tHis is why I love saying that my favorite animals are "dinosaurs" and why I love paleontology with them - there's so much diversity that there's always something else to research, explore, and appreciate! Excellent depictions here - I love your simple style.

Thanks! I concur, though I must confess that other animal groups are plenty diverse as well.

True. Mammals are pretty cool, and of course some of those invertebrate groups.

A few comments:
1. Surprised you didn't include a giant sauropod (though given the amount of paper that would take it makes sense)
2. Isn't that Anchiornis rather big? It looks about the size of Tyrannosaurus's head (Perspective?)
3. Your pachycephalosaurs are always very pokemon-ish :P

Yes, I chose small sauropods on purpose. I once drew a similar picture prior to joining dA and had to resort to making the sauropods framed "photographs" hanging on the wall in the background so they could fit.

You're also right that Anchiornis is too big. Pretend it's meant to be closer to the foreground I suppose.

I don't know how to interpret that pachycephalosaur comment. :P

Scoring the real Megaraptor, which isn't shown enough, scores a win for me. XD

Nah, seriously, it's cool all the way...so much variety.

It's "arharensis", not "artharensis".

Is there a consensus as to what its crest looked like? Rey has it as a tube; Paul has suggested it to be a curved wedge.

I don't know for sure myself. I'm going to guess it's at least partly a perspective thing there.

Great illustration of the sheer variety of dinosaurs! The quality of the scan (or photo?) could be better though, you should try bumping up the contrast in an image editor, which will also help hide smudges etc.

Many thanks. Editing and coloring is easier digitally, so with luck that'll become a more regular thing from now on.

I just tried it on this one (didn't save it), and it does make the quality better but pronounces the smudges, too.
