"The Call of Al"

Allosaurus fragilis. A digital painting I did of Big Al the Allosaurus. 

I basically did this painting to test out some oil paint brushes I got for Photoshop. I'm not sure if it can be made out, but I did give the Allosaurus some fine fluff across its body. The pose was based on a sculpture Jonathan Rader did of Big Al, I used it heavily for reference. 

Completed in late November 2016.

Done using pencils and Photoshop CS5.

You got the textures spot on for me. And you can almost feel the heat from the arid colour pallet. Great work :) (Smile)

Beautiful Big Al, but I can't see any fluff on this carnosaur tbh.

Yeah maybe, but fluff is still in the realm of possibility. And with only Concavenator and Allosaurus showing scales on the tail and partially the torso respectively, there's still a pure lack of integument known for Carnosauria so whether they were scaly, feathery/scaly, or both including bare skin & keratinous coverings is up to debate. For me since feathers are fairly widespread throughout the dinosaur family tree, the basal members of Avetheropoda were probably fuzzy by default but when they diverged Ceolurosauria elaborated more on the filaments capability, Carnosaurian would've possibly lost most of their plumage but retained some, and Megaraptora well.........who the hell knows at this point Shrug

Yes fluff is speculative, but no fluff wouldn't be detrimental to the animal.
