Concavenator Bust by Fragillimus335 Concavenator Bust by Fragillimus335
Remember that old WIP I teased you guys with so long ago? Well here it is(As a Concavenator)! Fully feathered and looking nice and well-fed. Who said feathered dinosaurs aren't intimidating?

Concavenator was a small carcharodontosaurian theropod from the early Cretaceous. The only known individual is around 6 meters long and ~800-1000lbs in weight.

This is the first of a possible couple different color schemes I am working on, so expect another one sometime soon!

Thanks!  I used a .05 mechanical pencil and colored pencils for this one!

This would have worked better as a hypothetical coelurosaur because no evidence of feathers has been found outside of Coelurosauria. Nice drawing though.

Actually, filaments may be a trait all dinosaurs may of had and probably lost too. Concavenator had quill nobs, Sciurumimus most likely would of been a megalosaur and don't forget Psittacosaurus and Tianyulong! Although
feathers them selves seem to be at least a Tetanuran trait, but that's debatable. All we can do is speculate for now.

I honestly don't think Concavenator was fully feathered like a bird. But I do think it could had at least some scattered around it's body.

Quills are not feathers and Sciurumimus was a coelurosaurian...

Although there is disagreement about the classification of Sciurumimus, it is generally considered a megalosauroid.

:iconbrolyeuphyfusion9500:
Yeah, it's a subject of debate. :iconandreacau: seems to say it's a coelurosaurian, and for some reason I find myself agreeing with him.

Quills technically can be derived from feathers(well any filament
actually,) and the current census is that Sciurumimus is a
megalosaur. If your going with the minority, then I'm going to join
the people who say that Yutyrannus is a Carnosaur. Yes there are
people who think it's a carnosaur, although I disagree with them.

Actually Sciurumimus was reclassified as a Coelurosaur.

THE FEATHERS MUST SPREAD!!! I think justa bout all theropods had feathers to some degree.

Are the tan-ish beige parts feathers or scaly skin? If it's skin, then it looks great.

It is skin until the neck and back part of the lower jaw, wherever those little fluff marks are it is feathers. Thanks! :D

Nice work with the colored pencils. Feathers look good too.

But is this really Utahraptor? It looks so much like typical carcharodontosaurid. What are the reasons/sources behind the reconstruction? Don't take this as criticism, I'm just wondering. :)

I just remembered that I had looked at the beautifully preserved Concavenator skeleton right before drawing this, and its aesthetic must have worked its way in! Anyway, I changed it to a more fitting title.

I definitely can see the Concavenator in this animal. It's true that there are not much good references for Utahraptor, and the only good one is known to go under heavy revision in future due to new fossil material, but in my opinion Utahraptor should have more deinonychosaurian skull. Anyway, I think it's good move that you did change the name of this deviation.

:D Concavenator is the coolest theropod anyway, so it was a good transition! :D

Oh, I forgot when I changed the title of this deviation! But in Utahraptor's case there is very little to go on, but supposedly new stuff is on the way!

Dayum! he looks amazing! Absolutely loving how you did the texture on the feathers and how the marking blend in so well with the surrounding colors. Fantastic! ;)
