Some speculative sketches of Coelophysis with proto-feathers. I am trying to get up-to-date on where dinosaur palaeontology is at these days, as much of what I learned as a 12-year-old dinosaur nerd is somewhat out of date. No longer are these critters considered the cannibalistic and scaly monsters I knew of as a child! What an exciting time to be alive, though, to observe from my layperson’s distance the evidence for feathered dinosaurs that was, in my childhood dinosaur books, largely speculation.
