Deinocheirus in 'Don't Forget to Duck' by Smnt2000
Deinocheirus in 'Don't Forget to Duck'
The recently described Deinocheirus is surely one of the weirdest theropods we know: this humongous, feathered ornithomimosaur sought for food from lake shores and rivers, eating everything it wanted. Its similarity to a gigantic wading bird is striking and although its modern analogue would be the spoonbill (as Duane Nash pointed out in an excellent post on Antediluvian Salad.blogspotantediluviansalad.blogspot.it/…), when I think of a big shorebird the thirst thing I've got in mind is obviously the shoebill. And when I think of a shoebill, this (link: i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2009/1…) is the picture I'm thinking of. Of course putting a duck inside its mouth wasn't very cool, so I thought that a generic deinonychosaur would be something more suitable. 
It's obvious that Deinocheirus hunted small vertebrates, but its fragile skull probably couldn't handle bigger preys like this one. This doesn't mean that the animal couldn't have tried at all and maybe it's just giving a ride to the maniraptoran, like the shoebill did in the photo (that's right, it's not trying to eat it - though it could). The idea was good enough so I gave it a go.
Sadly, during the scanning process lots of shadows and effects were lost so if I'll ever have the occasion I'll scan it properly. Still, it's not that bad - I think that the blue hue is a nice touch.
Maybe I'll do a coloured version with some changes (I'll sure add a background), but for now this is what you have.

Wow, what a week.
Who would have ever guessed? Deinocheirus makes its debut, and it's a true beauty! The paleontological community has waited for 50 years, but it was worth it! Can't write how I am excited for this discovery, but it's simply incredible. There are so many restorations right now and I think will not be over it for a while.
Plus the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron has been released! The Nerd God Joss Whedon is going to strike again.
Try to enjoy the 39th Roundup.

Deinocheirus Lineart
After the big reveal by Lee et al., everyone's mad for Deinocheirus once again. And you can't argue with that: this weird, giant spoonbill-like humped ornithomimosaur is a real treat for paleontologists and there's nothing similar to it. And it came right after the Spinosaurus revolution too, another mysterious theropod that had a lot of surprises for us.

And just like I did a for the other sail-backed giant, I had to draw this fellow. So here it is: a lame lineart, as usual.

WARNING: don't know if there will be a feathered version of it since I just wanted to show the animal's anatomy. Only time will tell.

Weeping Liberty by Smnt2000
Weeping Liberty
While my laptop was under some repairs, I found an old lineart of the Weeping Statue of Liberty from the Doctor Who episode The Angels Take Manhattan. A useless monster in that story but the concept is striking.
Even if the original sketch was a mess, I couldn't resist the temptation to colour it so I went on and did it - after all it's a good exercise. Sure, I didn't put a lot of effort in it and the scanner make it seem worse than it actually is (even if I've tried to make some corrections), but I guess it isn't that bad either. Oh well.

The typical human being: unreliable, not smart, surely not handsome and hugely egocentric. Self-declared freelance "artist" and reviewer, also known with the awkward nickname "Smnt2000". Interested in geeky and nerdish stuff such as sci-fi, dinosaurs and comic books. 20 years old, luckly graduated from Monfalcone's I.S.I.S. "Michelangelo Buonarroti" and now an awful student at Trieste's University in the Language Department. Maybe.
