Malvarezsauria by Deinowilly Malvarezsauria by Deinowilly
Posible aspecto de Heptasteornis andrewsi, alvarezsaúrido conocido por restos muy fragmentarios de finales del Cretácico en Rumanía.

Realmente esto era un concepto que quería desarrollar desde hace tiempo ; un coelurosaurio con una cubierta plumosa similar a la de la espectacular malvasía cabeciclanca (Oxyura leucocephala), que he tenido la oportunidad de observar varias veces en plena naturaleza, una de las anátidas más amenazadas y hermosas de la Península Ibérica.

Possible appearance of Heptasteornis andrewsi, an european alvarezsaurid known for a few fragmentary bones from Rumania in the Late Cretaceous.

This is a concept I've been thinking about for a long time; a feathered coelurosaurian with the
pattern of a white-headed duck (Oxyura leucocephala) one of the most beatiful and endangered anatids of the Iberian Peninsula.

Very unusual proportions for an alvarezsaurid. I guess it's partly because of the thick feathers. Anyway, it's an amazing illustration.

I've never heard of this Romanian dinosaur. It's really depressing that there are so many dinosaur fossils found in Romania, yet in Bulgaria, which is not so far away, we have only a dozen fragments from hadrosaurid and ornithomimosaurid.

Exactly! There is very massive in comparison with other alvarezasaurids because of the thick feathers, but I was thinking too in a more robust bodyplan because of the suposed more sedentary lifestyle of this animal in contrast of the runner proportions of most of alvarezsaurids.

I see your point. Anyway in my opinion you could have drawn the tibia and fibula a little bit longer in comparison to the metatarsals. Now it's like this animals almost couldn't move its leg in the knee region. Of course with very fragmentary fossils everything is possible and the reconstructions are mostly educated guesses.

Once again, great work! :)

That´s the fact, the bones are so fragmentary. But the reconstraction it´s no so much based in that fossils, it´s more like a way to put a context for the concept of putting a mixture of modern avian patterns in non avian-coelurosaurian dinosaurs.

THanks for the critics =)

This is a great picture, but I think it's scientifically inaccurate to "skin out" extinct animals in modern animals' patterns. Please don't get this as negative criticism...

It's not exactly the same pattern, it's based on white headed duck pattern but it has important differences, i probably didn´t clarified that point.
However thank you for the critic I really appreciate that ;)
