Re: R: theropod crests

Yes, I've seen Dan's painting (in fact, I was one of the first), although I'm not too sure what sort of reference he used. I'm trying to "go to the source," so to speak, and not use second-hand material. That said, John Conway was kind enough to send me some photos he had of the back of the crest.
Thanks, Filippo.

Hi Jordan,
this may not be exactly what you were asking for (guess you wanted skeletal
reconstructions) , but you may find a painting by list member Daniel Bensen
to be quite informative on the overall shape of the crest of C. ellioti
(assuming it's correctly restored, which i think it is, since Headden's
description of the structure made me think of a similar shape);
the picture in question should be easily accessible via Daniel's site (it
depicts a couple of "Cryos" ).
