Fashion raptors? Convergent evolution? Why not? OK, I know this is not THE most probable situation, but it still could be in some cases.
After all, Sinosauropteryx is quite similar to a Red Panda… so why not to use modern birds color schemes for members of maniraptora? Even when their lifestyles are not the same than the birds I used as inspiration, I think it is an interesting work.
Each dinosaur was “dressed up” with an actual bird feather-scheme. The big name is for the dinosaur, the small name below is for the bird.
