I made a dromaeosaurid vs oviraptorid pixel art piece, each side equally represented. What folder should I submit it to?

Hey, recently added me to the group, and i recently appeared on deviantart. I am a fresh user with great passion and desire to expand her. All interested are welcome to my gallery where i have only a little more than 10 works (at this moment) . I would like to get as many people have shared with me what you think about my work, and if at all worthwhile to me to continue my adventure on this page. Thank you, best regards. <?xml:namespace prefix = da />:) (Smile)

Why is it that Spinosaurids are rarely depicted to have feathers, when theropod lines that branched off both before and after them often are? What's with the double-standard or discrimination or whatever? What is it about the "croc-jaws" that seems to make so many artists shy away from putting feathers on Spinosaurids when they'll eagerly feather nearly anything else in the theropod lines?
Better question:

Why are so many non-coelurosaurian theropods except Spinosaurids depicted with feathers? Feathers have only been found is coelurosaurs.

And about your question, it's because they think feathers aren't good for semiaquatic lifestyle.

Actually, they've put Sciurumimus in the Megalosauroidea line, and it has proto-feathers. Personally, I think it's a mistake to have it there. Just wishful thinking on the part of the paleotologists who found it - wanting to be the first to find a feathered non-coelurosaurian.

But there are feather types (penguins & auks) that are good for semiaquatic lifestyles. At the same time, though, you have to look at the fact that these bigger beasties would not have had the flexibility to preen all of those feathers properly for an aquatic/semiaquatic lifestyle. Their necks don't have the appropriate vertebrae and their spines are too long between the scapula and the ilium. (Plus any spinosaurid with a "sail" would have additional difficulties in the flexibility realms.)
I think it's some form of mistake as well. Someone placed Sciurumimus as a basal coelurosaur, which makes a lot more sense:
