Staurikosaurus pricei

Based upon the skeletal reconstruction available online. [link]

The protofeathers have been added assuming that the integumentary structures found in ornithischians are homologous to that of saurischians, making “feathers” a synapomorphy of the clade “Dinosauria”, if not Ornithodira (assuming the structures of pterosaurs are homologous too).

This was entirely made on Adobe Photoshop CS4, in order to try an experiment: to see if I was capable of drawing a “close enough” dinosaur only by digital means. 

It has proven to be a quick way to draw, though I still prefer the results of combining freehand pencil drawing and coloring in Photoshop.
