Love doves by DuskyVel Love doves by DuskyVel
A small sketch I did featuring a Deinonychus couple being cuddly and preening each other :>

It is good that you drew the softer side of deinonychus, and not just it killing things.

Unlikely, given that Deinonychus was probably superprecocial and so had no need for pairing, but cute.

Tell that to geese.

Precocial young able to walk and eat immediately, but strong pair bond and parental protection.

Geese are precocial, not superprecocial. They do not have developed wings and grow very rapidly, while juvenile non-Neornithes paravians all have rather developed forelimbs (in at least Enantiornithes its clear that flight was possible for newborns) and took years to reach full size.

A close modern analogue would be megapodes.

Then explain crocodilians.

Miniature versions of adults with full locomotor skills. Extended parental care.

First, goalshifting.

Second, crocodilian parental care is known to be very recent, based on studies on notosuchians.

Firstly, doesn't matter.

Secondly, parental care is basal in archosaurs; it's likely the majority had it. Where was the study in question? I'd like to have a look at it.

"Doesn't matter"? Lol, you're literally evading

As for the rest, the "reproduction" section on Wikipedia's Archosaur page got you covered. Archosaur parental care evolved independently a few times, but as a whole the group had a primarily superprecocial life cycle.

So, basically, you're saying that dinosaurs did not look after their young... despite all the evidence they did.

I love it ! Excellent anatomy, accurate feathering with a rather original though definitely bird-like arrangement for the head, neat details (the eyes and nictating membrane) and a very mondane yet rarely drawn behaviour. Excellent ! :D If I really had to nitpick, it would be that you can allow yourself to put more feathers on the tail, Zhenyuanlong-style, since the Microraptor-style tail fan might be more the exception than the norm for eudromaesaurids. But it is still a topic of debate so you can as you please at this point. ^^ Again, excellent work ! :D

Nice to see some other behaviour for these guys. Doesn't always have to be Tenontosaurus-killing ;) (Wink) 
Really digging the anatomy and detail!
