My first thought was that maybe the therizinosaurs should have bigger wings, but then I'm not terribly familiar with the fossil material. I suppose there's not much point for wings at that scale, since they obviously stood no chance of being capable of flight.
I like your ink and colour drawings, you should do more of them.
Wings? Those aren't wings, are they?
okay, call them 'wings' then. You know what I'm talking about. The AMNH restored Beipiaosaurus with 'wings'(small wing-type structures), and that seems reasonable to me. Obviously they're not functional wings, but presumably some sort of vestigial proto-wings.
Really impressive works! Have you submitted any of your artwork to Prehistoric Times to use in the magazine? I think you should if you have not. Your works is a lot better than some that I have seen and Mike is always looking for more. I hope you keep doing more drawings/illustrations and share them. I love the sauropods BTW.

I don't subscribe to that mag. But I really want to. I ought to submit some stuff as well, but I don't know how that stuff works. I specialize in dinos no one ever illustrates accurately. Link me to 'em, plz?
Here is the link for Prehistoric Times. www.prehistorictimes.com/ And before you submit you should check this also for what he is looking for for the next issue www.prehistorictimes.com/nextissue.html bolesey was able to supply the information. I really hope that both you and Tyrannax submit some of your drawings. The magazine is quarterly so you have plenty of time to come up with something before the next issue is due. It would be so cool to open a new issue and see you guys drawings! Good luck! It is worth supporting Prehistoric Times, it is the only magazine out for dinosaur collectors!

The second foot is moving forward, and so would be visible.
Don't forget, the animal's body is not flat. So, with arms that small, especially, in a straight on side pose, the other arm would be blocked by the first, and the body itself. The second leg would, if the animal simply standing there, but it is running, exposing the leg as it moves forward, ;D dig?
