Yutyrannus shaded skull by pabluratops Yutyrannus shaded skull by pabluratops
This is my first serious attempt to redraw the Yutyrannus huali`s skull.

My main influences are the original drawing published in the original paper, and the Scott Hartman´s linear reconstruction of the skull, shown here:

The basic draw of the skull has been copied from the original paper. I added the diagenesis´s correction of the skull mentioned by S. Hartman and the sclerotic ring.

The mandible is partially inspired by the linear reconstruction, mainly the surangular shape of the mandible, but the number, and the shape of teeths are copied from the original photos published in David Hone`s blog:

Scale bar=20 cm. This drawing are based in the ELDM V1001 skull, the smallest and the most gracile of the Yutyrannus heads.

The black silhouette suggest the shape of the neck. This, and maybe the full body drawing too, will be complete in the future.

UPDATE:
I was corrected the shape of the "neck", now is more short than the previous image.

Mmh... I wonder if the ridge on the snout was the base of some sort of keratinous crest... The nose has something quite "proceratosaurid-ish" too (maybe the shape of the nostril, i don't know).

Yep. I try to draw Yutyrannus with a small Keratinous crest over the nasal bones.

Hola Zimices!

Interesante lo que me cuentas, debe tratarse de un efecto inesperado, porque no era la intención...
Pero está muy bien, es válido! jeje

Muy interesante, curiosamente el cráneo tiene una apariencia casi metálica :)
