Teleocrater
As the embargo has now been lifted, I give you the skeletal of the basal bird-line archosaur Teleocrater.

Update: I swapped in the one without armor - the one with armor is what was used in the paper, but the authors ultimately concluded that it probably lacked phytosaur-like armor.

Confuciusornis
Possibly the most famous Mesozoic avialan after Archaeopteryx (and more safely embedded within Avialae), I finally got around to giving Confuciusornis the skeletal reconstruction treatment. This is based mostly on an unpublished specimen I got to photograph and measure in China most of a decade ago, supplemented by the Chiappe et al., monograph. The specimen I examined did not have proximally fused metacarpals - I'm not sure if that's individual variation, ontogenetic, etc., but I left it as-is.

My Patreon supporters got early access to the skeletal, including high resolution files: www.patreon.com/skeletaldrawin…

Plunderer from Utah
Edit 2017: At long last I can share the new Utahraptor skeletal drawing. This was first shared with my Patreon supporters in a public post here: www.patreon.com/posts/8625591

I also wrote a bit more about it on my blog: www.skeletaldrawing.com/home/a…

Go check out those two posts for more detailed information, but in short it's stocky, it's powerful, and it does NOT look like an overgrown Deinonychus or Velociraptor. All of you who have been waiting for years to see this should also go visit the Utahraptor Project (and consider supporting their GoFundMe site): utahraptors.utahpaleo.org/

Enjoy!

My colleagues and I just published a new paper (available here) that many of you might be interested in. In it we used laser-fluorescence to investigate soft-tissue data that was not apparent under visible light. It brings quite a bit of detail to what we know about Anchiornis, and for you paleoart types it should help you flesh out your small theropod reconstructions.

You can also read some of my own thoughts on it (mostly anatomy/paleoart related) on my blog here.
Ixalerpeton
I was really thrilled when this critter was published, as it wasn't really possible to nail down the proportions of any lagerpetid before this. Obviously I wish there was more information about the hands and the snout, but seriously, this was an amazing addition to our knowledge of what Triassic near-dinosaurs looked like.

Also, this truly looks like an animal that could have bounded around on all fours just about as easily as it could move bipedally (remember that when moving quadrupedally it probably would have lowered the ankle and moved with the hindlimb in a for plantigrade posture). From critters pretty much like this we get both the bipedal marasuchus-like dinosauromorphs, and apparently more quadrupedal silesaurids.

Patreon supporters had exclusive access to this for several weeks: www.patreon.com/skeletaldrawin…

Hi Scott, I just wanted to ask if your skeletals are open access? If so, how do I properly attribute the work to you? I'm working on a CAD drawing about measuring and I would like to use 2 of your skeletals. I didn't want to share or use it without permission.

Hi Scott, i am curious to see what your opinion is with this Tyrannosaurus size estimate.
Tyrannosaurus rex size.
i am also curious to know if you would value this estimate over your 2013 estimation (8400 kg) or not.

thanks in advance.

Do you have any updates planned of your sauropod skeletals (especially the diplodocids)?

Just wanted to say thank you. Your skeleton drawings are invaluable references for other artists like me. And thank you for always trying to keep them updated (as with the Stegosaurus piece I just looked at) and scientifically accurate. With so much out-dated and Jurassic Park-inspired dino art out there, it's difficult to find quality references.

again pardon Mr.Scott
but about telocarter (sorry if i spell anything wrong)
what do you mean by basal bird-line archosaur?

Archosaurs split into two crown groups - crocodilians and birds. So everything that is an archosaur is either on the line to crocodilians, or the line to birds (via other dinosaurs). Teleocrater is one of the oldest species on the side that leads to dinosaurs (including birds).
