Coming up with coloration for dinosaurs, for me, is about 20% cladistics, 30% ecology and 50% guesswork. That 30% is probably the trickiest part. Dinosaurs were animals that filled ecological niches, just like animals today. If we have a rough idea of the environment of a prehistoric creature, we can use modern animals in similar roles as a starting point. For example, we know that Velociraptor’s environment was mostly desert dunes, so it’s reasonable to depict them with coloring similar to a road runner or other desert bird. It may be that Alvarezsaurs were insectivorous, so sometimes they are depicted as having a plumage that resembles the long hairs of an anteater.
