Here's a WIP Turiasaurus, by me

Here is Segnosaurus. It is based on this source: http://the_dinosauria.tripod.com/therizinosaurs.html
I crossed its proportions with those of other therizinosaurs. Also I spent quite a lot of time trying to determine its size cause different sources suggested completely different sizes. In the end I used measurements from this study.

Wait did the big therizinosaurs have feathers? I thought it was just Beipiaosaurus!

Anyhow, I have a pretty good Apatosaurus drawing, but I can't post the pic from my device.

Beipiaosaurus was a basal therizinosaur, so more derived therizinosaurs probably inherited its plumage. Besides, feathers were probably a common trait shared by maniraptora in overall.

What concerned me the most was those massive foot claws, which come from its relative Erlikosaurus. If dromaeosaurs are scary with their elevated killer claws, then what about derived therizinosaurs which had FOUR of them?

Well, I wouldn't depict feathers on a dinosaur unless feather impressions were found, but to each their own I guess

I often take phylogeny and descendance into account when adding such traits. Which means that I was also adding feathers on Tyrannosaurus before I learnt that patches of fossilized skin have been found and it was probably bare. Although I still used artistic license and gave Tyrannosaurus some ornamental feathers. Cause a king needs a crown.

I think of it this way: Lions have manes. Jaguars, leopards, and tigers do not.
(Well, not exactly like that, but you get the idea)

And about the therizinosaur foot claws, don't you think they would have been a bit too slow to use them like droms did?

Definitely. They were too bulky and slow to utilise them like dromaeosaurs did. Which makes me wonder what would they need those monstrous claws for.

Well, I think I may know. They were top-heavy and leaning forward when they walked, so maybe the large claws helped the balance.
I mean, no way small claws could have!

Here are some more derived therizinosaurids. Erlikosaurus and Enigmosaurus are based on the Erlikosaurus/Enigmosaurus and Segnosaurus skeletals in this page: http://the_dinosauria.tripod.com/therizinosaurs.html

And here is the big guy. The "reaper lizard". I don't know if I have said it in the past but Therizinosaurus is one of my favorite dinosaurs. A creature tall like a giraffe with claws that any predator would be jealous of.

It is based partially on Greg Paul's composite therizinosaurid, but with some elements from the previously mentioned skeletals of Erlikosaurus and Segnosaurus. Primarily the pelvis. Paul seems to have given his therizinosaurid a Nanshiungosaurus style pelvis whereas I chose Enigmosaurus style.

I am also posting two comparisons with Deinocheirus and Tarbosaurus.

I'm moving closer to birds. Here is a gallery of my latest drawings.

Here are some oviraptorids. Oviraptor is based mainly on Citipati sp. but it has a completely hypothetical crest design.

Eventually I got bored of Oviraptorosaurs and decided to move on. Some designs on hold are Huanansaurus, Banji, Wulatelong, Corythoraptor, Nemegtomaia, Heyuannia and Khaan.

And here are some dromaeosaurids.

I'm totally not a professional, but I tried to draw it.

I believe your story has alternate endings. Have you thought of colouring these pictures.
