Pen and ink drawing painted in Photoshop. Sorry, but this drives me up the wall.

Addendum: Boy have I got some interesting comments on this one. O_o
For the record, I'm angry at the *professional* artists, toy makers, ect. who are still doing this. No offense is meant to the "Jurassic Park" fandom (hell, I'm *part* of that fandom, so yeah). You don't have to stop drawing "JP"-style 'raptors just because of this comic. (But don't knock feathered maniraptors until you draw a few yourself. Feathers are ruttin' easy to draw anyway.)

Do note, there is an Important Addendum.

Also, please please please READ THE COMMENTS before posting. There's a lot of great information down there that couldn't be expressed in a picture smaller than the size of a sheet of paper. Read this article as well, because Brian Switek explains it all better than I ever could.

I`m going to be honest here, I like feathered raptors and I appreciate it when people draw up to date versions, but it does`t make them any more freighting to me.

Oh thank GOD that you didn't make the fucking hands for the actual raptor pronated, thank fucking god. I hate it when they do that, not only is it not accurate, but it looks off. A lot of toy companies make their dinosaurs have pronated hands. Even Safari LTD used to fall victim to that. Now, I think they are starting to get it.

We should also stop drawing Dilophosaurus with frills.

Jurassic Park's impact on the public image of dinos has been a mixed bag. On one hand Jurassic Park killed off the "Slow, sluggish, stupid, cold-blooded" image of dinos. It also killed off "tail-dragging tripod" T. Rex.  On the other hand it spawned the obnoxious "feathered raptorz r ghey!!1!1" fanboys. It should be pointed out that the Jurassic Park dinos were made to look that way to appeal to visitors.

I actually like my theropods with feathers, especially this 'raptor. No nekkid ones. However, I'm not sure whether or not any sauropods had feathers.

I had always thought of raptors as being feathered, or at least as long as I can remember. I have art from when I was 5 or so years old that is fully feathered, and curiously, with inward curved arms. It was only after seeing Jurassic park that I started drawing them with downward arms. But I don't think I ever bought them being not feathered.

People who think feathered dinosaurs aren't as scary have never been near any cranky birds. When I was little, I was terrorized by a turkey, lovebirds, a crow, and geese.

Many ignorant people assume that feathered coelurosaurians are pathetic...

But I can tell you now that it is rather the other way around, scaly coelurosaurians just look bland and boring.
