The Fighting Deinos

Another mechanical pencil drawing finished up at a conference. Two Deinonychus have a power scuffle, with a younger rival attempting to displace a more experienced, dominant male. Could be over food, territory, or a female. Wouldn't want to get in between those claws! Poses inspired by two wonderful paintings: 'Hawking in the Olden Time' by Edwin Henry Landseer, and a beautiful piece of an Australian black falcon hunting Mulga parrots by Tony Pridham.
