Dromaeosaurid Drawing

As Everything Dinosaur prepares for the introduction of the Beasts of the Mesozoic 1:6 scale range of model raptors, we are busy compiling fact sheets on all the new figures.  A series of dromaeosaurid and related Maniraptora drawings have been commissioned.  These illustrations will be used to show the approximate size of each of the prehistoric animals represented by a Beasts of the Mesozoic figure.

Feathered Friends

We aim to have all the fact sheets finished by the middle of January, in plenty of time for the launch of this range.  The above illustration shows the typical bauplan of a dromaeosaurid, note the addition of a feathery coat and a large fan of feathers on the end of the long tail.  The family Dromaeosauridae is very diverse, geographically widespread and with a wide temporal range.  The term “Dromaeosaur” means “running lizard”, all the dromaeosaurids were bipedal and in all likelihood, fast runners.

Distantly related to modern birds, we shall try not to get in a flap as we compile the dozen or so fact sheets that we need.
