This is a Leaellynasaura amicagraphica, by John Conway. This is an experiment with imagining what these small dinosaurs might have looked like. The artists note that paleoartists always assume that dinosaurs were sleek, their bodies in the exact shape of their skeletons. But few animals today are shaped exactly like their skeletons. Maybe some dinosaurs were fat with giant, tufted tails.
