Carnotaurus is a mouth with legs by ScottHartman Carnotaurus is a mouth with legs by ScottHartman
Seriously - I feel like it's a caricature of a real theropod.

Of course all abelisaurs are weird. The lower legs and much of the tail are restored after Aucasaurus, but otherwise it's a remarkably complete specimen.

For those who don't know, this guy was also found with extensive skin impressions. Scales on this one! That included irregular rows of large non-bony scute-like scales down the top and sides of the animal.

Have you ever considered posting your images at a larger size?  There have been a few cases (such as the maxilla-facial layout and forelimbs here, or the hip structure in some of your Apatosaurs) where I would love to get a closer look at the workings.

On my website I occasionally post them larger. At some point I'll probably do some sort of web booklet with higher resolution images, but I'm totally out of extra time these days.

I know the feeling.
Size aside, I'm still a bit in awe of these images.  They're appreciated.

Carnotaurus would have a hard time clapping like that ;)

At one point I believe a cast of some of the impressions were on display at the LACM. Yet despite having just been there last year during SVP I can't recall offhand if that is still on display in the overhauled displays. Otherwise I presume the originals are housed (and possibly displayed) at the Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales in Argentina. There's also a photo or two in the Czerkas 1997 paper in the Dinofest volume.

Are there any estimates about how fast this guy was? I've heard lots of stuff but I have no idea what to believe...

I never knew it had such a long neck and tiny head. You always see it restored wrong I guess with a really big head.

I think some illustrations may be influenced by the villain in Disney's Dinosaur.
