced about the rear part and the legs either but it's a first step toward more serious paleoart. :)

EDITS :

I got great feedback both here and in other forums so I decided to make some edits on the image :

- I made the tail more muscular, particularly at the base.
- I removed the tertial feathers (I should probably remove the last top three feathers at the elbow too...)
- I edited the name to Deinonychus antirrhopus; without capitalization on the species name.
- And finally...I signed, because I always forget to.

Nice many people when they put the feathers get the hands hideously/or fantastically wrong.  I was wondering do you think that dinosaurs also followed a bird trait with males being fabulously colored like peacocks and females being brownish or beidge?  Or closer to Kiwi with a size difference only.

this is amazing. This is THE BEST deinonychus I have seen here on DA. I really think you should do more and you can see that every single part of it has so much effort put into it. it LOOKS REAL. REALLY REAL. amazing. outstanding job, what program did you use to make it?
