Favorite Dinosaur Reconstructions

Just curious as to what everyone's favorite depictions of paleobiology are.

Mine is probably this reconstruction of Ouranosaurus:

For one I love the color palette, but also the fact that the neural spines are sort of sailed and humped, neither to the extreme.

What is/are your favorite reconstruction(s)?

Thank you for the set, Azrael!

I'm a big fan of those depictions in which the animals, particularly the maniraptors, are depicted almost as if they were birds yet without over-doing it; I think that's how the animals most likely looked. Very bird-like, yet not quite a bird.

I'll try to locate it, but my favorite was this picture of these two Deinonychus heads sticking up out of the bushes, the way the feathers were detailed and colored was outstanding.

I like my dinosaurs feathered, but not too overdone or underdone, such as overfluffiness and complete scaliness, mainly in the majority of theropods.
Quills, humps instead of sails, etc.

(color may be a bit overdone)

I'm too lazy to show my views of other dinosaurs, I'll probably post em' later.

The WWD Coelophysis is neat although I think the real animal likely had at least some sort of primitive protofeather pelage.

And Planet Dinosaur's velociraptor was great for its time although it has some errors now, like the inaccurate arm feathering.

The muzzle also seems too thick.

I'm looking forward to seeing the Quetzalcoatlus from the upcoming WWD film. They look beautiful, and quite accurate! They certainly make up for the talking Pachyrhinosaurus and scaly Gorgosaurus. :D

Although I'm totally open to the idea of them having a hump, I'm a bit biased toward sailed Spinosaurus. He's always been my favorite dinosaur even since I was a kid. Here are a few of my favorite restorations:

Why do these birds totally don't care about one of them is eaten alive?

because they owed some money to the dead one.

i've always liked this T-rex reconstruction: maybe it could use more feathers (maybe, i can't tell if it's feathered or not) but i like the pattern a lot

Mine are the ones by Joshua Knuppe (the ones Chali showed) and Julio Lacerda.
