Okay, I had to draw one of these things.
What is a balaur bondoc? It’s this new type of dromeosaur (same family as a velociraptor) they just found in Romania. You know how velociraptors only had one sickle claw on the hind feet?
This baby had two.
So here’s my interpretive sketch. Since everybody on DA (and I mean EVERYBODY) is drawing really far-out versions of them, usually as semi-feathered dragonish things, I thought I’d go with the lizardy Jurassic Park look.
And since they found nothing of the head, I made my with snubby jaws and big jowls. If the hands weren’t good for grasping, but he killed stuff with his back feet, he probably had really strong jaws for biting.
This was actually fun to draw. I might be coming out of my slump a little.
