In the midst of our recent featherless Jurassic Park posts, I recollected this drawing of mine, which I now offer as my utterly trivial contribution to the discussion.  


Perhaps it panders too much to the 'Awesomebro' culture so aptly elucidated upon by John Conway, but for the present at least, I think it serves a small, if not especially profound, purpose. 

I posted this drawing over on Himmapaanensis and elsewhere last summer and under quite different circumstances, a while before David very kindly invited me on as a contributor here, so I apologise to those who are seeing it again once too many times.

  1. Pfft. That's not scary. More like a 15ft turkey.

    1. Given the size of the arm vs tyrannosaur, that's more than 15 ft. Because if this discussion over feathers, it's the pedantism is appropriate to comments about Hollywood science fiction.

  2. I think that in this film, directors and Hollywood execs should take the role of the lawyer from the first film. In that light, the arm should have some glitzy clockwork on it. :-)

  4. "so I apologise to those who are seeing it again once too many times."

    Nonsense, the more the merrier! If anything, I'm wondering when you're gonna make more? Remember my suggestions from back when ( http://himmapaanensis.blogspot.com/2012/08/squish.html#comment-form )?

    1. I certainly do! I'm afraid I just haven't had time to follow up in that series yet. Although I have a study of a Deinonychus that I'm hoping to share here at some point. I just need to finish the ruddy thing.

  5. ...utterly trivial contribution...

    Yep. Completely fully totally utterly trivial. It needs a couple of rabbits or a small deer standing in the grass on its back.
