Chaetonychus means "strong-handed eagle claw". Something big is coming...

This smells of a conspiracy... * shifty eyes *

My batsh*t crazy 10 cents are on this being concept art for a Jurassic Park-like idea where the gene sequencing gaps in the animals are filled in with modern animal DNA as closely related as possible to the extinct species. /shifty-eyes

Too bad you were requested to not include plumage. Based on your other feathered creatures from your gallery, I'd love to see what a proper dromaeosaur would look like drawn by you.

What a beautiful piece! Like a tiger, your fictional theropod is strikingly colored yet well-camoflauged. Have you ever considered or done actual paleontography? I can see that much of what you do is comission work, but you would be great at it.

Not to be a stickler, but wouldn't the eyes be further forward?

The eye placement looks right in relation to other dromeosaurs. Though I did give it more binocular vision than other dromeosaurs.
