MPC-D 100/42 by pilsator MPC-D 100/42 by pilsator
aka GI 100/42, aka GI SPS 100/42, aka GIN 100/42, aka IMG 100/42, aka MPD 100/42, aka PST 100/42, aka the Zamyn Khondt oviraptorid, the artist formerly known as Oviraptor's flagship specimen.

This nameless oviraptorid falls flat into the category of "coelurosaurs I've always liked and never been able to draw to my satisfaction" - this attempt, however, comes very close. It's known from a great skeleton, has the trademark slanted rectangular crest, might or might not be (closest to) Citipati, and was a much smaller animal than long assumed (all those 2.5-3 m estimates, I'm looking at you). It also has 15 cervicals (that's a lot for non-avialan theropods, and even a lot for oviraptorosaurs) to compensate for its lack of "ingeniine" sacral awesomeness, and very long and slender hands as opposed to the short, thumb-heavy paws of its more derived relatives.

A substantially lighter-colored animal than my drawing of its (distant-ish within Oviraptoridae) relative Nemegtomaia, this is meant to reflect that 100/42 was a denizen of the arid Djadokhta, as opposed to the forested, well-watered ecosystem of the Nemegt Formation.

More oviraptorids to come. Doing the big sexy crested ones first will force me to be a bit more distinctive with most of the (remaining) "ingeniines".

Beautiful. The first primaries seem to be a bit too close to the finger nail for my taste, but maybe my eyes deceive me.

wieder mal wundervoll gemacht, das einzige was mich etwas irritiert(Vom künstlerischen punkt aus gesehen) ist der so plötzlich "abknickende" schwanz.

Danke. Ok, mag sein, ist aber auf jeden Fall im Rahmen des anatomisch möglichen, und ich denk nicht sonderlich weit über derartige Sachen nach wenn ich was zeichne.
