sunbathing Deinocheirus by Hyrotrioskjan sunbathing Deinocheirus by Hyrotrioskjan
Another quick drawing/painting, without references, so it's definately more Paleoart than Paleontography.
At first I thought this is a very late April fool, but well the best story are written by nature, right? =D

Beside the new design it's also another picture for my sunbathing nonavian dinosaur series: hyrotrioskjan.deviantart.com/a…
the small guys under the Deinocheirus are Shuvuuia derserti



p.s. would you mind if I call this animal now Struthiocamelus the ostrich cammel (not Struthio camelus, the african ostrich) ;)

Magnificent work as always, but there's a little something certain palaeontologist would like to point out: twitter.com/TomHoltzPaleo/stat…

Well, that's one more reason to call it Paleoart, not paleontography =)
How I wrote in the description this is made without any references and I must say that's long ago that I read something about Ornithomimosaurs which was longer than a few sentences ;)

what's with teh sunbathing dinosaurs though? i've noticed a trend on DeviantArt of sunbathing dinosaurs all of a sudden, where did that come from?

Origin of that trend was a Tet-zoo article about sunbathing birds where Darren Naish asked for sunbathing non-avian dinosaurs: blogs.scientificamerican.com/t…

ahh makes sense, so sunbathing birds was an idea that was too much to resist for dino artists on the web :P
