HERE HAVE SOME THEROPOD PELVES for the purposes of comparison.
Dinosaurs, what is even going on with your hips.
(A is Deinonychus, B is Segnosaurus, and C is Tyrannosaurus, for the curious. These may not be entirely proportional, because they are illustrative of general pelvic morphology trends and this paper is due tomorrow so they are MEGA QUICK).
“Fluffy Deinonychus”, by Paul Heaston:
“The idea here was to show how a male Deinonychus might display by “puffing,” just as some modern birds do. I started this as just a pen sketch of the head and neck, then photo-scanned it with my phone and threw it into photoshop. Everything else was digitally sketched. I used Smnt2000’s fantastic dino-wing tutorial for this guy’s wings.
Edit: changed the folding of the arm a bit; “Wings” over at the Dinosaur Toy Forum gave me some constructive criticism.”
