Dinosaurs with feathers, like Khaan, are often portrayed as extra fluffy. In and of itself that is not a problem and this illustration of Khaan is actually not anywhere near as fluffy as it could be. The coloration of this version is quite simple but very interesting and it even seems appropriate for the dino-bird depiction of the animal. The chicks are, as they often are in illustrations of near bird dinosaurs, very reminiscent of extant ducks. Were these dinosaurs roaming in this form today, I would definitely work at whatever zoo or sanctuary reared those fluffy looking chicks.
