The Oviraptor Saga.

If there’s an  animal that perfectly suits the creativity of any dinosaur illustrator it is the enormous array of oviraptorosaur species. Here I used several well known species (known from well described fossil specimens) as well as several  as yet to be described, unnamed species (I’ve got hold of beautiful casts of those). They range from the big American caenagnathid to the small, crestless Conchoraptor. Most oviraptorids have been collected in Mongolia, and the most popular of them are Citipati and  Khaan… that have been found associated with nests and eggs. You can see the nesting saga of Citipati at my website at

Of course, things got well out of hand when the T. rex sized Gigantoraptor was discovered in Mongolia!
