Gallosaurus gregpaulus by yoult Gallosaurus gregpaulus by yoult
Ah, the beauty of unfeathered Theropds!

Made in appreciation to Gregory S. Paul's terrific works and genius, who has surely inspired many of us paleoartists.
Paul has a very unambiguous style and I hope I have copied it fair enough. Please note, that this is an imitation of Paul's old, rather vintage, works where feathers and filaments weren't confirmed.
You can take it also as sideswipe to all those "oh my god... feathery plushy dinosaurz look so lame and awfull"-guys out there.

Dear Greg,
if you ever happen to see this (what I don't expect) please don't take this as a shameless plagiarism but as the recognition you deserve appart from to posture-copyright-bullshit.


I think it's not to hard to guess what animal this may be.

Sorry for taking so long to comment, but this is probably my favorite "All Todays" deviation, partly b/c of the PDofW reference & partly b/c chickens look really cool like this (especially with those stripes).

What's up with all these Greg Paul satires? Are these just reactions to his copyright nonsense, or are you overlooking how important his reconstructions have been?

And what? You asked, "What's up with all these Greg Paul satires?" Yoult pretty much answered that when he said, "Made in appreciation to Gregory S. Paul's terrific works and genius, who has surely inspired many of us paleoartists.

So is it a way to pay tribute or is this simply getting back at him for the copyright-bullshit?

O, tha ancient Gallosaurus!
I can see them running from all over the world, they, together with Mustherium and Columbasaurus were one of the most succesfull species from the late quaternary. This small creaters hunted in packs, killing everything that they found on their way, including humans. But, they ate not only the meat, but also cereals, like coin. The males were very agressive, fighting to death against rivals.
I loved your art!

It's sort of funny in the sense that, because I eat so many of these things, all I can see is... well... dinner walking around on two legs. I think it distracts a bit, but it's not like that's a bad thing. Like I said, it's even funnier because of it.

But it really makes me want to see a large bird of prey and something like a "ratite," maybe a Cassowary in this weird JP sort of style. Even better, something like an Eagle drawn in a running pose like this, with the arms dropping down so it looks all weird and malformed. xD

Hey, that reminds me, whatever happened to Horner's Chicken-o-saurus pet project? Is that still a thing, or... ?

To be honest, a reptilisized Ratite wouldn't be much more grosser than an Ornithomimid or an Oviraptosaurid in the same style, despite it wouldn't have such a long tail.
The funniest of the Ratites (excluding the Kiwi) would be perhaps the Emu with it's tiny abelisaurid-like wings. :D
With a bird-of-prey I would have my problems. Those "boots" ain't for walking, their feet are much more like hands und the long claws make walking impossible (they much more jump arround on ground). But of course that sounds quite interesting and I may give it a try some day.

I don't follow Horner's gyri of the brain very much, but wasn't that just a theorisized book about that gross CHicken-o-Saurus?

No, he really wants to do it. For real. He's been trying to get money for it too. At least that was the last I ever heard about it.

Not really sure what's going on with that now, though. It is a mystery...

This is pure genius. It looks awesome, but nothing like the real animal, just like all those raptors out there.

If birds were extinct alongside their relatives, paleoartists probably would restore them like this.

Is it wrong I want to see a version of this with pronated wrists? That would really make it perfect for me. =P

Actually I had planned to draw the wrists pronated, but I've found no way doing this without breaking the bones, which would have resulated in an unreliable look.
But thank you anyway!

I must disagree with your statements, for I believe that they are solitary and hunted like eagles :p. I care not for being called a lunatic, for I go by the actual fossil evidence.

Wait what? You either must be insane or suffer from a brain disease!
I never heard of anyone who believed a Dinosaur could ever behave like a... a Bird! What? That's just crazy!
The fossil evidence of Gallosaurus obviously states that we have here a coldblooded and dumb reptile, nothing else.

:D I wonder what one would say if he/she doesn't take the joke...

Much like Galileo Galilei, I may seem utterly made, but I believe that the evidence speaks for itself. And it seems your basing much, if not all, of your so called "facts" more on conjecture then hard data. You may need to reevaluate your hypothesis ;).

I think they'd be to confused by it and would most likely leave it alone :giggle:.

I would feel bad about having this chicken sandwich right now, but I'am not.

Because it's delicious, like your note.

I like to rant 'bout GSP stuff, cause, he managed to write a Princeton dinosaur book, but still hasn't changed his style.

If all records of what we know of birds are somehow destroyed, and chicken fossils are unearthed in a future Earth: this is how future paleoartists will reconstruct the chicken. ;)
