It's a day late.
Last month at this time, I offered those who pay attention a full-size, quality line art which they can adapt to whatever color scheme they saw fit. Unfortunately, I got very few responses on this, to which I will acknowledge you all.
~Fragillimus335 provided two: One painted like an oriole, and one a lot more like a loon. I like the loon quite a bit, I must say.
~Orionide5 provided one with an extremely cassowary-like appearance, nice cryptic body plumage with a brilliant, display-oriented facial patterning.
~MommaCabbit gave us this detailed look, based on a cross between a sparrow, ptarmigan, prairie chicken and an ostrich; quite a lot of diversity there, suggestive of a secretive, camouflaged animal.
~PrimevalRaptor provided distinct accents in blueface with bright plumage contrast. Very nice.
*BrandonSPilcher provided a striking splash of golds and blues; this bird won't blend in.
I won't list amongst these those I would think are closer to the truth. Frankly, I wouldn't know where to start. All of them are very nice, and show off their skills and style equally for all that its based on something I drew that could have been much better drawn.
If I missed one of your submissions, please let me know! I do wish this had more entrants so as to provide a nice diversity. As is, MommaCabbit's definitely seems to me pretty close to what I'd imagine a desert animal to have, but the Nemegt fauna was fairly tropical, so we'd might see something more colorful.

Considering both 'accuracy' (I guess likelihood is a better word in this case) and style, I'd have to say MommaCabbit's is definitely my favorite. Fragillimus's loon is a close second.
dangit i haven't finished mine, i haven't had my tablet for a while ;n;
The submissions look really nice Can I still color it? The last two weeks I was in Asia and before that I was busy with finals...
You may continue to do this if you wish. The original is still freely available, and there will be no revoking of this.
Nice entries all around. I thought there would be more...I guess many deviants have contracted the summer laziness!!
